Has a week passed already? Is it really Monday?

With all the zaniness (and Foo-Foo's evil declaration, of course), I've barely had time to think or breathe. Thank goodness I had a FABU (pronounced "fab-'ooo" for the uninitiated) brunch with two of my bestest-in-the-westest buddies yesterday. It was fast, but fun. And then it was back to the grind.

In any case, I wanted to give a shout out to Jason over at Clarity of Night. He had to judge 73 (!) awesome entries for his latest contest, and yours truly (#73, by the way -- got it in with a minute left on the deadline) even snagged an honorable mention. Stop by and read 'em all. Trust me, though -- mine is incredibly blah by comparison. (I really love Sarah Hina's. So touching and gorgeous. She's a terrific writer.)

I hope to post more often this week, but you never know! Regardless, Foo-Foo has not yet unleashed his bunny weapons, but I'm half expecting a stealth attack any minute.

(Wait... are those footsteps I hear behind me... carrots I smell?... uh, oh...)

Thank you so much for the mention! I am truly touched, and astonished, to win the Reader's Choice. This has really made my morning.

I really loved your piece, and felt a deep affinity for the mother character. I wanted to climb right up there beside her. ;) Congratulations on the honorable mention! You are a lovely, lovely writer.

Thanks again for this! And I will be back. :)

I really loved Sarah's entry as well and thought it should have taken both firsts. I really liked yours and mine didn't completely suck, but Sarah's was over the top perfect. You deserved at LEAST the HM! So, congratulations!

OK, just watched the Bunny video and omg, HILARIOUS! Then your little one peeks out from his area of play. Even my daughter, newly 15, chuckled at it!

As you surely know, I loved your piece, Angelique!
Again, it was a contest full of deep and interesting material!

Foo Foo wrote that entry. You should be ashamed of yourself.
