SO - for anyone who thought it was a fun idea but just couldn't bring themselves to do the whole "linking" thing - go Here and just add a bit at a time. IF there is somebody out there who wants to continue the whole linked story - I'm totally up for it, just be sure to reference the permalink to the story post and let me know to link back to you!
For anyone who was just hoping that I would give up and get on with my regular posts before they felt obligated to participate - you're off the hook!
On another subject - Today is the birthday of my big sister who will totally LOVE the new blog so technically that can be her gift (talk about cheap!)
Later (when I'm done moping) I'll fill you all in about my night at the theatre... think "flood" people.
