Linton Robinson from Nowhere. I'm an expat and army brat is reading A computer scren February 18, 2012 - 8:25pm

Actually, this one looks a LOT better than most I've seen.  Here I am.  I still can't figure out what you're supposed to say in these things.  If anybody has ideas on that, let me know.  Maybe I can say them.

I live in Mexico.

I've been writing for a living so long it barely even bothers me any more.

I have a whole lot of weird side jobs like writers put on their dust jackets.  But I don't.

I like swimming in caves underwater, but think air tanks are for wimps.

I like living in the third world because you don't need to own a car.

I like younger women... another plus for the third world.

I like weapons and explosives and kayaks and bicycles and drugs and jazz and rock music.

I like you, so far.  See how it goes.

We are a very open and honest writing community.

We are very sarcastic.

We like younger women too.

We think you sound like a badass whith the swimming in caves thing.

We like Mexico and tamales.

We like good, challenging writing and writing competitions.

Sincerely Yours,

The Litreactors.

Linton, Dave will be along shortly to greet you properly.  Until then, I'll have to do. 

Hi, there! 

Watch out for what alien was just saying.  This is normally a segue to him asking you for photos.

Hey Linton. I feel like we are already close friends.

I am the site sociopath according to Bekanator, which it is probably already clear to you as I have already friended you on FB and sent some nude photos of Utah for your enjoyment.

Cars are overrated. My mom lives in a cave on the Big Island.

Young women are great but older women are hornier.

When can we come visit?

This site is fucking better.

edit: Can you hand me some drugs through the screen?

I hope the nudes do it for you.  I tell Chester to charge for that stuff, but he keeps handing them out for free and promising me that he has a solid business plan and to just trust him.  So I'm trying, but I haven't seen a lot of return yet.

Welcome!

I live very close to Canada.

I've been writing so many progress notes for a behavioral health network, the DSM-V will include a disorder named for me.

I have a whole lot of weird side jobs of which no income needs to be declared on my income taxes.

Tell Carlos Slim that everything's cool - we're cool - be cool.

I'm always half-joking, yet half-serious too.

I like you, so far.  See how it goes.

@Matt: No way, that totally looks like Linton. Those are fucking hilarious. "He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels," and "His beard alone has experienced more than a lesser man's entire body!"

Oh, and this:

Lit Reactor...Linton Robinson.

No getting out now LR.

He's been gone for weeks sweetness. I just resurrected the thread as a vigil. A single candle burning in the darkness of the lit. Also, Panda wrote a story about him. It won last months flash fiction.

Side note: I think I may go to Bass Pro Shops after work. That would be awesome. I'll be like, "Aww yeah"

@Matt,  I had a Bass Pro near me when I lived in San Antonio.  Now I've got Cabela's 10 minutes away.  Good trade.

Matt Attack's picture
Matt Attack from Richmond, Va. is reading As I Lay Dying, William Faulkner March 19, 2012 - 9:11am

Does Cabelas have that giant aquarium filled with trophy fish like BPS? I think they're both great places....I am glad that there is one in Richmond, otherwise I'd be pissed when I finally move in May. Seriously when the zombie apocalypse begins (and it will) that is where I am heading first. 

Dave's picture
Dave from a city near you is reading constantly March 19, 2012 - 9:27am

There's an aquarium, I don't know about the trophy fish.  In Buda, they have a massive mock up of a mountain with dozens of wild game stuffed and mounted in various poses.  It's pretty cool, the kids dig it.

Matt Attack's picture
Matt Attack from Richmond, Va. is reading As I Lay Dying, William Faulkner March 19, 2012 - 9:30am

Yeah, they have the same thing at the BPS here....even a rock climbing wall and such....its a really fun place. Every time I bring a date I tell them to buy me a boat or I am dumping them.....sadly it hasn't happened yet. The shooting range is nice too.

LOL @ Dave, I am as well. I took a girl to Ikea once....that was it....it was one the best dates I ever had. We ended daring each other to do stuff like, jump on the beds or move the paintings...get on the intercomm...being creative is a lot better than dumping a lot of money and being bored and awkward.

I'm commenting a bit late here, but anyways....

I'm writing horror now...i'm stuck in the middle of a short story that's just not moving...shit is coming out at least.  Looking at revising old stories but want to write new stuff too...got back from a writers conference in Baltimore late January with a stack of critiques to look at for my novel about killer babies.

I've published shorts in non-paying pubs...but really want to break into a paying pub soon.  : )

 

I've been with the same employer for over 20 years now...I like stabilility..but I like my stories to be fucked up.

I love animals...have 5 cats and 1 dog.

I like horror movies and scarey stories.

I'm a yuppy in the sense that I don't feel like I could live without my Siruis XM radio. 

I'm engaged to another guy and we marinade food and grill a lot now.  Excited about getting married!!

I'm in a much better mood that spring has sprung and I can get out and walk with my dog.
