Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Vana, that is a riot! I’ll just ride the coat tails of your glory then. If I can make it to 2k I’ll be pretty pleased. Though 5k “mariner”.... *drool*

Well, Scribbles, looks like your pretty close in any case. Wouldn’t take too much, just saying. :roll:

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for the might-have-beens. - Arthur Ransome

Hmmmmmmm . . . let's see, what are my choices here . . . chase you around with a very sharp broadsword which is too close to running with scissors than I like . . . orrrrr, forgive you because you're crazy from the Coke . . .

Decisions, decisions . . . :whistle:

Aw heck, I'm too tired to chase anyone today, (however Tooks, put that duct tape away :nono: ) and my reputation for being a vicious killer could use a break. LOLOL . . . of course I forgive you Mom!

At least the food here won't make me gain any more weight. I don't need that!

Don't care for Chinese though, so while you guys eat that, I'll just polish off the rest of the pizza...... :D
