On the lock screen.  Sigh.  Tried holding down the power button for over 40 seconds.  Nada.  Leaving it off power with cover off to see if the battery will run down.

Maybe I will have to get a new Oasis (saying this loudly as I type so Calypso the Oasis can hear it).

I have my starter and a gallon of milk, got cute little yogurt jars on the way.

Writers' Cafe / Welcome to our newest moderator!

In the thread, "Thank a KBoards Member," aimeeeasterling said this:

I wanted to thank Phoenix, but that's already been covered. So, instead, I'll thank Evenstar. I sometimes get turned off by the drama of forums, and I really appreciate her level-headed, thoughtful approach to life.

So do we.  Which is why we extended an invitation to her to be part of the moderation staff.  After weeks of negotiations, we finally agreed on what color her cattle prod is going to be and now we'd like to officially announce that Evenstar will be a moderator here in the Writers' Cafe.

Congrats, Evenstar!  We'll see you in the smoke-filled admin caves!

Before Michael Keaton, before Christian Bale, there was Adam West...dead at 88.  Apparently, he died yesterday of leukemia.
