Forget her, Stanley... That girl will tear your
heart out, put it in a blender and hit "frappé"

Happy Spring!

It's Spring Time and the Blender Digest is sporting its Easter pastels- oh wait, this is how the site always looks. Never mind.

Still, it's good to see you here, and I hope you'll enjoy this month's selection of new prose and poetry, as well as the usual editor "Rambles Regarding Romance" and a review of Garrison Keillor's Mr. Blue column in Salon.

So have a happy Easter, Passover, Pagan Spring Ritual, or my personal favorite, return of Daylight Savings Time!

Read, Love, Enjoy.

Kirk, Blender-Keeper
