Can you read this? Anyone hear me?

Hello?

Say something.

Okay, what you’re doing there is jumping. Uh, you just jumped.

But never mind; say apple. “Apple.”

No, that’s Greg, you just said “Greg”.

…close enough.

If you CAN read this, go read this. I’m certain the site will be fine soon. Or clicky-click the picture. Enjoy yourself and I’m sure we’ll all be just fine in a jiffy. *

    You are so very weird.

    • Kylie Sturgess

      Yes, but I love you – and as The Bloggess says in that post about bloggers:

      You are amazing. You are relevant. Your work is worth protecting and standing up for.

      And I’m very happy that the FTB tech crew are making sure that happens! :D

    A jiffy is how long it takes to pop popcorn. Definitely an American thing.

    • Kylie Sturgess

      I haven’t done popcorn in ages! I’ll have to rectify that and test out the ‘jiffy’ thing. :)

      This is the kind of madness americans get for using imperial mesurements instead of metric!

    Not strictly American. My Mum would say ‘in a jiffy’ and she’s Welsh and I’m Australian. Old, though.

    Alethea, the “American thing” was a jokey reference to Jiffy Pop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgF8jVJf5nA

    There aren’t a lot of countries that can’t figure out how to make popcorn unless it’s prepackaged.

    • Kylie Sturgess

      POPCORN COMES UNPACKAGED!?!?

      • sithrazer

        Stephanie is just pulling your leg, of course it all comes prepackaged. A husk is just mother natures way of packaging popcorn.

          Much like the humble plastic bag
