Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Anyone seen Aan and Xavie recently? Neither is on FB, AFAIK, so I'm not sure if they'd see this in any form.

I'm lurkingly checking in here pretty much daily, so did notice this already. (Otherwise always en route to too many things to do, and don't have too much to say atm.) I'll probably pop in at some point for old times sake, but when and for long will depend on how frazzled the day will have left me.

well, me. Just didn't write it there, thought I'd better drop in right away, and did. Without your fb announce I'd have missed it.

Can I get you to hop over to Friedrichshain for a few hours?

Seriously.

Strawberry White Chocolate Tart?
Pasta? I know my Pasta, honey. I'd even buy meat.
A few cds of northern folk you probably don't know yet for takeaway?
Some garment needs pimping?

Very seriously.

No, really.

btw, the Swedish party starts today, because we always celebrate the evening before. Christmas Eve, Easter Eve, Midsummer Eve. So I guess I will be all partied out when you get to it here. Sorry.

Hi,

I don´t know my schedule yet, but it will be a brief visit, and I really doubt I will have much time.

btw that only was because of the accidental fb-announcing-everything-via-e-mail-since-I-changed-my-main-e-mail-adress, I'm not checking fb, and I only occasionally check my e-mails, so, you see, - it's complex


miss you, Peter:)

miss you all horribly.
