Hi there! Recovered from NaNo yet, NaNo'ers? Anyone looking for a little inspiration for some weekend words?

If so, gimme two numbers, one of them from 1-10 and the other from 100.  So, tell me "I'll take 4/23" or "15/87".

I'll use the numbers to pull you a song lyric, a relationshippy quote, and a random image from a free stock image site.

Rewards for works of art or fics posted by midnight Sunday - let me know if I can make you an image, write a ficlet, or put words on a WIP!
Okay, bring on the numbers!

On top of knitting, shopping, wording and graphic-ing, cookie-ing starts this week, I don't even know if I have a comprehensive list yet, and I'm scheduled to be shopping for ingredients tonight. ACK! AND THEN we have the upcoming WIPmass to plan as well as the 100-in-100 (which involved time zones and I suck at time zones!)!

AND there are a couple of things going on RIGHT NOW!
FIRST the DCC (and don't think I'm not counting this towards my words today): Sat 10th - erinm_4600, Sun 11th - simplyn2deep, Mon 12th - weakmoments, Tues 13th - flipflop_diva, Wed 14th - thtwzjustadream, Thurs 15th – slashluv18, Fri 16th - kaige68 Again, really? Who set this up?
SECOND is the Swap of Joy: Posters are - 10th kitmerlot1213, 11th haldoor, 12th hanorganaas, 13th simplyn2deep, 14th flipflop_diva, 15th sharpiesgal, 16th guineamania.

EVEN IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO READ/SAVE GRAPHICS (like me, sorry hon), tell your gifter that you love their effort!

AND there have been a number of other challenges this week alone!

I really do use caps locks a lot, as well as the words 'and' and 'so'. Don't I?

SO - ;) haldoor, we need to chat about a planning post. When we both have time. HA! I kill me!

Upcoming is WIPness, and 100-in100, as well as a bunch of other normally scheduled challenges and weekend challenges and perhaps, if I get my act together, a flash challenge or two. BRACE YOURSELVES! AND GIVE ME THAT ONE MORE WORD!!!

Go back and fill all the ABC's or 123's or ANYTHING!
