sapphire: Work of the month polls are up! Prose and poetry. Jul 27, 2014 13:26:54 GMT -6
sapphire: This guy. Jul 26, 2014 0:44:57 GMT -6
Angelica: The what robot?? Jul 25, 2014 15:03:02 GMT -6
sapphire: Oh hey, have you guys seen the video of the self-righting robot? It looked kind of like a spider when it was walking. Jul 24, 2014 23:48:11 GMT -6 *
sapphire: Watch out, Zoom - they're watching you! Jul 24, 2014 23:29:37 GMT -6
Zoom: or a fish. fish are uncomplicated creatures Jul 24, 2014 10:07:22 GMT -6
Zoom: Although actually I bet it would be really easy to program something to act like a bug Jul 24, 2014 10:06:53 GMT -6
Zoom: That crossed my mind! Jul 24, 2014 10:06:36 GMT -6
Angelica: Hehe. Maybe it wasn't a real bug, but a robot that was sent to spy on you. :P Jul 24, 2014 1:57:35 GMT -6
Zoom: I don't even know what kind of bug it was, I'm kind of disturbed by that actually. Jul 22, 2014 21:25:09 GMT -6
Zoom: Guys, some kind of bug just skittered out across my desk, sat and looked at me for a while, and skittered back. I mean SKITTERED, that's the perfect word for it. Anyway I did some Googling and apparently you can train praying mantises. Jul 22, 2014 21:24:41 GMT -6
Angelica: Thanks! :D Jul 15, 2014 21:53:10 GMT -6
Zoom: Hey, happy birthday! Jul 15, 2014 21:18:05 GMT -6
the Red Dragon: Happy birthday. :D Jul 15, 2014 20:26:38 GMT -6
sapphire: Happy Birthday, Angelica! Jul 15, 2014 18:17:58 GMT -6
Angelica: Today's my birthday! :D :P Jul 15, 2014 14:28:05 GMT -6
sapphire: That it is. Here's July's Swift Scribbles prompt. Jul 14, 2014 22:19:27 GMT -6
Zoom: They would have had to either completely cut the film programs, or drop their budget to the point where it was basically worthless. SO happy Jul 9, 2014 18:00:30 GMT -6
sapphire: Whoa, that's incredible. Jul 9, 2014 17:50:42 GMT -6
