Whew! I made out alive! That's what I'm most concerned with :)

Sorry you're having a rotten day, zeldas_lullaby :( Try to find some relaxing, down time!

I found a map in the secret door that had a grouping of eggz marking the spot (rather than the X) so I knew right where my evil alter ego left Meg. All's well that ends well! :D

This was awesome! Storytime absolutely rules! Is there a thread where one person starts a story and each time someone posts something (like a line or two), it continues the story? I feel like I would really enjoy that :)

I believe there was a thread that tried to get that going awhile ago, but I think it expired from a sudden forum wide writers' block demise.

Oh really? Hm...I'm curious to see what was written. I'll have to search for it...

Yep. I just wish I could remember what forum it was in. :eusa-think: I sure do not remember the title of the thread. :snooty: Just a bad memory for names I guess. :doh:

Awesome, and a perfect book for October genre month!! I finished it a long time ago (oops--I need to input a new "currently reading" book into the system), but I really liked it. A lot. So I cannot wait to discuss it with you! I'm thrilled that you're reading it!!

You hate it when a good book does that to you!

In this instance, I was being purely metaphorical--I read it on Kindle because it's not available in paperback!! :o I guess I should've said, "I could not take my eyes off the screen!"
