      This morning I was so confused in the bleary-eyed caffeine deprived predawn hours. Took a minute to register that the comments were in French. I was very relieved once I realized what was happening.

      I’m enjoying it. Reminds me of a vacation oh so long ago. Paris, wine, chocolate, and cheese…

      I am enjoying it too. With subtitles and automatic translations on most web sites these days we don’t get to experience other languages all too often. Its great fun. Finally those years taking French in high school are paying off!

      Maybe not carpal tunnel but I have definitely reached the level of being able to vote in my sleep. Which I am sure I did several times last night. X.x

      No, but I am alternating ice and heat on my tapping thumb in between every vote as a precautionary measure.

      I’ve lost a couple of pounds and through sleep deprivation apparently the ability to complete an entire thoug Wait… what were we talking about??

      Do you think a manager should accept “injured myself voting in a deathmatch” as an excusable absence from work? Asking for a friend…

    As someone who as always enjoyed your stories and poems, I look forward to all your future writing endeavors. You have definitely found your niche. Congrats!

      Any time you can witness someone evolve and develop his or her own special talents is always a wonderful if not enlightening experience.

    Christina – obviously a lot of critiques on all the various stories these past couple of weeks. Any changes you would now make to yours if you could do a rewrite?

    1. Christina Brown ( Likes: 899 ) says:

      Great question! I’ve definitely gotten some really helpful feedback on my story. I think in future drafts I’ll work on delving deeper into the relationships between the characters. I’ll also play with rounding out the narrator and keeping her minimal and find a balance that I like 🙂

      What is happening exactly (or not happening) ? Is the «vote» sign on the cleaver write or grey ? For me, it’s harder to click on the mobile. Try with your computer maybe?

      A couple of times I had the same thing happen. I had to completely shut down my computer for a few seconds and then restart it. I was able to vote afterwards. Other than that, all I can say is to check your Internet speed connection to make sure it’s running properly.

      I was having trouble too and resetting my browser did the trick. I hope it works for you too.

      You’re pulling out Uggs?! That’s pretty serious. I’m getting the chains ready for the car!

      I enjoyed voting while watching olympics all day yesterday. Now i am back to work trying to vote during breaks. I hope nobody thinks I’ll of me for taking so many trips to the bathroom.

      Yes it seems like it is happening for real now, even though the previous matches were deadly as well :~)

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I was fried last night. It was intense! So happy for Christina and Sophie. Both deserving winners and writers.

    1. Carolyn35 ( Likes: 220 ) says:

      I agree. Everyone gave it their all and it made it quite exciting. Two great stories left.

    Bye Sean and Ryan! Thanks for death matching with us. Can’t wait to see all our stories published together in the next issue of BP!

    And congrats Sophie! I’m excited for this week 😀
