Yikes, sorry for keeping you waiting today, folks. What can I say? Zebra Girl is like karma. It works slowly sometimes.

Hey, that's a pretty neat little phrase. Almost sounds slick enough to get me off the hook. I should remember that! Someone write that down.

Incidentally, I hope you all had an appropriate Friday the 13th. Like, perhaps something bad happened (but not REALLY bad because we're friends and I generally wish you well), so you can just shrug your shoulders and say, "Well that's Friday the 13th for you!" Because I'd like to think that the notion of an unlucky day will be reinforced by anecdotes told over time.

Myths are the glue that hold us together, right? And it's always best to scapegoat points in time or space than living people.

...Ooh! Before you go. Listen. Just over ten years ago, a film maker named Bren MacDonald and his crew put together a short film based on Zebra Girl. It's been a decade (wow), and some people seem not to have seen it, so it seemed like a good time to remind people about some of the amazing things that folks have done. I really, really, REALLY need to bring the fan work sections back. Really.

Zandra's more efficient. She's still sort of tending to her blog, even in chains!

So that's all the stuff today.

I think it'd be rather funny if Becky turned into a werewolf then. ;-)

Yeah: one of my checkbooks disappeared on Friday, so that's par for the course. 7X=e

As for chicken, it seems to be a prerequisite for werewolves: see Donna Barr's "Afterdead".

Does having one of my fillings fall out count?

I'm hoping. The guys are taking it pretty chill. Eating pizza when you're still on a vampire kill list?

I managed to lock myself out of my house with only the clothes on my back and my wallet this Friday the 13th. Fortunately I was able to call my parents and they searched online and called a locksmith to my house. But still, it can be a scary thing to realise while out in the January cold just how much you rely on your smart phone to do things like remember phone numbers.

Mr. Casual

Not only a Friday the 13th, but one with a wolf moon, too. Pretty special for spooks and spookables, I'd say.

Interesting to hear that Crystal has clothes-magic. I wonder if that'll come up in some way other than just Wally's pants.

And with a single line of dialogue, Joe never had to answer werewolf nudity questions ever again.

This feels exactly like many roll playing sessions I've been in. "Hurry guys! Let's do that thing!"
Aaaaaand everyone's distracted with random things and doing nothing.
