I love that smell.^ It reminds me of happy hours spent in the pool.

Okay, Maple Fest. It's Sunday. It's raining. The bathtubs have raced; the longest beards decided and declared. Time to close her up.

The rest of us want our library reopened.

There was no real drama. Just the usual anti-board sentiment and complaints, a little bit of clique-snark, and some regrouping on other forums formed by members on FB. You may receive an invite if you haven't already. I think most board members are posting over there.

I am anti Facebook and though it has its ups and downs I'm pro NC.com. So I try to wait out the drama.

It was way more that than for myself (and perhaps GoldenCurly). What happened for very real for me

it's time for another installment of...

50 Sheds of Grey!

'I'm your slave,' she said breathlessly, 'Make me feel completely helpless and worthless.' So I locked her in the shed and went to the pub.

My 'no real drama' statement is being completely misread, so let me clarify to say - in the past a creation of new boards and a mass exodus has been caused by a specific thread, or couple of threads, that involved a lot of arguments and anger towards other board members and/or moderators. Generally they've been multiple page threads that blow up on a topic and cause people to reach their breaking point.

In this case the issue being inconsistent moderation has been an ongoing complaint, therefore wasn't specifically tied to such a blow up.

If it WAS tied to the temporary banning of specific members (which was over 3 weeks ago so I didn't realize there was a connection) then it seems to be that there was a specific reason, I just didn't know about it and I didn't make the connection. So when I said 'real drama' I wasn't implying that there was no existing reason, or that the drama (or reason) was fake. I was using 'real' to mean 'specific' since the complaint of moderation has been an ongoing one, and I assumed that was the reason for a newly created board. Or so thats what I was told. Maybe I should have put 2 and 2 together but I'm kind of dealing with a lot lately and my brain isnt always running on all cylinders.
Either way, I come here not with the intent on offending or arguing with people, and in fact, in most cases I may not check in for a couple of days to avoid that, but I seem to be constantly misread and misinterpreted. I try to clarify and apologize if I've been misunderstood bc honestly I'm not lying or making stuff up. Why would I come back and lie to explain myself or apologize? I people with bad intentions don't swallow their pride and apologize. I've been here for 9 years. I cant imagine lasting around here for 9 years if I constantly had bad intentions.

I realize the fact that there is no tone of voice here causes confusion. And I think lately my tone of voice is assumed to be rude and b1tchy by some people. Thats unfortunate. And pretty far from the truth. But there's really nothing I can do about that. If I apologize and I'm met with sarcasm of people was who basically tell me they don't care or dont believe me. Thats sad. There's nothing I can do about that either.

I love my foster dog.

She's the best.

(And now that I've put this in print, she's going to eat a shoe or something. Happens every time.)

Do I need to come to Canada and get somebody?

Hope you get help soon, Rou. It is horrible feeling like you are drowning in a sea of work.

It was tied to particular blow-up

Threads did explode

There were specific complaints

While the invite has always been out there for the taking, for me members reached out to me to make sure I joined

I'm not sure about being exited together after a heated thread, but I can say that this exit was caused by us sticking together. This wasn't about us being divided, but united. I"m on the other boards not to escape, but because members reached out to include me. (Which has meant a lot to me).

If you missed something and want details, feel free to PM me. I'm not saying that you have bad intentions, but the drama and clique comment struck me since I am a part of neither AND was personally affected. Does this board have issues among the members, sure, but this wasn't it.

Waah it's snowing. Not just snowing. It's a blizzard. (Still went out for ice cream though, like a true Canadian, haha).

And we all had our reasons to join the other groups - some of us because all our curly friends are there, some because of issues with moderation, some because they wanted to swear and post stuff from their online stores which were in no way competing with the store here.

Please stop with the assumptions and belittling (saying "no real drama" is belittling those who were directly involved, whether you meant it that way or not).

The only thing that cliques on me is my hip when I get up after sitting for too long. And my knee. Sometimes my ankle.

When will this dumb song go away from my head?
-----------------
A happy sigh.

All is well in Ninjaville now that the library has reopened. Four days of constant traffic, no inter-library transfers, and a ruined village square. It's enough to drive this library lover to distraction.

Also, rides make me barf. Yes, I'm old.
