Reminds self to make a list next time :D

Or, perhaps, even to wipe out my flash-fiction cobwebs and have a go at entering.

Go on, Dusty. Sexy Space Pilots theme please. :D

(Congrats!)
Ok, kidding about bribes and cheeses aside, you really should enter. I, for one, would enjoy seeing your entry.

Is it bad that I already have an idea if we go with sexy space pilots?

Holy... :eek:

This month seriously had so much depth of talent, as evidenced by the nearly unprecedented spread of votes (I say "nearly" because I'm pretty sure we had a month or two that did that in the past), it's a real honor to squeak by at the wire. I'm proud of everyone, so well done, you! (y)

Thank you so much, guys -- now please start slipping me ideas for next month, preferably wrapped in chocolate. (Oh, lord, did I just tell Jo to wrap a sexy space pilot in chocolate?) o_O

Pretty sure there is an image of that somewhere on the internet, but I am NOT prepared to explain to my wife why I Googled "sexy space pilot in chocolate", so someone else will have to find it...

Thank you, Cat's. You made my stormy night shine bright.


My Story: A late library book (I hoped no one chose that idea), borrowed by myself along with my talking horse buddy Tonto, included a fierce sorceress who worked for the library as an enforcer to recover overdue books, is what I came up with.

The book, CALAMISTRATUS LARIDUM, is Latin for CRISPY BACON.
