Hey, Elle,

Don't let anyone or anything get you harried. I've always said, you rock, you shine, and your good will is an inspiration to all of us. And I never let anyone or anything change my mind. So there.

I know everyone is waiting patiently for signatures, MBs and awardicons. I'm just busy offline! I haven't forgotten you all! Will start getting them out as soon as I can, but it's chaos leading up to our big trip in three weeks.

But squee, only three weeks to go! *Cool**Countryuk**Sun*
I'm sure Azrael Tseng is patient enough to wait a few more days for his thousand well-deserved accolades. *Wink*

I know the Quills are done and dusted (you're still busy nominating items though, right?) but there's heaps to do on the site at the moment. Check these out before they close! For every contest listed here that you enter, you'll go in the draw for an Elle merit badge. I'll definitely give out more than one, but you'll have to get entering and inspire me to give out as many as possible!

You've got the rest of the week, but beware, some of these contests will close before then!

To prove you've entered, post a link below to your post in the contest forum. I'll have to take your word for the Short Shots one, but I have friends in high places, no? *Smirk*

Come on, there's something for everyone here! Short stories, poetry, flash fiction...

Why is it that I am always so full of ideas when I'm at work, and yet when I sit down in front of my computer... nothing? *Headbang*
I completely understand! It happens to us all, I think. However, I've begun to grab a sticky note to jot down my ideas, the website I want to visit, or the book I want to read and throw it in my purse. It may be a while before I clean out my purse or remember I threw it in there, but eventually, I come back to it.

I already posted under R E Baker- Hunter Games Shrek's announcement, but I wanted to be sure that everyone who doesn't care knows. *Laugh* Sadly, I can't make it today. But happily, it's because I'm meeting with a long lost cousin who was given up for adoption 56 years ago. Smile I'll be sad to miss the ceremony, but it's okay. It's for an awesome reason! Wink
