    Whee! This is the BEST intro to a forum I've ever had!

    Yeah, hi, I'm Divine Bird and I'm a longtime knitty-arty-spinny-yarny-type of Jenny. Been following DP since 2006 when I met Jennie at ConnectiCon. I was checking in artists (though my official title is Con Mom, and my job is to put out fires and soothe bruised egos, plus make sure everyone's properly hydrated) and this redhead trundled up, laden with boxes and bags and whatnot and wearing AWESOME BOOTS. She said, with no preamble, "Hi, I'm Jennie Breeden. Yeah, I'm taller in real life. Everyone expects me to be short because I draw me that way." I went home after the convention and checked out the comic, read the entire backlog, and have been religiously following it since.

    That's me in the yellow shirt in the new ConnectiCon pics, the one where she's knitting and I'm spinning.

    *waves after catching breath* I think I'll like it here.

    Silly?! SILLY?!

    I'll show you silly, damnit.

    Peeks nose out of room. ZOMG! It's nOobIe!!!!!

    NewbienoobienewbynoobiNOOOOB!

    Hehehehehehehehehehehehehe

    Thumpa Thumpa Thumpa Thumpa

    *runs past noobie, gnawing on multi-coloured yarn bits*

    cRaSh

    grrr. Let's try that again. *shakes head*

    *Pushes off wall*

    *Aiming at noobie...*

    You see a small creature smiling maniacally, and feel fear. This is something you've never encountered before, and it looks as though the creature is probably crazier than the Cheshire Cat, and too focused to be distracted by sparkly vibrating mongooses in jello pools covered in chocolate and/or catnip and/or pudding, but has been known to disturb the King of the Trolls and wreak havoc on unsuspecting Newbies, so definitely FEER DA KITTEH! But feel free to offer her wine. Wine makes her happy. As do new cars, and finished knitting projects.

    Mwuahahahaha

    And here we go...

    Aiming...

    Wiggle-butt...

    Tail-twitch...

    Runs at newbie...

    Bypasses noob, speed measuring at Mach 3, flies around corner...

    Runs back around corner, putting the fear of Kitteh into all watching...

    POuNce dA nOobIE!!!!!

    *grabs Falconess before she gets too far, nomming her ribs* Hi there. Don't mind me, I just have to torture the lecherous hump here.

    *continues nomming ribs, muttering about 'silly' and 'dopey friends'*

    *gets up and wanders off like nothing happened*

    Hi!

    Welcome to the forum. Mentioning placenta doesn't put us off pouncing.

    Actually, in my circle, we call it yarn placenta.

    for what ever reason i find untangling it very therapeutic

    So the swearing, bitching and general cussing that happens around that time (and generally lands on lil ol me who's too weak to mind it) is part of the therapy ?

    Hm. I should get back to my projects. They've been sitting idle all summer.

    i like yarn barf and when jewelry gets all tangled
    for what ever reason i find untangling it very therapeutic
    also like fixing jewelry

    the hubby's family was over this past weekend and his sister in law was at the table eating lunch when her watch/ bracelet sort of broke and fell off
    she did a quick fiddle with it and then gave up
    i wonder off get a tooth pick and repair it
    hubby said i should have warned him so he could have done the mcgyver music

    1mm tying wire does that too if you don't occasionally pause to turn the roll around a few times and slacken it off again. It's not so much barf as a giant Slinky with a bad attitude.

    You obviously do not spend much time with knitters.
