    Hello people. I am leaving for London, England August 14th. I may have internet, but even if I do, I won’t be on much. I’ll be going green tomorrow night and I shall return to my duties August 22nd. I am leaving you in hands more capable than mine, but still, don’t wreck the place.

    Have fun, Bri!

    Hello people. AS SOME of you guys may know, (LONG STORY SHORT) my university profs went on strike, but now we are back in class, the uni administration is being giant butts and not extending the semester, so now I have 3.5 weeks to do a whole lot of work. Needless to say, I am going green now and I'll probably remain green until around April 8th in hopes I can get my butt in gear and get a lot of said work done before Mav goes away for some stuff. If for some odd reason I'm still not done most of my stuff, we may bring in one of the other mods as a temp mod, but I'm hoping it won't come to that.

    I'll still be around from time to time, but generally I won't be on for long/have time. So, please be patient with requests to host threads/challenges and other stuff. If it isn't urgent, maybe wait off for a bit. I know we asked a bunch of people to wait until after the rewards before giving them decisions. I am so sorry. My entire life has kinda been thrown up in the air with this strike. Mav and I will try to get to you during the odd time that I'm on, but please understand DRL is just swamping me right now.

    Finally, if all chaos breaks out, I can come back, but I'll be REALLY CRANKY. And well, then you guys will know why they gave me the title "Grand Moff Darth Fanfic Mod".

    Just a quick update from the land of the papers. I am no longer green. Even though I still have 2 more papers to write, they are not due for a bit, so I'm not a too much of a panicked mess. I have more time to devote to here.

    However, since I'm still kinda busy, so decisions and other mod-ly stuff may not be as quick as they normally are.

    Good to see you back, in good spirits, & in the usual colors. :) I'd been wondering what the color change meant—that you're less available than usual, I guess? (Is it different from the green letters in that list of mods on the front page? Sorry, newbie question.)

    Yeah. When a mod's colours are green (not on the Staff Online list - they are always green there - but underneath their icon/avatar) it means that they are away or on reduced time, meaning not to expect a reply any time soon.

    Hey. Just a quick FYI. Many of you know I'm leaving on a rather last-minute road trip for a bachelorette party tomorrow (Friday). Normally I wouldn't go green/announce here for a weekend trip, but given that I will have (probably) no access to the internet until late Monday, possibly even Tuesday, I just wanted to let everyone know: don't expect a reply from me for anything. Please go to Mav or one of the other moderators if you have issues.
    Thanks!

    *Counts bail money* If it's going to be needed for anything it'll be for a bachelorette party. :p

    Have fun and don't do anything that I wouldn't do! :)

    I NEED A VACATION!

    I kid, I kid. My mother and I are taking advantage of the long weekend here and the fact that I am a slacker with no classes, and we will be traveling to visit my sister. I won't have my laptop so the amount of time I will be on is kinda unknown. I'll be going green Thursday evening, and I probably wont be back till Tuesday.

    Hey guys. So like last year I'm going camping for a week where internet is non-existent and cell-service is patchy (at best. So I'm going green tomorrow night (I also have to Frankenstein my wheelchair tomorrow, so I'm likely not going to be on much tomorrow anyways) and likely won't be back until May 7th.

    So be good for Mav, don't let the Awards get too out of hand and yadda yadda.

    I would complain that she's leaving me during the awards, but since I did it to her, I guess I can't. *pouts*
    :p

    Have fun Bri!! I guess since it's a Bible camp, I don't need to get the bail money ready??

    You do not get to complain AT ALL!

    And ummm... about the bail money. Might want to keep it handy. You clearly don't know the people who I am going with. Last year resulted in my friend and I knocking on a stranger's door, who let us come in and sleep in her basement (said stranger was actually a friend's grandmother and said friend was a few KMs behind us). Year before that (I wasn't there but I've heard the stories) involved a car's brakes catching on fire.

    Though both those incidents were part of the road trip portion, which only people from our campus have to do, WHICH PROBABLY EXPLAINS EVERYTHING. So, yeah, the actual bible camp part is fiiiine.

    I had Girl's Camp from the ages 12-18, first year we camped on a lake and went canoeing to a sandbar for lunch only to have to scurry back to safety because of thunderstorms, year two we almost got hailed on, year three we went on a canoe trip only to be held back by high wind, year four I think we got rained on but girls aged sixteen go on an overnight campout about three miles away from everyone else and my friend 'Rosie' and I slept under a tarp (it was a sleepless night). I don't remember much from my last two years besides one of the adult leaders having to leave early because of a medical emergency.

    A car's breaks catching fire though takes the cake.

    Be safe Bri.

    As the title suggests, I'm off on a really badly timed vacation to Los Angeles! I'm going green from tomorrow (Sept 23) to October 1st. HOWEVER, since Mav is also away, I'm going to make my best effort to log in at least once every day. So I might not post... but I'll still be around, so no pyro-related antics. If you really need something, PM me.


    ... Now, what did Mav do with the bail money? :p I need some American currency.

    *checks pocket*... 11, 12, 13... Well, I've got 14 cents! What did you guys do with the money in the cookie jar in the secret ModCave? There was nearly USD$18 in there when I stepped down!

    Have fun in L.A. If you end up with a role in Ep X, be sure to let us know. (In code, of course)
