"One Cupcake Over the Line"
« on: January 19, 2014, 05:52:24 pm »

Could Wombat imagine a birthday cupcake so large that even she herself could not eat it?

Why did she create so many figments who want to make fun of her favorite rock star?

Is this plot going anywhere or are we all doomed to live forever as character studies?

Happy birthday! Please don't get bored of us anytime soon. I like the story so far, who cares what the publishers say.

I don't remember who gave Inev the birthday thread job, but whoever it was made a fabulous hire.

I don't remember who gave Inev the birthday thread job, but whoever it was made a fabulous hire.

I think it was me, but I don't remember how that came about.

Happy birthday Wombat!!!

I am glad you like the threads. Every time I kind of think "oh no I really bombed this time."

For your entertainment: there is a beautiful woman with a sweet smile who is always very friendly at work, with a little twinkle in the corner of her eye. Eventually she stopped coming in so frequently, but I saw her at a concert the other day. I was standing nearby and trying to work myself up to say something, and then I tried to lean over and say hi to another friend. And. I tripped and ended up with my face in the cute customer's hair.
In the movie this would have been "cute" but in reality I kind of stammered some gibberish and then avoided her for the rest of the night.

Inev I can't decide whether I'm going to be sorry when you leave that job and don't tell stories about your customers anymore, or whether it will be even better in grad school.

Happy birthday oh noble progenitor.
