Going On Dead?

Good luck with the open house.

S. W. Vaughn said...

Ooh, nice guess, Jaye! (Is she right?)

God of Darkness?
(or doom? death? destruction? donuts? LOL)

I second the good luck with the open house thing. :-)

Guardian of Death.

Are you serving refreshments by any chance? Can we crash?

Kelly Parra said...

Great Old Dog?
Ghost Of Denial?

Guardian of Darkness (combining other people's guesses... :-)

Is anyone close?

Are you sure there aren't drinks? LOL

Gone on Diatribe

Which leads me to consider the word "diatribe" in a new light. Die-a-tribe? Is it a hidden message? Is somebody warning us with this entry in the dictionary?

Ghost of Desperation
Ghost of Destiny

Ooh, title fun! I love prizes--even when they're nothing prizes!

Garden of Darkness (my serious guess)
Garden of (the) Dead (but that would make the acronym GOTD...)
Groovin' on Darkness (because I'm sad PI2: Electric Boogaloo appears to have been nixed)
Getting Over Disco (another in the PI2:EB collection)
Garlic or Daylight: Tuonela Throwdown

I'd better stop now...

Bill Cameron said...

Garlic or Daylight: Tuonela Throwdown

My fave so far. :D

Garden of Darkness seems like a really good guess. I'm thinking that's an apt phrase for Old Tuonela.

anne frasier said...

haha!
S.W., you were close! i didn't want to give any hints because i was having too much fun reading the guesses.

and the winner is: LAURA ADRIAN with GARDEN OF DARKNESS!

i'll get a box of nothing to you right away!

there! done!

loved all the goofy titles. a lot of great title ideas in there too. it makes me wonder if it might work to come up with an acronym first, then a title.

anne frasier said...

bill, we were posting at the same time. AGAIN! yeah, i have to look through these and pic my favorites. a lot of hilarious ones.

S. W. Vaughn said...

Ooh, couple of letters off! Drat. Hey Laura, will you share the nothing with me? :-)

Love the title, Anne. Can't wait to read it!!!

(Bill... grrr! No comments on your blog! Well, belated congratulations on the upcoming release. Kick some ass! :-)

What?! It's not PI2: Electric Boogaloo?! Dammit.

Re. open house...we moved a zillion times when I was growing up & my mom always used to put a little vanilla in a piece of tin foil & turn the oven on low for half an hour before the event. Made the house smell weirdly homey a la Donna Reed bakin' cookies in the kitchen. She swears that the little olfactory stuff helps. Then again, it's my mom...

Bill Cameron said...

Sorry, Anne! When I took my little break, I knew I would keep being tempted by comments. But I just turned them on again!

Of course, then I will be gone for three days! haha

cinderelly said...

great title! good luck on the open house! angie's mom is right about the house smelling 'homey', my daughter was (is) a real estate agent, and she tells clients to make the house smell good.

Lara Adrian said...

OMG, I won! I won!!!

I can't wait to receive my prize of nothing, Anne! Will be glad to share nothing with everyone! :-P

I have to say, I love the title GARDEN OF DARKNESS. As soon as I saw the acronym and thought about Tuonela as "land of the dead" Garden of Darkness popped right into my head. If you hadn't claimed it, I may have been tempted to use it one day meself!

Lara, still bummed about the Boogaloo...

anne frasier said...

damn. blogger ate my long reply, and now i have to run. thanks for all the nice well-wishes. lara, that's so kind of you to share your nothing! and you'll be amazed to find that there's plenty to go around.

angie and cinderelly, you are so right about scents. damn. i had a long response to that, but it's gone, gone, gone. i usually highlight and save just in case. didn't do it this time. arghh!

Hulles said...

Once again I'm too late for nothing. Sigh.

Heather Harper said...

WTG Lara. I was stumped.

I was leaning toward Gigolo Of Darkness, AKA Pale Immortal does the electric boogaloo.
