 :flag: phew...I'm worn out from reading this! Obviously it takes INSANITY. I don't know if I was completely insane before I started writing, but it's driven me over the edge! I'm better when I'm editing. When I'm writing new material I am living in another reality. It sure makes it hard to do anything else..like my job!

Okay..let's have a poll..I think Audal is a dude. (especially since Patrick sort of let it slip, know him on purpose).
Anyone else?

And speaking of keeping the creeps and malcontents off the forum, I wonder what ever happened to Lilly?  She was kind of our self-appointed creep police.  I'll see if I can entice her to come back.

Yes, we must hear from the demon-kitten herself.  Believe me, I have had enough bad experiences with people being negative and ruining forums for other people that I will be vigilant about keeping a lid on any of that sort of behavior.  I've been dying to ban someone, but everyone has been far too cool!

yup, I have to agree. For the first few posts I was convinced you were one of us audal but I feel more and more that you're actually a gent. Patrick, will we get karma if we're right?

Karma & ovations for Lotheus for (a.) the most excellent pep talk... and (b.) upholding my unintentional gender mystery, which I promise I'll maybe possibly consider revealing if properly motivated! 


Funny, with all this pregnancy talk, I at first glance I read this as "Karma and ovulations for Lotheus..."

Lynne>>> "at first glance I read this as "Karma and ovulations for Lotheus...""

Wait - is Lotheus having a gender crisis, too???

Good Lord - this site has powers FAR beyond our understanding!!!

In another thread, I volunteered to reveal the mystery - just drop me a PM b/c maybe some of you want me to remain without a gender???

It's okay, audal, we know you're a hermaphrodite! :o  Okay, now I have to smite myself...

Lotheus, you weren't supposed to give it away.

Audal, why don't you hold off telling anyone until the procedure is complete, then you only have to give one answer. :wink:

I have an even better idea.  I'll just go through half of the procedure!  Nothing like straddling the fence on this... which sure, might hurt 50% of me... but sacrifices must be made to maintain one's identity.

Plus, when the circus comes to a town near you, I will most likely be able to give you all free passes, what with me being the feature attraction and all!   :popcorn: :popcorn:
