There will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, August 15 with a theme of "anything goes." Check your notes for whatever you wanted to prompt that hasn't matched a theme. Check your worthy causes and special interests for stuff I haven't covered yet that you would like to request. If you don't have ideas waiting, you can review your favorites and just name a character, setting, or storyline that you'd like to see more of -- I can supply more details from elsewhere. And I hope to see you tomorrow!
Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies. Valor's Widow finds out what Stylet has in his backpack. "The Order of Their Stars" is now complete. Astin and V visit a sex shop. "The Higher a Monkey Climbs" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Pips gets worried about Jules and drops by for a visit. "Two Foxes" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie hears that the Iron Horses are going after the gaybashers, and feels uneasy over his own reactions.
Weather has been variously cool or mild. We've gotten a lot of yardwork done! Currently blooming: dandelions, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias, firecracker plant, white and red clover, morning glories, spiderwort, echinacea, blackberry lilies, Queen Anne's lace, frost asters, cup plant, black-eyed Susan, torenia, purple aster, rose campion, some yellow thing in the wildflower garden, butterfly milkweed, thistle. Yellow coneflowers and naked ladies are almost done.
