Caed Administrator Posts: 43 Oh, don't tease me with hope! Can I apply as an "author"? (Which I just got! SCORE!)
Francis Author Posts: 42 Seriously, you two, stop this literary foreplay and just make out all ready. We all get that you two are soul mates.
CTacker Author Posts: 129 And Courtney, You sound like you have more connections than me. "Big Fish"?! Are you for real?! Seriously though, UNC sounds great (despite the fact that EVERYONE from my highschool theatre group went there) but I just couldn't hack it in Greeley. I'll just stay in Denver and knock out my suicide-round-semesters and jet off to Oxford (Or Cambridge, so that Dani and I can finally have the rivalry we've been after for years in our relationship) and finally be as cool as everyone else. Courtney, we all must get together! You, Dani, and I. We're (me) kind of in love with you.
Caed Administrator Posts: 43 I know, right?! I had the same reaction to the Big Fish news. Brown's coming to teach at our campus was a huge thing for UNC. All of my English professors were telling me to use him as a connection as soon as he showed. So, naturally, on the first day of his creative writing class this semester, I introduced myself: "Hi, everyone and their mom has instructed me to introduce myself to you." I'm still not sure what he thought of that. We've since had some fantastic conversations (me talking over him) as I breathlessly (and endlessly, desperately) described my novel-in-the-works to him during his office hours. (We've also had an awkward conversation about his (jokingly?) sleeping his way around needing query letters that ended in the most deafening silence imaginable. :/ ) And, yes, please! Let's get together. (Discuss my first duties as paid intern.) I would be thrilled, speechless and breathless, simultaneously, to have coffee with you both <3 I must congratulate you two on creating such a fantastic site. My newfound love for you, Tacker, Dani's having been declared my soul mate, and having already won over some unborn Chinese man's child? This site has IT ALL.
Caed Administrator Posts: 43 Why isn't my author avatar showing up? Augh! What a boner-kill.
CTacker Author Posts: 129 I'll get someone on fixing that. Sometimes it takes a second to show up. And yes! We're snatching babies and raising them to have great connections. Done and Done! Hang out time, yes. I will talk to the Dani about it. She's leaving very soon though! Back to her foreign home land with her lover. (like within the next week) So we need to do it soon soon!
Caed Administrator Posts: 43 Let's do it ASAP then! I will happily drive to Denver, unless we get some crazy snow storms again.
Francis Author Posts: 42 I AM NOT CHINESE!!!!!
Caed Administrator Posts: 43 Haha then why the "dibs on china!"?
DMHedlund Posts: 80 Wow, so many plans have transpired without my knowing. Damn country internet and its utter disdain for my poor computer. It seems possibly unsafe for us all to meet (on a cosmic destruction scale) but we can definitely defy the odds (much like the Atomic Particle Smasher). (Who can tell I've been reading The Elegant Universe this morning?) Where we're going, we don't need roads! To the coffee shop!!! P.S. Francis is English...or Scottish...or perhaps Welsh. By that I mean, his alien parents produced him somewhere in the UK...probably by accident.
Francis 1) I'M ENGLISH!!! SERIOUSLY? 2) If I took over China, I could take over the world. 3) It is completely unfair for you to meet with Courtney! What if she slips something into your drink and convinces you that she is the best intern when it is obviously your ENGLISH candidate. 4) Hey Courtney, have a nice look at my Editor avatar. It's SO MUCH nicer than yours.
Caed You would want to meet with me, too, Francis, if you weren't in England pretending to not be Chinese. You do win, avatar-wise :(
Francis I do win. Thank you for finally noticing. So, what happened you three? Did you magpies go out to dinner and a movie? Did Courtney slip you a little sumpin sumpin? Is she prettier than I am? 'Cause you know you are not supposed to judge a book by the cover...you're suppose to judge it by the sex of the person who wrote it. Obviously, on this front, I win...again. Thank you for finally noticing.
CTacker Francis, Your baby making skills must be so poor that experiencing a radiating head ache the day after should be the only way to really enjoy it. Yes, we went out to coffee and Courtney talked so nice about you and about how she's going to beat the pants off of you in the internship. She does have better editing skills and writing skills than your chaotic posts (that I print out and post creepily on my wall). I wish Courtney would have slipped me something. Our feet touched....does that count for something!? That's almost second base for me! And Francis, everyone is prettier than you are. It's due to the fact that half of the population has bigger breasts than you and we all know that's what truly matters in this world. How big your boobs are compared to how low your shirt can get without causing a riot. Right D.M?! (I'd also like to point out that Dani reasons that if she wears "baggy clothing" it makes her look chubby..So she compensates by wearing incredibly tight/short/cleavage showing clothing. Nice work. Nice work.)
Caed "Your baby making skills must be so poor that experiencing a radiating head ache the day after should be the only way to really enjoy it." BAHAHA! Tacker, I would very much appreciate your constantly providing me with such witty and fantastic comebacks. If only I could put you in my pocket. Or my pants. Francis, OF COURSE I'm prettier than you. I am also a fantastic. experienced (albeit, College-wise) editor. Your writing is the only way in which you may compete with me. You are no competition when it comes to the internship, though, for I DID slip some Veritaserum in Tacker and D.M.'s teas and they told me how much they desired to give it to me and not you, despite your pretty avatar.
DMHedlund See that subtle Potter reference. This girl is good...and possibly stocking us and taking copious notes...
DMHedlund I like the dedication either way...
CTacker I did say I'd "give it to you". You got me there.
Caed JUOZAS! HOW YOU LIKE THEM AVATARS?!
minasmorgul23 Journalism all the way.
