Okay. The laptop is charging, the coffee is on, the child is heavily sedated. Are we set?

P.S. She's actually painting rainbows, don't worry.

I've done my civic duty today (ie voted in our federal election), and am hoping to at least brainstorm some ideas before heading off to my friend's election night party. 

Good luck everyone!

I already have a feeling my entry is gonna be somewhat stupid and snarky with these prompts. Snarky worked for me last round, let's see if I can pull it off again.

I told myself I wouldn't start writing tonight, yet here I am! This is my first SSC, and thus my first finals round, so I was wondering - does gravedigger need to be taken literally? Or can you use it as a more metaphorical term, like someone "digging a grave" for themselves or for someone around them? Is that cheatsy, or would that fall under the umbrella of adhering to the prompt?

I have family visiting tomorrow, so basically I have like...tonight and early tomorrow morning to write this.

Gonna make coffee for sure.

Right now I have three ideas I'm trying to choose between. None of them particularly brilliant.

Good question. I'm also wondering about "side effect." Does it have to be of a medication or treatment, which is the strict definition? Otherwise, "side effect" can mean just about anything. I'm inclined to go literal just to be safe, but then again, I don't want to limit myself.
