Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Actually I think we're all heading for room 101. wotf005 Oh and yes, they've shown me our team uniform and we all get matching *squeal* white jackets with these cute extra long sleeves that strap in the back. EVERYONE here is wearing them, it's the raging fashion. Will make it kind of tough to writ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

If this goes on much longer, some of us will have four entries out to the contest simultaneously.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Seems to me if they've tallied up (and announced) the number of countries, they've probably looked at all entries by now. I suspect there are no more unread entries. Perhaps undecided, but not unread. One thing that's been bothering me is the LAMPS. Mine was mores a PS... didn't really send it in a...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Up until this thread, I'd never even heard of Marmite/Vegemite before. What exactly does it taste like? Ever chomped a raw oxo cube? It tastes like that! wotf007 Another food I've never heard of (I'm obviously in need of some serious educating). Though the wikipedia entry for that one is a lot easi...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

Only at WOTF can a serious conversation about contest results turn into a lively discussion of international food staples. I love it! Not even I eat cream crackers dry though. These, on the otherhand... http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lnzbpfP9aj1qaf5he.jpg I just love the round crackers! wotf007 I sn...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

One two! One two! And through and through The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head He went galumphing back. I've always loved this one, though I fear it ends badly for the Jabberwock. wotf005 True. That's one of the only parts of the poem that's actually perfectly cle...

Re: Story Critique

I think I'll take you up on this. I've got a flash story that got a personal rejection from Flash Fiction Online but hasn't had much luck since. Be nice to get another pair of eyes on it.

I was going to say the Jabberwock. I've always thought that thing was rather gator-ish.

Re: NEW USERS! INTRODUCE YOURSELVES!

Hey all, I was active on the forum years ago, but haven't been around for a while now since life (finishing up college and adjusting to this thing called "real life") intervened. I've been lurking recently and decided it's about time to crawl back out of the woodwork and (re)introduce myse...

Re: Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books You Enjoy?

I like Ursula K. LeGuin's Left Hand of Darkness . It's the story of an emissary from a galactic community that functions something like the Hanseatic League did here on Earth. He comes to a planet nicknamed Winter because it's cold and snowy all the time . Also, all the aliens on the planet change g...

while we're on the topic of fonts, are serif fonts better than sanserif? I figure serif fonts look more like they came out of a typewriter, which is a more professional look, but it could also have something to do with uniformity in character spacing.
