Awesome ... haven't had a good sponge bath since before I was married !

{cue Barry White music}

Kidding. :lol:

Getting serious for a moment, I'll be lurking for a few days, before deciding whether or not to stick around ... so far, this community seems a LOT quieter than I was hoping/expecting. I'm a 5-10 post per day kinda guy, and that seems to be more than the rest of the fora combined ATM. :-/

Hi RP

Things have been a bit quieter around here lately, since three of our members recently passed over to the Beer Volcano. Personally I have recently started a second job, which when coupled with my original full time position and my non-job job at home taking care of the menagerie (25 or so years of animal rescue activities has resulted in an abnormally large accumulation of beasties) leaves me without much active-brain-cell time available for posting in the various forums I frequent. But I'm not ready to cash out yet, and you'll see me a few times a week at least. Hope you decide to stick around; we could use the new blood. (And not just for sacrificial purposes, either.)

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Thanks for the welcome, ET.

Animal rescue is a noble profession. :-)

Even some of the fish long thought belly-up still come 'round once in a while. This joint is too inneresting to let go completely to seed.

Good to see you again, Dukes. When's your next book due out? I've been editing my niece's novel for the last month or so, a fantasy/mystery for young adults. Not my usual editing fodder, but I always enjoy a challenge.

New convert here.

Been following FSM for about a year, recently had an epiphany of sorts, felt it was time to make the plunge into the pot of salted boiling water.

I just found out about this fabulous group, and would love to join. My grave concern is that I am on a strict low carb diet. Will the Flying Spaghetti Monster still embrace me as a Chosen One?

Having given myself to his noodliness he immediately spake to me and commanded me to establish a breakaway sect with many nubile acolytes.
So this is hello and goodbye really.
Any pastafarians desiring to serve as such nubile acolytes are encouraged to convey an image.
It should be noted that in his infinite and mysterious wisdom his noodliness hath decreed that prospective acolytes shall not be overly cast in his image.
