of course, of course.

to be honest, i mostly do it just for selfish reasons.  i like to read them on my kindle, or listen to a tts (amy is the name of the one who reads it to me) while i'm driving or running.

i think i like this new way of posting.  it doesn't make anything hard to read, does it?

suh-weet.


p.s.  btw, i took 15 minutes and scripted this.  there's no way i'd spend that time doing something i couldn't easily repeat.

Don't, Mr. J, people still have to vote.

Please stop playing around with fonts people? Pretty please?

She meant voting on what font style was the coolest  ::)

It's probably gonna be the next contest as well: "Submit a story with a different font style/size. Most creative wins."

Voted. Not necessarily for the people I'd expected to vote for on the first reads either.

Thank you to everyone who gave me shizzle to read.

I don't like this theme very much, so let's see what I find...

I've only got 2 stories (random) left to read.

Only 5 days left to vote, and this time we don't have that many :-\
