    *pokes head in, sees all the changed avatars, leaves a note to see if she was effected*

    Morning folks!

    Had a surprise baby shower last night and stayed up way too late. I'm tired and my hips hurt. I think I'm going to lay on the couch for the rest of the day.

    Edit: No change, yet.... *looks around at silently watching mods* Not that I'm asking for one or anything. Happy April Fools!

    Did you get this car used? Because either you got a very charitable previous owner or a very lazy one who didn't clean out the car. But even then, you'd think the dealer would have found the money..... Hm.... *ponders*

    I think you may have been asking.

    Hope you feel better after a bit of rest.

    I'm working on a synopsis *cue ewwwww reactions* while everyone is out. My father-in-law is visiting, so I don't expect to get much done today.

    I never had one, so I don't have one to pinch. I don't know whether to feel pleased or left out.

    Apparently I've now joined in.

    It occurred to me a few minutes ago though that given that April Fool's officially ended here just over three and a half hours before I complained, the whole point was moot.

    Mind you, now that my non-existent avatar has been pinched, what I do ask for the return of? *Scratches head*

    The synopsis is done -- except it's five pages instead of three. This may be an issue.

    sorry hon, you're on American time for April Fool's day! I guess, just rack it up as another April Fools.

    I'm frickin' tired. Parents have finally contacted me - dad is copying and pasting the link instead of clicking on it... and getting dire results. Trying to urge him JUST TO CLICK THE THING. Trying to explain to him "copying and pasting 'here is the online application' rather than the link is not going to achieve the desired results...."

    Clearly, I am not notorious enough. I need to do something memorable and noteworthy.

    Any ideas, people?

    I think that's how all synopses begin: way too long.

    In my case, they seem to also include scenes that don't make the final cut in the ms. Hmmm.

    It's not unusual to find money and/or drugs and/or taxidermy in used cars. Well, the last might be specific to AK.

    I found some foriegn coins and white powder on my last car-dig. I'm guessing the powder is some kinda funky processed sugar. Maybe I'll try it in my tea.

    And the prius is new! Clearly someone was trying to smuggle cash and missed some.

    I would advise against that.


    Especially if work comes with random drug tests.

    It seems such a small amount for that, really. But it's possible.

    I still think it's some sort of promotion thing from Honda Toyota (?).

    I think there's more to this than just the missing avs. If I didn't have yet/still/an endless supply of more papers to grade, I'd look into it.
