2006-06-08 [RiddleRose]: it's monkeys... XD congrats everyone! pretty badges.... @_@

2006-06-08 [Athilea]: I was always told that ey was replaced with ies. . .hmmm. . .I don't know. I'm good at bad English, and sometimes proper English. And oh, Moorn. . .I just got the feeling that you weren't originally an English speaker. Not from the Monkey comment either, I just didn't think you spoke english.

2006-06-08 [La Divina]: That's scanniness, Athilea... hmm... even though I am teaching him Spanish!

2006-06-08 [Athilea]: Scannines. . .huh?? *is officially confused.*

2006-06-08 [La Divina]: "scanniness" = weirdness

2006-06-08 [Athilea]: Ahhh, I am often accused of that. I've just never heard that particular word before. Thanks for telling me what it means, I'll have to insert it into a conversation with my Networking teacher sometime and see if he catches it. Or my fiance. . .of course I'm sure that he knows what it means, he often hits me with words I've never heard before.

2006-06-09 [La Divina]: I took it from a book by my favorite science fiction/fantasy writer, actually.

2006-06-09 [Athilea]: Really? I wonder why I haven't run across it before. *thinks and shrugs* Ah well, I know it know. ^_^

2006-06-09 [La Divina]: Oh, I don't think it's a *real* word... it was a slang term used in the book.

2006-06-09 [Athilea]: Probably not. *shrugs* I can always figure it out. I mean there were many words that weren't real words until someone made them up, right?

2006-08-31 [Shh]: Is this contest over??

2006-08-31 [Calann]: It seems to be.

2006-08-31 [Mister Saint]: Yus, it is. ^^

2006-09-01 [Shh]: Why is it still in the Contest Section, then? :P

2006-09-02 [Kaimee]: People forget to update :P

2006-09-02 [Mister Saint]: I might not have sent a message to whoever runs the contest dingy... though... I could have sworn I did. *scritches* Ah well.

2006-09-02 [Sabrina Catherine]: os since I got htird place, I can put the trophy type thing in my prfile, right?

2006-09-02 [Mister Saint]: Of course. ^-^

2006-09-02 [Sabrina Catherine]: okies ^^ thanks *runs to her profile and puts it in her house*

2006-09-02 [Kaimee]: I thought we were just meant to keep any contests we listed in the contest section updated ourselves?

2006-09-02 [Mister Saint]: *shrugs* Dunno.
