Posted May 6, 2010 by Asteroid Lil -- Community Editor, Community Artist
|Welcome to the Atelier, now celebrating its TENTH year of continuous conversation! Our forum page is at A304354, if you haven't been here before, worth checking out. On May 12 we will be having a grand party: watch for the new thread.|
And without further ado, here's a reprise of 9FX:
First LED Roll of Honor
Camaris, a cat (new)
Sulking is Easy
Rosemary - welcome back!
Ottox 1729 - Last to the Forum and winner of the blue mohair pants
Best bon mot: from Agapanthus (491), "...the Renaissance was when Europe Went Totally Retro And Greek Was The New Black."
And d'E right after: "Alternate career path for a pope? Infallibility definitely has its uses - I think proofreader, fact checker or quality-assurance testing would be ideal."
Most informative post: MR on priestly celibacy and history (503)
Best non sequitur: Post 726.
Best retrieval of obscure trivia was by Teuchter (1855).
There were simply too many Youtube song videos to mention, in accord with one of our conversational topics. Scan through the 200-300's to find them.
An odd site that captions photos of house interiors:
extreme house makeovers:
A quiz! this is for your Autism Quotient:
The Nimrod is dead: long live the Nimrod!:
The Sistine Chapel virtual tour:
What stormtroopers do on their day off:
ash plume as ragnorok:
The Blak Kitteh (now Camaris):
Scary shoes (a sample):
How to say that Volcano:
The Lying Down Game:
As the conversation opened and salonistas found comfortable places, the meltmeltmeltmelt project was soon resumed for the Scandinavians and Hibernians. Count Spracula was able to revert to Bluebottleness early on. Mr. Dreadful was stabbed to death in LARP World and later revealed to be co-starring in a Regency novel, as a zombie. Football frenzy swept the salon, followed by a plume of Icelandic ash, and Sporky finally rejoined us as Sulking is Easy. Europeans commented in hushed tones on the clarity of the sky and the absence of contrail-induced clouds while the skies were clear of jets.
Topics of Note
the benefits of meaningful conversation
Girl With the Dragon tattoo - movie
songs that make one weepy/happy
a tax on cider
crisi management with employees and children
the Catholic Church and the scandal
Easter dinner and eating rabbit (no, coney)
watching the space shuttle
the new Who
suicide and its effects on the relicts
the scariness of debt
the welfare state
tell-tale signs of Mad Cat Woman Syndrome
memorable aircraft sightings and airshows
And so here we are once again, milling around in the foyer as the bots finish cleaning the salon and refilling the samovar. Two hundred and fifty-five conversations have flowed under the bridge: let's celebrate as we celebrate the 256th. Please make yourselves at home!
