Put up the maypole, string the bunting, roll out the barrel, get some chocolate and Guinness for Lili, mix up a bathtub of daiquiris for Selkie, put a *snigger* decaffeinated teabag in a cup for Thog, and essay the ancient barbershop quartet of greeting (found by Stephen Hawking embedded in the Fibonacci Series) for teacher_bear is among us. Welcome, Dave. Now you can witness first-hand the madness you've previously only heard about from artykat.
teacher_bear almost certainly didn't realise (I have to admit I almost forgot, things have been a bit mad at work and at home this week) but he arrives on an auspicious occasion, for today (tomorrow, for those of you on the other side of the village pond) marks the second anniversary of the foundation of the villages.
Yes, folks, it's Founder's Day.
Here's my first post, weighted with the prescience which has since become such a trademark of the villages, usually in relation to politics. Although, to be fair, this was in the days before I was introduced to LOLcats. It seems a very long time ago, when it was just me and jmward14 and the qnotku and the (still sadly-LJless) OJM. We've come a long way since the days when I didn't even know what ROFLOL meant and I was having panic attacks because I didn't know how to insert italics.
If you'll allow me a moment of maudlin sentimentality, I'll raise a glass to all villagers, whether you take part in the general knockabout or you watch from a distance. I'm proud to be in the company of such a bunch of good people. Here's to you, and all best wishes.
Now let's PARTY!!!!

"And there's the fact that it just plain tastes nasty."

It tastes pretty good, one you get used to it.

If you have a sophisticated palate, that is.

"Says the man who finds haggis a delicacy.
And with that, I'm off to eat my bright orange Kraft mac-n-cheez."

My case is proven.

There is that. Of course, after surviving a childhood of my mother's cooking, I determined very early that if it tastes bad it's bad for you. She and the Army certainly provided enough examples of that immutable law--as my juvenile medical records can attest.
Funny thing, once I allowed to forage for myself, I never had another hospitalization for, um, "stomach problems".
Hugs and grins,
Jean Marie
