    Happy Birthday Calli

    Happy Birthday Calli I guess your big Three-Oh was enough to get me out of my cave. Enjoy a slice of virtual cake Zero Calories despite appearances. -Thoth

    Happy Birthday Calli

    Thank you M. Callista was last active on the forum Jul 13 2013 05:54 PM (about a month ago) according to her forum page. Like me, she may just be lurking now. Hope you're enjoying the summer. Today was lovely. My very best to you and yours, -Thoth.
  3. Tried it. Thanks. Works just fine. Still looking for cover ideas. -Thoth.
  4. Now I'm getting: 404 Whoah! You broke something! Just kidding! You tried going to http://michellemerton.com/%E2%80%9D, which doesn't exist, so that means I probably broke something. The following is a list of the latest posts from the blog. Maybe it will help you find what you're looking for. But I was still able to access four covers in her portfolio. Thanks for the alert. -Thoth
  5. Orren, I seem to be having trouble with your link. All I get is: Safari can’t open the page “http://michellemerton.com/” because Safari can’t find the server “michellemerton.com”. Still, nice cover. -Thoth
  6. Order placed with Amazon. Book expected Tuesday. Then it goes into my reading queue. Looking forward to the experience. -Thoth
  7. Bravo, kudos, mazel tov Orren. And yes, good cover. Very 1930s art deco. Eye catching. You're a writing machine, OM. -Thoth

    How to make the cursor more visible, e.g. Bold

    Hi Norman. System Preferences > Universal Access > Mouse > Cursor Size Hard to find, I know. -Thoth

    Happy Birthday, Ultimate Poster!

    Brava! Throw in some midnight snuggles and it's just about perfect. Dancing on tabletops is overrated. (They don't make coasters big enough to avoid scuffing.) My brother (who missed the party) is coming over tomorrow (Sunday) for some post-birthday fun. I wonder what he has in mind? -T

    Happy Birthday, Ultimate Poster!

    You're welcome, of course. Indeed. I trust you and Sir Percy enjoyed equal (or perhaps superior) coziness. -T

    Happy Birthday, Ultimate Poster!

    Yep. Them "sundry" can be such a bother. I understand, my shy one. Thank you for the date. Happy Birthday, anyway. Indeed! The bed was crowded but very cozy. -T

    Happy Birthday, Ultimate Poster!

    And I missed it? I notice that you don't post your birthday in Members. Would you like to PM the date to me, my shy EAO? Back to the party (only the die hards and sleep overs are left) -T

    Happy Birthday, Ultimate Poster!

    Thank you Marguerite. Yes, the year has really sped by. I hardly remember any of it — or is that just the price of turning 59? My home is actually full of party guests and well-wishers at the moment and I'm being rude to them. (Moochers!) I will be displaying your beautiful virtual cake on my screen for the next few hours (I clicked Save and dragged it to my Slideshow folder). Then I'm going to gobble it down, saving a nice slice for you. Inappropriately big hugs and my very warmest regards (while tremulously awaiting birthday spanks), -Thoth.

    Hello all

    Crazy busy, TAS. There's no joy in Thothyland lately. But the weather has been nice the last two days. Spring-like, actually. Wish I had time to go out and enjoy it. Hope your "block" has given you the opportunity to stop and smell the Marylander roses. -T

    What are you reading?

    Understood. Personally, I hate reading mindless stuff while I'm in writing mode. I want to be inspired by brilliant prose and deep thoughts. I save the mindless stuff for the throne (if you follow me). "The Complete History of the Batmobile" sounds like fun. I trust there are pictures. Are there specs like (real and fictional) weight, horsepower, top speed, acceleration, etcetera? I remember one comic Batmobile (where Robin was a girl) as being literally a tank. How cool is that? Enjoy. -T

    What are you reading?

    Score one for the good guys. But Orren, What are you reading? As for myself, I just ordered the paperback version of Drift by Rachel Maddow and I am (finally!) finishing up Tenth of December by George Saunders (you'd think it would be a fast read but since each story in it is so self-contained it's hard to get around to picking it up again). -Thoth

    Happy Birthday Fizchick

    Ah. Womb or egg? Fizchick is a mystery wrapped in an enigma covered in minty chocolate. -T

    Howdy!

    Hi. Jools, definitely a 'gelical* cat. M, I don't have a blog. Sorry. Who has the time with all my irons in the fire. But each person gets seven more people in game who each have to get seven more people in the game who each.... (before the 12th level you've exceeded the population of the Earth). Is this some sort of literary pyramid scheme? Is Amway involved? Just kidding. Ladies, the main advantage of virtual chocolate is that it has ZERO calories. -T *With thanks to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, and T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats for the word.

    Howdy!

    Forget the seashells. The world needs more pictures like this. Make 'em drool Juliepoo. -T

    Howdy!

    The shelves are clearing out quickly, what with V Day tomorrow. So, just in case you can't find any, here's some virtual chocolate to sate your cravings. I hope it helps. (Drooling embarrassingly. -T)

    Forum Log In Trouble

    Really? I've always imagined you laid-back and easygoing (informal synonyms for lackadaisical) although I now realize that the term also implies carelessness. So...good catch. So sorry to hear about the suckiness. BTW. Lilith was Adam's first wife (according to the Talmud) but they had to break up: he's human, she's a demon (i.e., fallen angel), how would they raise the kittens? But you're right, this isn't the forum for waxing mythological. Yeah. It started when Steve "upgraded" (sarcastic quotes intended) our 'Zone service, so I figured I wasn't the only one. No biggie. In any event, it's still good to hear from you I trust you're kicking Orren's little ass in Words With Friends. Love the Salvador Dalí quote. -T

    Howdy!

    Hi Jools. Howdy* right back at ya. I like the new avatar. Happy Valentine's Day to you and M. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate. -T *19th century alteration of "how do ye". Who knew?

    Forum Log In Trouble

    We've missed you, Joolsy, but think nothing of it. Life does tend to get in the way of the more important stuff. I trust things are appropriately lackadaisical in the hundred-acre woods? I have the exact same problem: I can't log in from the opening "Forums" page unless I go somewhere else first. I can log in from "Members" and "Calendar" or from "Forums" if I first go elsewhere and then go to "Forums". I get the same three dots. Strangely, I didn't think it was worth mentioning, which, I suppose, shows you where I head is at these days. Happy Valentine's Day. Poke a dead thing for me. -Thoth

    Writing goals tweak

    We all have our own methods. I tend to write at night until my hands cramp up, my eyeballs begin to slip from their sockets and I got nothin' left. Then I fix it the next morning. It works for me. I can do 2000 WPD this way easily but I'm a tweaker and I know I'm going to come back to it again and again, sometimes rewriting the whole thing. Which is why I generally don't bother with a daily word count. -T
