Weekend Challenge!

Happy Friday, folks!

This is my first shot at hosting so be gentle.  Or not, the choice is yours.  But beware, I have a crazy cowboy and an irritated redhead at my disposal should things get out of hand.

Your theme for this weekend are quotes from one of my favorite authors – Armistead Maupin, author of the infamous Tales of the City books, among other things.  I know H is a fan, but does anyone else know his work?  I found him in the strangest of ways - via a mention in a Stephen King novel.  I’ve been in love ever since.

Choose a number between 1 and 18 and I’ll hit you with a quote.  Give me 200 or more words by Sunday night at 11:59 PST and you’ve won these fabulous prizes… or, rather, you’ll win your choice of a handful of icons, a banner, a drabble, or I can add words to a WIP.  My PS skills are not very high caliber, but I shall do my best!  My list of fandoms is small, but if I know it, I'll give it a shot.

And because I can’t resist, I leave you with this:

And this was what bothered him about owning a VCR. If that cowboy was yours for the taking—yours at the flip of a switch—what was to stop you from abandoning human contact altogether?" ― Armistead Maupin, Significant Others
