We've all done it. In the heat of friendly debate some chance remark has resulted in a post that prompts you to go off topic and occasionally this leads to post things that you shouldn't. I thought it might be nice to have a well known area that we could go to to continue these discussions (obvioulsy not the offensive types). This happened to me recently in the http://www.sffchronicles.co.uk/forum/526581-what-do-you-love-to-describe-in-writing.html A post by Teresa tempted me to respond however, the thread was veering heavily away from the original intent and to respond would have made it worse so here goes. No doubt the powers that be will squash my futile attempts at a possible solution to this fairly common problem. Indeed you sum up my position exactly. I was young to the site in those days Pyan. In fact I haven't seen the true light of day or breathed the good fresh air since those heady days of the Carlyle meetup. I pray for an early release which I suspect will not be long for us all soon. Gary your concern for my plight is touching. That I could be so lucky to experience such a treat. Sadly, it would require a heat source and although I've asked for candles I fear they will never appear. Occasionally I do find a crisp dried spider that has fallen foul of the cooling fans and this does indeed at least lend a change in texture to my meagre repasts.
