Decided not to start a new thread for “Spiderman: Far from Home.”

Just saw it Thursday night with Mrs. JMack.
I had a great time.
She fell asleep. But then, she nearly always falls asleep in movies.
Mrs. JMack at the Movies = the world’s most expensive nap.

But anyway, it was a hoot. Lots of laughs, good action, nice performances all around.
Someone described it as a sweet teen comedy draped in superhero stuff. That works for me, too.

I was welcomed by Xiagan, so I’m not getting picked for sides. Again.  :'(
Spoiler for Hiden:
Fucking third grade all over again.


Who was the first person to welcome you to your new home?
Who was the first person to reply to your outside the intro section?
Who were the first three posters who replied to your first ever topic?

The first post I ever made in the introduction section was about 3-4 years after I joined and it was "Hi, I'm Brandon Darewoodson" because Eclipse had nicknamed me that in a post and Xiagan changed my name to Brandon Darewoodson without me noticing in like forever.  Scarlet was the first to reply.

So my first post ever on the forum was in the middle of a conversation, and it was pretty much ignored, my second post ever was starting my own topic that 2 people replied to.
...but I actually replied to myself first!
Then jefGoelz
Then RocknRollnWrite

My next post got ignored...

The next time someone replied to a topic I posted was over a year later, and that was
Dr. Chill

Fixed the “ignored my post that was in middle of a conversation” bit.
Better late than never?  8)

Erm. @J.R. Darewood: What exactly is deconstructionism?

@J.R. Darewood, there’s just so much here to unpack.
1. Maybe you’re just a dolphin kind of guy. Happy to play with a frisbee, but savage on the sharks.
2. Were you drunk?
3. Were you drunk again?
4. Don’t be drunk for the Phoenix.
5. After getting drunk and choosing a blind man with a broken tattoo gun, the bottom feathers of the “Phoenix” peek out from under your pants cuff. Women everywhere wonder why you got a turkey buzzard wrapped around your leg.

Hi, @J.R. Darewood:

I agree with SBea that the letter is long. I took a very quick scan just now. I’ll reply more fully tomorrow.

But I don’t use Goodreads!  >:(

Xiagan, twice. Once when I asked how to do spoilers, and then when I posted in the intro section.
I was nervous about the Forum at first, but then I posted like a mad man in 2015,] and 2p16. Then a bit less in ‘17, and a bit less in ‘18, and a...

Note to self: Do better.  :-[

Wow. Even with only four stories, we got 3 fabulous ones (I withhold judgement of mine).
Great stylish writing!

But, yeah. I voted.

I agree with @ScarletBea about the theme. Of course, “normal” is a slippery word.  ;)

Whew! Glad you said you drank beer from a tap instead of a tub.  :o

What's the fun in that? I want a tub or a barrel Vikings style at least.

Just not the one you soaked in for an hour first?

Congratulations, @Nora! I loved the world and the magic, plus the sense of specificity you brought. @Alex Hormann, the last line was so very fun. The whole thing was so very wrong it was right. You both had my votes.

@Slaykomimi, I was this close to giving you the nod.
@Matthew, you Story was really strong, too. Hard time choosing!
