|This week, we're all about getting creative. Whether you're a writer, photographer, or designer, you can put a competitive spin on
your talents with LiveJournal contests (more details below). Speaking of which, Frank and Meme are awaiting your inspiration on their next awesome adventure.
In the meantime, Frank lost a bet to Meme on whether Sam would visit Lindsay in the slammer (Meme rightly believed in the power of prison
love). Frank was forced to wear a pair of spiky sandals on a trip to the mall. This has led him
to wonder if you, too, have ever suffered extreme toe woe while breaking in new set of hoof stompers. Send him your best blistering tale, and
he'll slip you a pair of pink platform stilettos.|

Photo of the week
Frank & Meme
Frank and Meme have finally returned from their kayaking trip down the Russian River. Thrill-seekers that they are, they'd like you to pen the next chapter of their lives. Keep in mind that they've been asked by a secret agent to pose as honeymooners in Vegas and get matching tattoos from a spy who is planning to seize control of the Moon, Mars, and/or the lost city of Atlantis. Please post your stories of around 400 words with or without one image to frankandmeme. We'll use a combination
of comments, +1 ratings, and staff input to choose entries and post a poll in the next newsletter. An excerpt and link to the winning
entry will be published in the following newsletter. The winning author will receive 1,000 LJ tokens. All other participants will get 500 LJ tokens. We can't wait to see what happens next!
Thanks again for joining us. We'll see you next week!
