how about a spotlight thread, y'all!

a spotlight thread (for those of you who don't know) is a dedicated thread all about YOU! you will be assigned a week (or, rather, a half week) where your fellow may 2011 ddc-ers will ask you questions (and you will be as forthcoming as you wish). c'mon it's fun!

we currently have over 90 members on the roster and (depending on when in may or late april or early june you are due), we've got between 31 and 36 weeks to go.

spotlight threads will begin on sunday and thursday. if we have overwhelming interest, we can adjust.

so, just post here if you're interested. if you have a particular week (and day) you'd prefer, let me know. if not, you will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.

let's get started - first spotlight starts this sunday!

looking forward to learning more about my fellow ddc-ers!

ladies, do you mind if i eliminate the spotlight threads for the week of oct 3rd (thursday) and the week of oct 10th (sunday). i'm going to be out of town at my brother's wedding and would hate to miss any threads. kim and emily, you would just get bumped a week.

is that ok?

also, if anyone needs their week assignment changed, let me know.
