So which areas of the forum are where all the action is? The area that discusses the stories for the recent episodes?
So much to read around here, kinda makes me forget about paying my bills online. :P

Well, I of course love the story discussion.
After that, the Twitfics, drabbles and short stories are a blast. A lot of talented folk here. And DrabbleNews is a good companion for the old segments Norm used to do.

I am still around. I just haven't had a lot of time to comment much, but I am still listening to DC faithfully, and keeping up on most of the drabbles. I do miss the interaction, and hope to participate more.

I was just about to ask a question that is directly related to facebook.

So where are the hotter drabblecast girls? on the forum or on facebook?

I'd hate to see the pile of smashed cameras.
Good job of the lost weight, buddy! That's no easy task.

Thanks the first 100 was just simply taking sugar out of my diet
the last 40 has been doing cross fit 2 or 3 times a week, 2 hours of yoga, 1 hour of Pilates and an hour and a half of JuJitsu a week. (also 20 min chi gung and 30 min meditation everyday) so i really appreciate the kuddos

I now have evidence for a thing I have long suspected:

One lone weirdo lives immersed in a sea of averageness. Put simply, the Strange are surrounded by the Mean.
Because the weird is strange and the average are mean, your strangeness is continually pointed out with hohohos, guffaws and rolling eyes.

A community of weirdos, on the other hand, is immersed in a sea of strange. Like dwarves in Munchkinland, they are the *NORM*. And if everyone is the NORM, then they will inevitably wonder, "Where have all the weirdos gone?"

Congratulations, Munchkins! You have reached critical mass.

Make sure you have a torch. You don't want to be eaten by a Grue.

I made it out alive! Thanks for the torch idea, it will come in handy as I return soon to dwell in the older catacombs of Drabblecast once more!
