#178 - Poetry

I have just come back from attending a poetry reading in Bath. Sharon Olds held the room spellbound as she read her poetry and talked about writing. (I highly recommend a poetry reading if you've never been. It makes poetry into something completely different!) For some, the word poetry conjures up terror; other people's mouths begin to water in anticipation. Very few people feel nothing about it. Either way, your assignment this week is to write some - whether you like it or not!

#177 - Adult

What are your thoughts on adulthood? What do you want to be when you grow up? Are you scared of being an adult? Have you been forced to be the adult in a relationship? Do you have an adult child who won't grow up? Are you glad to finally be an adult? What do you think?

#176 - Fantasy Dinner Party & Baby News

I wanted to do something a little different this week, so you are getting more structure than normal. Do you ever play the game where you decide who you would invite to your fantasy dinner party?

The rules are:
- you can invite anyone, living or dead
- you have a table that seats eight, but as you are one, you can invite seven people
- you have to explain why you'd invite them

And for bonus points:
- what would you serve them for dinner?


P.S. BIG FAT HUGE CONGRATULATIONS and Welcome to the World to Clementine Pie di Bartolo! Laini and Jim welcomed her on August 9, 2009. Congratulations Laini & Jim!!!

P.P.S. As spammers seem to have found our site, I am going to take the comments section down temporarily. If you want to leave a comment for Laini & Jim, please pop over to her site. I think we need to let the spammers rest for a week or two!

#175 - New

In honour of Laini, the prompt this week is: new. What's new in your life? What new things should you be embracing? What does new mean to you? (Head over to her blog if you don't already know why I chose this!)
