Well this place is just as I remembered it.
 
Lovely to be back!

I don't know if anybody remembers me at all, but I used to hang out here, like 10 years ago. I was probably invisible most of the time.

Oh, who am I kidding? I know my stories were somewhat popular, mostly because I had an INSANE freaking job which I dealt with by drinking irresponsible amounts of tequila and ranting on these forums.

I still trot out the infamous racist parrot story at parties, and it still gets laughs.

I am now self-employed, working as a copywriter and content marketer. I do have obnoxious customers on occasion, but they are more the "Clients From Hell" type rather than the hilariously low-class and insane type I used to deal with.

The writing practice I got on these forums did inspire me to 1) Go back to school and get a degree in Creative Writing and English, and 2) start studying comedy writing. I plan on moving to Los Angeles in a year, possibly two, to try and find work as a comedy writer.

I just wanted to pop in and say hi, because I have fond memories of this place.

HI!!!!!

It's always nice to meet other creative types. :)

I tried looking that one up, and couldn't find it. Perhaps you could repost it (pretty please!). We have several new members whom I'm sure would love to see it.

Welcome back, both of ye! ^__^ Always good to hear of good professional news and good stories!

Please feel free to PM me or another mod if you have any questions. Just to catch you up:

- We're under new ownership as of a year or so ago. Raps is still around somewhere, though.

- We're on new servers, which should help with the sheer volume of posts in our backlog; as a result of this, the Search system has had its restraints removed, and you can pretty much look back as far as you like to dig up yer old stories, with no more 100-result limit!

- Please take a gander at the site rules subforum when you can; the stickies and most recently-updated threads on there should give you a good idea of what to look out for ;) The rules haven't changed all that much over the years, and still basically boil down to "Don't' be a jerk." :angel:

Thanks! And holy moly, that was one crazy call! Just...wow. :jawdrop: Be glad you were on the other end of the phone line and not there in the room with them!

:confused: So we have ThePhoneGoddess and telecom_goddess... can the two entities exist in the same space-time continuum?

EricKei 01-26-2018 10:56 AM

It's OK, Kit. DGoddessChardonnay is a higher class of entity (known as a Modificus), so she keeps things under control ;)
