    A temporary babble thread which will be locked when the servers come back up.

    Normal RoC applies, keep it light and friendly please.

    And thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your support and patience during our recent problems.

    :) I've started a couple fun-type game threads to help pass the time.

    I'll be quite interested to see what the trivia quiz turns up, some of us might learn some stuff we didn't know. And some people might even avoid future scams.

    those were white Queen Zen, you can still get the green ones now. I'm sure it won't be long before someone tells you where.
     
  12. Wish I'd remembered about this before I started killing Harbingers. Though maybe I'll be lucky, there'll be a revert, and the two that didn't give robes before now will!

    I'm going to miss most of this and wouldn't have been playing anyways; elder has a social this evening, which means I'll be forced to do her hair for her and apply much sparkly stuff, and then it's off to the younger threes christmas concert thingy.

    Bleugh, too many social events in one week!

    Nooooooooo only 2 of us here to eat em all ! I don't need more cookies.

    Well, I haven't done the cut out cookies.......yet. Guess I might do them today maybe.

    No peppermint bark... but I have made candy canes smashed in pink and green rice krispie treats instead, & cherry cookies, snowballs, pizzells, haystacks and other cookies. Sent em off to kids and my brother, and a neighbor, yesterday. And I still have cookies left for .. us 2.

    I guess if I get really bored here today, I can always bake up some Sheltie doggie treats, for their canniney Christmas ! :)

    I wish I didn't lived in Korea so that I could bake, and that I could have an awesome Christmas. Instead, I'll be at theme park... which isn't nearly as fun. =[
    I miss ovens!!

    ONLY A MOTHER WOULD KNOW...

    ~A Cup of Tea ~

    One day my mother was out, and my dad was in charge of me.

    I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys.

    Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water.
    After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my mom came home.

    My dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'
    Mom waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy; and she watched him drink it up.


    Then she said, (as only a mother would know), "'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water,
    is the toilet?"

    Well since this IS a babble thread, I think we all need to be very very cautious of which Decembery songs we listen to or may sing in the month of Dec. [depending on where we may live].
