    I'm still hoping to host the Writers Workshop sometime around the end of March, but there may be a significant delay.

    My 83-year-old MIL has been very ill for several days, and nearly passed away Sunday night. She has improved considerably since, but her prognosis remains uncertain.

All of us except my mother also watched TDA. (She didn’t because she’d had all she could take of Chris, and because she had see one fart joke too many.)

    I have been on the main TD wiki for almost a year, albeit under a different username and with only a handful of edits, but I only became aware of the fanfic wiki a couple of months ago.

    At that time, I had been working on Total Drama Island, by Gilbert and Sullivan (“TDI-G&S”, common…
