Getting Ready for the TGIO

In between corralling my snow-crazed children, I’ve been trying to decide what to wear to TGIO…

ML t-shirt

NaNo 2009 Novelling Machine

Horrendous Year Two ML t-shirt

Yes, it really is a sort of day-glo yellowy green. Some MLs wear these in public. I will only do this if someone makes a large donation to NaNoWriMo. I would also like to point out that this was free. Trust me. I would not pay money for this top.

Mojito kit

I also had to gather together my supplies for mojito making. I’ll post the recipe here later.


And I’ve been hunting out the giveaway posters – Night of Writing Dangerously (small) and Nanoland 2010 (large). I’m intending on making a NaNoWriMo keyring this evening too (time permitting) and sending out a few of my penguin pencils. I use “Great Expectations” myself, but up for grabs is “A problem a day/while Rome burns” (yellow), “Venture to the Interior/One’s Company”(pale pink) , “Words and Deeds/Vision and Design” (pale blue), and “The unfinished clue/Deadly Weapon” (green).

Penguin Pencils and beads for the keyring

If you want to be in on any of these giveaways (I think I’ll draw from my trusty anti-snow hat), then go and log a comment on the online TGIO thread at the Nano official site. Obviously you do need to be a member of the Ireland NorthEast region to be in the draw. If you win, I will post here and on that thread and you’ll need to email me your postal address (don’t put it as a comment on the blog – that’s a bit too public, I think).

OK. I better go and get dinner sorted for my family. I’ll be back online later for the TGIO.
