According to you guys, I'm still Trapped in Reykjavik chasing ninjas... Jerialy, JFK is a relatively nice airport; if you were stuck in LaGuardia I'd feel sorry for you.

Oh well, too bad for him -- after all he is a card carrying RPO.
quote:Ditto on the HSO critiques, and might I add that if you ever need to be offended, HSO's your guy! Just take offense to anything he says, no need for rhyme nor reason. There is even a professional registration now for HSO ofendees, of which I am the proud holder of Registered Professional Offendee License #1.
Now, I'm sure that soemthing HSO said on this topic offended me, but you know what? I don't even have to know what it is to be offended by it!
All kidding aside *smirk* HSO gives as good as he gets. ~ MikeMunsil
He should know what he's getting into if he turns his back for too long.

I got to be evil in the last one. I'm content to sit this one out completely. Being an evil antagonist twice in a row wouldn't be fair, and might be too much like a cheesy sequel to a bad horror movie. And suddenly being good in the new one would feel wholly inappropriate because I was evil last time. I'm happy to sit back, lick my wounds, and watch the action unfold without me as I dream up a plot to thwart our heroine in the next installment a few months from now.
Anyway, the Quest is all messed up for some reason, and I have to scroll horizontally to read it. Can something be done about this? I'm losing patience scrolling back and forth, and it's well known that I have little to begin with.
Thanks... I had no idea why it was happening. Maybe it was your evil alter ego that did it and not the cat?
Still.... Blasted cats on keyboards! I was doing a crit a few days ago, and Shadow, our despotic black and white female, kept leaping on the keyboard to get my attention. I believe I got most of the "jsdkjfko;j9fkdjfk 2020200kdjkdjfk" out of the crit, but if I didn't, I'm sure the author will think I'm absolutely crazy -- or crazier, depending on who it was...
There are some who would argue that cats are better than children. When the argument comes to disk drives and toast (not with butter and marmite, or butter and jam, I hope -- that would be bad), cats usually win.

Thanks, Dakota. Oh, well... maybe that HSO will turn out to be my nicer alter ego -- a clone perhaps.
I had to laugh when you gave me strong hands because I never really think of them that way.
They are strong because I play piano and guitar for several hours each day (I've been accused of having the "grip of death"). Yet I also have long, slender fingers which makes my hands look... how shall I put this... not-so-masculine, I suppose. Ideal for playing instruments, though, and typing. However...
...with the exception of the middle knuckle on each finger, every joint is double-jointed. This is not the advantage that it might at first seem, it is actually a hindrance, especially for guitar. But it does make for fun party tricks.
(Pointless note: My toes are double-jointed, too. Nearly impossible to break a toe when they can bend back a fair distance.)
Sorry I have been off the boards for a while. I took an hiatis to actually work on my day job (i.e. do report cards, hold parent teacher conferences, and take a week to recover. Whyew!) Anyway, here I am, just tuning in. I must say I feel the need for an EveryReady Wit Sharpener on my HUB. Otherwise, I have not a chance of keeping up with this crowd. Hmm. I wonder if Saturday Night Life is looking for writers.... There are more than a few on this board who could really run with that!

If you are looking for Mary Robinette, she's a good personal friend of author Ken Scholes ("Lamentation" and "Canticle"). His blog: http://kenscholes.livejournal.com/ He mentions her and Aliette quite frequently, as they both proofread his novels. (I now own a galley copy of "Canticle" that is autographed.) Maybe we could send him a desperate plea to pass along to her. I've met the fellow and he is quite a nice guy. I'm sure he would take pity on us.
