     This is my favorite sort of "not a sonnet," I think, 'cause it's got 10 syllables per line even though there's nothing remotely like iambic pentameter going on here. Let's call it instead "dactylic tetrameter brachycatalectic," shall we?

     Which ends Book XVII, Spellbound. Next week, we leap right into Book XVIII, The Raveled Sleeve of Care. And yes, I know the original quote uses "sleave" rather than "sleeve," but then "ravel" means both to tangle and to untangle, both to confuse and to make clear. So I'm doing my best to be both as well.

     Apparently, the whole "two's company, three's a crowd" bromide applies especially to little blue magical monsters.

     And Monday? We leap into Book XVIII, The Raveled Sleeve of Care, with chapter one and our 103rd overall storyline, "Sticking Plasters." Because it never ends around here!

     If I had a nickel for every time I wished I'd had my memory erased, well, it would certainly explain where all these darn nickels keep coming from.

     Now, if I survive the San Diego Comic-Con again this year, we'll have one more week of our current storyline, then it's on into the future and Book XVIII, The Raveled Sleeve of Care. Chapter one of said book, titled "Sticking Plasters," will be our 103rd storyline overall and will begin July 30th. There's always so much going on!

     If anyone would like to review, Eduard did his stupid mortal wizard stuff during our 16th storyline, "Toil and Trouble," and Juliette did hers mostly during our 42nd storyline, "Burning Down the House."

     In case anyone's wondering, that was most definitely not a sonnet. Seems to have been a love song of some sort, though...
