I came in through a detour - 9622.net. To tell the truth, I'm not really sure how I got to 9622. I may have been Googling "Monkeys Portuguese authors and undertakers." Anyway, I got to know and love ColdChef, Kafkaesque, YHBC, jpoulos, vidiot, cowboy sally, witchstone, adampsyche, jonmc, dong resin, brittney, stavrosthewonderchicken, uncle fes, of course Miguel, and a bunch of other wonderful people. The day the $5 newbies were allowed in, why, it was like I'd always been here.
It kind of cheapens the whole Tizzie experience, you know?
What the Commish said! And every time the community reaches out - during 9/11, Katrina, the Bali bombing, and happier times, like Mefi 10. And when I learn something amazing that I can subsequently show off to impress people? Bonus!
