I live about 15 miles from the hotel, but I haven't registered because I really can't afford it. I would love to be able to attend the convention and the hotel room would be like a vacation! Thanks for your generous contest!!!

My favorite poem: by Pablo Neruda

Poema 15

Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente,
y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te toca.
Parece que los ojos se te hubieran volado
y parece que un beso te cerrara la boca.
Como todas las cosas están llenas de mi alma
emerges de las cosas, llena del alma mía.
Mariposa de sueño, te pareces a mi alma,
y te pareces a la palabra melancolía.

Me gustas cuando callas y estás como distante.
Y estás como quejándote, mariposa en arrullo.
Y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te alcanza:
Déjame que me calle con el silencio tuyo.

Déjame que te hable también con tu silencio
claro como una lámpara, simple como un anillo.
Eres como la noche, callada y constelada.
Tu silencio es de estrella, tan lejano y sencillo.

Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente.
Distante y dolorosa como si hubieras muerto.
Una palabra entonces, una sonrisa bastan.
Y estoy alegre, alegre de que no sea cierto.

========= English version ==============

Poem 15

I like it when you are silent,
because it is as though you are absent,
and you hear me from afar,
and my voice cannot touch you.

It seems
that your eyes had flown,
and that a kiss had sealed your mouth.
As all things are filled by my soul,
you emerge from such things
filled with my soul.
Butterfly of dreams,
you are like my soul
and you are like the word

I like it when you are silent,
and that it is like you are distant.
It is as though you are saddened,
butterfly of lullabies,
and you hear me from afar,
and my voice cannot reach you.

Let me grow still
with your silence,
and let me speak to you
with your silence;
it is clear like a light,
simple like a ring.
You are as the night,
silent and with eyes of stars.
Your silence is like a star's,
so far away and unadorned.

I like it when you are silent,
because it is as though you are absent,
distant and anguished
as if you had died.
A word then,
a smile is enough.
And I am gladdened,
glad that it is not so.

Thank you !

Please enter me! I have been waiting for this contest (more than any others!) since I can't afford to go on my own. It would be fantastic to be with OLSer's who share my love of sweepstakes. Come on April 2nd, come on! (LOL)

Thank You! This Contest Rocks!
Oh how cool would it be to have to have a visual when reading y'all's posts!!! I would love to meet some OLSers and see what goes on at convention.

My cat, Cajun Zydeco, promised to keep up with my dailies while I'm gone if I win...

Not only would I want to win this trip...I would love to help OLS give away stuff...remember I am a wrestling ring announcer, I was on 4 game shows...what would be better to have a celebrity OLS spokesperson...

Could you imagine me giving away...stamps, a digital camera...IPOD...come on...I would be mobbed...

I would meet all my OLS homies and have a blast doing it!'

And maybe I could win stuff for myself too!

This would rock! Hope I win!

Pick me, pick me!!

Just yesterday I was reading thru all the threads about the convention, wishing I was able to go. I even wondered if OLS would be giving away a trip to the convention like they did last year!
