A Day in the Life

"What are you doing tonight?"

"I didn't have any plans, but I have to pre-tension my worm."

Silence. Followed by snickering. Followed by...

"You know what day it is?"

When your significant other says that there's a good chance you've totally forgotten an event like a birthday or anniversary. Suddenly I could hear Admiral Ackbar yelling "It's a trap!", followed by a quick rundown of the important dates on the friends and family calendar in my mind. I couldn't think of anything we should be celebrating today.

"Hello? Something that happened three years ago? Tentacles? The reason you steal my craft supplies?"

Today is Propnomicon's third anniversary, and it totally slipped my mind. Heh.

Happy Anniversary! Hope the thing with the worm works out.

"... followed by a quick rundown of the important dates on the friends and family calendar in my mind."

Gosh. You actually have one of those?

Um, where would a person go to pick one up?

The stars are right! Happy anniversary. ... and by the way it WAS a trap

"I have to pre-tension my worm." I keep re-reading that and LMAO.

Nick Storm said...

...and many more.

and Great Zushakon says "Leave the worm alone - you'll go blind"

@ ArcaneRadio

Few things in life produce more headaches than a worm that isn't properly tensioned.

@ Raven

Much happiness comes from using a scheduler to remind yourself of important days. Oh, and a supply of greeting cards stashed in a desk drawer.

@ CoastConFan

Thankfully, I was quickly forgiven.

@ R.S. Bohn

It's a sad state of affairs when one of the major concerns in your life is that your worm isn't curly enough. Heh.

Hearty congrats!

Well congrats! If it were more than three years I would've had to read even MORE when I first found Propnomicon.

That's right, it took me a night back then to read it all. How lovely.

Every morning when I first sit down at my laptop, there's a short list... maybe 10 max... of websites that I check first thing. Propnomicon's been on it for over a year now (since I found it).

Congrats on 3 years - quite an accomplishment for a blog with such a specific point of interest. Here's to another 3 years+!
