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.

As long as you are editing the header, could you add the H in RedNathalie?

*is led in by the nose*

*and also by Kenan's very kind and helpful hint on the Faceborg*

Drat, you people uncovered my nefarious scheme to blur the boundaries of my actual birthday, and get several days' worth of celebrations and cupcakes!! Now there's nothing for it but to eat all the many, many cupcakes and pies and flowers and fans, all at once. Woe, woe is me, I tell you!

^_^

Thank you for the remembrances, dear friends! *huggles*

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY REDNATHALIE

Once again, late to the party.  But I brought a cake!

Oh, sorry.  I grabbed a Humboldt Squid by mistake.  Easy thing to do.  Sorry.  Really sorry.

Happy Birthday!

Looks like Tentacle Week has really taken over if you're grabbing a squid by mistake...
