Perhaps you have seen her. She roams the mirror world, ears attuned to the magical phrase "Mirror, mirror, on the wall who's the fairest of them all." Once perceived, she finds instantly the peephole to reality through which the questioning words have sounded. Before an eye can blink she steals her photo and vanishes, leaving the gazer only with a vague feeling that she had been there. Her photos are a sensation throughout the mirror world as a reflection of human vanity and playfulness, as these are the two motivations for the rhetorical call into the mirror. It was most unfortunate that one day at exactly 12 noon EST a worldwide flash mob met to call "Mirror, mirror..." into every looking glass in the world. For that one moment she was everywhere at once. Then she vanished.

My story must have upset the blogger system. I've been trying to publish today's story for the past three hours but it won't go through. After a long wait I get

001 java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out

whether I try to republish the entire blog or just the index. I've sent a mail off to support. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. Please stay tuned.
