Sometimes capitalization can make a world of difference.
The difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse" and the version with "jack" is quite big.

Now, although I love you all dearly, I'm not altogether thrilled about the prospect of blitzing 1500 pages. So I won't.
So, what's been up?
Oh no, the Messiah is back! The end is nigh! Repent! Repent!
Oh, about Blitzing: don't worry. The Wiki isn't complete, but if it's important it's probably there.
How did your finals go?

Blitzgirl and Yappo, I just want to thank you two. I have The Timewaiter and Rest With Me Here (besides WeLoveTheOTT2) on all the time, and you two really have a synergy, you get to me. Just Wowterful.
Do more together!

Don't be a silly molpy! I couldn't have done it without your wowterful work!

Can't get up to the Lakes, but thinking about Yappobiscuits and Morris men and other OTT sidetracks.
They're actually Morris ladies that I play for, but yay!
Rare message from the present due to slowness in acknowledging postal success: I never knew there were Morris ladies. I'm kinda freaked out by this.
There even is one recorded event of a Dark Morris dance. I can't find it, but it was at a Terry Pratchett signing session. Black clothes, no bells and no music. In the Discworld books the Dark Morris is done in secrecy, but these dancers decided to drop that because it would be boring. Pratchet wrote of it in the preface for one of the Discworld books.
Weeee, ketchupped again. My next story already has a skeleton, but the meat on the bones just won't grow. I need insbeeration! But alas, I am at work.
I might split the story up in a few chapters because the skeleton is already 1.5 A4.
