Default Gee, Why So Blue?


*slips quietly in*

*clears throat*

Hello. Many of you have already noticed that I've gone blue. Yes, I have donned the blue robes. No, it wasn't an April Fool's Day joke, though it was funny that it coincided with that particular day.

So, three cheers, two cookies, and a slap across the back of the head to the first person who can guess the three reasons why I have indeed gone blue.

And no cheating. The other staff know, but they aren't divulging.

There's a lot of work to admin duties, so I'm guessing you gave up the red robes to concentrate more on writing your novel.

Either that, or you've decided that red doesn't go very well with your dog.

I'm clueless! How about a hint?

Now, everybody line up and get ready to bow and curtsy in praise of the great Devon, who has been an absolutely rockin' administrator and will fill the Senior Moderator office just as well, we have no doubt!

Hey, how did Daedelus get it so quickly? I thought we said no cheating, Devon!

Red goes horribly with golden retrievers. Ick.

Anyone else want to guess?

Because you like to keep things even? Three admins simply won't do when there's only one senior moderator!

* You think you look good in blue.
* Blue doesn't make your a$$ look big.
* Being senior gets you a discount.

Nice try, Paco! Lol.

*hums to self still*

I'll give you a hint. One of you has already gotten the main reason. Now what are the other two?

Well, I know, but it would be cheating to say, wouldn't it? Don't worry, I'll keep schtum!
I know.

It usually is, but it wasn't for me with HoiLei by my side, and then Winterbite.



*hums, rocks back on heels*

I am this close to using a tank emoticon on you!

Hmm... You want to spend more time with your kids?

Hmm . . . do I?

So what was the main reason, and who got it correct?

Nope. Check again. You got one of them. Who got the main reason?

Are you trying to cook us? *eyes NW suspiciously*

Daedalus?

Daedalus?
Yes! *claps hands* So, three cheers for Daedalus for getting the main reason. Hip, hip, hurray! Hip, hip, hurray! Hip, hip, hurray!

And to you, NW, for getting the second reason.

Now, what's the third?

*steps back and hums, smiling*

You want more time to step back and hum, smiling? I imagine there isn't any of that in your adminy duties.

No, but that's quite funny.

*hums again, even louder this time*

Pfft. You're the one trying to cook us.

Actually, maybe it would be a better idea to cook El and Castiel. Green food and all that.

Argh! Being an admin was taking away time that you could be spending working on your spoon collection?!

Pssh. Nah. I've only clawed one ear off so far. That hardly qualifies me as crazy--I mean, look at Van Gogh. He did it, too, and he's still famous.

I wasn't aware you had three reasons... I only remember two! *HoiLei sniffs own armpits suspiciously* It wasn't me, was it? What aren't you telling me?!

Now, now, Devon. You know I outrank you, right? *taps foot impatiently*

Regardless, I'm very happy to have worked closely with you as admin, and I'm glad you're continuing as staff. *gives Devon a hug for all her stellar work*

Thank you, HoiLei, and thank you, too, Winterbite. (I'd forgotten to thank you earlier) It was a pleasure serving as an admin by both of your sides.

Now, now, Devon. You know I outrank you, right? *taps foot impatiently*
*Yawn* Hmm? What's that? *blink, blink*

I wasn't aware you had three reasons... I only remember two! *HoiLei sniffs own armpits suspiciously* It wasn't me, was it? What aren't you telling me?!


And again.

Pssh. Nah. I've only clawed one ear off so far. That hardly qualifies me as crazy--I mean, look at Van Gogh. He did it, too, and he's still famous.
He clawed an ear off? I thought he cut it off.

Third reason. Come on, people.

Hahahaha! No.

It does have everything to do with anything and everything and nothing all at the same time.
