I've done a little time in lots of forums. Before GCD and CB, I used GD. Why? I don't remember. I think CB had many more bump threads at the time than it did now. I should probably check back into the anime and game forums, but last I knew, it wasn't super active, nor did it have many regular users.

Nah, Twitter is much more like talking into the sky. CB is... something else. I can curate my Twitter audience to be people I actually like whereas CB is a mixed bag. Sometimes I really like the users, but a lot of the time I'm just annoyed because it feels like inside drama/thirst/etc. I tried going back to GCD a couple times, but I felt offput by the plethora of item threads because 1) I'm overwhelmed by them all and can never keep track anyway, 2) I'm freakin' poor. My item knowledge is usually restricted to the I Can't Believe That Item Is So Inexpensive thread (which I have been lurking for YEARS). I am JUST NOW learning which project tickets do what + have to keep the list of color schemes open at all times to know which ones people are referencing. I dunno how y'all in GCD and AT do it sometimes.

You're welcome! And it is! I haven't been active in GCD in years (and even then, I was never a reg), but I want to get back into it + definitely have a few confessions of my own. I didn't realize until checking it tonight how much I MISSED long posts... Everything's too short and quippy for me in CB! gonk

Does this mean they will be refunding us the difference or something. Or making us pay more....cause I won't pay the usual!

I don't know the name because it's showing up ***not released*** in my Dress Up page, but it's the summer surprise item Admin was distributing via links in last night's AtS. It has a foreground layer and a background layer; you can see both in the avatar of the OP of today's CS Update thread, but the background I have equipped obscures the beachy one.

Ello love, thanks for coming to my shop and purchasing! I hope to see you around again!

irl isn't great right now tbh. But I'll be ok.


There's not much to say about me, I guess. I'm 30-something, been married since March 2OO3, and am a mother twice over. I have been a Gaian since February 2OO4. You may see me out in the Charity or GCD.

Warning: I heard Teal Deer and step on toes. It's not intentional; I fail at clear communication and tend to be direct.

If you need to know more about me:

❥ I am a ♀ INTP. We're fairly uncommon.
❥ I have pink hair (don't care).
❥ My spirit animal is Grumpy Cat: I am small, cute, and grumpy as ********.
❥ I have two crazy Shiba Inus. If I were an animal, that is most likely what I would be.
❥ I am a Knitter, Spinner, and Indie-yarn dyer. I also have a weekly fiber podcast.
❥ I have a Washi Tape obsession and love stationary/office supplies. They were my first love.
❥ No anime or manga will ever replace Sailor Moon for me.
❥ But these days I prefer American comics and really love Puppycat and Bee.
❥ I do not feel guilty about the lengths I go to make avatars here.
❥ My favorite color schemes on Gaia are Off-chrome, Seabreeze, Lavender Honey, Stagony/Cursed, Pastille/Sherbet/Pastel Rainbow, and anything that uses Miori Brown or peach.
❥ I am unapologetic about my love of "animal girl" avatars. I like to be a cat, a deer, a bear, a squirrel...deal with it.
❥ I have celiac.
❥ I am an aspiring sewist. I am also a quilter and a cross-stitcher. I'm crafty.
❥ I pretend to be an artist from time to time.
❥ I prefer to read non-fiction and am incredibly picky about my fiction reads.

UPDATE: I obtained my Bunny Slippers on 20 October 2006 after more then 2 1/2 years of questing! Thank you to everyone who helped; I couldn't have done it without you. ♥

I had hoped this would go without saying, but I do not accept random friends requests: I usually do not accept them after talking to you once or twice either. Sorry, nothing personal. I'm not into collecting friends.

“Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.” -M Thatcher

“I myself have never been able to find out what feminism is; I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.”-Rebecca West

"I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.” -Richard Dawkins

INTP Prayer: "Lord", help me be less independent, but let me do it my way.
