Celebrating because I wanted so badly to be Mistborn and had just made it for one whole  week on the old scale and then forum ranks changed. :(  Now I've made it again yaay.  My next favourite rank to aim for is Gentleman Bastard  so there's a long way to go.

And when I think about the ratio of posts to quality posts, yours is about the best I can think of.
Congrats, LT! I'm definitely going to have to invent a hard magic system for Oggie one of these days if you don't beat me to it. (Though, I suspect she'd ignore the rules and cook outside the lines as always! ;D )

Congratulations, m'Lady, for your... mistrebirth?  ??? ;D
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

I'm the opposite.  I hit Mistborn on Saturday, which hey I like Mistborn so that's cool, but then that means I lost being a Bridgeburner.

I think I was witness to a post robbery today!

I was walking to work along the canal, no one around (everyone still sleeping in the boats, I guess), and then next to a stone wall there was a teen guy with a pink-ish bike, and I'm pretty sure it was trying to pick up a lock from the chain around the bar and the wheel!

I didn't look very carefully, but I kept thinking about it afterwards...

I find the reality of crime very creepy... as opposed to stories about criminal hi-jinks, which can be great fun!  :o

I'm pretty sure we have a brand new, unpacked VHS player in our cellar.

It's kinda pointless though, since we don't even have a single VHS. We do have hundreds of DVDs though.
