SRHowen has been bumped by request. That leaves things to the heir apparent, Angyl78.

One more day for Angyl78. If she fears to tread here, I'm afraid a fool will rush in.

Excellent! Glad to hear it Our next tribute is pyrosama; you know her as the girl on fire!

...not a fan of that book/movie but had to do it anyway. Incidentally, since this is a short month, let's get rolling on ideas for December. You've already seen how my original ideas clear out the room like a wasp at a bee sting allergy support group, so there's your incentive!

Yes, I do try to steer away from anything too obvious like that. But we have taken things that are tangentially similar, like "Home for the Holidays" or (shudder) "Winter Nightmare."

Honestly, though, I'd be all for "Leather-Clad Ray-Gun Chickliens from the Crab Nebula" for December so long as people wanted it.

pyrosama has been moved down the list by request. However, at this point, the list is so short that won't make too much difference.

randi.lee inherits her position as tribute. She now has the opportunity to turn a mediocre book about murderkids into a multimedia phenomenon.

Okay, it's after the 12th so SRHowen should be good to go.

Anyone else for blog chain ideas? The Mayan Apocalypse is the only suggestion so far.
