As in, Oh, seeing as how I'm behind as usual, I'll get my ass in gear and try to make a deadline for a change, lol.

This is really a great idea. I should try to take part. Don' t know with finals up if I'll have time.

Pamala Knight said...

Thanks for the linky love, Moonie! I did read ello's but I was too choked up to comment. But I'll stop over at the other blogs sometime tonight to visit.

I just wanted to let you know though, that someone's trying to decifer your identity out there. I check my keywords and visitor stuff at stat counter once in a while and one of your fans landed on my blog two different times after googling "what is moonrat's real identity"...

Whoever out there in Saltlake is looking - I don't know the answer, and if I did, I wouldn't tell you.

That's scary, Merry. But mostly because I feel like my real friends don't care who I am.

Maybe it's someone well meaning, who just thinks it would be awesome to work with you and had a bit too much google time on their hands...

Wow, I was so inspired by this idea and kept telling myself to do it all weekend! I'm so sad that it didn't happen. But I'm thoroughly enjoying reading the ones that were posted earlier today.

Nonetheless, you have inspired me to finally start doing something I've been wanting to do for several months: start writing down the stories that my aunt, mom, cousins and I have been mentally collecting from my grandmother who passed away earlier this year.

(Though this isn't the original assignment, I'll share with you the url of the first one I've posted, something that I actually wrote a while back: http://blog.patrianoceu.org/2008/12/babci-interview.html)

Anyway, thanks for the great idea, and the great way it is to swap stories.
