    Rollin' Rollin Rollin'!

    Okay, everybody put on your seat belts; it's time to move on. Please keep your arms and heads inside the bus. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Anything you say can, and will be, held against you. Do not fold, spindle or mutilate. Objects in mirror may be closer than they appear. No, those jeans don't make you look fat. Not responsible for lost luggage. Please return your seats to the upright position.

    Were we to publish a travelogue of the thread's summer road trip, it would become The Great Story of 2009.

    ??? Back to classic Ren? That isn't too bad. Waaaaaaaaaay better than the sparkly monstrosity. Much more befitting the somber angst of the Roundtable.

    Like all great stories, it has its roots in the oral tradition of great epics and a hero with a tragic flaw, mecurial gods, great trials and tribulations, a visit to the land of the dead, all we need is a good flood mythos and Bob's yer uncle.
