The End Is Nigh.
Nicky and Mike over at We Work For Cheese have been running this a writing challenge throughout February. And today is the final day! Better yet, nobody has murdered either of them; I feel happy and sad all at the same time.
And, kidding aside, thanks to Nicky and Mike for running this circus. I know how much work is involved, and much as I’ve grumbled, I’ve had an amazing month.
Okay, school’s out now! You can all go home and chill. If you’ve just been reading, thanks for keeping us company. If you’ve been writing, you deserve a medal.
But I hope to see you all here again very soon.

wheee - you did it! congrats. ditto on having such friends. I'm a great fan of friends like that. Welcome to March. xxoxox
Thanks Yamini! It's been something of a pleasure taking part ;) But a lovely treat to meet you. I look forward to the future, see you there =) Indigo xDelete
That was a fun February wasn't it, Indigo? I enjoyed stopping by here and exchanging insightful(?) comments on each other's blog. Can't you just wait for the next one? yeah, me neither.ReplyDelete
Hey Dufus! I hear ya, buddy. If Nicky suggests another one, I may have to beat CheesyMike to death with a tyre iron; well, she's too pretty, and has such nice shoes. I salute you Sir, and you're on my blogroll now, goddammit. IndigoDelete
A fine piece to end the challenge with, Indigo. I'm glad I got a chance to find your blog through this challenge and I look forward to continuing to follow it.ReplyDelete
Hey P.J.! The pleasure was mine! See you soon! IndigoDelete
Aww, thank you so much for your vote! Although I hate to break it to you, but this wasn't really a competition. ;)ReplyDelete
Bear is a very wise.. well, bear. You're a rich man, indigo, and I'm not talking about your possessions, or the money in your bank. :)
Hey Ziva! I beg to differ, and kneel to the Empress of Entries. We love ya, Z! And thanks, I think he's a smart cookie. Ooooh, cookies! Thanks for your relentless support during this challenge =) Indigo xDelete
It's been fun reading along! Your stories are always entertaining!ReplyDelete
Hey Amy! A pleasure to have you here! The challenge never ends for me, tho, as I'm writing a book based on this blog and its happy population. So, the adventures will keep on coming! See you soon, Indigo xDelete
What a wonderful piece to end with. And I can just see Bear in his gaudy - no, his cheerful - shirt, hurtling into the future with his exceptional writer friend.ReplyDelete
Take a bow, please :)
Hey Jenn! Yes, the shirts are never gaudy - "tastefully exuberant" is closer. And thank you, it's always a pleasure to see you here =) Indigo xDelete
Nothing like a big rush of adrenaline to pick the spirits right up! And Bear is right. The depth of your wealth cannot be measured, my friend.ReplyDelete
Hey Jayne! You're a good friend, Red. Thanks for enjoying this with me. Love to the lads! Indigo xDelete
As Vlad once told me, "You know, mom, you really are rich.... because you love what you do." Wise boy, that. I wonder who raised him? If you love what you do half as much as we love reading what you do, you are most definitely rich beyond measure!ReplyDelete
Hey Paula! That's a very kind thought, and a lovely way to round the month off. You've been here since the beginning; I'm delighted my nonsense has yet to wear thin. See you soon, BoomBoom! Roth xDelete
Well, of course your car wasn't full... King had most of your ties, remember? :-)ReplyDelete
Indigo, it has been a real joy having you participate in this challenge and a pleasure getting to know you. I loved each and every post. Thank you for playing with us and especially for all your extra efforts with the t-shirt designs. I really appreciated that you continued even after the batteries in the cattle prod gave out. :-)
Hey Nicky! Oooooh, you're a few years too early, but how right you would be these days! My rack of twenty silk ties has been reduced to two spattered with zebra carbonara and marinara sauce, and a pair of odd shoelaces. And truly, it's been my pleasure x IndigoDelete
Don't encourage him Nicky. This man LOVES a cattle prod.Delete
Alistair, hush. They'll all want some.Delete
Life isn't about the stuff you've collected, but it is a gentle reminder of all that your life has been about. If one's stuff (read here way too much stuff) was a measure of one's life, mine is rich. On the other hand, it is really one's experiences that really enrich your life. This challenge has been enriching as well. It has enabled us to reach beyond our usual and expand ourselves as writers.ReplyDelete
Hey Linda! Yes, all true. I have a handful of special mementos, worthless trinkets that are priceless to me. But sadly, fewer ties than I used to have. Indigo xDelete
Indigo, my big blue friend, I've really enjoyed hanging out with you and your strange menagerie of animal friends this month. I've been a longtime reader for a while now, and you reminded me why. :)ReplyDelete
Hey Mike! Thanks matey, it's been my pleasure to have you here. I think we deserve a pizza for getting through February? Yes, for sure. I hope your face will be rejoining you for March? Or at least dinner; I scare easy. IndigoDelete
Excellent last piece for the challenge, Indigo. I've enjoyed reading you all month. And I'm still loving that stylized wedge of cheese I'm seeing everywhere. Awesome :) - mikeReplyDelete
Hey Mike! It's heroic cheese, I can't deny it. And thank you, I've really enjoyed yours too; I'll continue to follow your and Nicky's adventures. IndigoDelete
What a fabulous ending to an amazing writing challenge! Congrats for surviving!ReplyDelete
Hey Mia! Thanks for your support throughout the challenge! Indigo xDelete
Not only have you passed the finishing line but you did it in a most triumphant way; head up, arms aloft and with the crowd behind you. You've shown you're no slouch and though the race was tough and the competition fierce, you got there in pole position.
Not that I watched of course. It's on record and I'll catch the highlights later. yadda yadda yadda.
Great stuff bud!
Alistair! Thank you for your canned applause and warm sporting metaphors. Not to mention the recorded-after-watching-the-race-on-tivo comments. I salute you Sir! See you and your good lady in ten days! IndigoDelete
I'm doin' the porage, mind.
Wonderful post Indigo! Made me think about my own life and my own situation these days, and it made me feel better too!ReplyDelete
Congratulations again on finishing this thing, and finishing it strong!
Hey Kato! Thanks, m'dear! I've been thinking of you on your new adventure, and hoping for cool and hoopy things to head your way =) Indigo xDelete
Your imagination occupies a magical space, you know that, Indigo? I love the sense of closure this entry brings to the month of February. It's been a pleasure reading your entries during this long, trying challenge. I'll definitely be dropping in on you every now and then, my friend.ReplyDelete
Hey KZ! Thanks matey! And yep, I agree with your February thoughts wholeheartedly. I'm still near comatose. And you're in my blogroll, so expect visits. IndigoDelete
