    If it's not too late, I'll throw my hat in the ring. My computer, sadly, succumbed to a nasty virus. At first I was sympathetic, but as it's illness worn on, so my patience wore out. In the end, I subjected it to the most comprehensive test known to computer-kind, the bounce test. It failed.
    Hello Apple.
    So, my computer access is limited and the piece will have to be an older piece I read at the Celebration of The Arts Festivale about a year or two ago. I shall blow the dust off it and spruce it up.

    Okay, I really really hate to do this, but I've had a bunch of things come up, so I'm going to have to check out of this Blog Chain. So sorry for the inconvenience

    Well, at least you told us up front instead of going all AWOL like the others

    Proach has been removed from the chain by request. Suzanne Seese is next.

    Here's my nightmare.
    "I didnít see it the first time, probably because on my first look there wasnít enough air circulating to cause movement. And in the dead of winter, smell doesnít play much of a role."

    Can I join in on this? The blog chain seems pretty long already; does it die at the end of Jan?

    You know, it's never come up. But since the next month's chain doesn't start until a week or so has passed a little overlap won't kill anybody. Still, the more the merrier.

    Incidentally, let's get some ideas for February's chain flowing. The chain covered the whole "lovey dovey Valentiney" thing in 2010, so I'd prefer something a little more outside the box. We'll go for the mushy stuff if we have to, but expect a very bitter post from me if that comes to pass

    Pretend you (or your character) are single, and a mysterious stranger strangers leaves a card on your doorstep. Inside is a $100 bill and a message telling you to take the day to pamper yourself. Would you track the stranger down and press charges for being a stalker? Donate the money to a homeless shelter? Buy ten pounds of chocolate, melt it in the tub, and have the most delicious bath ever? The possibilities are endless!

    It is now!

    Literateparakeet gets to chew on the cuttlebone of blog posting next.

    Keep those February suggestions coming, too.

    Whew, I have had this written and waiting for awhile, but with a big winter storm here and power outages, I could have missed my turn!

    Power's back, so nibble away HERE.

    Hey for February since we are looking to avoid the Valentine bit, how about since it is the second month of the year, we do something like "Second Chances"?

    Hm, I like that one. It allows people to be mushy if they want but doesn't require it

    i like the second chance theme too

    The only one i can think of is failed resolutions. People usually get to February and have that cigarette, miss that gym session, or forget about their diet
