We (Drabble Queen™) agree with Mr. Tweedy. When the need arises, we will not nibble all his body parts at once. And because he speaks so well, we will nibble his beak last. And also because beaks can nibble right back at ya.

Grinning wildly, my prose is only comes across well after Miss Grimsley fixes it.

(Ok, only a few people, Strawman in particular , will get the joke in the above line, but you can't always play to an audience of 1000's)

The joke isn't about Miss Grimsley.

Okay, Mr. ROU. First, you are making me pretty jealous by telling me you already have your second wife while I've had none.
And now, you're starting to make jokes that only Strawman gets? Watch it. I may have to start nibbling your dreams and with the amount of coffee I drink, there is no way you will get a moment peace tonight. Or maybe you will, because of the time difference. In that case: Blimey and Crikey! (Love those words, I decided I have to use them more often, so there they are)

Hmm, we've sexed the bunnie as female already, now you evince jealousy about not having a wife yet?

As the incarnation of the greek poet "Arion of Lesbos" * I have to say, that's pretty hawt.

Truer words, Strawman, truer words...

At some point in my auto-bio I'll doubtless need to reference my first occurrence of a creative writing spree.

This ended with my hospitalization and the later burning of several volumes of handwritten, possibly interesting, but definitely psychotic writing.

Regrettable perhaps, but certainly not in the same category as the burning of the library at Alexandria, (even if it approached that in sheer volume...)

Wow, the forums really HAVE changed, the "we miss you" email I got wasn't lying (you can never trust them sneaky emails).

Looks great, this is very exciting. I haven't been able to listen for a while (I am currently displaced due to a fire and have no regular internet access, except at work where I can't listen), but hopefully I can figure something out soon so I can start listening & participating again.

(fires suck by the way, I advise you all to avoid them)

zZzacha isn't the only girl on the forums, although (this being the Drabblecast), I'm pretty sure her bunny could take my tiger...which sounds dirtier than I intended it. Talia's llama, on the other hand, had better look out.

Now a tiger could take the alpacas, but no avatar can face up to a horde of Wookies.

Ladies, as much as I would love to have a real bitch fight, I think we should stick together. We KNOW we can take on the average male DC listener, but how do we stand against about 300 of them? We are vastly outnumbered, girls!

Ah, what the heck. Let's just have a bitch fight for the fun of it. Maybe the guys can learn something ;P

You're right. Since the ratio is clearly about 1:100 to our disadvantage, we must stand together.

No fighting. As Czar, all acts of violence are reserved for me. I may bludgeon, puncture and/or sever as I please, but all of you must play nice.
