This week was frightfully good.
It was creepy and kooky. It was mysterious and spooky. Frankly, it was altogether ooky. The Nerd Mafia Family. (snap, snap)
Ahem. Apologies for that. Sometimes we get a bit too engrossed in the spirit of the holidays.
We had trouble deciding which ghoulishly clever post to make this week. (Are ghouls clever? Let’s just assume so for sake of the theme. And because we’re The Dons.)
Jennifer Juniper wowed us with the best post title we’ve ever seen. And who doesn’t fear a pantsless dementor?
But it was Sonora from Twinfinity who truly made us scream. Her tale of CPB was one so familiar that we couldn’t help but shudder and welcome her into our fold.
Congratulations, Sonora. In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man.
Please contact one of the Dons for your button code.
Good luck to all! And maybe next week, you’ll be “made”, too!
This week, in honor of our 21st Word Up, Yo!, we’re taking a gamble with two ways to get made.
The first, a recruitment challenge. No Mafia can thrive without fresh blood. So, if you recruit one person to join Word Up, Yo! you get a promotion. If you recruit two or more people to participate, you are instantly Made. (Those who are already Made will get a generous bump to Capo.)
To have a post count in the recruitment challenge it must:
1. Use one of this week’s words.
2. Link up to Word Up, Yo!
3. Mention the name and/or blog of the person who recruited them.
The second way to get made: use any of the Vegas themed words below. As always, the best post gets jumped in to our cozy little Mafia Family.

Good luck everyone! Hopeful this week will contain lots of big winners!
