I just saw that her colour changed! Congratulations, HoiLei! You deserve it.

Good luck admining this rabble. Here's an Indiana Jones-style bullwhip in case you need it. You'd better practice for a little while. *steps out of the way*

Lady HoiLei,

I abase myself before my new mistress, and offer her profuse oblations at the altar of her lexiconic majesty.

My literary saber and buckler, crude and boorish as they might be, stand at thy service for any future contests that thou perchance should demand of them.

Rule with wisdom and fairness, M'lady.

*Lord Slick Jimmy, Child Of Destiny, The Dread Cyber Ronin, Mack Of All Macks, with lethal elegance and aplomb, bows low to the divine throne of the ascended Goddess, then sweeps from the chamber with a flourish, his armaments slightly rattling under his dark trappings... and High Court gives collective a shudder of relief as the terrible zephyr of desolation and destruction passes from their midst...*

Heh-Heh-Heh... I am so full of bullsparkle!

Can Ya' Dig It?

Slick Jimmy Has Left The Building...

Congrats HoiLei, you certainly do deserve the red robe. No doubt you will perform you new duties with fairness and the tactful grace you have always exhibited. For those in administration that plucked you for this new honor I can only say; You have chosen wisely. (appropriate movie line)

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate your kind words, and I'll do my best to serve with, um, wisdom and fairness and bullwhips... bullwhips?! *gives an experimental CRACK* Um, thanks Night...

Actually I just watched a show on bullwhips the other day... did you know the CRACK noise is really the very tip (the popper) breaking the sound barrier? Pretty cool.

Anyway, I look forward to filling this new role here.
HoiLei

Daedalus has indeed left the staff. We'll miss him, but hope he'll find more time now for his own writing, the Oddville Press, and his other commitments.

And thanks again to everyone for congratulating me!

All Hail admin Hoilei! Long live the admin! *bows down in front of new mistress of mistressness*


Wait. Because I did that do I need to bow to every admin and HAIL! them? If so tell me and I'll make it my signature so I don't have to type it every time I post.


Edit: thank you Slick Jimmy for spotting my mistake!

Thanks guys! Mattimeo, you can feel free to bow down to me at all times, regardless of rank. *sniffs imperiously* Okay, not really. A short bow whenever you walk into a room should be fine!

Jimmy... whaddaya mean "easy mistake"?! Isn't my avatar the girliest of the girly? Or were you just saying how masterful I am? I am prepared to feel mollified, if so. *holds off on calling for Slick-Jimmy's head*

Goddess HoiLei,

In all that Imperial Majesty blasting about you, a Newbie can get lost, you sweet, lovin' Girly-Girl, you! You fluster all us lil' boys out here in the ether, so Mattimeo's faux pas is easily understandable. I'm mean, you shine in such divine glory that it's hard to gaze directly at you. Why do you think I wear shades all the time?

Smooches!

Ya' Feel Me?

Can Ya' Dig It?

Slick Jimmy Has Left The Building...

*looks mollified* For that, I think I'll make you my new favorite. (All Imperial Majesties get favorites, don't they?) That means you get to walk around in silk pantalooons and compose sonnets in my honor. Don't you feel lucky?

Mattimeo gets royal favor as well, for editing his post!

*sweeps out of the room, treading on rose petals and red carpet*

What is going on in here?

I knew it!

I now have proof, HoiLei, of your plans to build a writing army and take over the world!

I'm mean, you shine in such divine glory that it's hard to gaze directly at you.
Wow. How do I get in on some these compliments?

Yeah, me too. I mean the Imperial Majesty thing. Not the girly-girl thing.

HoiLei, your avatar could be a little more girly. It needs some pink ribbons and teacups. And bunnies. And flowers. Uh-oh. There's no room for the original subject

Out with it, SJ! Let's see that sonnet in HoiLei's honour!

A sonnet? I don't do pentatonic meter, but if my memory does not fail me, I do believe I posted a little poem about a Goddess over in the Poet's Corner. HoiLei could co-opt that lil' lay if she wishes. In fact all you ladies could if you like. No skin of my nose. Dig.

Can Ya' Feel Me?!
