blah

I have fallen into a tornado of due dates (mixed metaphor? I can't even tell anymore). If I'm around here a little less, please forgive.

It's okay. I'm up to my ears in madness too. Two critiques, editing my own work, writing a script, moderating writer fora. Oh, and it would be nice to put in the 8 hours at the office required to keep my job.

Best wishes on getting your piles of paperwork in order...I'll be watching for you when the storm passes. (Yep, I know that wasn't very poetic...)

Don't forget to take small breaks in between. Stress is a killer. :-)

Good luck, Moonie! Maybe you can treat yourself to some sushi when the worst is over. : )

I suggest chocolate milkshakes.

Hang in there.

Ooo. I love the milkshake suggestion.

Switch with me? I'm getting a root canal today.

That's ok, we all have our cyclones to deal with. We'll be here.

Take a deep breath... good luck on all your due dates!

I totally forgot to give you my chocolate milkshake recipe!

You need a sturdy glass. Tall. Not too narrow. I like to use a 16 oz mason jar because we have such things in the south.

Fill it almost to the top with your favorite chocolate ice cream. Or whatever is on sale.

This is the time to add chocolate syrup, leftover coffee, kahlĂșa, what have you.

Fill in the empty spaces with milk, and use an iced tea (long-handled) spoon to push down on it and smush it all together until you are able to stir it a bit.

If you want it thinner, do less ice cream and more milk. I recommend drinking while mostly horizontal on a couch.

On a completely unrelated topic, I just read an article that says Mattel has changed the rules of scrabble - for the first time ever! - to include proper nouns (article here). I don't think I like this...

A didactic duplicity of due dates. Better?
