"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)

OK folks, fold yer gowns and grab yer crowns its time for this blogs Blogger Idol Week 11 Top Picks!
This week's competition was strong and the cats were out fighting with all they were worth. As the dust settles, here are the entries that impressed me:
Rasita - Why, oh why, did you enter this pageant?This one kind of left me with a feeling of wanting to read it over and over so I would make sure I got the point, and each time I was able to find a new meaning. Intentional? I dunno, but I liked it!
Kristal - let me tell you about my family!How cool is it when a description of your family is so neat that it makes me call my wife into the room and then email the page to my daughter? Cool enough to get in the top five, obviously!
silent tribute - You're joking, right?Wonderful entry, and a must read if you are a young and handsome unattached computer geek anywhere within a 20 hour drive of Quebec. And if you scroll down to the previous day's entry, you'll see her in the swimsuit comp... OW! Darling, why did you just kick me? You don't like me looking at what? Uh, forget I said that.
HR LADY - Princess Diana...Mother Theresa... In the list for the plain and simple fact that I totally completely agree with what she said, and loved the passion with which she said it.
There, that's that then for this time. (Read that three times fast without spitting!)
