I subbed both in quick order and waited for the auto reply. One said early and the other said open, so I resubmitted the first. (hoping you didn't get it twice). And now you have your work cut out for you, Sharon.

And the rest of us wait. Good luck, everyone. See you on Twitter.

There once was a lady named Chriscoe
Who kept us poor writers on tippy toe
While her tips and her tease
Brings us all to our knees
Come Monday we won't fit in our pants--oh woe.

From all the ICE CREAM we been eating. The PBParty stress diet!
