Aack! I was all caught up, but the Outside is interfering again. Back, Outside, back! *brandishes a chair at the Outside*
azule, thanks for the updated panorama. I think there was other cool stuff I forgot to mention--but I liked it!

Schizoblitzing. That's perfect. That's exactly what it feels like.
And great idea to post the tree image on that botany site! Looks like you got a couple of responses already, though no answers. And one of the people doesn't seem to have read your post all they way through.
I'll be curious to know if anything comes of it. And I liked your post on language. It does evolve rather quickly. Entries in the wiki can be edited to reflect all the variation, if that hasn't been done already. (I seem to like coming up with things for people to do on the wiki, but I never actually do any work on the wiki myself.
First, if anyone reading this missed her "Most wonderful thread on the net" song, unlock the spoiler below and read it (it is up there with BlitzGirl's "Don't Worry, Feed Squirpies" song for happy-vibes):
I just want to say, that I always smile when I see your avatar coming up next in the OTT, because I know I'm always going to appreciate what I'm about to read.
By the way, every time you have one of those exasperated ketchup posts where you are frantically throwing responses down in the short time you have before the Outside "finds you" or "catches you" again, I invent in my head some fantastic adventures you must pursue in the Outside. Those posts always have such a dramatic sense of urgency that I imagine you in the middle of warding of a zombie or raptor (or raptor-zombie!!!??!?!) army or performing covert CIA missions while somehow finding a moment to check the OTT and post some pleasant, optimistic tidbits. In my imagination, you have pretty much the most exciting life ever.
Well, that's all. Coma time.
Ahh, my cover has been blown! Yes, I work for a top-secret branch of the CIA called Raptor And Zombie Observation and Relocation (RAZOR). Our motto is "Keeping the world safe from zombies, should we ever find any, and raptors, even though they aren't usually dangerous to humans." It's a terrible motto. I'm not sure who came up with it. Yes, it's a dangerous job, but someone has to do it.
Seriously, thank you so so much for those nice words! They're especially appreciated right now, since I've been feeling bad that I was contributing to tension in the OTT. That is never my intention. I do hope the song gives everyone warm fuzzies.
And I'm afraid my life, while busy, is not quite that dramatic. I just work a couple of jobs, and play gigs on a somewhat regular basis, and I'm in a dance troupe and currently rehearsing for a musical. So, it keeps me busy, but I'm afraid it's not the exciting life you imagine. Sorry!
OK, time to
jump in my spy car
get back to my desk and do some work. Cheers!
