Where'd The Week Go?

First off, Happy Friday! I don't know about you but its been a rough week.

I've got some writing to do this weekend! There are a lot of things that I haven't been able to get to this week for one reason or another. I received a lot of interesting comments and email about the 'hearts and minds' post and I thank you for that. You all raised some good points and I'd like to explore the topic a bit more. I appreciate that you guys hang with me for the serious stuff as well as the silly.

I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention how much you guys blew me away yesterday with Thursday's Haiku Smackdown! 661 entries by the time I shut it down last night! Amazing! It was also great to see some new faces.

For your entertainment pleasure on this fine Friday, I give you one of my favorite sites - art by Mr. Brandon Bird. And if you're a Law and Order fan, please don't miss this.

Rough week? You can say that again. But the weekend is shaping up pretty well. Hope you have a great one! :-)

What is it about Fridays that make all the optimists seem less like crackheads?

I agree, haiku was great this week: must have been near 800 'kus, since many posts contained more than one. I must ask though, did you get 661 seperate e-mails for each 'ku?

Neat artwork. But "Tartarus" scared the shit out of me.
