That reminds me of a story I wrote the last time I got drunk; it involved a court wizard who repelled an invading army that summoning massive flocks of Canada geese to "carpet bomb" the invaders.

Hahaha! That is a riot. Wock, that is about the funniest thing I've seen all week.

I think it's a fallacy to think that writers can't dance. My mother is a writer, has been all her life, mostly fiction, screenplays. And she was a champion jitterbug competitor in her youth and still dances up a storm. She's the reason my siblings and I can dance too. My brother, a professional composer, wowed us all at his wedding when he and his new bride did a routine that would have put Fred and Ginger to shame!

Who says we can't use many different parts of our brain fully, eh? :wink:

Wock has too much free time.

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

Outstanding! I knew we had one extrovert in the bunch! You get to chair the First Anniversary Dance Party and Reunion for Scrivenistas, which Vic will co-host at his compound in StockPond. Hoping he will serve his famous Baked Bean Pizza, too! :P

Well, I always test as an introvert, but I definitely have an extroverted side! I'll do it! Not sure about the baked bean pizza, but, as chair, I can guide us into a healthy and delicious assortment of foods. Vic, you'd best behave and keep that LD fellow in check. You will all be dancing fools before the night is over.

When I let him of the leash, the fool Vic, dressed in his welder`s protective leather gear, does a pretty mean `Dance of the Seven Veils` It has been know to drive women to distraction....or is it nausea? I think probably the later. But!!! mes amis...there is no accounting for taste...or indeed...lack of it ..is there?
