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.

*sprawls* I am in!!

Thank you cyan for reminding me! And thank you to this thread for making me want to binge watch Firefly this weekend. ^_^

Can't wait for the Smarchcards to bring the holiday spirit to my house! I will also attempt homemade cards again this year, which means I better get off my keister and get to it...

We're planning making a set of legs from an old pair of jeans and hanging them from one of the vents, making a dummy and tying it up in an office chair with fake dynamite and writing one the jumper "No I've got a machine gun.. Ho ho ho"... Having lots of Twinkies and lots more....

Re: Holiday Card Exchange 2017

Okay you lovely Smarchers!  I've sent the mailing list to all participants *except* Firsfron because he hasn't PM'd me with his address. 

Yes, I have your address Firs, but according to the rules you still need to PM me because that serves as explicit consent to sharing your address with everyone else on the list.

Re: Holiday Card Exchange 2017

Anyone here absolutely ok with receiving a *Christmas* card? Still Firefly themed, and my personal favorite, but also very overtly Christian.
