Week 2 Topic!  
It's time for the week 2 topic! In keeping with last week, this week's topic is a little later, but you'll also have more time to write.

Please submit your entry links in the polls, or firesign10 might miss it!

The topic for week 2 is:


Happiness in a Bottle

In this day and age, everyone's looking for a quick fix- some magical way to make our lives happy and more fulfilling without needing to work for it. Whether it's the soma of "Brave New World", the genie of "Arabian Nights", alcoholism, or that life-changing message in a bottle found on the beach, it seems like we're all looking for something more in their dregs.

Spin this bottle topic any way you like.

The elixir of life! =P I think the topic this week sounds really pretty. I get all sorts of images of sparkly things in colourless glass bottles. =D

I just had to say that Bill Cosby Himself is one of my favorite dvds of all time.

Dad is great.
Gave us chocolate cake.

I don't know why, but the topic inspired me and I wrote my entry in a night. Of course, the characters of the entry have been asking for some face time for a while now....they may have liked the topic a bit more than me. Gwendolyn may not seem like it, but she is very pushy in her own special way.

What I like about Bill Cosby's comedy is that he's usually able to make people laugh with no sex humor, no drugs, no profanity, etc. He has a certain amount of dignity and self-respect that shows through in his comedy despite the fact that he's there to have a good time.

I'm sorry that it made you sad. There's definitely a bit of social commentary in his act, here. To help console you, I've included what was my second choice for this week's video:

:-) Absolutely. This one didn't make the cut because of the advertising at the end. I'm not sure the Flame should be condoning beer advertisements, y'know?

But man, it's fricken' FUN.

^_^ Looking forward to seeing what you've got coming!

I took it in a slightly different direction, but it was so much fun I couldn't help it!

Afraid I'm going to be dropping out this round -- too much of that what's-it-called, Real Life stuff muddling up my brain. XD

Good luck, everyone! :)

I concede this week. Just not inspired.

It was a crushing first week defeat for me, but I couldn't resist submitting a Just for Fun. :D

I just wanted to say that I like reading all the entries, or most of them, before they're due, so I like reading them when people post them here. As to that, it's a tad inconvienent when people don't post to their entry as a link. I know, I know copy-and-paste isn't hard, but it's also more convienent just to click. :)

Just adding my two cents. :)

I'm an idiot, and forgot about the time difference over in America. Guess that's me out for this month.
