A Conversation for LIL'S ATELIER

109Xth Conversation at Lil's

Asteroid Lil - Offstage Presence

Welcome to Lil's Atelier, 2014 Edition! First, welcome to newcomers. Our forum page is at A304354; please take a few minutes to learn about the atelier, about netiquette, about Continuity and about how to properly address our bots. And to stay out of the linen closet. New policy regarding offsite links: We're all very fond of sharing our net discoveries with other salonistas, but -- and this is to be sitewide policy -- we have a couple of requests to make of you. First, no more enigmatic links. By that I mean, describe what you're linking to. Particularly, warn us if it's music, or if it's loud, or if it is unsuitable for an office environment. No more "Hey, look at this!" Secondly, if you find an interesting image, please give us the image in the context of its page. In other words, link to the page, not just the image in it. This is netiquette. Exceptions: the image is on your own website. Or it's a Youtube or Vimeo video. Huffpost and others sometimes embed Youtube videos, and if that's what you want us to see, you can actually do us a favor by giving us the speedier link straight to Youtube. The last conversation began on 10 September 2012, nearly 15 months ago. I will have a few things to say about it, but first we must publish the Rolls. We give prizes to the entity who posts first to the new conversation and honor the other 18 who make it to the first LED, so please refrain from posting twice until after post #20. 1st LED Roll of Honor *1.

Curly Black Wig 3398 Traditionally, the atelier awards a pair of blue mohair sock-pants to the regular salonista who is last to the forum. Or rather, THE pair; but we do launder them, never fear. http://www.lilatladera.com/h2g2/lasttoforum.htm . We don't include sockpuppets or new salonistas or seriously infrequent posters, so this time the winner is.... ... nbb! Welcome to some new salonistas -- in no particular order, we gained nosebagbear, SashaQ, Florida Sailor, morseman, SiliconDiOxide, Gingersnapper, Freewayriding and pebblederook in the course of the thread. 2013 was the annus horribilis of your hostess, and my preoccupation with my personal travails led to a certain amount of neglect in the day-to-day life of this atelier. 2014 will be better. But the high point in my year consisted of the visit to Albuquerque of Pastey and Lesley, who got to witness first-hand my congenial living derangements. Lesley rode western for the first time and I brought them together with a good friend and his family for an evening at the local Chili's. And we talked a whole lot. And Irv came to see me later in the summer, for just a few hours. There was a stupendous amount of traveling, actually. Z went to Australia. Pastey went to Austria as well as America. Marv went to Egypt. Santra went everywhere. Milla went to Hawaii. Egon went to Georgie (US). Li

Metal Chicken

Happy New Year everyone! I resolve to be more active around here for 2014. Well, I resolve to TRY to be more active at least, not limit myself to regular lurking.

pebblederook-The old guy wearing surfer beads- what does he think he looks like?

Groans weakly, orders up a bottle of champagne on ice, removes bottle, and sticks head in bucket.

'Horge tendry sags fooya n me'

If you microwave that on defrost, it translates as "Hope 2014 is as good for you as it will be for me." Unless you are Centralian in which case it is extremely impolite and I apologise.

Amy Pawloski, aka 'paper lady'--'Mufflewhump'?!? click here to find out... (ACE)

Wow, and I thought a lot happened during the course of a normal-length salon thread! Of course, having significant milestones happen during the course of an extra-long thread may have something to do with it...

Good Doctor Zomnker (This must be Tuesday," said GDZ to himself, sinking low over his Dr. Pepper, "I never could get the hang of Tuesdays.")

Happy New Year all! Great summation Lil!

I wish I'd had an opportunity to proofread the entry for wrongly typed smileys and such, but I got a captcha on the preview and that rattled me. Especially when I got a second captcha when I hit post.

The time to use captcha is when someone registers. Thereafter they are an intrusion and a sabotage. Has anyone else here experienced them here on h2g2?

This closes the first LED and the first day of 2014.
