Cool Blue

Ah, a refreshing shift in palette has occurred over the past two volleys. The match began with a lot of orange and red, but now we're into Mark and Mig's blue period.

And another ampersand! Be still, my heart. And with it comes a plea by Mark for humans and dinosaurs (or at least Brontosaurs) to place nice with each other. See, this is what I like about the ampersand...it's a connector. It brings people together. With dinosaurs. This is all in the Chicago Manual of Style, BTW. And I quote:

Only use an ampersand instead of "and" when referring to cooperation between human beings and dinosaurs.

This larger one isn't quite the cutie that Ampie is, but I'll take it.

Stylistically, we're still generally working within the stylistic framework established by Mark with the very first shot. It'll be interesting to see if Mig deviates from that at all with his final two shots. Might work against him with the voting if he doesn't.
