I demand a refund!

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

OK, I retract my demand [In reply to] Can't Post

Whoever actually updated TORN 201 with the sdrawkcab titles deserves about a billion respects Smile

Thanks, PTB - I logged in today on a very, very busy day just to see what you were up to. I was not disappointed!

My only complaint is [In reply to] Can't Post

that at rapid glance, I thought "Kcabdeef" was "KC Beef" (KC as in Kansas City). Now I'm here, and where's the beef!?!!?!!?!? Smile

I have to admit [In reply to] Can't Post

Before I hit the button on all the changes, I felt a little (very, VERY distant) kinship to Tolkien that I was creating a new language. That, or I was just translating all the phrases into Welsh. Angelic

Glad everyone enjoyed it! Heart Smile

You must have felt right at home with this one, sevilodorf! [In reply to] Can't Post

This wasn't a good year to pull any big pranks, but we've got to have a little something fun on the day.

Silverlode

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Well, "dernwyn" backwards is perilously close to [In reply to] Can't Post

New Nerd. Smile (Sorry, just couldn't resist, especially because I feel pretty safe with my name going backwards, unless it means something in Celtic or Anglo-Saxon. I still qualify as "Old Nerd," if that makes you feel any better. Being new is always cool, no matter the category.)

Also, [In reply to] Can't Post

This is the longest April Fool's Day ever. It must be some sort of viral issue, maybe the same one that caused March to have 75 days.

"Starling" remains euphonic, yet in reverse, it sounds like an angry outburst. Smile
