A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. Somedays i feel the same way

A "grammatical pedantry syndrome" is a form of OCD in which suffers feel the need to correct every grammatical error that they see. Guess who?

C'mon Add. Part of being an SM is letting us know when our flies get there and complimenting them even if they don't deserve it. Maybe a problem on your end but you're being S(ado) M(asochistic) while we're all waiting on word of our flies.

Looked at his profile he hasn't logged in since the 29th of Nov. I will be finishing up my last fly tomorrow, I'll mail them out to everyone if this swaps a bust.

Just  a note.  I met Add147 (Adam) at the Rendezvous last month.  He's a great guy, and I am sure he hasn't abandoned anything.  But he does have some issues at work and with family that can take him away for a few days or weeks at a time.

 

Give him a little more time.
