Hmmmm... What FFF has meant to me...

I've met a lot of really awesome people here. Had some great times, some not so great.

At the end of the day it's either the best thing that's ever happened to me, or the worst. I usually lean towards best though, not sure I'd be as happy as I am now without it.

Ha, I'm glad you do, it's usually where I go when I'm back on this site. This was one of the first internet communities I was on, I think I joined back when I was still in high school. I kind of haven't been on so much since then, but this is a very nice site and an awesome community.

I have a general wondering, that is about meeting people that you know on the internet. I have never done so, the idea always made me a bit uncomfortable I suppose even though I have good friends that I know only through the internet. For those who met people through forums and sites, what was it like? Was it weird for you?

Aw man people were talking about Shakespeare too!

My favorite is A Midsummer Night's Dream. It is just fun and everyone ends up happy. Romeo and Juliet always bothered me because of, well, Romeo was a bit of a whiny pansy and the tragedy sees somewhat contrived. Like, the tragedy was all from a misunderstanding. I didn't like it.

Macbeth is great too. That is a good tragedy complete with creepy witches and descents into madness and awesome battles.

The first time I did it, it was pretty weird. Not a bad weird, but just weird-weird. It was rather surreal to be sitting in the same room with all these people who I had gotten to know as text on a page and they had faces and voices. Even if we had skyped or something, just being close enough to touch was strange. It was great though.

The first time I went to Dragon*Con, I was cautious. I was staying at a different hotel from others, and I had my own room not shared with anyone I hadn't already met. But people were all pretty much exactly as they came across online. So meeting in person just brought most of us closer still and cemented the warm and fuzzy feelings.

I'm sure it doesn't always go that way though. There probably are axe murderers out there.

Woman, you are completely off your nut.


My first meeting was when I went to visit with LittleAlbatro's family. I was quiet at first, but she made me feel so at home. MsA and NVG were the first people I met at Dragon*Con. It was odd, but they were so friendly and inviting that I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. Though NVG scared me a lil, I felt so small next to him, hehe! Getting to know everyone was great. I know I had a blast. Every year going to Dragon*Con got better and better. Felt just as comfortable as people I see all the time. I mean, we shared beds for goodness sake! lol! I even had a couple people stay at my home without fear of them kidnapping me or chopping me up. Like Navy said, I'm sure that's not always the case, but I've never had a problem with any Browncoats. We is good peoples.

Fav Shakespeareian comedy? Much Ado About Nothing for me, hands down. Also got to play Hero in a high school play. I remember the guy who played Claudio tried to French me during the kissing scene, so bit his lip, lol! Ahhh, to be a bratty lil teenager again.

I've met several people from online, its allright. I've never maintained a relationship for long with someone I've met, except hooking up with my local Browncoats group here. But the only way I can get dates is with guys online so its worth it when I get frustrated about not going on dates. I've also talked to people on the phone from online a bit that's fun. I have one friend with whom I'm close from online and we talk on the phone sometimes.

Haha, that's a good point. Romeo and Juliet was supposedly meant to be a bit of a tragic satire of young love anyways, as opposed to an great love story.

I mean for pete's sake, at the beginning of it Romeo is being all lovesick over A DIFFERENT CHICK.

Oh Roxy! We'd just eat you up with all your epic cuteness and fun spirit. Personally, I tend to scare/excite so many that I meet. That feeling is usually mutual and fun times are had by all. Eventually we will have the funds to share all this love so be prepared for long due hugs and/or drinks courtesy of loving Browncoats of FFF.NET.

"No power in the 'verse can stop me!"


Stylish comback, stylishly late!! Anyone miss me?

I notice we're talking about the first FFF.net folk we met in real life... I have to say it was Verse Explorer who lives in Arizona, but on the basis of our friendship here on FFF.net she booked a one week trip all the way to Melbourne & we were like 2 peas in a pod! She is, & always will be my Kaylee-clone! Such a precious friendship, which has been growing ever since! Vex has also visited me here in London & I have spent time with her on 3 occasions at D*C! So precious to find that down time to just be with someone who is so very special to me!

Going to Dragon*Con was amazing!! Being met by Jimi-bear AKA RiverismyGoddess, who literally picked me up, alongside Ken (who's online name escapes me at the moment) & Birddog at the Airport in Atlanta, & also Canter who had arrived from South Africa the day before me! Spending time with Jimi & his boys in Georgia... spending time with his parents, as well, whom I still count as friends... then Dragon*Con was incredible! Phoenix Rose, with whom I had spent hours on the phone, literally glomped me in the foyer of the Hyatt! The Scotts, Navy & AB Mick!

That was so amazing - it felt so natural & right to hang out with folk I'd never met in person but with whom I was completely at ease after long time spent getting to know each other online! My first trip to the USA! Hanging out with my li'l sister, MsA & her wonderful NVG!! Sharing beds, as Roxy mentioned!! Drinking rum! Eating the rich, generous servings of American food! Most of all just being with people I felt I was family with!

I've met folk from around Australia, the UK & all over the USA through this fandom! I have additional family in New England after a 2 year relationship with Naughtyman, from FFF.net & I'm God mother to NVG & MsA's precious little browncoat boy! I have found "twin brothers" who share my birthday (give or take a year or two) & I have visited & stayed with browncoats from FFF.net who wouldn't have dreamed of just letting anyone stay with them! Mavoureen, ummmm Erin, who's online name I forget as well, sorry & of course Little Albatross! Some of my dearest friends in the world are people I first me on FFF.net! Can you all believe it's 10 years today since this site launched! Haken has done an amazing job!


