Can You Describe Your Blog in 5 Words or Less?

We currently have 74 blogs signed up for the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Blogathon, which is to take place on April 17th. Which means I have 74 blogs listed and hyperlinked, but no descriptions for them.

Descriptions are helpful, but not if they run on and clutter the page for the other 73 listed blogs (or however many we end up with). As a blogger, I know how hard it is to avoid being verbose ;)

That being said, I'm looking for blog descriptions for this listed blogs that are "5 words or less". Ain't that a biatch? It keeps it from getting too cluttered.

Submit any 5 word or less blog description that you might want added as a comment to this post and I'll update it to the list. If you haven't signed up yet, here's your chance. (hint - I need to know your blog's name and list number if you can)
