Sir, you're replacing the string on a Fender Drabblecaster.
Do you really want to know the answer?
I hate it when people "string you along" for answers to simple questions!
My evil twine warned me that tales of broken string would just sow dis-cord.

Knot bad, but it didn't toe the twabble line & it ham strung some syllables.

Frayed knot. That tangled mess had a twisted spelling of "nautical" ("knot-ical" would've squared it) and loose ends. (No punctuation)

My air is running low, darkness clouds my vision, and I hear my mother. She's been dead for years, but her voice is so warm.

No real point, just had this thought while playing Dead Space.

Star light, star smite

When you wish up on a star,
you will burn in atomic fire.
Then that star's gravitic "hug"
will squash you like an ashen bug.

Fortunate

Minsu sipped his green tea with pleasure, his meal comfortably finished. The paper from the cookie read, "YOU WILL BE."

¿Hruh? 'Fraid I don't get this one. "YOU WILL BE" what? Is this a fanfic or pop culture reference?

Is this a sequel to my charming:

If I could breathe, it would be amusing.

The universe hates me, but I won this one. The fortune cookie read "Your an idiot." No, You're an idiot you stupid cookie!

I just wanted to jump in on the Fortune cookie madness. I actually do something like this on twitter, #EvilFortuneCookie. It's a cookie that wants you to kill yourself or just be sad. EG: "Jumping in front of a train is the only way to make the sad go away. #EvilFortuneCookie"

Not really important, just thought I would share.

Fun concept but Twitter's useless hash-mark search shows nothing for that tag. (Reason 5,822 why Twitter sucks)

It frequently gets really dark and is often removed. In fact, there was a time that my account was unsearchable because of it. None of my tweets were cataloged and I was basically invisible to anyone but my followers.

But you know what they say, fight the man and whatnot...

Pure story pipeline question here.

Is the actual Twitter channel for the winning Twabble the

@TheDrabblecast

tag? I've seen maybe like two in the last couple of months on that tag, which does seem to have a stady stream of Norm's streams of consciousness. Case in point, I see one from about 6 hours ago saying 'That was our 100 character story winner this week. Congrats to Algernon Sydney is Dead!" But no story preceding it.

6 days ago, the nevermore_66 story *did* show up, plus a follow-on tweet for 'that was the story winner'..

Anyone else having this problem?
