Ask the Geeks -
Silver Dee asks:
This one is from Mario to Pink (as he was sitting on my lap as you showed Pink off and started chatting). "Meow, meow. Meew Meow??? MEEEEOOOWWWW Meow?"

How excited are you for Vlogmas this year? Do you have any special plans for it that you can share ahead of time? Or are you just planning on winging the daily vlogs? I know that my Vlogtober vlogs are based on what I'm working on, but I was thinking I might have a central theme for mine this year, but I'm not sure. I'm just looking for a bit of advise since you've done Vlogmas before.
