July's Winners and August's Contest!  
Hello, August 4th. You totally snuck up on me.

It's been a heckuva week, rife with emotional hangovers, nightmares about tank-escaping Crawdads, (Ethan: But we could get him a Crawmom! And they could have Crawkids!) hours of poolside reading and spa days. We're trying to cram all the summer we can into these last few weeks before school starts.

The winners from July's recipe contest maureen with a kickin' chili recipe, and filia_umbrae, who won even though she submitted something with a gourd as one of the ingredients. :D I'm totally making all of the submissions, even the pumpkin muffins, which were described as "scarfable." We shall see! Look for your prizes in the mail before the 15th, girls. That's my goal. ;) Congrats to you both!

August's contest!

You know I'm all about a haiku. Haikus make me irrationally happy, and I feel a little fancy reading and writing them. I'm going to confess that I also love a good Limerick, because, you know, I love to laugh. And so this month your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write as many haikus and limericks as your heart desires IN A REPLY TO THIS POST, before I drag myself out of bed on September first. The winners will receive a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble, and one of my handmade bags (new design!).

If you're unsure how to write either of these poems, just click on the links above. It's easy! And fun! And free! You can do it!

Now I'm off to register Ethan for Middle School. And get some Botox on the way because that makes me feel SO OLD.
I feel:: awakeawake
I hear:: the whirr of the fan

Cherry blossoms... bloom.
Okay, wait, that sucked a bit.
Yay for dumb haiku.

NCIS... poetry?
The first is entitled "Hope for Season 8"

New storyline please
Damn you Pedro Hernandez
Name is a clichè

That's about it for me. I hate poetry. Apparently my limerick didn't follow the rules. Even though it had the word "innuendo" with a couple rhyme-y words.

I'm sure this doesn't fit ether.

Oh what the hell...

Enough with the sexual innuendo
Just give in to the movie aficionado
Come on Ziva
Give us Tiva
The sex will be like an amazing stringendo

I tried X)

Let me know when you make the chili. You will love it. I think I need to make some, in fact. Maybe I'll make it next weekend when Cathy is in town. Hmmmmm.

rainpuddle13's cat haiku icon is still the best, js.

Scarfable doesn't even begin to describe it. Also <3.

There once was a girl down in Texas
who wanted to shrink down her excess.
She danced out her heart,
made the most of her part,
and battled the bulge with great success.

Carrie, queen of sleep,
needs to not sleep on a brick.
Bed should produce "ahhhhhhhh."

I’m writing this limerick for Carrie
Whose son my daughter will marry
I’d like one of her bags,
Barnes and Noble swag
If I don’t win, things will be hairy.

One more from me and Sharlene:

There once was a hot man named Donny
Whose face was really quite bonny.
He got drunk off his ass,
Celeste made a pass,
And it ended in hey nonny nonny.

It's late. My only excuse. :D
