  6. rachael looks like i returned just in time. i was afraid i would get lost, or at least maimed, trying to jump into the blogbattle fray blind. but as you’re testing out a new system i’m guessing i won’t be the only one feeling my way around for a little while. i’ll be back to check all the new rules and stories later. cheers! – and thanks for checking in on me while i was gone.

    1. I missed you! πŸ™‚ I got real worried there for a while, but I’m so glad you’re back and ready to jump back in the battles! We want you on our side. πŸ™‚ I love the new blog and branding doodads, too!

      1. I MISSED YOU TOO – can’t believe i didn’t say that the first time around. i’m flabbergasted (but hey i got to use “flabbergasted” in a sentence and that’s quite frankly worth the faux pas)! thanks i’m proud of the doodads too so much so i think they deserve a post, but they’ll wait till the battles die down. anyway i’m here to eye up my opponents so there’s no more time to dawdle πŸ˜‰

        1. Haha who wouldn’t want to find every opportunity to use flabbergasted in a sentence? πŸ™‚ Make sure you skip over mine while eyeing the competition. I’ve been a little rushed with writing them. πŸ˜‰

            12. What about a duplicitous surfer who is indiscriminate about where he floats. He could lose his voice from screaming so much ’cause well not cool stuff is happening, and when he gets back to his jeep there’s a ticket on the windshield to finish off the wrist day if his life. LOL

            14. So, 800 words in and I’m just missing surfer now…and it’s a piece that’s scaring me on two fronts…one is it may be crap and two the content I find very very worrying from an apocalyptic sense 😱

              Liked by 1 person

            15. πŸ˜€ I can’t wait to read it! Seriously, if you were able to get all those words in there and make a story of apocalyptic proportions, we’ve got ourselves something fun to read. πŸ˜€

            16. Not sure it’s fun per se…I’ve got a huge prompt idea credit list to make too. It’s familiar theme but with my take on it. I’ll no doubt read it back and go WTF is this 😱

            17. haha Sometimes those are the funnest ones to go back and read. No matter what, I’m going to enjoy it because I know all the thought and work you’re putting into it, which will make it totally worth my time!

            20. You just want a second post for surfer 😁 Mind you I need to write…been too long editing and this is the first new thing since then πŸ€”

            21. Maybe. πŸ™‚ But seriously, it’s good to switch back and forth between the editing and the writing sometimes.

            22. I could do a sequel….I now have the very chap in mind to continue it πŸ€”

              But you are dead right….switching is the way forwards. I got so entrenched I editing I lost time….this piece I’m doing as a result of your word list is the first new thing I’ve written in months. I’m quite worried ve lost my mojo 😱

            25. Yes, so true. Can we burn it in the fireplace instead? The attic is too creepy for me to go in. πŸ˜‰
