Masterlist of unclaimed prompts

Edit link for my convenience

I decided to do it this way again because honestly, my ability for new things is sapped this year. I don't even drink new flavors of tea with the pandemic. You can ask my sister, she'll confirm that! So it was easier to do it this way rather than try to figure out if I could set up a Googledoc where some people could edit but all people could tag. (PM me if I can.)

I appreciate people letting me know that prompts have been claimed. The easiest way to do that is to leave a comment here with the prompt text exactly as written so I can quickly find it and delete it. Just copy and paste. You can also comment or PM me if I made an error somewhere and I'll fix it ASAP.

As a reminder, last year's post can be found here. If you fill one of those prompts and want to let me know, please be clear that it's from last year :)

Amazing.

Today, my mother happened to say that she didn't know where her old missal was that was her grandfather's that he got in 1889. She'd had it at her office in her desk, and eventually it came home during an office move, and she thought she'd kept it safe but maybe it got cleared out in a purge.

Sometime later she called me down to check and make sure her TV was plugged in properly. As I'm poking around back there I glanced down and noticed a very small, dust-covered book. It occurred to me that a black, palm-sized book might be a religious thing, so I picked it up, confirmed that it was written in French, and tossed it to my mother on the couch.

That's some amazing timing there! This entry was originally posted at https://conuly.dreamwidth.org/3163485.html. If you can, please comment there using OpenID or your Dreamwidth account.

I had to head to the South Shore quite a lot these past two weeks

and I gotta say, it was surreal seeing the political campaign signs change so completely and quickly halfway down the bus ride.

But seriously, this election is intense, and I have not been paying any attention at all, and with ranked choice voting I guess I should have. Who am I picking for mayor etc guys?

We've been going through season 5 of B5

It's been going slowly because... well... look, are we supposed to hate Byron this much? Because I cannot stand him and his creepy cult leader vibe. (Fair's fair, though, kudos to whoever figured out that telepaths are both creepy and budget friendly if they never talk.)

I wanna toss him and Bester in a room, and not in a shippy tropey way, I just want them to stay locked up. This entry was originally posted at https://conuly.dreamwidth.org/3162551.html. If you can, please comment there using OpenID or your Dreamwidth account.

So, we went to K's memorial.

She was a big fan of bowling, so her daughter held it at the bowling alley. We bowled, coached by K's granddaughter, who coaches beginner bowling with four year olds and whose high school team is apparently headed to nationals. Which just goes to show the power of starting them young, I guess.

It's been a rough year for their family. Here's hoping that once more of the population is vaccinated, things finally start looking up. This entry was originally posted at https://conuly.dreamwidth.org/3161929.html. If you can, please comment there using OpenID or your Dreamwidth account.
