I have LOVED reading everyone’s posts on Dewey, and you still have two hours to participate. She was such a special person, and even though she can’t participate, I love that her spirit is with us through everyone’s posts.

This hour’s mini-challenge is to write a limerick about the read-a-thon, and one just magically came to me. You have to say ‘weather’ and ‘after’ with a bit of an accent, but I think it’s worth it. ;)

There was once a girl named Eva
who got caught in really bad weath-a
but she grabbed her mom
for the read-a-thon
and lived happily ever aft-a

I focused much more on reading than cheerleading this past hour (though I did visit all of the participants in my mini-challenge), because it’s crunch time if I’m going to break 2K! (I was right on track, but then I kept dozing off for a couple of hours…) We’re in the home-stretch though, so everyone should be incredibly proud of themselves!!! My mom is still up, although it was looking touch and go for a bit. ;)

Off to read more.

Oh, and I am very much enjoying The Likeness. Although it’s not really scary…more intriguing.

    Oh, blah! What an awful limerick! It’s wonderfully awful–so bad that it’s good!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
