Redsaid Officially Welcomes The Esteemed Members Of The Lotus Fleet

| | Comments (4) | TrackBacks (0)
I'm still utterly astonished when people stumble upon this here obscure and highly neglected little blog and... gasps!... actually read it. As if that isn't incredibly enough, sometimes (okay, rarely... okay, never! This is the first time ever) people even ask permission to use something I've written and subject their own readers/members to the torture of reading it too!

I received the following e-mail earlier this evening, and I have not been able to stop laughing since:

Good evening Redsaid!

I am Chief Petty Officer Storm Windfall of Lotus Fleet, a Roleplaying Star Trek site, where we while away the time for the release of Star Trek Online, the game.

I am surfing the net for interesting titbits to post on our forums, when I happened on your site.

I never laughed that hard! You wrote i quite well and I could place myself in your shoes, not having that much Star Trek knowledge!

May I, please, please, PLEASE post it on our forums?  I would like to share it with the members, it was so funny!

Thank you for your time

PS: Pay us a visit, anytime!

Of course I said yes! I mean, wow, I'm so flattered! So, all hail to all the esteemed members of The Lotus Fleet and welcome to this incredibly obscure little blog. It is, in fact, SO obscure, that it is officially part of the world wide cobweb - that dark, damp, forgotten and largely ignored corner of the Internet where all forgotten websites come to die.

Oh, in case you're wondering? The post Chief Petty Officer Storm Windfall of the Lotus Fleet (I love saying that!) is so interested in, is this one...

Thank you for the kind words! Lotus Fleet enjoyed it! It was fun not being the only noob for a change!

By the way, you DO own copyright, so I had to ask permission first..

Chief Petty Officer Storm Windfall! No, really, I have to thank you and the rest of the Lotus Fleet! I've been feeling a bit low (specifically about writing) and so your lovely e-mail really cheered me up immensely! I was truly flattered as well. It's not every day that one gets (Okay, that I get) to hear that people actually want to read (and share!) something you've written! So thank you very much for your lovely feedback. I've checked it out on the forum and was very thrilled to see it there.

Oh, and please convey my sincerest apologies to the rest of the esteemed Fleet for the fact that I got the spelling of 'Vulcan' wrong. I do realise that this is almost akin to blasphemy!

Having only been made aware of this fine and entertaining website, I can say that all the way from the United States I was laughing hysterically over this little blog.....oh wait....I'm a GEEK......sigh oh well i guess i would rather be that then a dork....(do not look up the definition, I implore you).

At any rate thank you very much for you kind words about Lotus Fleet it is always a pleasure to see people world wide viewing Lotus Fleet and I hope that for what it is, it helps bring many more cultures, and people together.....I know this blog has for me, SO....into my bookmarks list you go and ill see you another day!

Fleet Admiral Nova! As you can see, I have been so star struck (geddit?) by your "Commanding Officer" title and you (and it) gracing this here humble little blog, I have been utterly unable to respond to your comment until now! Okay, that and then there's also the possibility that I might just be the world's biggest procrastinator. But that's a far more unpleasant explanation, so I prefer to go with the first one.

I shall try my best to live up to the honour of being among your bookmarked sites. Life back on my home planet is somewhat demanding though. Sometimes my eyes still glaze over and I dream about my life as an outlawed alien back in your home country... I miss it, desperately. (Not the outlawed bit, obviously.) Please kiss the ground for me? (Well, unless there are worms in the vicinity. Then you can merely air kiss it.)

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
