What's up.  I'm brand new and still checking this thing out.  I haven't written very much, but i have a feeling i can do it if i just put in some acutal effort for a change.  So, that's why i came here, to look for some motivation and inspiration.  Feel free to help me out in anyway, or just joke around and/or talk shit.  Thanks.  Peace be to yee.

What's up!  Welcome to LR.  I haven't actually welcomed anyone here in a long while, so I might be a bit rusty.  If I suck at it, please bear with me. 

A guy named Dave will be along shortly with your meme.  Until then, please allow me to extend his hand in friendship.

Bear in mind that the people who try to talk you into sending revealing photos of yourself ("just between us, bro, because that's what friends do, and we're friends, right?") actually all have paysites for that kind of thing and it will not, in fact, be just between you.

The workshop is the shit.  You should definitely use it as much as you can.

Have fun

Mmmm.

Mediocrity.

Tastes like 2012's prodigious youth.

I'm still trying to find my niche, too. I haven't worked up the courage to post or criticize anything in the workshop, yet, so I'm paying nine dollars a month for a subscription to some pretty good reads.

The articles are fantastic and the people and dynamic here are both incredibly entertaining.

I hope you stick around.

I appreciate and strive for mediocrity. It's not that good. It's not that bad. It's just right.

I see the kids have tumbled onto you. Keep your head on a swivel and don't be afraid to say no. It hasn't worked for me but it might for you. Welcome.

wow, that was quite the entertaining welcome.  thanks to you all.  my profile pic is literally the only pic i have of me, so go ahead and post that shit on a pay site for vietnamese transvestites to pleasure themselves to, if you will.  who doesn't like to masturbate to bundt cake?  i've already got some weird shit flowing, so, i'll post something pretty soon, and i'm sure it'll get hacked to pieces, but that'll be fun.

A thousand deaths. What are you like one hundred and eleven cats?

Welcome, dive in. Some people will rip you a new one and then help you sew it back together. Others will rip you a new one and then laugh when you dump out of two holes at the same time.

Enjoy.
