  • Begin a piece of prose with one of the following sentences:

  2. “But you don’t need to worry about that now; just try and see for yourself.”
  3. “I still can’t look at a toilet without feeling the urge to stick my hand down it.”
  4. “When we look deeply into such things, the blueprint for our actions can be found within the mind.”
  5. “You were thinking something disgusting, don’t lie.”


It stopped snowing some time yesterday morning and a small patch of dirt appeared in the chicken coup… the girls were grateful. So in celebration, today we bring you the best of the coup… TToT style.

  1. Love this chicken art. I guess Daisy the agitator and “Chicken to Ride” (you know I sang that one) were my favorite. Thanks for the contest reminder, I almost forgot. Have fun at the beach.


  2. “When we look deeply into such things, the blueprint for our actions can be found within the mind…Sarah…Sarah…Sarah, where are you?” By the third repetition of my name, I snapped out of my reverie. I was not in mountains of Tibet, after all, but in my Eastern Religions class, and I was struggling to recall what my professor had just said. I could hear my neighbors tittering or moaning with annoyance that I had once again fell into a daydreaming trance. And it’s not that I wasn’t interested in the Dalai Lama and his teachings. I’d enrolled in the class, after all. It’s just that…
