Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

It's Monday,

And you know what that means?

Me either. *sigh*

It wasn't a productive weekend at all for me. But I'm sunburned, the dog was washed, and much time was spent on both days at the dog park (which is why I'm sunburned). However, there were no words. I did watch six hours of The Pacific which doesn't inspire creativity for me, but makes me sort of flounder around.

So this means big plans to get back on track this week. Sure there's more dog park, but there will also be some time set aside for words! I NEED WORDS!

Tell me what you're big plans are for the week! Are you where you want to be? Are you desperate to catch up by the second Monday of the month like me? Are you very busy celebrating the MMoM?

Have I mentioned how awesome you all are? WELL YOU ARE?

Leaving the Galaxy Far, Far Away for now...

And what a great week we had! I hope you managed to join us! Thank you to my co-hosts on the Star Wars squee, the lovely erinm_4600 and imera! You were both wonderful; thank you so much!

Now it's time to wrap it up with a few Keep Calm posters that amused me, and a round-up of the posts we went through, and of the challenge contributions!

So, now we've come to the end of another fandom squee. I hope you all enjoyed it, and if you haven't had time to look at everything, go back at your leisure! I hope it continues to inspire fic, and as is fitting...


Keep calm and return to your own galaxy now!
