  • Wow, first check-in in a while and I see "A_Z" on the front page. I gotta get back here more often!

    c_b! sniff sniff. You have been missed.

    October 7, 2007

  • Wow, A_Z, this is a heck of a word. Like slumry, I'm not sure what I'd do with it. I think I'll add it to my list anyway.

    Plus, it's nice to be missed. :) It would be better to have time to be here, though.

  • Good to see you again, AZ! Isn't slumry just zooming along? She has just the right touch of obsession for this place. ;-)

    Gotta try and get c_b back in here now--things have heated up on the job, I think. Ah, work...why do we pay any attention to it when we have Wordie? ;-)

  • Oh, I am a newcomer. I have been pretty smitten with this; inevitably I must slow down and get some other things done!

    I'm glad you paid us all a visit.

  • Hey guys! Yep, I'm still bazillions of time zones away. I check in here from time to time, but haven't commented much lately I spose. I notice C_B has been M.I.A. as well; where'd she go?

    slumry, where did you blast out from? 4,000 some odd words? How long have I been away? Anyhoo, pleased to meet you!

    u, *nod*

  • Welcome back! Are you still fourteen time zones away?

    July 12, 2007

  • Pleased to meet you, A. I have *always* admired your lists.

    July 12, 2007

  • I was wondering the same thing. Long time, no see. :-)

    July 12, 2007

  • Abraxas? What are you doing here?

    July 12, 2007

  • A nice word to look at, but I don't know what I would do with it. :)

  • Prestige, face, place, the pride-relationship the untranslatable and all-important principle of social authority on Karhide and all of Gethen.
