Greetings everyone! I'm putting up this post a day early as I anticipate to be very busy tomorrow and Saturday (my home street is very close amongst a few houses where families have lived since before I was born has lost a predominant face suddenly and I have offered my help with anything they need, if only to keep the grandkids occupied).

Underneath the cut is a simple survey form. Keep in mind this questionnaire is voluntary as this check in is optional at this point in time. I will be posting some things to the social community at some point this weekend. Just please bear with me at this time.

August 30th is nearing closer and closer! Make sure you spread the word! We currently have only 14 authors signed up. A small but hopefully successful round it looks to be. I am personally hoping that we can get at least 20 people participating. I know it's hard with summer and the infamous NaNo coming (but you could double dip!), even if you get something started is always a plus in my book.

Links to banners, rules, and the schedule are listed in the side menu of the comm.

Mod Note:Also, if you already signed up, you should have an invitation pending. Last I checked, there were two outstanding on accepting their invites.

I've received a few messages asking about the hurt/comfort bigbang and if it we will be making another attempt at it. Previously, when I was working on the community, RL threw a few curve balls and I lost my computer at the time. It took awhile for me to get another one but by the time that I had, there were other things that just became so overwhelming that I didn't think of anything online.

Since life has stabilized here (*crosses fingers*), I want to try to get this going for a complete and successful season. But in doing so, I would like to find two new co-mods to work with me on this so that if I, or anyone else is running behind on getting a specific post up or answer questions, there is someone available that can jump in.

I created a new email address for the community so questions can also be directed there as it goes directly to my phone. The new address is listed on the community profile here and on the new header image on the comm layout.

I am currently reviewing prospective dates for the challenge as well as other details. If you are interested in working with me as a co-mod, please reply to this entry (all comments are screened) with what you are willing and able to offer in your assistance.

Thank you.

Spoke with Meekosan briefly today on Yahoo instant messanger....

First off, she sent get well wishes to not_from_stars & hopes she feels a whole lot better soon. She also said to just focus on getting well & not to worry about anything else.

Secondly, re: the HCBB -
The reason why Meek hasn't been around is because her laptop finally gave out completely & permanently. It's going to take a while for her to be able to afford a new one. She thanks anyone & everyone for their offers of help with this BB. For now, it's on hold until she can find a way back on the net. She hopes that those who were having trouble finishing their stories by the original deadline will now be able to finish them & that she will be back with all of you soon

Okay, so, our other mod, not_from_stars is very, very, very sick right now. Way too sick to do anything that involves being out of bed at all, much less doing anything with the computer.

Does anybody have ANY way of contacting meekosan? PMing her hasn't worked and she needs to know that her co-mod is presently too sick to continue running things.

Here is your Check In survey! Sorry for the delay. I got dragged out of my house and then running around the house dealing with the dreaded SuperBowl (completely forgot that was TODAY). Have at it! Anyone that responds will be tallied for active/withdraw from this. If you don't respond to the poll, I will consider you MIA. Sorries but it's just easier to track names with the way things are going. Have a good night and don't drink too many beers!

In it to win it (Like the NY Giants!)

If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhea, does that mean the 5th one enjoys it?

No silly, the 5th person doesn't have diarrhea!
You just never know what some people will enjoy.
I wouldn't know...*closes medicine closet that is stocked to the brim of Immodium*
You're disgusting but funny.
Who cares. I just want my bunny back.

For those of you still in this, I will be getting the official check in and status post made. This is just a friendly public service announcement to give you a heads up to put together a little note or something (save it in like MS Notepad to have ready) with your information.

Please include:

Please do not reply to this post with this information. This information is for the SUNDAY post ONLY, or via email. The details will be in the Sunday post. Thanks.

Again, my apologies for everything. I hadn't planned on real life to blow up in my face like it had this month. In short, if you wish to know what happened, I first lost a dear pet in the beginning of the month. Work is giving me the runaround about the transfer that they wanted for me to do and I was more than eager for. Another pet, only 4 weeks old died. Cousin #1 is 18, pregnant, and trying to get married. Cousin #2 is in the hospital with unknown but likely immuno-related disorder. The doctors still don't know anything except she is in bad shape.

So...if you want to bail on the BigBang because I haven't kept up with the schedule as I wished, I do not blame you but I thought I would just share just how effed up things are here for me but I am going to bend over backwards to get back in the game myself.

I am incredibly sorry that I haven't made the Check In post yet. I will get it up by Thursday. Unfortunately the new year has not started out very well with me with a great deal of upsetting events going on in my family and having started a new job (and being transferred to a new department all within 3 months).

Please be patient with me this week. I will get caught up with everything.
