Ready? Set? Go!

Hey! It's not too late. In fact, you're right on time for GBA(s)FC #2 flash fiction contest over at The Moon Topples.

Yes, it's true! Once again our hero is organizing, sponsoring and facilitating his little fingers off to bring us another opportunity to write some flash fiction and toss it into the competition.

Check his site for the prompt on May 1.


Submit your story before 11pm CST on Monday, May 7th. That's 9pm in the Pacific Time Zone. Midnight in the Eastern Time Zone. I'm pretty sure. If you want to be more sure, check out the World Clock. [I mention this in such detail only because my Pacific-centric world view almost cost me my entry last time.]

There are gift certificates involved. And! If you submit, you also get to vote!

The graphic was, of course, swiped from The Moon Topples. [Who would like to make it known that his fingers are not diminutive. Sigh. Boys.]

They Call Me The Wanderer - Monday 4/30/2007

Sniffle. That's a song they would play at Bob's Big Boy. But not for me. Not this morning.

My name is Sundry, and I'm a diner-holic.

I've strayed again. Is this hitting bottom?

No, I don't think so. This is the mural on the wall at Western Bagel on Verdugo & Hollywood Way.

Hitting bottom would be going across the parking lot to Carl's Junior.

This is what I tell myself so I can live with myself.

Big Boy To Go - Sunday 4/29/2007

Not everyone gets to travel with Big Boy. But I do! And Hydra does. We're going on vacation starting Thursday.

So's Big Boy. As a luggage tag. Easier to get through inspection than the bobble-head doll they also sell behind the cash register.

I have been having some trouble with my laptop again. It's in the shop as we speak. So I haven't been as steady as I'd like in posting the photos. I expect that I won't be able to--or want to--stay away from cybercafes while we're traveling in France! You can bet I'll be taking lots of photos everyday. I have a 1 gig and a 2 gig card for my camera.

Quel Embarrassing! - Saturday 4/28/2007

Ever realize that you've come out of a public restroom with a strip of toilet paper dragging from your shoe? We were running errands in Valencia when Hydra spotted this car with a similar problem.

We particularly related because it's an Echo. Like our own beloved but discontinued car.

Life's Looking Rosy - Friday 5/27/2007

The miniature rose tree by the driveway is in full bloom. I love these roses. They are about 1 1/2 inches wide. They're perfect for the trio of small seafoam green glass medicine bottles I bought in Lone Pine a few years ago.
