First of all, the foresthouseeyes auctions are going really well. I've added three--well, two, until I can figure out why the comm keeps eating my third entry--paperback copies of Movies in Fifteen Minutes (everything from me is here). Diane Duane has put up some signed books of her own; John K. Snyder III has donated a Sandman sketch; and there's a 1963 issue of a magazine featuring "the first ever published story by 14 year old schoolboy Terry Pratchett." I've also tagged everything with keywords and end dates, so you can browse "jewelry" or "fanfiction" or "harry potter" or "end date: october 28" (see all the tags here). You can also see a full list of all the auctions by going to the list of October entry titles. By doctoraicha's count, a projected $2600 has been raised, which is really close to the $3000 foresthouse has to cough up by the end of the month. So thank you so, so much.

Meanwhile, if you missed it, there was a ~shocking~ Secret Life of Dolls two-parter this weekend, 200 comments' worth of OMG WHAT, etc.

I've managed to catch up on all my linkspam news-reading, but will not be able to post any tonight (again), because now both of my grandmothers are in the hospital. My mother's mother, who we had to get 24-hour nurses and a wheelchair, is now in the hospital--still waiting on a room some six hours after she got there--with my mother. She's had an x-ray, and apparently she broke two bones in her foot in a fall the other week, but because she has neuropathy and can't feel much in that leg, she had no idea. And my mother took her in the first place because she had a really worrying dizzy/weak spell she didn't seem to be getting better from; we weren't even expecting that. I'm scared, honestly. So. I'm going to visit her tonight, and will try my best to keep on top of everything else.
