Do you have those days where you are waiting on an e-mail? And everytime you see the number on the tab on your inbox increase, you get all excited? Only to find out that Pilsbury has a new recipe? Or Pepperidge Farms is now bringing their fall flavors out again? Or that Old Navy is having the same sale that you've already gotten twenty-five notifications about?

I'm waiting on an e-mail from my car dealership to tell me when my car will be ready. Not that it is ready, just a date that it will be. But no. *sigh*


1. Flash Challenge! Your flash challenge prompt is: Refresh. Give me 100 words or a graphic and it'll be a notification in my inbox that is still not the car dealership!

Big Buddy September!

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you once a week to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every Monday chime in to tell us that you are up to snuff.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!

Who's in?
