I haven't had much time to feel anxious, but now that things have settled down here, I'm feeling the butterflies. Good luck everyone! I can't wait to start reading stories again next week!

Yikes, Jon, I didn't know you were located in the thick of Irma. I'm sorry. Hope all is well with you and yours and that the scores will give you a good (and happy!) distraction from your current reality. (And yes, I look forward to the reading frenzy next week as well).

Just stocked up on brews. Actually took the day off tomorrow (I also very much need the rest). So I'm more than ready.

Jon, sorry to read this. I know a few people down in Florida, and they've been hit pretty hard. Not like St. Maarten, but still. This was, almost literally, a sh*tstorm. A sh*tty storm at the very least.

Best of luck and butterflies, all!

Oy. I'm in the middle of cleaning/fixing/painting the duplex we're buying and the tenant left a mess. They had 4 cats and chain smoked. And they never, freakin', cleaned up. Ever. In 4 years. And the cats all had diarrhea. Explosively. This weekend I'm going to start the priming of the walls and I'll be writing with no energy. Negative energy even. You can call me Negasonic Mid-Thirties Something Bedhead.

Have you tried renting an ozone machine to get the smells out? I hear they work wonders, especially on smoke.

Yeah, borrowing one from a friend. The carpet is a problem. Don't have the time or money to replace it atm. Need to pull back a corner, though; if there's hardwood then I might be lucky.

Oh great! I've got my fingers crossed for you to find hardwood under the carpet! :)

So I guess I'm going to bed now so I can be up at 6 in the morning (= midnight in NY) and check the results. Hope I can sleep a bit.

Plan here is beer and vidja games. Then freak out. Then more beer, regardless.

I'm glad I live on the west coast, so the results will be 8:59 (assuming they're on time), early enough I can freak the eff out and/or have a drink (depending on the results) and still get to bed at a decent hour. Tomorrow's first day back to work after a one-week vacation, already fallen out of the habit of getting up at 5:15 AM. 
Good luck everyone!
