quote is so adorable.)
Welcome to JABB's 9th
(can't even believe it!) annual Halloween issue. Despite being
absurdly crunched for time, I really enjoyed writing this issue and
hope you enjoy reading it. As with last year, this Halloween
issue is also a contest. But I'll get to that later.
First, I'd like to
present a story about yet another Halloween party in Dyeland.
However, this year the Dyelanders really have something up their
sleeves! Question is, how will Andrew react to their enthusiasm
for the day he claims "gives death a bad reputation"? So, please
read the story. You won't regret it. Especially if you have
a fondness for Andrew, Adam, or both. Cause their costumes
are... well, just read it and see!
You can find the story
Another reason to read
the story is it just may help you with the contest below. What I
did was make up some Halloween-themed trivia questions about
JABB. Answer as many as you can and you just may be our prize
winner! First, a few guidelines:
1. Please read
the general Contest
Rules and Information. That will tell you what we do in the
event of a tie, what happens if you win but do not want a prize, and
also list all the available prizes.
2. The deadline
for this contest is November 7th. I will not accept any answers
after that. There is no advantage to being the first to get your
answers to me.
3. Feel free to
use the JABB
Encyclopedia for help. I certainly don't expect anyone to
know these from memory.
4. Send the
answers ONLY to Jenni.
Sending it elsewhere will lead to disqualification. It is vital
that your answers reach me at an account only I have access to.
So your answers must be sent to either of those addresses.
5. I wrote this
contest completely on my own with out consulting anyone.
Therefore, everyone on JABB besides myself (including co-founders and
members of the Sisterhood) are eligible to win since they had no
advance knowledge of the type or content of this contest.
Now for the contest...
1. Starting with 2005's
Halloween JABB, JABB newsletters regularly begin with an opening quote

number please, thanks!)
2. The story told
in last year's Halloween JABB finds Lady JenniAnn away
from Dyeland when the festivities begin. In her absence, Andrew
is left to plan the annual party. Instead of Halloween, he dubs

9. The first ever JABB
Halloween issue featured a parody of what Poe poem?

newsletter, the Dyelanders agree to let Andrew be alone on

movie do they then watch with him?

newsletter features a to-do list written by Andrew himself?

typos or technical errors. I'm trying to ween myself off the
obsessive triple and quadruple checking of JABB. If you notice
anything amiss, please do let me know. Thanks!
