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.

They are your cards to send out! Feel free to send whatever you like! :)


If you should do what makes you happy, and no one can tell you what makes you happy, then that means no one can tell you what to do!

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

I love getting actual Christmas cards! No supposed "war on Christmas" at my home!

I will make my cards this weekend. *firm nod* After I survive this week, that is...many frying pans will be deployed before my work here is done... *frenzies*

Re: Holiday Card Exchange 2017

Cards are ready - so all, what needs to be done is to send them off. *waves the envelopes around  to attract the reindeer-christmas-delivery-service*

I fear they aren't as creative as the Firefly themed ones, but I did my best *nodnod*

Kia, I cannot imagine your cards to be uncreative.

In other news: mine arrived yesterday. Hope to send them off tomorrow.

My cards are sent.... and I apologize in advance for my terrible writing.... new year's resolution will be writing by hand again, seeing as I seem to have forgotten how that works...

Well…I need to apologize too. My handwriting is terrible for exactly the same reasons. But cards were mailed today :-)

I do not apologize for my hand. It is not pretty but it is what it is and I use it frequently - thanks to bullet journaling ;-)

Re: Holiday Card Exchange 2017

I just fished a very pretty Kiacard out of my post box. Not only is it very pretty but also it has the most lovely and poetic words I EVER had on a chritmas card!

Thank you so much!

Re: Holiday Card Exchange 2017

I have received a lovely Kia-card as well.
And I probably have to accept that my cards are going to be late, because I still haven't had a chance to make, let alone mail them, and I won't have that tomorrow, either.
