Well, wights can die sometimes. They just come back. Over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. Haven't you ever read the newspaper? It always is happening there.

Yay for Enw's quote from Love Reign O'er Me - maybe the most majestic song Pete Townshend ever wrote, with a peak vocal performance by Daltrey. The Who Rule!

TGEW's sig just managed to creep me out.

Because when looking at it, I automatically understood the word "Party" in the meaning of "political party", and of course when I finished reading the sentence, it made me... nervous at least!

I think TGEW is going to be the Barrow Wight Himself's next campaign manager when he stands for re-election as the Downs' supreme over lord.

Oh yep, politics are the sport of the dead. That's why they are so creepy.

I wonder how that will work out. And I also wonder how exactly you get hired for such a job, or do you get kidnapped and forced to do it? Hmmm.


For the record, this is my most favourite signature that I've ever had. I think that I'll probably keep it for a very long time.

I stumbled upon Meela's signature:
Quote:
'The Hobbit' first impressions: 1. Thorin is hot... Oh god, I fancy a dwarf. 2. If you thought Legolas was good-looking, wait til you see the stunner that spawned him. 3. Is that... Figwit!! 4. Does Elijah Wood never age?
Not only do I completely agree, but I need to mention that at our gathering of a few Barrow-Downers over new year, we really named him Fancy Thorin.

Where do you come up with this stuff, Agan? That's just bonkers! Whoever wrote that is clearly insane.

Yeah for the record, that's something Hookbill and Lommy co-wrote in a silly story.

There are no words for how much I dislike when people use the word 'childish' to describe natural differences in others. Not everybody is like you, and the fact that you grew out of a particular habit doesn't make someone who behaves that way less mature than you. It just makes them different.

What's the point of being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes?
