Blogophilia Week 8.14 – A Proud Moment

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 8 of our 14th year!

You were working as waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you

I picked you out, shook up and turned you around
Turned you into someone new

Now five years later on you’ve got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don’t forget it’s me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too

“Don’t You Want Me”…..The Human League

ATTENTION BLOGGERS: PLEASE continue to post the link to your blog on either the Facebook Martien Ecrits timeline or the Ecrits Blogophilia group!!!!!! Thanks for your cooperation!



Week 7.14 Jacket Winner

Hooray for May! It is finally here! Happy May Day, Happy Beltane and all those other wonderful celebrations of spring! Congrats to Dia Jade, who once again holds on tight to the coveted jacket! But only by a mere point, as Irene Melgoza is behind her just itching to get that leather into her closet! Lika Saliscente-Phipps isn’t giving up, she’s digging in just as she plants flowers in her garden! Christopher Mitchell is unpacking more boxes, figuring he’s in perfect position to reclaim the lead with a correct guess or two! Hope you enjoyed Writer’s Choice week, and now we will think ahead to … who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic and bonus suggestions were Writer’s Choice – therefore, no additional points were given out! Likewise, last week’s picture was a Marvin picture, therefore no additional points were awarded!

Marvin’s secret picture bonus criteria was “In the Cool of the Evening!!”
W00t! There is FINALLY bacon in the house this morning, and Commander K is doing his happy dance. Nary a soul happened to guess the phrase. Though there were some lovely phrases thrown out there, we must say! Unfortunately for the Blogophilians, no points were shelled out – but we will share the bacon! 🙂

Now, isn’t that lovely??
