Dusty Owl Reading at Swizzles

They have a neat feature at end of their reading: an object of desire. Basically, the organizers bring in an 'object of desire' which can be any ole object. This time it was a stainless steel ladel. Audience members, who opt in, write about the featured object. They have about 10-15 minutes to come up with a poem or piece of prose. Amanda of Bywords.ca entertained us with her faithful rendtion of Tom Jones' She's a Lady, appropriately retitled "She's a Ladel"
She's a Ladel. Whoa whoa whoa, She's a Ladel.
Talkin' about that little ladel, and the ladel is mine.
However, the evening's winner, eventually determined by applause, was Melanie. Here she is concentrating on writing what to be was the winning entry. Unfortunately, as she was writing her piece, the battery on her laptop had died, and with no power adapter, she had to re-write the few pages from memory just minutes before time was called. The prize? The ladel of course!
