I write garbage.

Well, you have impeccable taste in movies and books, so you're ahead of 99% of the riff-raff in here. Welcome to the Monkey House!
And you have impeccable taste in beards. I never could tell if I was mentally ahead of people, or mentally behind. My aunt always told me I was 'special' with no clarification toward the negative or positive. Then came Jeffrey!
Thank you for sorting that out for me, and thank you for the welcome.
:] <<< Have this emoticon.
I was honestly hoping for more depth. But ya know. You get what you pay for and all that.
And you paid for nothing, so you get nothing, right?
The depth is in the dissection.
Hey and welcome. You lack a beard, but you have a gun, so I think that evens out pretty nicely.
Looking forward to reading some of your gritty and terrible writing.
No intro from Chris? I AM NOT WELCOMING!
Michael, it's not a picture of me. It's a picture of Robert de Niro playing Travis Bickle--a depressed, Byronic ex-Marine packing a gun. He says, "You talkin' to me?"
And, Matt, I didn't take you for a follower! I want my meme!
I'm big time. No memes until I get my intro!
Sorry for the delay. On days when I don't have work I'm most likely drunk and therefore only check Lit once, maybe twice in a 24 hour span.
First I would like to thank you for opening up as you did. Being the new person in a group of strong personalities is tough and to bare your soul as you have takes a level of bravery we don't often acknowledge. Even though you can't see it a am very literally raising my glass to you right now (This also means I am drinking before 9am, happy birthday 'merica").
You have come at an exciting time at this site. The fist open writing activity "Scare Us" is underway. People are starting e-zines and podcast, there really is more to get involved with everyday. My suggestion, on your first day here kick someone's ass or become someone's bitch, life gets easier after that.
Once you have settled in you will get a picture from Matt. This picture will brighten your day while warming the cockles (sp?) of your heart. Little known fact, if you do enough peyote before looking at Matt's picture you will instantly discover your spirit animal, so you have that going for you.
Then Avery will be by with the official Litreactor welcome. She is filling in on this job and hates doing it so make sure to say thank you. I am also required to tell you that by Avery giving you your welcome you are required to side with her in all future debates, welcome to the hive mind.
Last but certainly not least, dick pics from Howie. You heard me, all the glorious pictures of Howie's johnson you can handle. You want a profile shot of it, done. You want an action shot, just ask. You want to know if he'll put a little hat on it, you bet your ass he will. You're welcome.

Welcome. You're approved. Enjoy your spirit animal.
Thank you, Avery and Matt.
I appreciate your appreciation.
Now that you have received all your official greetings, you have become (if you were not already) the greatest writer in the world. Congratulations!
Avery, I appreciate that you appreciate my appreciation. Don't appreciate that, though, because this whole 'appreciation' thing could turn into a really messy--but really appreciative--circle of appreciation. And we all know how those go. All that crying, hugging, and rubbing snot on each other just doesn't do it for me.
Utah, I think you just imbibed me with the courage I was looking for.
I'm appreciative that you want to avoid a circle of appreciation. Wait, did I just create one? Oppsie.
Hi little friend
Dwayne: I refuse to reciprocate.
Stacy: Thanks for the welcome.
nunchuck ping-pong > anything
What they don't tell you is that it's actually easier with the nunchucks.
