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: QM - Lost and Found: Brains and Dragons

I'm now putting a shiny chain on my vest, trying to shape it like a vine. Then the shinies will be attached to that. One day I will also paint leaves on my costume, but that's not this year...

It seems everyone is being super productive today.

Re: QM - Lost and Found: Brains and Dragons

Painted little butterflies on the white cardigan.... cut up and painted the red one as well...

The hand sewing was horrible... my fingers are full of little holes..... I also made my first ever button hole, which was very very difficult and it probably would have shamed my gran (who was a professional clothes maker) and I definitely won't show Cyan... but I am very proud of myself!!

Re: QM - Lost and Found: Brains and Dragons

That sounds like slow and painful work, Libra, but also like good progress!

Re: QM - Lost and Found: Brains and Dragons

I've been working on my costumes as well, and cleaning a lot.

Re: QM - Lost and Found: Brains and Dragons

Ohhhh L and C are so funny.... just went out for a cigarette and all the lights in the house are on... so I'm already thinking someone got sick or something happened... then L happened to look out the window and she sees me and calls out to me "We have a spider!!" So C lets me in, but of course by this time the spider (ginormous as far as I can tell) has disappeared somewhere under the bed, so I couldn't catch it (couldn't even see it).... and there they are; two grown women deciding whether to sleep in one of the kids' beds.... one of them not even coming into the bedroom and the other poking under the bed with a big stick in the hopes of driving the spider out....

I love these people.....

Re: QM - Lost and Found: Brains and Dragons

I understand them so well.

I found a tiny spider in the bathtub this morning, and I did not need that. *shivers*

Re: QM - Lost and Found: Brains and Dragons

Castlefest inspired at least!
