Congratulations to @Sweetprincipale on completing Waiting.

@comlodge I am doing a bit of a happy dance that your muse has returned and you'll update Everybody Hurts. I love that story! Know how it goes when the muse just refuses to work with you.

Thank you, @Holly! I so admire your work, and this is nice to hear.

@SoddThis - The people on the list have volunteered to be approached for betaing. A friendly message asking if they are still interested in betaing isn't rude. And the worst thing they can do is say no. smile

So, I really want to get some Betas, but I feel so very rude just asking folks off the list. Is there some etiquette I'm missing here? I'm good to Beta swap, and read each other's stuff as well. Suggestions?

Glad to have you back, comlodge. The muse can be like that -- quiet for ages then suddenly gabbing your ear off
January 24, 2021 11:30pm

Hey all. It's been a while but thought Id say hi and let you know my muse has found me and I've a couple new chapters Everybody Hurts on the boil.

@nmcil - Grief Counseling is Dampers' new name. You can reach out to her there.
January 24, 2021 10:33pm

@kats_meow - thanks for the info on dampersandspoons don't see a member with that name now is their a new one I should use? Thanks again I like this author very much.
January 24, 2021 09:31pm

@nmcil - yes, for the time being, but if you message her, she will send them to you in a file!
January 24, 2021 08:56pm

Sorry if this is a repeat - my apologies if so. Has dampersandspoons remove all stories from fanfiction sites?

Thank you!

@Cosmic Tuesdays brill! Thank you.
@CC414 I'll swap you for England if you like. I feel like I haven't seen the sun in years by this point weep

Going through a heat wave here. Going outside it's just unberable. My head hurts and I'm half asleep all the time. Such fun!!!!

Behold .... there comes an exquisite corpse.

@AlloSpoike: Yes, that'd be an appropriate American use of the term. "Crank up the thermostat," "turn down the thermostat."

@Girlytek I was with you for the first two but you lost me at Spam, I'm afraid! Will try the other two though. I love pickles!
@HebiC that restaurant sounds amazing. Nice simple business model, too!

January 24, 2021 12:31pm

@Slaymesoftly Thanks! I mean something on the wall which you can use to adjust the temperature of a room.
January 24, 2021 12:30pm

PB & potato chips; PB & pickles; PB & fried Spam on a toasted English muffin
January 24, 2021 12:13pm

Try a banana on a toasted hot dog bun spread with pb&j and marshmallow fluff!
January 24, 2021 11:59am

I used to hate pb&j, turned out i just hated grape jelly. Strawberry or raspberry is fine. There was a restaurant in the Village that only served pb variations!
January 24, 2021 11:56am

@AlloSpoike - yes, it is. Although without context, I can't tell you if we use it the same way. @Luci54321 - I've put crispy bacon on PBJ sandwiches. Not lately, because a don't usually have bacon in the house, but back in the day- sure did. Congrats @Sweetprincipale
January 24, 2021 10:22am

Can anyone tell me if the word "Thermostat" is used in American English please?
January 24, 2021 10:05am

Well done @Sweetprincipale! squee
January 24, 2021 09:48am

I just clicked "complete" on Waiting. I feel like I can't breathe and I'm happy and going to cry all at the same time. I think I've been working on it for a very long time, lol.

Woke up to snow showers, leaving a sprinkle settled, which doesn't happen often in Devon. Now it's mostly melted except on N-facing hillsides.
January 24, 2021 08:22am

Snow in London too!! big grin
January 24, 2021 07:03am

Lots of snow in Birmingham, England today. By British standards, anyway. Anyone else got snow?
January 24, 2021 06:23am

@Lusi54321 I already like peanut butter and bacon so I can imagine that might be nice! Although I might be tempted to put apple sauce instead of cherry...
