What did the mustard ever do, huh? It's not the mustard's fault it was there! We all know Randall makes no mistakes, thus the mustard is as legitimate as Megan or Cueball! Just because it was retroactively removed doesn't mean it should be abused like that, cast out as if it had done something wrong! I say we give mustard back its rights! No more heretical mustard! No more heretical mustard!

That being said, it's about time I collapse on a fibrous mass in a rectangular prism shape, fall into a coma, and hallucinate for 8 or 9 hours. Then I'll return to consciousness and forget about it all. Just another typical night.

The mustard distracted from the narrative of the One True Comic by remaining static while the terrain and Cuegan both moved! And look, how we all spent TimeFrames and TimeFrames discussing something that WAS NOT MEANT TO BE by the great Lord Randall! It was supposed to be another contemplative journey period, but nooo, we got mustard all over it. :(

To me it was as blatantly wrong as if seizure-gif appeared in the upper right corner of the next newpix. Which, I think we all agree, would be heretical.

My time for Time has been minimal for a few outsider "days", and I find myself drifting even further into the past, despite moving forward. My respect for BlitzGirl increases every time I click "Next page" and find the One True Thread is expanding faster than I am reading.

I don't at this point know when I will return to the present, but it is still a goal..

I have a similar region of Paris, between the Opera and the Louvre. It's impossible to make a beeline from one to t'other.
But Luxembourg takes the biscuit, it's a 3-d town that MC Escher would have difficulties drawing.

We learned something this week. What an optogram is.

That is an epic cake, suitable for all 300-type occasions! Can we eat them both? :D The River cake was meant to be more commemorative of this Period of Time, and was used to also celebrate a 100th posterversary a few newpages back, so it's not exactly a 300th-post-specific cake like that one.

(What I'm saying is that I want to eat them both.)

The island did not sink, we just reached the handle of the River fork. I refer you to ChronosDragon's useful animation:

So now we have a scientific prediction from our hypothesised fork. We should see the river narrow in the coming TimeFrames.
