Now, now, I miss them, too, dear, but it’s like moving into a new house (remember when we changed over from UBB to VBulletin, many moons ago?)–we have to give the admins time to get the water, gas, phone, and electric turned on before we start nagging them about the drapes that give an interesting “underwater” effect in the living room, and the tacky linoleum in the kitchen. (Can you say “butt ugly”?)
We’ve only been living in the house since Sunday night. I know it seems like forever, but it’s really only been three working days–Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. And even Godlike Administrators have to sleep sometimes.
I am assuming that one day–one bright sunny day–we will all suddenly notice that the smilies have mysteriously changed back to their normal colors and once again there will be music in the presence of Iluvatar…
[er, Tuba? I know you’re busy installing the new bathtub, but could I just have a word with you about the Elvis Memorial Flowerbed in the front yard?..]
