On the Subject of Obituaries, and Collective Noveling Insanity

After an appallingly long absence, and numerous threats from Lanta on posting an obituary for me, I have returned! *triumphant music*

I could summarize my life since my last post (which would be completely boring), but I won't bother. It can all be summarized in one word: life. And that pretty much covers it. I've gotten a dog, combined crops a ridiculously lot, had a birthday, finished one year of school and started the next within 3 days, and over-dosed on some really cool bands. I've gone to a camp, stayed up late most every night, and eaten half a bag of dill pickle chips.

And somehow, the blog got lost among all that. O.o My apologies, dear readers. I do tend to be quite the procrastinator. *blushes*

Oh, and a random announcement:


This year, all three triplets (and some unwitting others from FTN) shall be participating in the annual writers' suicide known as the National Novel Writing Month. Ah yes, the glory of putting ink to paper (or finger to keyboard), and finding nothing to write in your brain! The agony, the knawing of fingernails, the relentless November 30th deadline, the frantic midnight scribblings, the PROCRASTINATING!! All together, as we drive ourselves insane in our literary pursuits. 50,000 words by the end of November! Can it be done? YES!!!! Will we succeed? ..... who knows?! But we shall try! Wish us luck, and we shall try to keep you informed as to the state of our novels, and our poor overworked brain.

Oh, and a sidenote in order to hopefully prevent too much confusion, with our recent adventure on the family threads on FTN, I now answer to both the names "Bridget" and "Ranya."

And on that pleasant topic, don't say more, say MORDOR! :D

Not all changes are bad.....

....especially not when they involve the addition of a triplet to this blog! ;)

Yes, my readers, the most Honorable, most Gracious, most Worthy of Praise, most Beautiful Lady of Ladies, the Fair Lady Delaney, shall be joining this blog! And yes, in case your hearts are troubled by a premonition that she might not be quite as evil as Bridget and I, nor quite as funny as I, nor quite as dead as Bridget (though why you should so ardently desire the last, I have not the faintest idea, no, not even the slightest inkling of why!)... well, let me reassure you.

For those of you who may have heard of her referred to as the good triplet in our youngling days in the fair halls of Rivendell, let me assure you that there dwells in her a deep and mysterious thread of pure, delightful evil such as you have been fortunate never to run into before--er, I meant, which you have never been fortunate enough as to run into before!

(Though perhaps I meant the first after all, as the thought of 'running into' a deep streak of such tremendeous evil as Delaney's is just perhaps a little disquieting to one's proper state of mind.) And as to the potential funniness that lies within our most esteemed Triplet... well, if you have any doubts, lay them to rest! for Delaney is one of that old, honored race that still refuse to fade into the recesses of the past that can make you simply split your sides with laughter! ;)

(Plus, she reads Chesterton! :D Can there be a higher compliment?)

From this day hence, let this blog be known to all as the most random and profound thoughts ever uttered by three evil triplets!

May the madness began!

But even in the midst of all your unfathomable joy, do not let your heart forget to utter its life's cry: Don't say more, say Mordor!
