Well, a while back I entered Taylor Lynn's Poetry Contest and....won it! :) You can read the announcement post here. :)
As part of the prize I got to do a guest post on her blog, and since I had never had that honor before, I had a bit of a time trying to decide what to write about. In the end, I went with this. What do you think of it? I had to agree with Rabbit from Winnie-the-Pooh, myself.
"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit. "No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."

Everyone else seemed to like it, though! :) And it was fun to be featured on someone else's blog! :) Maybe I'll use that idea for my next contest....(which is in the works!)
Also, I joined up with Poetrysoup.com after I saw that my new Kiwi correspondant, Felicity, was on there. :) *smile* It's a free poetry community where you can post your poetry, as well as read the work of other poets and get feedback. I thought I'd try it out and see what's what. So far I like it pretty well.
I still have not gotten around to writing that brilliant post. It is not good form to make a bunch of excuses for your negligance. However, I must excuse myself this once because we are so terribly busy with our market-gardening business (two markets and one produce co-op a week, plus other garden work) and I had that glorious Civil War ball to go to, and then....well...I must confess. I received my Pride and Prejudice movie in the mail and I have been much occupied in my odd moments with day-dreaming I am Lizzie Bennett and wondering if I'll marry someone like Mr. Darcy... Just kidding. :) But we have been watching it during rest time, and finally finished it last night.
Oh yes! And how could I forget! I have been writing my graduation speech! It is not the speech that makes me nervous, but the thought of the 200 pairs of eyes fixed upon my face while I read it. I think I'll faint. Most probably. But perhaps it'd be best *not* to think about it and pretend I am someone else entirely while I go through it. :[ *Grim smile*
Well, duty calls and I must hie away to fulfill it! I shall quote Pride and Prejudice to satisfy you as I go! ;)
