space ships------------------- and fast food joints

This somehow makes me think of Harold Kumar hunting a intergalactic white castle.

or a cheesey hunt for the restaurant at the edge of the universe.

I'm about to finish my attempt, though not sure of submitting it. Still a very crude attempt...

There's only two of us in there right now so please do  :-\ :)

Got my story in. Never quite came together the way I hoped, but I suppose that means I picked my themes well.  ;)

Quick question, would it be alright if I uploaded my story on the 30th? I'm running a little behind at the moment.

No worries, I'll still keep the thread open until the 1st or 2nd!

Note: if any thread is still open, feel free to post there.

Thanks! Just ended up getting swamped before I could finish, so I should have an entry done at the latest by the 1st.

Also, thanks for the advice, I'll keep it in mind.

Yeah, I'm not going to make it unfortunately. I underestimated how tired I'd be yesterday, and paid the price  :-\

Ah well, there's always next month's competition!
