Greetings (again again)
« on: November 18, 2013, 10:49:26 PM »
I don't know how many times I have done this. I go through these phases where I get super busy and distracted and keep going "yeah I should check back here" but then "oh shiny nickle" moments happen.
I think I will probably spend time re-reading the comic and get myself up to speed.
It's amazing to see how far things have come and who is still here from "back in the day". This is a place I will never forget that's for sure.
Where do you go to hide, when you are running away from yourself?

Well welcome back again! (again)

I'm out of loose confetti right now, so take some of these cascarones in case you need to fend off anybody with eggshell confetti grenades. ^.=.^

*Wheels in a cart of plushies protected by a portable-hole-proof force field* Welcome back to the forum! As a welcome gift, I offer you an Altermeta Plushie! You can choose from CC, Jo, Boo, Pirate!T-Square and Agnes, and Rum-Wench!Sasha. Enjoy!
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

*The mad hugger gives you a hug* then almost collides with the pastry cart while leaving.

Welcome back, good to see you :D

Thanks to Russ for the sig!

Welcome back to this corner of the internet!

Be warned: Any food left unattended will be devoured by shadowy forum lurkers.
*returns to the shadows stealing Boo plushies*
Secret activity in process. Please look elsewhere.

You must have handed me at least a dozen of those things over the years XD!
This place has never failed to make me feel welcome.

I think back in the day constitutes something that happened, at the most recent, in the 80s... which Altermeta is... my point ceases to make sense even to me. Welcome back, I miss seeing that funky avatar pop up.

*walks up to Geradex and hands him a bag of popcorn*

That's a bag of welcome popcorn, and it the latest model! I've been working with Acme to come up with a bottomless popcorn bag, and we succeeded! Once you reach the first bag bottom, you can reach in further and pull out whatever kind of freshly popped popcorn you want. Just be careful. It'll be hot! I'm thinking of calling this a Popcornicopia Of Plenty. :)

Also, be warned. Intro threads can be hotbeds for mayhem.
Usually started by me. :)

Now then, where did the plushie cart go?
Risha and Jay Chan? Yeah, I ship'em.

Welcome back!

*Offers Geradex some welcome pastry of his choice*

Gives +2 to weight, so you might as well just stay (instead of flying away with all those balloons).

Funny how most forum signatures aren't actually signatures, but instead are some witty comment.
Except Balding, that cheeky bugger.

*gasp* Oh, Noes! My force-field generator's malfunctioning! We need to get those plushies out of there  fast before they're crushed! Somebody HELP!
