Hello from Michele! Great post, I did my own word cloud thing yesterday just to see what it would come up with.

I was all excited about moving to the new planet until I read and found out how cold its estimated to be. Guess I'll just hang around the ol' Earth for awhile!

srp said...

Here from Michele. Congratulations on being site of the day.

People really expect a miracle once a month? Perhaps you must expect one before you get it.
