Helen has been wondering round the new board just trying to get her bearings, she has a terrible sense of direction and tends to get lost uite easily :?

Helen thinks the place is really starting to look like home from HC and thinks that a few things missing are some of her very own home made seedy bread rolls, that sbread wiht seeds in not the other kinda! and thinks before long there will be a furry ornage thing swinging on the disco ball

Helen sends a massive WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to (((joanne))) on the new job and hopes hse settles in really well and thinks she is a women so will be able to easily master doing more than 2 things at once.

Helen also apologises now as she is atrocious (just had to check this in Word :P ) at spelling and nows that some people can get really :evil: when people can't spell, she is the same about grammar

Helen says that it is really really reaaaaaaally easy to fall into Third person and finds herslef doing that on normal posts and almosts, almosts! forgets how to write normally.

Helen is just on her lunch now and thinks she shoudl get back and do some work, so she is waving buy to everyone and hopes to be able to pop back soon.
The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don’t think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Pip quietly nudges the recently returned Canadian and tells him to be careful not to offend the Refugees who brought this thread from there recently shut down forum.
Pip feels sorry that this was all they could salvage along with a moderator

The Conmeister was totally ignorant to the fact that another forum had shut down: He would appreciate a link to this fact.

Many their loss be our gain, however!

Pip points to the above thread as an explanation.
Pip also points out that we have gained many new active members .
Pip wonders how they will be kept in line :twisted: :twisted:

Postby Fluffy » Fri Nov 18, 2011 5:29 pm

Fluffy pops back in to say, "WOOT!" and other noisy expressions of support and encouragement for Joanne. She wonders how in the world Joanne can fit all those activities with her very active social life.

She tells Aunty she, too, is a little worried about the 70s color scheme. She had really hoped to see the last of it by 1983. She would like to make some tea-cozy-shaped slipcovers for the beanbag chairs to support the traditional Food And Drink (Especially Chocolate) Theme. She says since it is Friday she will be glad to make some of her chocolate martinis and cupcakes in assorted flavors. She just needs a head count.

She is so happy to see Will of Lancre! She thinks this move might be A Very Good Thing for the Harper-Collins Boardies, since activity there has diminished in the last three years. She is looking forward to catching up with some of the Pratchett fans who did not move to F*c*b**k. That looks quite naughty when the vowels are removed, she notices.

And Fluffy is not at all surprised that Toothy has been promoted to Moderator. Toothy is actually a good and conscientious moderator, in contrast to Fluffy.

Fluffy bunks off for the moment as she has a poorly daughter; yes, that would be Young Binky, who is now 17. Binks was a Boardie during 2006/7 when she was just a wee lassie. Binky is doing fine at the moment - she was just feeling pretty rotten in the a.m.
"Repent? Me? Cheek! I can't start repenting at my time of life. I'd never get any work done. Anyway," she added, "I ain't sorry for most of it."

:D

She wants thank everyone again for all the noise and congratulations :)
Joanne and friends are going out for a few social ones to celebrate her friends birthday and getting a job. She must restrain herself as she has work in the morning :roll:

Joanne is in agreement that her being a woman she will be able to juggle everything and find time to keep some sort of a social life.

(((Helen)))) Joanne knows she must annoy the life out of some of the boardies as her spelling/gramma is not too good and her third person skills are just as bad :oops:

Joanne jumped straight to Fluffy's post and straight to where she thought Fluffy was swearing... She thinks f*c*b**k looks better this way :)

Joanne hopes she will be able to remember all the new peoples names as her memory is terrible, especially when it somes to names but she does remember someone had just came back from Italy and she hopes a fabulous time was had.

Docandie waves "Howdy" to all the folks she knows from the "other" forum and thanks those who emailed her privately to let her know this change was upon us.
She has been a bit busy lately with various projects - the holiday cooking binge has begun and she is trying out some new techniques for creating candied fruits as well as resurrecting some ancient techniques for comfits and sweets of the renaissance. The latter is a teaching project for two young people who are involved in the SCA. (Society for Creative Anachronism)

Jules rushes in because she wants to be first in the line waiting for chocolate martinis. She gets a bit distracted by docandie's cooking. When docandie doesn't look Jules licks all the spoons in the kitchen! :D

Jules looooves Fluffy's new spelling of f*c*b**k! :D She's not a big fan of f*c*b**k, because a) it is scary and b) it steals her friends.
Jules would like to vow that henceforth she will only call it f*c*b**k, but fears that's not possible, because she sometimes discusses f*c*b**k with her students. She assumes that though the students would appreciate the new name, the parents wouldn't. Pfffff! :roll:

((((((Docandie!)))))) Hurrah! Great to see you join us here. And a belated but heartfelt thank you for the lovely Halloween card you sent me a few weeks ago. I meant to email you to say thanks but RL kept getting in the way. :(

Toothy is stunned at the pace of movement on this board! It reminds her of the heady days when she first joined HC and everyone was posting at a rate of knots! It was so sad to see things slow down as everyone migrated over to F*c*b**k... She hopes this vibrant environment will entice peeps back and more often. :)
