Twenty Five Years Ago Today....

I was a 16 yr old high school student who had a hard time showing up for class.  On that day I did.  First period was unremarkable.  I do not even remember what class that was.  Walking into 2nd period was like walking into a museum it was so quiet.  The radio was on and we just sat there; most of the day was spent moving from class to class and then listening to radio updates. Except of course for Algebra; the math teacher shocked everyone with continuing her scheduled lesson plan.  She acknowledged that the Challenger Disaster was tragedy for the families of the crew, but did not see why that should delay a pop quiz.

Hello from House Elf Liason Vilkasie

It only took two days (after being asked for my email address) to realize that -oh yes!- I need to log into my email and accept an invitation to post.  I would like to blame the itchiness of this towel but that would not be very elf-liason appropriate. (sigh)

This is the official blog call for recipes.  You can PM either myself or LadyPinky.  We are asking that you let us know if you have ever tried the recipe you have submitted; how it was received by those who ate it, and if you ever tried any variations of it.

If you have ever made your own lotions, cremes, shampoos, perfumes,  laundry detergent, or created your own dye - we would like to have those recipes too.  Please add any variations you have come up with and note how well your creation was received.  Submissions will be happily accepted until the end of the first week of March. There is a reason for that, but as we are not required to tell you - we won't!  You'll just have to wonder...

January Group Projects

Hi everyone! It's that time again. Group projects are live! I've updated the Group Projects Page with the current unity themes going on in January.

I'm not actively playing this term, so I may miss some projects in the house threads. If I don't have your project listed, send me a pm (volkat) with a short write up, and I'll get make sure it's posted.

Happy winter term, everyone!
