Just to keep you all up to date...

Sadly Miko is no longer with us as a mod.

Cait and Omega are back in OT assisting Rhea.

Nikki is back in RP.


It's very complex. If the pizza man truly loves this babysitter, why does he keep slapping her rear? Perhaps she has done something wrong ~ Castiel

I'm sad that it came to this.

Welcome back Cait, Omega, and Nikki.

Do not ask that your kids live up to your expectations.  Let your kids be who they are, and your expectations will be in breathless pursuit.

Thanks Tricia.

Somehow, Cait, the phrase "gird your loins" comes to mind. Best of luck to the Plucky Three: Cait, Omega and Nikki. :smile2:

And that makes me want to ask: Are they wearing Prada? :lol:

Welcome back to modding, Cait, Omega and Nikki. :)

I want a job in HRC's "shadow" cabinet. Good pay, really easy hours, lots of time off. Can't go wrong.

Good One, and believe me, it fits the situation.  LOL  I have a new asbestos suit though, so maybe I'll be just fine.  If not, I certainly am "plucky" to some.  Although, I've been called a "pistol" more often in my lifetime.  LOL  Not sure that one fits now though.  :p

Raeven forgot to add that I also am no longer modding OT at my request.

Edited by Rhea, 01 July 2014 - 09:29 AM.

The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.
- Robert A. Heinlein

When I don’t understand, I have an unbearable itch to know why. - RAH


Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.  - RAH

Sorry Rhea, I didn't mean to forget you, but you were still a mod when I started this thread ;)  - I should have updated it on Monday. Many thanks for all of your years of service :hugs:
