Red Shirt


Red has been holding back a secret. Mantra tried to let the cat out of the bag, but Red stepped on the lid to the lantern. Today, the secret is out.

King of Condiments

Red is on the DL. No, not the down low… the disabled list. She is red-shirted until Friday Follies. This is an official catsup day. Yes, M3 Readers, a day where you get to troll M3 for your favorite features or a post you missed.

If you have been missing for quite a while, you may notice the long running series have been trimmed to much smaller bites now. Following the links inside a post will bring you to related topics to explore points more deeply. Click one (or seven). They all open in other tabs, so you will not lose your place.

The tabs below the header all have the features. Hover your mouse over The Map to see long-standing groups. The Filing Cabinet (over in the right sidebar) will give you a list of categories. What? You thought she did not file these things?

If you are looking for something specific, grab the search box in the left sidebar. The results page has a note, and your results will be below it. Happy hunting!

The SEP this week will let the secret out of the lantern, but for today, engage in the great American cover up: Ketchup.


There are a new crop of M3 Readers who have really terrific blogs. Some of them have not made their way to the Green Room to leave a link. If you have no idea what the Green Room is, you are missing out. It is the official networking room at M3. Unless you are in the Green Room, you will never get a shot at joining the Alumni Club. And we all know the AC has the best parties. *wink*


The Flash in the Pan for this quarter ends in three days. If you do not have your flashes linked, get busy emailing those to Red. If, by some nefarious stroke of oversight, you do not have Red’s email address, simply hover your mouse over About Momma and click on Ask Momma.

A few Flashers need to get Red their About Me. If this is you, follow the instructions in the last paragraph.

If you want to join, it is not too late! Click on Flash in the Pan under the header and follow the instructions! Everyone is welcome.

Network. Discuss. Enjoy. There are great discussions going on in the comments of the Writer’s Spotlight (RLB Hartmann), Sunday’s Flash in the Pan, Inevitable Silence, Muse for Monday (Do any of us not do this?)  and the last Saturday Evening Post (SEP). Links to all of them are in the left sidebar.

Stop by to enter to win a copy of Forty Grains of Black Powder. (Click the link below to the Writer’s Spotlight.) The giveaway ends far too soon!

PS If you have not voted in the poll, you may well have your stomach turned. Red wants to know what you are ordering for dinner (and breakfast… Mmm… breakfast).

  1. Looks like I get to play catch up everywhere. Either way come the first of the month I will have unlimited phone service if it kills me. (No more budgeting calling time, I got far too much to do.)

  3. A truly great posting Red, now go and relax, take time out for yourself and enjoy a nice chilled glass of something exceedingly nice, actually I wouldn’t mind some of whatever you are having myself but for once I will not be so nosy 🙂 😉

    Have fun now 🙂

    • Ah, Pren, I am taking care of myself. Not that my inbox would back that statement in the slightest 😉 {HUGZ}

  6. I hope whatever it is that’s got you down, it’s minor. You know my solution to anything like that: chocolate!

    • Good to see you pop in, Ginger. I hope you are doing well. Do me a favor? Check your Gravatar (or your WP credentials when you comment). Your link is not working. Not for others to follow you out from your comment or to trigger the CommentLuv. 🙁

  9. My suggestion is: if you have a cast iron frying pan, have a loved one knock you out since you’re a tough case. You need to sleep. Sleep rejuvenates the body. Rest is everything. Hope you are inactive, in repose, inactive for a bit.

    Take care, Red.
