A-Z Challenge - Are you Ready - Get Set . . . Wait up, wait up!

Yeah, yeah - like I'm ready;
Like I've been in training these last weeks;
Like I've pre-dated auto-posts;
Like I'm on top of this challenge;
Like hell I am . . . 

I'm on the fence thinking what the hell;
Who's the upcoming April Fool here?
Why did I volunteer to be a Jack . . .
Well, I'm in now and no going back;
So off-the cuff it'll be, and a literary theme to boot!

I was going to get organised, too, before April 1st. Made an A-Z list, filled in some topic titles (erm, just A-C so far!), and that's as far as I've got! So I'll be off-the-cuffing like you!

Hi Paula,

Some people are so damned organised they're list is complete, their offerings composed and dusted and on auto post.

Oooh, I'm so pleased to know I'm not alone in facing the night-before agony! ;)

I like the poem. That should set fire to those who aren't organized yet. :)

Squee hee! This is about the right size post Francine so you're preparing after all! I agree, pre scheduling really isn't facing the challenge - it isn't hard enough that way - heck, but I'm lazy, all for the easy peasy way out! Pre scheduling means even if I get hit by a bus you still have to read my posts, ha ha ha ha ha .....

Hats off to you!


Well tis past my bedtime as you can probably work out. Been out and tossed back a few coldies...

It’s cool to see you’re doing the challenge, too. It will be so much stressful fun. I’m just as unprepared. Then again, I always leave everything until the last minute. Would I expect myself to be prepared ahead of time at least once? Nope!

Hi D,

I wouldn't expect anything less than organised from a teacher! ;)


Francine Howarth said...

Hi Manzanita,

Hee hee, believe it my arse' is feeling the heat! ;)


Francine Howarth said...

Hi Angelina,

ROFL: I'm happy with A for Apple, B for Banana etc., and a bit of fun besides! ;)


Francine Howarth said...
