Title: hello, again...
Post by: Alkarii on November 08, 2013, 08:16:05 PM
Damn, it's been a while.  I'm sure there's a few who remember me from several years ago.

For those that do, I should be getting internet in a few weeks.  Also, My computer is almost finished, and I can get back to writing my book.  I got a new job a couple months ago, but it's part time, so if I don't have internet soon, it might be because I'll be getting a car.

Welcome Back!

*Steps back and concentrates, then the incantation "Summon thee O' Altermeta greeters, bring forth the popped corn, the pastry platter and the nibbler selection. Come forth with the plushie cart and the balloon wagon, release the hugger BUT NOT the Kraken!" to a short roll of thunder and just enough lightning to charge the laptop batteries.

*stumbles in with a zombie-like gait, pushing a force-field protected cart of Altermeta Plushies to be handed out as welcome gifts, including CC, Jo, Boo, Pirate!T & Agnes, and Rum-Wench!Sasha, then collapses in an emotionally drained heap on the floor* Eeeerrrrgh...

*sneaks off with the plushie cart while Rich lays in a heap. Returns with two bags of popcorn: one a 30 gallon bag, the other the size of a small Buick. Proceeds to empty the larger bag onto Rich while handing the the smaller bag to Alkarii.*

Welcome back! :D

LET THE MAYHEM COMMENCE!!!

Welcome back to this corner of the internet!

Be warned: Any food left unattended will be devoured by shadowy forum lurkers.

Welcome back!

*offers Alkarii some pastry of his choice*

If someone*cough* Dreaker *cough* tries to steal your food; just brighten up his world with a flashlight. He doesn't like that :)

Well, it would appear I missed the dramatic welcome wagon. Still I hope you'll accept my humble rewelcome as I'm sure you were welcomed at some point in the past  :D

Watch out. I still need to fix that hole where the feral sandwich escaped...
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Lisbon Virgo on November 11, 2013, 09:26:36 PM
How in the hell did that feral pb&j get a hold of one of my portable holes?
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: MeepSire on November 12, 2013, 04:09:17 AM
I think that's the hole that Dreaker keeps using to run off with the plushies...
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Liram on November 12, 2013, 05:32:15 AM
I didn't know the holes were reusable! Good God, and all these years I've been buying a new one everytime I needed to dispose of evidence.
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: MeepSire on November 12, 2013, 06:27:51 AM
On the bright side, we have enough holes to play Portal through posts! Though those plushies are going to need more than a plexiglass box...
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Lisbon Virgo on November 12, 2013, 08:54:05 AM
Rich put the plushies inside a portable hole proof force field. I'm studying it to see how to overcome this minor annoyance.
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Dreaker on November 12, 2013, 07:15:29 PM
I need no silly holes to got from one place to another.

Oh yeah that's right, you use that forum mist to lurk and sneak around... That explains the fog machines in the supply closet...

*sneaks in through a portable hole and retrieves his plushie cart and takes it back to his own lair* Good luck with that.

Have you tried switching it off?
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Lisbon Virgo on November 13, 2013, 08:23:04 AM
It's remote controlled as far as I can tell, and I didn't see the remote on Rich. Of course, he was buried under popcorn at the time.
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Risha Kalsyhan on November 13, 2013, 07:50:52 PM
Luckily I was hungry. And yes it is remote controlled. *shows him the remote, holding it just out of reach*

Post by: MeepSire on November 14, 2013, 05:28:56 AM
Is that a chrome remote?
*pulls out a soda can*
Well at least someone wants to keep the plushies safe...
*begins to open can*
Gah-!
*can sprays everywhere including the remote*
Hey who shook my soda?! And where's the force field...

Crap, there go the lights. I think we blew a fuse... or tripped a breaker or whatever it is the kids say these days.

Uhm... can't see so well in the dark. Where'd the new guy go?

Welcome, wherever you are!

I may have home internet access in early December.  I'm thinking about getting a laptop for net use and gaming (most of my games are old), that way I can put Linux on the computer I'm building.  It's for writing, and I may get into video editing or something else to justify building a computer.

Lucky I keep a few spare Isolinear Crystals on my person. *dries off the remote changes out the crystal, then pushes a few buttons. The Force field immediately turns back on, trapping Lisbon and Dreaker by their wrists just out of reach of the plushies*

Your pathetic technology can not hold me. Like the knight on the chess board I play by different rules. *simply fades away*
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Risha Kalsyhan on November 14, 2013, 09:09:46 PM
Well, That leaves Lisbon. Just hang in there while I change the fuse. *heads to the Utility Room*
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Lisbon Virgo on November 14, 2013, 09:54:33 PM
*finds he can't move and the room is dark*

Um... a little help here?
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Risha Kalsyhan on November 14, 2013, 09:59:58 PM
*lights suddenly come back on*

*returns from the utility room*

Just hang in there, Liz.

*turns the force field off, and pulls Lisbon away by his collar then turns it back on as soon as he's clear of the cart*

*pokes head out of the plushie pile in the cart*
Hey Rich, I found a kitten in the pile!
*holds out a cute grey striped kitten*
Awww... It looks kinda like Boo...
*looks around*
Ah, my special armband must have gotten wet and teleported me here. Darn prototype...
*looks at watch*
*puts kitten at the edge of the field and begins to sink back into the plushie pile*
Save the kitten, it's too late for me!
*falls asleep in the plushie pile*
Title: Re: hello, again...
Post by: Risha Kalsyhan on November 15, 2013, 06:17:56 PM
*rescues both the kitten and Meep from the plushies and then leaves, accidentally leaving a few behind on the floor*

Ooh! That CC plushie is MINE!!!

We really ought to put some back up generators on the forum in case of catastrophic power failure. Can't have the plushes unprotected, not that the forcefield ever stops anyone, but still it's the principle of the matter.
