    Fun, I post at XKCD too. What's your user name there? I think you mentioned also posting at Hatrack before, which I do also... I should register at Philoticweb too.

    I've lent my copy to my cousin....I hope I get it back sometime, so can re-read it.
    I have two copies, one of which my significant other has finally been coerced into reading.

    My name is Rowsdower. I don't post a lot, and when I do, it's mainly in the book forum. XKCD is fun.

    Philotic's alright. Some people annoy me. And I annoy some people. XD

    I coerce people into reading OSC. Like two aunts....one of which who got addicted, and the other who didn't really care. Ah well, not everyone has good taste.

    Not cheese grits. It's more like a casserole. You cook the grits, add all of the cheese and tabasco and worchestire and put it in a casserole dish and bake it. One pan feeds twelve, and at Christmas and Thanksgiving, my grandmother and my mom will both make a pan. There's usually about 13 people. By the end of the meal there's nothing left. Period. What's weird is that my great-grandpa on that side wouldn't touch 'em (they'd been kind of poor, but what do you expect? He was one of six, and had 9 kids)

    Yay for your dragon!

    I have one sometimes, when I'm trying to hatch one... which isn't at the moment. Bladeswift has an adult dragon in his sig, you and Fuz both have one, Renegade has one, and Tesra also has an adult dragon in hers. I think that's everyone, though I'm not sure.

    It's an online collection game where people "steal" eggs from the Cave. A batch of eggs is released each hour, and they're usually gone within a few minutes. If you manage to steal one, you need to find ways to get people to click it and view the image url it gives you, and if it gets enough views and clicks it will hatch over the following week. If it doesn't get enough, it will die. Once it hatches, it's then a hatchling which also needs views and clicks in the same manner to grow up. Once it's an adult, it's no longer in danger of dying and doesn't need views and clicks anymore.

    There are around 35 species of dragons available, some of which are much rarer than others. The fun of it (to me at least) is getting the rare ones. My collection at the moment is complete until they release a new one.

    I've also contributed a sprite of my own to the site which I'm hoping will get used sometime in the future (a new dragon gets released on average of once a month or so). My contribution is a feathered raptor dragon.

    It's a game, Chelks. You get an egg. You get a code for the egg. You paste the code everywhere so people will click on it, and the dragon will hatch...

    I tried putting the link on Neopets, but I got suspended.

    Wittle dragon's almost hatched, it looks like. I can see a hole in the egg. Unless a dragon-snatching evil bird drilled in and yanked it out from the egg.

    I'm bored, so here's two funny stories and whatever else.

    The fair is in town, and this one kid went. He said that he saw two girls and wondered if they were lesbians. He claims that just as they were about to kiss, he tapped on one the shoulder and asked for her number. Then they were talking that they were going to beat him up, and all.
    I'm sorry if it's offending, but in Redneck Capital USA, it sure is funny.

    This one's about me.
    I was sitting at the Cracker Barrel with my parents.
    The Waitress: "What would you like to drink?"
    Me: "Salad."
    Waitress: "What?"
    Me: "Salad."
    After some weird looks from my parents and the waitress,
    Me: "Uh, Dr. Pepper."

    I felt pretty retarded, but I laugh about it now.

    I wish my art program was magicall combined with some stuff from Pages or Keynote. I have a font made up with little swords making up the letters, but I can't make them rotate. I wish they could be stretched and curved too. *sighs*

    I hate those dragon snatching evil birds.

    I don't know if that's something you wanted to do or not, but having a huge load of clicks in a short period of time for an egg is bad. It'll get soft egg shell disease.

    I'm not kidding by the way.