My favourite Shakespeare comedy is also Much Ado About Nothing, but I was in a great production of A Midsummer Night's Dream once & I also have a special place for that in my heart!

Spring break sucks.


Anyway here's one for you guys. There's this friend of a friend here who's awful with money and seemingly delusional. She is a stay at home uh...aspiring author I guess. Her husband works crazy hours and they just barely squeak by. Anything unexpected that comes up usually throws them into panic mode. Anyway the recent drama is that they move apartments every year because the complexes usually try to raise your rent if you want to stay. So, she's come up with the genius plan of buying a house to avoid the rent issue. She seems to think they can get a house under 200,000 with a $500 mortgage. They plan to "save" for a year to make the down payment. There isn't a snowballs chance in hell they're saving 20% of 200,000 in a year. If they go crazy they might be able to save 7,000 but even that will never happen. My friend suggested to her that if she really wants to buy a house that she probably needs to get a job. She threw that out saying they can afford a $500/month mortgage and they already have a plan to save the down payment.

Would you say it's best to just let stuff like that go and not worry about it? Let them figure out it's not going to happen on their own? She clearly doesn't want to hear about the flaws in the plan or any other plan that's more likely to succeed.

Sorry guys it's been a hellish week here.
My grandmother died on Monday, on Wednesday one of my co-worker's 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and today I get to be in the first round of mediation because a parent is suing us.


Zeek- nope some people live in dreams so much they don't want to even visit reality. It's likely she gets super defensive because she knows that her plan isn't and won't work, but if she faces that she has to face the fact that she's wrong and she needs a job etc... some people suck

The parent suing us is like that. She doesn't want to hear that her bad parenting and her kids lazy irresponsibility is the cause of her problems. She wants us to be at fault so she's pushing forward even though it's ridiculous to blame teachers for a kid's tardies and truancies.

I get to find out midnight tonight. I'm pretty confident that it's going to be good. The reviews are pretty much all good except of the people who bash all superhero movies in the same breath as saying Avengers sucked.

New ponder: Can you save seats in a theater or not?

We got into an altercation at midnight avengers. We had 8 tickets and were saving two blocks of 4 seats. Someone decided that wasn't cool and sat down in the seats anyway. I could see it if we didn't have the tickets, but we already had the seats purchased and we got there to save them.

It was funny cause at this theater they serve food during the movie and our waitress said if we had the tickets we could save them. Then the dude showed up who took our seats and she was like "oh yeah I can't do anything about that". So why'd you say we could save them?

We decided to let it go considering there were still seats in the row right in front of us so we ended up 4 in one row and 2 in the row behind and 2 in the row in front. Though I'm pretty sure we could have gotten them kicked out. They have a policy if people are talking that you can have a waiter or waitress kick them out. 8 people all agreeing that they're talking loudly is probably enough to get that taken care of. Don't be a jerk when you're outnumbered.

I don't think it's set in stone. If said people aren't there and the theater starts getting crowded, then all bets are off. Seeing as how you had the tickets and there were other seats available, I'd say you were fine holding the seats. Usually when I have to hold seats I'll put a jacket on it or a drink in the holder, then people usually don't bother.

Avengers was insanely awesome. I am a bit miffed that I missed the

See in Utah they solved that problem. It's reserved seating. So when you buy your ticket it reserves a specific seat. So you buy early and you can buy the whole block. It saves a lot of embarrassment if you have chronically late friends. You don't have to try and block off seats while people give you dirty looks..

Hi MSA, you're in Utah? That's where Byte is!

Zeke, I will never patronize an establishment like the one you describe because I need to talk, and be talked to, in the theater, we try to do it quietly but its just how it has to be. I would not knowingly give money to people who would consider kicking me out. I wonder how many theaters I'm giving money to who would do that to me?

As for saving seats though I see no problem with it, I couldn't care less if people do it. Ya gotta look out for you and yours in life.

That would be a good idea. I assume it's a complete win for the theater. I mean they probably sell tickets super quickly when they go on sale.

So, MSA do you remember a long time ago you posted a recipe for chicken pot pie? I'm finally going to try it out this weekend. My family is coming to town over memorial day weekend and I'm trying to think of something I could make for them. So, I'm trying a test run. Wish me luck.

Oh and I assume the chopped up chicken should be cooked already right? Well that's my plan at least. I doubt it will get too dried out that way even if I'm wrong.

Turned out pretty good. It was spicier than I expected. I'd probably cut back on the red pepper in the future. Also the crust wasn't easy to figure out. It came in like little biscuit shaped thingies. I put those on a pan for a little while until the poofed up enough that I could cut them in half. Then I just sorta arranged them across the top. Didn't really cover everything but it worked well enough. Also I didn't know if I should cook the potato first or not. So, I boiled it for a little while. Turned out just right IMO. Overall I think it worked well and I'd make it again.

Anybody see the HIMYM season finale? Spoilers to follow.

Select to view spoiler:




Jeez HIMYM is really taking their pent up aggression out on marriage aren't they? Ted gets left at the alter by Stella. Zoe gets a divorce for Ted. Victoria leaves her fiance at the alter. Barney clearly doesn't go through with his engagement to Quinn. What the heck?

I liked seeing Victoria again. I just wish they didn't throw in the part about her ditching her fiance at the alter.

I fully expected that bride to be Robin. I'm kinda glad because I don't think the actress who plays Quinn has very good comedic timing.

Ted sure is becoming more and more of dbag isn't he? I'm really getting tired of his character making bad decision after bad decision. Could we get sweet Ted back please?

You know what's not fun about home ownership? Cleaning a home. Ugh. Family is coming to visit for memorial day. I'm close but still have more work to do.

It's almost June, but I figured I'd give 'er a bump.
