    I have to admit, Griff, that that's one of the best misdirection tricks I've seen on this challenge for a long time.

    You've already entered, haven't you? :)

    I'd like to tell you, but then I'd have to...well you know.

    I just found the other post for this, the one that clearly lays out the deadlines, sorry for asking to repeat info! Still getting used to the forum organization and what not.

    I think you're forgiven. The place takes some getting used to.

    I've got a fresh crop haunting my inbox. Trying to decide if there'll be time to hop down to the cafe tomorrow after my shift or wait for a more auspicious opening mid-week when I'm supposedly going to have a day or two off...

    I'd go tonight but I'm feeling a vampiric drain of ambition and virv, and am hoping to bribe someone else into dinner.

    I haven't. New crop going up later today. :)

    After recovering from the decadence lavished on me for breakfast this morning.


    Probably on my way to pick up lunch decadence.

    Whew. Long day.

    Picked up some flower tea on my way home from the cafe, worked a short shift. Collected ingredients for a splendid dinner. Now I just have to remember where I dropped my ambition and energy off at so I can do the laundry and catch a snooze before my next short shift.

    *checks watch* less than 10 days remaining. You! In the corner! Where's your entry?

    *mumbled reply*

    Uh-huh. Well I better. If you get guessed without having submitted that means you were expected to enter. So let's not have any hurt feelings.

    Mm. Nice full inbox.

    What's that?

    Yes there's room for yours.
    No. No one's thought of that yet.

    Yes it's very good, now finish it up and get it in before Sunday.

    I said Sunday right?

    Saturday!?

    Oh you better get crackin then. Shoo shoo. Off with you. Write something that makes me look brilliant when I post it for you.
