[color=#000000ost_uid0]I'll just take it as a sign that I'm accepted as a regular poster, or something.

Though, what about something like: "Will criticize your HTML" [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Hmm, that rhymes too. But it's not a reference. (Does anyone get the reference, besides Cat, whom I've already told?)

For those who don't know, member titles are chosen purely at my whim. I go through and change them all when the mood strikes me, which is usually every couple of months. But I'll change them sooner when I notice someone I've missed, or when an avatar changes so that the joke doesn't work anymore. Celeste is the great exception to the latter.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Well, considering Gatac got one when he had about six posts... Also, considering I only got one after I had the most posts for a while... I'm not sure it has anything to do with regular posting.

EDIT: Oops, sorry Z. No mentioning of references here. :eyeroll:
It doesn't really rhyme though...[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]And that's more than I know.

So maybe I should get an avatar.

[uost_uid0]Edit:[/uost_uid0] You're too late Cat. I saw it. Hehe.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I get the reference. Derek didn't. Haha.

Is mine still the same? I'm (almost) always lurking, rarely posting...

(Edit) Yep, still the same.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]^ No, I didn't get it.

Honestly, my first thought was that it was a reference to Ma Bell, the old phone company. I didn't quite see how that fit with the username or anything though.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Always a bridesmaid, never a bride... except that once.

Good to see some of you got the reference. It's to the Beatles song "Michelle" -- download it, or just read the lyrics.

Hotaru, you've discovered one way of getting a title: complain about not having one. By the way, how long have you been a guy? I just saw that in your profile.

Sab, I got your PMs and your emails. And one way to get [iost_uid0]me[/iost_uid0] to kill [iost_uid0]you[/iost_uid0] in a storyline is to complain about my response time.

NAH: Very clever.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]By the way, everybody, Sab here [iost_uid0]is[/iost_uid0] the Admiral Sab referred to in her sig quote -- she's an old friend of mine from Deltachat. She's also the author of numerous guest fivers, including one of the site's first, "Displaced."[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]heh, OLD friend? I'm younger than you, pal.

but yes we are old friends and that's why Zeke and ONLY Zeke can kill me in a storyline. Take note of that Nan and Taya and Marc and whoever else from DC that may be lurking... don't get any ideas...

Actually, never a bridesmaid. I usually end up singing instead.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I've been a bridesmaid once! and a bride once! the bridesmaid thing was for my brother's wedding and I had to wear size seven shoes (I'm a size 8) because my stupid EX sister in law is stupid! Oh and the dress was ugly and NOT my style! :madder:

I have only been a bride once and I looked fantastic and wore shoes that fit. Definitely like being the bride better. never been asked to sing though... hmm wonder why? :cheesy:[/colorost_uid0]
