          Get a bunch of writers in the nano and this is what happens:

          Candy_Lips once more cackles cutely before going back to plotting
          zette[9:12:06 PM] [Writing]: Was that a cute cackle? Sounded kind of sinister to me.
          Candy_Lips[9:12:57 PM] [Cake&Tea]: *innocent look* I’m just plotting “Bad Dog”. Nothing sinister here.
          zette[9:13:12 PM] [Writing]: Right. We believe that.
          Candy_Lips hides the sexy turkey hat and traveling shovel of death
          AJDeVial[9:13:17 PM] [Candy_Lips hides the sexy turkey hat and traveling shovel of death
          AJDeVial[9:13:17 PM] []: O.o
          Candy_Lips[9:13:23 PM] [Cake&Tea]: Nope. nothing sinister here
          AJDeVial points at the travelling shovel of death and raises an eyebrow.
          zette[9:15:04 PM] [Writing]: That’s a NaNo thing each year.
          zette[9:15:14 PM] [Writing]: People write it into their stories.
          AJDeVial[9:15:29 PM] []: Nano thing?
          zette[9:15:33 PM] [Writing]: It’s been going on for years and years now!
          zette[9:15:38 PM] [Writing]: Traveling Shovel of Death.
          AJDeVial[9:15:53 PM] []: I’d never heard of it before today. Interesting.
          Candy_Lips[9:16:05 PM] [Cake&Tea]: It’s in the forums.
          Candy_Lips[9:16:10 PM] [Cake&Tea]: This thing pops up and kills someone.
          JAMarlow[9:16:15 PM] [Bunnies!]: Oh yeah. That shovel is imfamous.
          Candy_Lips[9:16:46 PM] [Cake&Tea]: It’s going to pop up in most of the books of this series.
          zette[9:16:46 PM] [Writing]: I’m always amused when they start talking about it again.
          zette[9:17:10 PM] [Writing]: And you are telling me this is not sinister?
          AJDeVial[9:17:42 PM] []: Alright, time for dinner brb
          Candy_Lips[9:19:02 PM] [Cake&Tea]: Nope.
          Candy_Lips[9:19:07 PM] [Cake&Tea]: Not sinister at all.

            The Traveling Shovel of Death – I never managed to get that one into my novels. But I did get a trebuchet in every time. There’s one advantage to writing hist fic. :)

              I have a corny joke I try to run every so often when I get the opportunity, where if there are a number of members in chat with the same first initial and 1 person whose first initial doesn’t match, I tell them they must “conform.” This time it had a particularly funny outcome (the empty line is a tongue-sticking-out smiley, and I had to edit out AJ’s status because it kept on wiping out text following it):

              glassquill[3:05:35 PM] [Ihaveplans]: yes, Ashe?
              ASheEltonParker[11:05:44 PM] [Boost]: You need to conform.
              ASheEltonParker[11:05:50 PM] [Boost]: yeah, pain is no fun.
              glassquill[3:06:06 PM] [Ihaveplans]: What should I conform to?
              ASheEltonParker[11:06:19 PM] [Boost]: Your name needs to start with an A.
              AJDeVial[3:06:43 PM]: LOL
              ASheEltonParker[11:07:06 PM] [Boost]: Oh, that felt good. It’s been months since I’ve had an opportunity to run that joke.
              glassquill[3:07:21 PM] [Ihaveplans]: I would. but ‘Assquill’ just sounds so many levels of wrong
              glassquill[3:07:23 PM] [Ihaveplans]:
              AJDeVial[3:07:38 PM]: hahahaha
              ASheEltonParker[11:08:03 PM] [Boost]: LOL

                Sorry about the confusion of text. To explain the circumstances of this conversation. around 8:00AM on the 29th of January 2017, Glassquill and I were in WG chat discussing her outing to a family holiday event. Over the duration, various family members made concerned suggestions for her meeting up with someone to date. See below:

                I already have someone but he apparently does not count because he is on the opposite side of the world. Weird logic, I call it

                Glassquill
                :P

                Ashe Elton Parker
                *nod*

                Ashe Elton Parker
                ask him to send you a full-length pic of himself in formal attire, have it enlarged, paste it to cardboard, and cut it out, then take it to family gatherings and introduce him around. :p

                Glassquill
                😆

                Ashe Elton Parker
                “Hi, [relative], this is my boyfriend, [name]. Isn’t he adorable?” *pinch the edge of the cutout somewhere around the face*

                Glassquill
                Heh. If I am going to go to that amount of trouble, it’s plush or not at all. It’s tricky trying to cozy up to cardboard, you know

                Ashe Elton Parker
                Or to be even more sarcastic, get a random cardboard cutout and glue a full-sized portrait of his face to the cutout’s face. :P

                Ashe Elton Parker
                I was going more for sarcastic pointing out of existing attachment. LOL

                Glassquill
                Oh dear, the mental picture

                Ashe Elton Parker
                LOL

                Glassquill
                i know. :D

                Ashe Elton Parker
                Make sure the portrait’s slightly askew.

                Glassquill
                With interchangeable wigs!

                Ashe Elton Parker
                LOL

                Ashe Elton Parker
                A stick-on beard glued to the portrait in imitation of his hair.

                Glassquill
                today, he’ll be a blond. Tomorrow, let’s go for the afro

                Ashe Elton Parker
                LOL

                Ashe Elton Parker
                Drape the cutout in a smoking jacket.

                Glassquill
                Nah. I prefer purple velvet dressing gown

                Ashe Elton Parker
                Or better yet, the most atrocious robe you can find.

                Glassquill
                Paisley pattern. That’ll do a number on their eyes

                Ashe Elton Parker
                Tape a pair of skimpy undies to the front of the cutout’s groin area.

                Ashe Elton Parker
                Just so you can make ’em wonder if they *really* just saw what they think they did whenever the robe flutters open as you shift the cutout.

                And that’s what happens when I’m exhausted and trying to cheer a friend up. LOL
