We have a 130-lbs Rottweiler who wears a pink collar and sits with her paws crossed.  Naturally, we call her Princess.  Whether it's irony or simple observation, there can be great power in a name.

The Judge

[Host's Note: if you haven't seen Neil Patrick Harris' performance in Dr Horrible you should.  Google it!]

Mondays can be tough.  If you are a weekday writer like me and even if you aren't  sometimes it is hard to get going if you've spent the weekend doing chores instead of writing.  I thought it might be fun to do something on Mondays instead of waiting until Friday.  Even if you just like a challenge, you are welcome to participate
