    Welcome Summer in the Fan Fiction Writers' Resource!

    To celebrate the change in the seasons (and yes, we do know that some are currently huddling under blankets to escape the winter chill), we've decided to throw a week of celebrations!

    You might have already noticed a couple of small changes to the forum (*hint* revised FAQ and index), but during the week there will be more threads, challenges, games and competitions, as well as a new name and banner! We're also have a couple of surprises to spring on you later in the week.

    In the meantime, I'd like to invite you into this thread. Speculate, discuss and put on your togs, or a couple of extra layers.

    The Bar is now open!

    Puts Orlando Bloom behind the bar, grabs a hot chocolate and carefully wraps her cold stiffened fingers around it. Disappears into the back of the room with a blanket and falls asleep in front of the fireplace.

    (I figure this room has a winter and a summer side :p )

    The way they crank the air-conditioning in my office, Kit', I can't tell a difference, either! The only place I know where I need a space heater in the middle of August...

    My fiance gets the same thing, Layren. In fact, today it's rather comfy and he's wearing bedroom slippers on his feet so his toes won't get cold. :p

    I still say you Aussies don't have need for hot chocolate. Up here we had a week and a half where the temperature was
    -22C and the cars had a hard time starting. It got to the point where you didn't notice that a few degrees below 0C was cold and you even wanted to bring out the BBQ and the shorts if it went above freezing. ;) Yup, that's New York winter for you. :p

    Oh, and do we have a pool in here? I've been wanting to go in one badly since it got warmer, but not enough time in the day. ;)

    Yeeeeeeehaaaawwwwwwww!!!! SUMMER! Only one class, an internship, and digusting amounts of free time to spend in front of the computer instead of outside in the beautiful warm not-so-fresh NYC air! :p

    *sees the bartender*

    Hey, Orlando, how about going back to school and learning how to act?

    ;)

    Sorry for the off-topic, couldn't resist... :p Me and my friends have agreed that he acts only by furrowing his eyebrows... [face_laugh]

    Cosies up to the bar and starts asking for obscure drinks from 50's rat pack movies just to keep the bartender nearby.

    Come on jade, i bet between the two of us we can play a fun game of stump the bartender...

    I'd disagree wtih you Mar17swgirl, I think Orlando acts a lot better then many other actors in Holliwood. :p

    Snuggles up to the bartender behind the bar, while drinking a new hot chocolate.

    It isn't all THAT cold down here, but it certainly beats our summer weather.

    My dad insists on keeping the dang airconditioning so high on cold days that I can't even get rid of goosebumps in a hot bath. I"m currently wearing fleece pants, my ski socks, and a sweatshirt. Ask me if it FEELS like summer. I'm just praying for summer weather on June 12, since it's had the habit of raining every saturday for a month now and I don't want that for my wedding, darn it!

    It may be summer but it's 65F today - cool and damp. Oh, well, I guess it's better than 95F and humid!
