The exercise:

Two more things today. Numero uno: tomorrow shall be the 300th day in a row of Daily Writing Practice. I consider that quite the accomplishment. I'd like to say I have something super awesome planned for it... but I don't.

Numero dos: so apparently there's some difficulty with European donations for the fund raising walk. I'm going to get in touch with the organizers and see if there is anything that can be done about that, but until then - thank you so much for the desire to contribute. I hope something can be worked out.

Okay then. Def Poetry Jam Friday wants you to admire Flaco Navaja's Dimple.

Mine:

I think this might be my new definition of romantic machismo. Because I totally had an old one.

Anyway. This is a real, honest, sweet performance that reminds us that love can come in so many more forms than we'll ever see on TV or the big screen.

That ending makes me smile every time too.

Here's some more Flaco for you.

Congratulations on nearly-300-days! I'd noticed the numbers ticking up :) I am expecting something totally awesome from you to celebrate the 300th post (not as awesome as bacon, which is sat in my kitchen right now waiting for me to cook and eat it, but something close).

Dimple

One for cute,
Two for "oh boy!"
Three for a bowling ball...
Four for... joy?

Dimples aren't magpies
And if I'm having to count them
You need plastic surgery
Or a face-pack and then some.

Hey Marc,

congratulations on your commitment! Hope you do something to comemorate.

Greg - haha, I totally should have used 'bacon' as the starter. Another day.

Your poem made me laugh out loud, first thing in the morning. That, good sir, is an accomplishment.

Kim - thanks very much. I think I'll save the big celebration for the one year mark. Though I have no idea what I'll do for it...
