JenEllen BS: Thank You Mudcat, You Did It Again.. (42) BS: Thank You Mudcat, You Did It Again.. 01 Sep 04

....alternately known as the Revenge of the Son of the Shite-Free Tavern

I haven't been around much lately, but it's been for good reasons. Since some Mudcatters have been partially responsible for my recent joys, and I'm a firm believer that no good deed should go unpunished, I decided to come in here. I'm going to clean off a few tables, break Bert's credit card out from behind the In Case of Emergency Break Glass and set up a few for some people who really deserve it.

For SINSULL, I'm going to invent a new drink called THE GOLDEN SEAL. Her ideas and quick thinking (not to mention her quest to knit sweaters for every lobster on the East Coast) made our classroom OscarParty a complete and total hit.

For our Leej, something amber, neat and in a clean glass. You've inspired a classroom of new writers, and doubled my enrollment for next quarter. I don't know whether to kiss you or kill you, but keep writing regardless.

For Guy Wolff, a bottomless pint for sheer Mudcatability. I asked permission to use "A" song, and in return you offer a handful. It's really the best that Mudcat can be. Thanks.

For PeterT, the new Stan sends an Orvieto Sling. All of the tips and tricks of the trade you offered served to help double enrollment for the acting class as well. Stand over by Leej until the firing squad is ready.

For MizKat, a pot of tea and a huge hug for talking me down off the ceiling more than once over the quarter. You know what you do, keep doing it.

For Little Hawk, JTS and CarolC, Mousethief, Amos, Gareth, and all the other Literary Buds who sparked a story or twelve over the years, rootbeer floats all the way around. I showed a few of the links to my students and next quarter they are going to write their own "Mudcat Story"---hey, we invented a genre. Who knew.

And finally, for Rick Fielding, a huge fishbowl-snifter full of Angel Fluff, umbrellas and sparklers. When I'd first mentioned doing something like these classes, years ago, Rick had the foresight to tell me a little story. Something like "Once upon a time there was this woman named Heather..." that basically boiled down to "You might as well do what makes you happy, 'cause your worst day doing that is going to be better than your best day now..." How right you were.
