Passing on the Daily Challenge

Sigh.... I'm really sorry I forgot to pass this on. My day was the 10th - and though I mostly edited a piece, I also accomplished about 200 new words in the process. On Sunday, I also had a bunch more words - 700+ - thanks to the word wars! Yay for that.

Sorry, flipflop_diva that I failed to pass it on. And bizarra, Wednesday is your day - good luck!
