I hope true love is not like waiting for the bus: Waiting and watching
and hoping it hasn't already come and gone... --erin
Blender of Love Digest December 2001

End of the Year

2002 is almost upon us...the first Palindrome year since 1991, and the last until 2112. There might be some cosmic significance to that but it currently escapes me.

It was 70 degrees in Boston. Yeah, we may have broken the planet, but I guess that grey cloud may have a silver lining here and there.

Some good works are featured this month, and a guest review by deevaa. I hope you enjoy it all.

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper
