I haven't swapped yet and was planning on joining another one in a few days when I've been a member for a month, but I think I will have to do this one instead!  I LOVE CHUCK PALAHNIUK!  There couldn't possibly be a more interesting theme for my first swap!!! I'm ridiculously excited....

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohooohooohoooooooooo.') -Flails madly-

Oh happy days!

Er. Not to get too over-excited or anything.

Three years running I've missed out on writing to Chuck. Sigh sigh.

Anyway. I'm going to go scrounging for ideas. Whee.

Whee, me!

I've been counting down the days 'til I could join a swap, lame no?
I came very close to joining a swap just yesterday, but decided not to 'cause I didn't explode with ideas when I first came across it.

I keep getting some awesome ideas for this one though.. I just hope they don't end up really tacky.
