    God, I must be in a combative mood today, judging by what I've posted on Facebook, AW and my writer's group yahoogroup. I've attracted flak from Scarletpeaches too.

    It's probably best to go to bed. Goodnight one and all.

    I like your siggy, Jallenecs. :3 The dreamstigator one in particular.

    I most recently started to rework one of my old pieces that's been running around in my head for *counts* wow, about 7 years, and it's strangely inspiring and exciting especially since I've joined a real life writing group and have made changes in the plot that are working really well. :3

    Hi! We already have a Psycho in the Cantina (or many, depending on how you want to read that statement), so you get to be Pink, I guess. I'm Junely, pull up a chair, have a magic glass of the beverage of your choice. Don't step on the smibbles, and watch out for the kraken, she's tetchy.

    Always good to know that your writing is going well!

    No intrusion. The doors to the Cantina are always open (unless you're a Z-word, because we don't serve their kind in here; you want the Horror Hounds and the Mummy Chihuahua for that).

    Crazy is relative in here, thank you! We're all very very normal in here. We have certification and everything. At least in comparison to one another.


    Comparison to the rest of the world? Yeah, we're bonkers.

    So, I was told on SYW that I probably need a person which English is his or her first language to proofread my WIP. But since half of my WIP is in my laptop and my laptop is in comma, I'm having second doubts about seeking someone now and perhaps just start something new to refresh my mind during this college break.

    A bit like pork, but salty. It's a tradition in Venezuela to eat Capybara because of Lent.

    Sounds tasty then, if properly prepared.

    Does it not count as meat, then? So you can eat it on Fridays?

    Smile

    I would venture to guess that Jesus never ate Capybara.

    Well, Jesus didn't have to put up with Lent, either, seeing he was Jewish.

    Yeah, Spanish conquistadors reported it as an amphibian creature so they could it. Church had it classified as such for a century or so and simply let it pass. It was the only red meat animal aproved by the Vatican to be eaten on Lent and although times have changed, the Capybara quirk still remains.

    I think I knew that, now that you have explained it.

    But this time I shall hopefully not forget I know it the next time.

    So Mr. Kricket and I were just talking about cows and how they all look different in different countries. I mentioned something along the line about how in the US we have the black and white cows for milk and black ones for meat.

    I chuckled and said, "We're racist. We kill the black cows and eat their meat."

    Mr. Kricket looks at me appalled and says,"Don't be racist, we kill the brown ones too."

    We then both died of laughter for a while and I thought I'd share.

    BTW, I'm fully aware that I am an evil person and will possibly (well, most likely) go to hell one day.
