I would like to add my voice the rowdy chorus of Thanks Yous to Rog for another bout of productive insanity. NiaD is truly one of the best things that happens all year!

And kudos on this year's book title -- which I think breaks new ground in the annals of NiaD. Things could go anywhere from here!

I am pretty stoked about the role that my last paragraph plays in my version of the book.

BEST UNINTENDED SEGUE?:

I haven't yet looked at everything, but could this be the best unintended segue in the book (bloodbath spoiler alert):

At the end of the chapter before mine, the chapter author opted to have a certain character, without warning, start slicing people's heads of with remarkable ease. Then, at the beginning of my chapter, the scene continues (written in all innocence of the foregoing) with that character saying, "Finally, some privacy!" :twisted:

P.S. Now that my brain has cooled down, what a golden opportunity to introduce a new persona named 'Jaysen'. How did I miss that? What was I thinking?! Surely someone else did the dirty work. Haven't spotted it though.

Where did I miss me getting pulled into the story?!?
Jaysen

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 24 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09
