The No News is No News Purgatory Thread, Volume 8
The Junklight welcomes you to Purgatory Volume 8!
This is the stripped-down version of a thread start, due to hardware factors.
Let the Pork Chops begin...
[See the final posts of Volume 7 here.]
Maryn, channeling Lilypie who's stuck behind a firewall
Oh, boy, I get to be first to post in the new thread.
My goodness, you're fast!
Hey, everyone, don't forget to subscribe to this thread, if that's how you do things.
Maryn, most impressed with Jenn
The beagles and I are here!
P.S. Just want to give a shoutout to Kimmi (Little Red Barn) for keeping track of that enormous list of Purgies and their various publishing adventures. Thanks, Kimmi!
Coming in 2014:
THE RED L1LY CROWN
Intrigue, passion, alchemy and sudden death in the opulent courts of Medici Florence.
Yay new thread!
Yeah.... my brain is done I think.
I'm here! Thank you, Maryn.
Now I'm dizzy.
2 eggs in the box this morning, i.e., my hens have started laying again!
PLUS there is a shiny new thread!
Yay on the eggs, fruittree! I want chickens, but can't keep them. : (
I offer green tea and chili chocolate for breakfast in the new thread!
What fresh hell is this?
Now I'm officially in!

For just a few more moments, the new thread is still at only one page.
It looks so cute, all tiny and dressed up in... hey! Who put the G-string on the thread? And why is there painfully loud music playing? Ew, glitter!
I need coffee...
I lieks glitter.

Maryn, with a hearty Ole!

Glitter is the herpes of the craft world. Just sayin'.
most of you remember sweetboy, whose owner, my neigh, passed. most remember his living conditions. i've started day-fostering him in my house after i witnessed him having a violent seizure which lasted over 10 min. it was this or let him suffer out in the cold or sometimes the neigh stuck the big boy in a crate in the garage for 12 hr days. no outside communication, light etc. so it is a mess here, i have my two pups in the mudroom, and cats in basement, and sweetboy a 100lb plus lab in gated area of kitchen. the neigh admits she is scared of dogs, ignorant of them,and tis true the hubs bought the dog knowing this. so since the hubs death, sweetboy has just 'existed'. we cannot keep the boy. =(
eta; we just found out daugh got a very hefty scholarship for graduate school. which i shall now wait and see which major appliance breaks down. =)

Well I did it. I stood up for myself and declared that LMP would bully me no longer. I documented everything and sent it in email form to the Big Boss. Then we had a meeting where we went over everything. To her credit she looked pissed.
So she waits a bit and then pulls LMP into a meeting. LMP came out looking seriously pissed and has been having furious whispered conversations with her posse ever since...
I think in trying to make things better, I've just made them a lot worse.
I just feel so defeated I want to cry.
