I know, and thank you for that. You and Hellcat are now da bomb in my heart.

At first I thought it was a consolation vote for the loss of my avian friend.

Until I saw your work on the MDW Plushie, and I knew that the vote was most sincere. You do really love your yarn.

If it is truly worthy, the electorate will send it to round too.

And it's not just that voting for my own piece was cheezy (which it was) I just really thought that absent-minded professor deserves to go to round two.

but again, thank you for the comment, and the vote.

I feel like the drabble noms are for the true afficionados; I know I've heard every story on the list but lord knows I can't recall their content just by title. Would some truly giving individual with a velcro covered brain provide single line descriptions? AKA: Pest Proportions by Ashley Nerbovig (the one with the tiger-sized rat), etc.
