it must be quite something." --NYC Taxi Driver

Merry Merry Month of May

April showers, May flowers, more poetry and prose.

The first 301 responses to the Love Blender Survey are here, although I haven't done much editing or number crunching yet. If you haven't taken the survey, I urge you to do so before reading the results.

Another excellent month for submissions to the Blender-- good to see that the move to loveblender.com didn't shake things up to much. This month's review is of the film "Two Girls and a Guy" and the ramble is slightly unusual (and arguably a little self-indulgent.)
