Terrible, nonsense sentence aside, it is nearly October and I'm hovering somewhere between stretching out on my grandparents' graves with a pitcher of lime daiquiris for a long nap, and trying to arrange the last few items on the Great October Book Giveaway to-do list (while drinkng a pitcher of lime daquiris.)
My third-annual giveaway is not the only party going on around these parts in October. There is a crazy amount of mischief to get up to in the blogosphere this coming month. I'll do my best to point out what sounds wonderful and wicked to me, and I hope you'll let me know what kind of naughtiness you get up to as well!
Just skimming the surface of the October madness, Magaly over at Pagan Culture is hosting her annual All Hallows Grim again, and the Samhain Sirens are running amok starting October 1st. Also - if you are on Facebook, do stalk the lovely and fiercely intelligent Judika Illes on her fan page. She is doing a "month of witches" and will also be giving away some Halloween loot.
Happening just after October's end is the Pagan Podkin Super Moot in New Orleans. If you are in the area, or want to fly in, because it's New Orleans, then do check out the meet and greet where you can chat with some truly wonderful podcasting folks (and some bloggers who were invited to play with the cool kids!) I've not given up hope of attending, but now that I need to replace my car, it's looking like I may have to sell a kidney to do so. I'm not even kidding - I have two rather awesome kidneys - I'll trade one for a plane ticket.
Back to the world of blog - I do want to mention that at least two of my favourite bloggers have responded to my post about Little Witcheries and have pulled back the curtain on their own magical lives. Please do run over and read Danni's post at The Whimsical Cottage and Cory's revelations at New World Witchery. If anyone else has shared their daily or household witcheries, please leave your link to the post in the comments - I'd love to read it!
It is hard to believe that September is winding down. I do hope you had a lovely full moon and autumn equinox this past week! As October draws near, it's time to get out your pumpkin-colored party hats, your mini candy bar of choice, and your favourite divination system. I predict it's going to be a fantastic month!
