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.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

But Ylvs didn't want new jellybeans! So I threw them away.

I don't think she meant what you think she meant.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

Well, then, let me dig these out of the trash...

*pulls some soiled jellybeans out of the garbage, wiping them off*


Let's see... We've got an orchid jellybean of... ew... old coffee grounds...

And an umber jellybean of used dental floss...

Urk!  No, Firs!  In Ceywren's absence, it falls upon my shoulders to maintain quality control!

Out with you!

But wait! You haven't even seen the really good ones yet! Here's a... *digs through*... Watermelon jellybean of... whew, that smells pretty bad, after sitting all night in the trash.

*offers Cyan the three soiled jellybeans*

See? Auros likes them, too!

"Likes" might be an exaggeration.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

Ooh, careful, Auros. You just stepped on one, there.

*scrapes off the bottom of Auros' shoe*

This is a Flamingo jellybean of Flatness.
