@manda_lynn Sorry - wasn't trying to be mysterious - I am just an antisocial git when it comes down to it. I have just posted on the New People and I'm Alive threads to give some sort of intro since that is the Nice Thing To Do.

I heard that we had a few ringers in here, but I pushed it off as just talk. Then I started to look a few of you up and...we have ringers.

I have a feeling which way I'm going.

Waa really?! No warrior fans? Really?! Good job Nick.

Jumblies. It's Jumblies right? I'm too hung-over to confirm. Jublies, perhaps? No. Yeah...jumblies. Awesome.

@Nick W:  love the clip.  Flashback.  I like that.

@Diaz:  My old man has a bunch of pictures like yours.  I'm not worried about him out-writing me, either.  On the other side of talking shit (the non-shit-talking side), good shit on whatever your breakthrough was.  I look forward to seeing what you bring this round.  As long as you bring the thunda, muthafucka!

Also for you, Covewriter:

48 As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him.

49 Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.

50 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.

51 David ran and stood over him. He took hold of the Philistine’s sword and drew it from the sheath. After he killed him, he cut off his head with the sword.

I Samuel 17:48-51

Well thank you Wicked, but sadly I no longer write for LitReactor. And I would have to be paired with someone who I just friended on the site. :P

I would scout out the competition, but I'm too lazy to do so. There's no knowing what the prompt might be, so that's a variable right there that can't be accounted for. I'm gonna do what I'm gonna do and it will win or it won't.

Avery. Don't even think about relegating the jumblies to a dark closet.

Bill is scary enough without coffee. Bill+Coffee=hyperhorror.

Dakota, the nutrisweet is to be rubbed as an stimulating emollient onto your brainflakes.

Thank God (My other God is an atheist) I don't have to go looking for a War avatar.

Attention all: I just noticed something I thought I should point out:

Guer, is a prefix meaning War. For example, La Guerre, the French term for war. Guernica, well, we all know what that is. But what the fuck is a Guer-lain?

Why should fear seize the limbs before the trumpet sounds?

@Bill: I work doubles at my bar.

 

Nice euphemism. I'll have to remember that one when my wife asks where I was and why my breath smells of odiferous Effen Vodka. 'Oh honey, you know I work doubles at the bar on Mondays and Wednesdays."

 

And that right there, folks is why you should be afraid of Americantypo. A way with words that boy has, a way with words.

Avery would you please put those lovely jumblies back up? No matter how hard I try there's simply no room to put your luscious orbs on Han's chest. I mean I really tried but I couldn't. I got so pissed I threw my goat urine into the air conditioner. Totally ruined my morning.

Come on, do a pal a favor and back me up here.

No slots have changed since I posted them the night before last.  Nobody has dropped since Renee, what, four days or so ago.  The only ones I'm concerned about are the ones I haven't heard from.  There are four people who have yet to confirm (and if you are one and you're reading this, it would be awesome if you confirm with me!):

Nighty Nite

David Shepherd

Boone Spaulding

Michael Thomas

They are not yet in danger of being removed.  I'd just like to hear from them and know they still plan on coming in guns up.
