"Sugar, your thighs are hives of honey,
and I am the Bumble Bee of love."
--Mary A. Koncel
Blender of Love Digest December 1998

Happy Holidays

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!

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper
