    CELLA!




    Hey, to the rest of you too, I guess.
    "I never said, 'I could write.' I said, 'I could, right?'."

    Hushpuppy: "When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me flying around in invisible pieces. When I look too hard it goes away. And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I'm a little piece of a big, big universe and that makes things right. When I die, the scientists of the future, they're gonna find it all. They're gonna know, once there was a Hushpuppy and she lived with her daddy in the bathtub." ~ Beasts of the Southern Wild

    Edited to add:

    Waaaaaiiiiit a second. KenthePen has been on AW longer than I have. OK, got me there. But what about here in the Cabaret, huh? Huh? When was the first time he stuck his head in here?


    Edited again to add::

    AND he smells like cabbage.


    Edited a third time to add:

    And for all you know, he's a girl. An uuuuuuuugggly girl.




    You can, too.

    I would certainly be an ugly girl. Six foot two inches, two hundred pounds of romping stomping dynamite.

    Maybe you should reconsider. Is being the new rasta-footed girl so bad?

    Oh, those weren't the qualifications for being new. Those were the qualifications for some chick I'd bring here, to strategically stop being the New Girl and yet not forsake more New Girl attention than strictly necessary.

    KtP is already here, and not a damn thing I can do about it. So I may as well make the most of him.


    *walks around KtP, mulling over the possibilities*


    ...but apparently, he's not a girl. The best I can do is demand you all start calling him "New Boy."

    Um... Jay... that poodle now has a bulge in its chest, like it has a uni-rack, or something. Is it meant to be a trannie-pooch?
