If it's not too much to ask, I'd like 'smothering with love definition 4a' added to my attack roster and maybe the distraction of not knowing which definition 4a is.

I really hope that 'turn the other cheek' doesn't come up to bite me in the butt... twice.

I've gotten through five. It's been difficult getting the computer since I now have three children who insist on playing The Sims every spare moment of the day. It only works on my computer, of course. I did hide the CD on Friday but we've had a busy weekend entertaining. It's only one more week. You can wait. And I'll be done in pleanty of time.

It makes sense to cut Imban. If anyone kills Imban, they kill everyone including themselves and the deathmatch has no winner, on the other side no matter who wins, Imban also wins.

I guess you could cut Stewboy, too. I don't think he'll make it very far with only growling. I just picture him with sad puppy dog eyes when he gets left out. He doesn't seem to be around at the moment, though.

Archmage Alex - he can split anyone's sides with just a stick figure and a thought bubble.

Ash - because it's 2.53". Across.

Smoo - he has rats apleanty to trip up the rest of us and a wererat or two that look like him so we don't know who to attack.

Zephyr - lots of icy spells and an icy gaze to freeze the warmest heart.

Lenar - he puts up with The Silent Assassin on a daily basis. I'm sure he's learned a few tricks here and there.

Zeviz - nuke and pave and ask questions later.

ADoS, because he has a big nose and he nose how to use it.

Tyranicus, because he has a lot of experience with death and should have learned how to avoid it by now.(I know he's reserved, but this is a good reason for him to be there.)

Stewboy, because he's always left out of these things and I bet he can growl really loud.

Recieved, thank you.

I'm planning a PixPro update at some point. I'll go through and make sure that any white highlights, noise, and cutoffs are taken care of before they're posted unless there are any objections.

Call me old-fashioned, but I think it's the meltdown of the family.

Divorce is rampant leaving many children ripped from parents that they really need. Boys are seperated from their fathers and, in many cases, left to live most of the time with their mothers, who as women, don't really know how to teach them to be men. (Also many mothers, hurt from the divorce, will constantly put down the fathers in front of their children giving the image 'men are bad'.) With absent fathers in many boys' lives they have to turn to other male role models to compensate. The most available male rolemodels are those seen on TV. And when, as already stated, our media culture glorifies violence and puts an unrealistic expectation of 'falling in love' and 'things always work out for the good guy' into their minds, it's little wonder that more and more people are turning to drugs, alcohol, and crime when their 'happily ever after' never shows up.

At least this is the opinion I've come out with after watching the Bringing up Boys series by Dr. Dobbson. The session on statistics alone blew my mind.

Not bothering to read, I'll assume that article is chronicling the disappearance of many of the pollinators in the world.
And that mobile phones may be to blame. I can't quite see the connection, though, when mobile phones have been around for decades, and this CCD has just shown up, at least massively, this year. Unless all the beekeepers got together at a convention last year and decided to use their cellphones while they worked.

'Spreading' indicates that it's something that can be caught and passed on, if the article used that term correctly.

Whatever it is, the bees know something we don't, and if they're really smart, they're doing it on purpose to trim down the human population and set the stage for their eventual world domination.

I cut off six inches of my hair, got three movies in the mail from Netflix only two days after ordering them, and got the kids to go to bed on time for the first time in a month.

But hubby was born on a Friday the 13th. (hospital room 313) I see nothing unlucky about the combinaiton. Quite the opposite. It's a very lucky day.

What's your favorite board game? in General
Agent

I hate Monopoly! You always know who's going to win 30 minutes before the game is over. I've always wanted to quit that game before it was done, even if I was winning.

Scrabble is good when playing with adults, Rumble in the Jungle is the kids' favorite. Hubby prefers Trivial Persuit but I think it's boring. How about Pictionary? I think in pictures already so I'm pretty good at that game, though it's not exactly played with a board. I love playing Chicken Foot too, but that's a domino game.

I've played Apples to Apples before. It's OK, but I wouldn't call it the best party game ever. Charades is much better.

Hey, I've visited Shadow Vale... a couple times... well, at least once for sure. To read up on Aran's scenario. Oh, and TM's thing about Settlers. And there was a time before that when I got the link for my BoX listing. I stopped to browse the topics for at least an hour that time. That's three times in the last month or so which is 3 more times then I've been to Polaris, and I actually have an account there.

I like the feather. Especially in the death scene. It'd be cool if your monster actually dropped a big red feather. My monster is supposed to drop a magical Sapphire necklace... if it were to be killed, that is.

And I got rid of the white noise for this graphic.
