*pulls self out of a hat*
« on: July 16, 2008, 07:23:52 pm »
Oh me oh my, look at this! I logged onto the forums a few nights ago only to discover that the modfolk had named me a watcher! Thank you so much, all of you! (: I've been wanting to help out around here for a while, but until recently I was too stressed out to even handle it; now, though, I'm really looking forward to contributing a bit more to Furtopia beyond my frequent and occasionally deranged posts. ;)

I was also told that I now get to create my very own thread in this here subforum, and great Scott, who can pass up a chance like that??

About me! I am a rabbit. My name is Arbutus (pronounced ARE-byu-tus). In keeping with the Watership Down universe, I am named after a small flower. I am the ringleader of the Lapine World Domination Front, a revolutionary organization which aims to support rabbits worldwide in shaking off their chains and revolting against the tyranny of the predatorial races. I also have a pretty awesome coat. 8)

On the RL side of things (lame), I am 21, male, a recent college graduate (from Williams College, up in the mountains of Massachusetts), and am currently employed writing questions for standardized tests, which is actually a pretty awesome job! Who knew? I hope to join the US Foreign Service one day and work for the State Department as a diplomat-- that's what I'm currently working towards. Things I love include history, linguistics, learning foreign languages, traveling, hiking, reading amazing books, and most importantly, music, around which my life sorta revolves. Oh, and rabbits. :orbunny:

That is me! Now it is your turn! Ask me questions-- about furry, RL, personality, friends, music, books, dreams, embarrassing and possibly incriminating stories, whatever. Anything is fair game!

I would like at this moment to remind predators everywhere that rabbits are far more tender, meatier, and flavorful than mere gamey, connective-tissue-filled rats.
(I am of course saying that in the spirit of self-preservation, and certainly not to throw you off the trail of the Great Rat Conspiracy, which clearly does not exist).

Afterthought:  Also dibs on the hat.

Hey, I plan on keeping that coat until I die of old age. You can't have it yet! And no trying to get me eaten, either-- I'm a watcher, I can report you for that. ;)

Well, it did just spring out of a magical hat-- we have no idea where it came from or what powers it has. It could turn us all into chocolate, for all we know. It could turn me into a...

...into an Easter bunny...

In that event, I shall wreak mighty, emo-laden, drama-llama revenge in my LJ! 
I shall spread vast lengthly tales full of flimsy half-truths garnered from situations that might have at one point had to do with a friend of a friend of someone who heard it from someone else on another forum, about how you reported me for NO GOOD REASON! 
(I thank everyone in advance for their support)

And I still call dibs on your coat after the predators nom-nom you.
(No, Alexandre, I do not agree to the auction, as I called dibs, so nyah)

Neither did I until just now! But now all of a sudden I have a little wicker basket and infinity chocolate eggs, and I don't know what other conclusions to draw from my data. In the meantime, here, have an egg! *gives*

Hmmm, this thread is awfully quiet.

*suddenly pops out of the hat, soaking wet and with a carrot in each hand*

O hai! I forgot I had this thread. :-[ Hello my lovelies! Oh my, how long have you all been standing out here? Let me get some chairs for you...

*reaches back in and begins pulling out soaking wet armchairs one by one until everyone is seated, then pulls out a podium and stands behind it, clearing his throat*

Now. Thank you for all gathering here today. I'm sure you're all wondering if you're going to see any changes around this thread now that I've become a moderator on Furtopia. Now, I'm not legally allowed to give you all mod powers and let you go on a banning rampage-- you know, legal issues and all that, plus the forum software won't allow it. But I do want to reward you for, er, standing over there in the corner for the past five months. I am therefore happy to announce that I will totally be giving out superhero powers to anyone who wants them. ^_^

All right then! You first!

*BRRRPTZAP*

Congratulations, Lawrence! You now have the power of levitation, extremely useful for escaping traffic jams and bonesawing your foes from above. :) Use it wisely!

Also, you are now soaking wet. Sorry about that, I just had to fish this wand out of the indoor pool. I hope it still works right....
