I’m posting late this morning, partly because I’m dragging after my second stint out at Nicola’s to get all the preordered INTO THE WOODS signed. So-o-o, If you ordered before yesterday, know that yours is ready and waiting to go out. The last date to order and hope to get it on the drop date is October 3rd. You can still get one after that, but it won’t arrive on that magical day. -laugh- If you want one, check out the original post. HOW TO GET YOUR SIGNED INTO THE WOODS As I said, I’ll be going back one more time to Nicola’s to sign.
Also, I have the okay to share my NYCC schedule! My PR person outdid herself, and I have something on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so if you’re going, there’s a better chance our schedules will mesh.

So, that’s it, other than its national Cheeseburger day. Munch, munch, munch.
And as a final thing to make you go Hummm. Guy ran into a poll this morning that said 86% of people polled feel that Christmas needs to be advertised no sooner than Nov. 1st, and of that 86%, 47% would prefer it to be advertised after Thanksgiving. I’ve not seen any snowflakes yet, but I’ve seen the Halloween costumes. Where’s my candy!
