There is one bye out this week - bella_devil and one drop out cheapdestiny. Both of these I can say with all sincerity that I did not see coming and that these are two folks who were definitely be missed.
That's the bad news.
Here's the good: Anyone remaining in the game has now, officially, made it to the half way point!
(and the poll is coming soon. I sent the text before I found out about the two above... oops.*g*)
