Mmmm, presents-- one of the few things that makes this cold
dark season worth while. That, and the chance to publish
a few more Blender Digests. Oh, and the McDonald's Eggnog
Milkshakes (in limited quantity-- see last year's digest comments to
see what I'm talking about.)
Not only are the days getting shorter, but so is the
average poem length on Heart on Sleeve corner, thanks to exploration of
haiku poetic form.
What else is there to say? Enjoy the holidays, make some memories
with some loved ones, and don't forget to stop back at the Blender
of Love as get ready to party like its 1999!

Isolde's short verse have inspired a lot of

The mysterious "X" is another trendsetter,
showing how to celebrate sensuality
