I look forward to receiving your entries, Dave and Ollie.

Dave, I notice you didn't include owning a waterbed in your list of reasons for entering.  :)

Hmm... Maybe a story based around not owning a waterbed...
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - open throttle in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming : "Woo Hoo, what
a ride!"

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to sleep on.

Only three weeks to go, folks. Get tickling (trickling?).  :D

Hi c-lion,

Thanks for posting this. If I'm right in assuming that this is your entry for the challenge, I'd be grateful if you could remove it from here and PM it to me instead as all entries have to be anonymous when it comes to the voting stage.

Thank you.  :)

Hi Hagarai Seiji.

The closing date for submissions is not until 25th January, so the results won't be announced for another week or two after that.

Game Over

Okay, folks, that's the deadline passed for Challenge 48, so no more entries please.

Many thanks to everyone who has submitted.

I'll be posting all the entries and the voting thingy in the next few hours(ish).  :)

I must be the most impatient person I know.

I read the entries, and voted, but now I really desperately need to know the final result.

And purely because one entry was so overwhelmingly well written in my opinion. I would like to know if it was only me, or am I part of the majority to think so.

The more I look at the watch and the calendar, the slower the time passes.

Come on Tuesday!! Move it... move it....
