  < july 2002 >
Summer's in full swing! Hope you're having a good one, with plenty of sweat and sun and sunblock and maybe a bad paperback novel or two.

Over 700 works sent in last month, which I think might be a record for the Blender! I had plenty to choose from, but all the ones here on the frontpage really stood out.

This month's "Ramble" is something Mo and I wanted to get in writing before the memories had a chance to fade, in honor of our one year anniversary, it's the story of all the disasters that made our wedding great.

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

abridged - the guppy
Brilliant, I wish we all could write letters and notes like this. Click on the guppy's account to see more correspondence.

Cowsome Loneboy - therosser1022
Terrific title, and one of the best rhyming/rhythmic poems I've seen in a while.

Lay Me Down - Stacey
Submitted by Corinna. I'm always a sucker for a good closing line.

You - Belle de Jour
Melancholy history.

Wishes - Liz
If wishes were horses...well, I think we'd all be in deep doo-doo.

Nothing's Simple - Ali
Nothing's simple, true. But you know, sometimes it feels as if othingness isn't that simple either.

It's Illegal to Be This Happy - Chrissy
Tiny slice of life that seemed a bit familiar, though some years back...online communication can make jealous paranoids of us all.

I dont know... - Jon
Jon's one of the more prolific writers on the Blender. This is probably another "digital nostalgia" pick for me, what can happen when you stumble on some old computer files.

Coming? - deevaa
I always like deevaa's work when it becomes a little more realistic.

Morning After - Bridget O
A few extremely well chosen words.

??? - Akash
Not quite a haiku, but it doesn't need to be.

Tables and Love - splatipus
Romance as Carpentry.

Primer - Misti
Misti had a rough month last month, but this is by no means a "sympathy" pick...this is a alternative-pop-culture whirlwind.

Protection - Misti
Last month, people were trying their hand at stories exactly 55 words in length...this one is my favorite of all of them, the 55 limit produced some interesting results.

What Went Wrong (and what went right)
A tale of a wedding gone awry...not horribly awry, but awry nonetheless.

Heart on Sleeve Corner
705 more heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
