Um, no. Because we want him to do that? All things considered, it is the safest containment strategy. Also the funniest.

Safety first


Overrated.

Wow -- that's over FIFTY people signed up now! That's amazing for such a short sign up period!

Thanks everyone who has signed up so far. Special warm welcome to those who are taking part for the first time. If you've got any questions, do shout!

In the meantime -- there's just over a week to go now, so plenty of opportunity for anyone else to join if they're still thinking about it!

I was so excited to write Vogon poetry. (Apparently that's the only kind I write--Everyone's a critic.)
Can you tell me if there'll be a Happy Ending, and if so, by whose definition of Happy Ending?
I love the challenge. I want the tiny cup.

Someone make up my mind for me, okay?
Peer Pressure. FINE! MissBlue is egging me on.
:P I'm in. Please. If I'm not too late.
