the memberlist puts the ratio around 15:1 if those numbers are any more comforting but there's probably very little left to teach the male members about bitch fighting. listen to mbdmii for case in point.

Well, if you have a jealous wife like I do the answer is obvious, if somewhat hackneyed.

Verrrry carefully.

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!
300!?! why DC males PREPARE FOR GLORY

Glory or gory or sometthing like that.

I stuffed your Inbox with 11 chapters of brainy gray matter, (didn't all fit, some of it spilled out on your sidewalk, sorry bout that. My bad)

Consider yourself lucky, you got the version after the last major revision path.

I'm sure I've horrified Tweedy and Pheno with that first draft.

I fear it's from the writing, not the story on that one though.

So went head-hunting for adjectives and tried to massage the dialog into some semblence of believability since the pass that went out to them.

(Sorry you two, think of that version as a really rough rough framework where I was trying to get the major events put down, latest one is better... I think.)

I have no idea what's going on, so imagine there's a picture of a bunny with a pancake on it's head here.

This, I must see! Bring on the pancakes and let's have a look. Men, show us your best!

<czarnote>

This forum has and will enforce a "no sock puppet" rule. It has come to my attention that Miss Grimsley is a sock puppet, and she has therefore been banned. (My first ban! The power!) I know this isn't very PC, but forum identities are restricted to a per-body basis. If you have more than one personality living in your body, all the personalities must share one identity on the forum. Sorry. :(

Note that sock puppets will be banned on a first-reported basis, so report your other personalities before they report you.

Then you're a greedy SOB (DOB?). Give one of those bodies to Strawman so Miss Grimsley can have her own address.

Well that saves me the trouble of finding an affordable exorcist.

Should have let Miss Grimsley be the one that was left standing, though.

You forgot to wield your Czarist powers for your own self-interest by that banshee to start over at one, whereas the hand in the puppet is much closer on your tail.

Plus he's got shifty eyes and small hands that smell like Miss Grimsley's dirty socks.

Better carry a packet of wipes if you ever run into him and need to shake hands just to be polite.

Haha-- I just found out that the new forum is run by a creepy robot stalker that remembers birthdays and sends drunk emails at 1 in the morning to girls that it misses...
Apparently Devora got this email (and I assume everyone who hasn't visited in awhile)

Hi devora,

I tried to get in touch with you before about coming back to
http://drabblecast.freeforums.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false -- we want you back!

Let me know if you need any help.

--
Thanks, The Management

PS... I still think about you. I miss your eyes.
PSS.... Can I atleast get my Judas Priest albums back at some point?

I added those last two, but still. The nerve!
