    First post is up! It's non-fiction, a first for me, and a bit whiny besides. But it was quite cathartic nonetheless.

    areteus' two-day window begins tomorrow at sunrise CST (but early posting is permitted and may even be rewarded with real or imagined cookies).

    LOL, I didn't think it was whiny. I enjoyed it.

    Whooops I did it again. I commented on your post while logged into my other blog. So sorry if there is any confusion.

    Nah, I pretty much assume all comments are from one of the gang here. I don't know about the rest of you, but AW and the blog chain accounts for something like 95% of my comments and 75% of my hits!

    That's good, because areteus has slid ignominiously to the bottom of the chain with nary a peep. Begin the healing process, MamaStrong.

    Very well, I've bumped you eager beavers to the top of the queue. You'll get all the glory, but be warned: run out the clock and there will be twice the ignominy

    It was a Dark and Snowy Week

    here is my true story of my Winter Nightmare. It was really hard to write this, but I'm glad I did. I'll be adding the other blog links soon, I just have to type them up single handily, and it takes time.

    sadly no. Every time I try to do that it makes the blog look weird. No worries. I'll work on it after my demon...err...I mean daughter goes to bed tonight.

    Thanks for bumping me

    The longer i had to wait for more chance of me editing, changing, and ultimately driving me insane would happen

    Here's my Post

    I hope you enjoy my dark musings (my writing isn't usually that dark by the way)

    For some reason, I can't read it.

    You can bump me up...I'm gone this weekend until Monday evening, and I can't guarentee I'll be online all that much. So if you can get me in, or give me the go ahead, I'm ready.

    I am all ready to go with mine as well, but I can go any time, so if Alpha Echo wants to go ahead of me that's ok.
