...An idea...Don't you look in here Melinda!:)
« on: December 10, 2007, 03:52:20 am »
Okay...this might be crazy and a little too short notice, but as I've read Melinda's Chicken Soup story again and again, it got me thinking..."How awesome would it be if we could write our own chicken soup stories for Melinda!"
What if a whole bunch of us backups put together a packet of "Chicken Soup for Melinda's Backups Soul" book? Do you think we could do that? And then maybe get it to her for Christmas?...We have told her so much already...but not the depths of our life! I know I myself haven't told her EVERYTHING. Her story taught me so much more about her that I didn't know...I loved it. If you think  I'm crazy with this idea, just tell me Rolling On Floor Laughing I'll understand LOL sign
Love, Alexis World Hug
We did it!

Great idea!  Thumbs Up It does seem like short notice... maybe it can be a gift for when her CD drops?
Don't look down on small beginnings - Melinda.

I would love to do this, Alexis.  I am already planning to write about her and why she is my favorite contestant ever for the actual contest in the Chicken Soup book.  Thumbs Up Huzzah!

The only problem I have with the Chicken Soup contest is reducing my essay to 200 words or less about why I love Melinda!!!

This idea would need some time, so no need to be in a hurry for Christmas.  We already have the Christmas gift, but we need good ideas like this for other occasions.  Great idea, Alexis!!!  Lightup

I know and I'm disappointed about the maximum word limit but I still want to enter the contest.  The deadline to enter is March 1st and the Grand Prize is a trip to the AI finale.
