Go for it, if you'd like. We'll cap it there, though.

Been a busy week for me, but I promise if I haven't gotten to your piece (and LTU, I owe you a much better review, with line edits) then I will this week. I'm reformatting my compy tomorrow, throwing some windows and linux back on there, and then I'll be good to go.
I like basketball, hanging out with my friends, reading, slamming a garbage can into a pimp or two with magical heavenly powers. You know, teenager stuff.

I would like to appeal to everybody to use the words "Reading Excuses" in their subject lines of their emails. I could set up more filters so that they all naturally go to the right place, but it's much easier if you all just facilitate my laziness.

People are supposed to. It's in the rules. I remember this because I wrote them, because I'm anal-retentive in that way. :P

I finally got to read that backlog of submissions in my inbox! Yay! And then my PC kicked the bucket two weeks ago, so I have a whole new backlog to work through. ::)

Sooooo...   I never submitted my piece for review :(  The sad part is, it was actually written, but then I went and found out I was going to be a dad and my brain fell to bits the last few days.  I could send it out now, or I could just wait for Monday.  Take your pick.

You were on the list, Cynic. Go ahead and send it out, just for the "date", use Monday's date.

K, tried sending out my story from my main email address and got this message:

I tried sending it again from a different email address, but I'm still not sure if it made it through.  Can anyone explain what's going on?

I'm afraid I have no idea, but I can tell you that your submission did get through. It's in my inbox now.

Whoa. Um... I don't know what to say to that (other than a snarky "Hotmail sucks"). I haven't gotten the email from your other account, either. It looks like someone thinks you are spamming them. That's what I gather.

I'll keep you updated on whether I get anything. I may also do a test submission to the email list and see if I'm being bounced too, in the event that multiple accounts of yours don't work, Cynic.

EDIT: Of course, the minute I post the message, I get it in my inbox...

EDIT2: The one from your Readingexcuses.com mail address, at least.

I got it too...

*sigh*

You just had to give me a really long one this week, didn't you Cynic? Right when I was getting so close to catching up. Oh well. I'll get to it. ...Someday. :P
I've already conquered the world. This is exactly the way I want it.

Well congratulations, that's great news (at least, I'm assuming it is. I know for some people it can be anything but good...).

Oh, yes. I thought I mentioned this, but apparently not, so congratulations. :P
