    Key lime pie is my kryptonite. (The fact that it happens to be green is mere coincidence.)

    The RPF typically locks the social thread and starts a new one at 10,000. Maybe we can do the same? [face_thinking]

    It's super-expensive in Key West, so if you go there remember to bring your own.

    10,000 posts and most involve cats, food, lousy weather and bridezilla. :p

    Yes, it is tradition that new threads start after the previous one hits 10,000 posts. In the past the thread has been locked and there isn't a social thread for a day or two, but I thought I'd leave this one open until the new one is opened, which will be sooner rather than later. :)

    I guess the spam train has to eventually arrive at some sort of destination, if only to deliver its vast cargo of hashed corn beef. ;)

    Trak, are you trying to turn yourself into a Twi'lek a bruise at a time? ;)

    Yes. Working on the upper limbs currently.

    Unfortunately, my foot isn't bruised as much, so this plan might not work as well as I thought.

    Golly, I'm away for half a day and suddenly there's talk of the thread closing down because we're at 10,000+ posts. :eek: Well, here's my attempt to sneak in under the wire, in which I'll try to cover the four main topics mentoned above by Jedi_Lover:

    Cats: I'm at my mother's in Chicago, and she has one. The little guy is of course enthralled with her, and he started following her around as soon as he came in the door. Fortunately she's got a very friendly disposition.

    Food: Well, folks were talking about dessert a little ways up, so... I personally love just about anything with ice cream, particularly floats and sodas and the like. One café near where I grew up had an absolutely divine float with very dark chocolate ice cream, soda water, almond (orgeat) syrup, and handmade whipped cream, though for a while they couldn't get almond syrup and had to use hazelnut instead (it was still A1, though). I too never really got into ice cream bars for some reason, though.

    Lousy weather: Well, I guess conditions have been at least slightly lousy for the plants, since it's been rather dry. But for us humans it's been very pleasant and sunny.

    Bridezillas: I'm going to my cousin's wedding in West Virginia this weekend, so that covers the "bride" end of things. I honestly can't comment on the "zilla" part, since I haven't really been in touch with her for a while beyond occasional Facebook pings, but I guess the fact that she's doing the "destination wedding" thing at some out-in-the-boonies resort in the middle of the Appalachians counts as "zilla." (Particularly give that she's from Seattle. I think her fiancé might be from WV, though.)

    OK, I think that's covered all the usual topics, so Mav and Bri, feel free to lock the thread now! ;)

    Well, started it, but it's locked. Guess us regular folk ain't allowed to start social threads...

    I never had Choco-Tacos. The one time I tried to get one, they were sold out!

    Yeah, sorry. I've been a mod for... wow, 5 years (had to look it up to make sure, can't believe it's been that long) and never gotten to start the fanfic social thread, so yeah, I'm going to do it. That's kinda what I was trying to say with my previous post without being obnoxious about it, guess I should have been more clear. Sorry about that. :)

    The new one will be open soon, just reviewing some rules.

    Not...not rules!

    Anything but rules! They take all the fun out of the spam train!

    :D
