Spider Invasion Averted
The horrifying possibility of giant five foot tall spiders
invading SpinDizzy was narrowly escaped by residents this
week. News of the possible invasion was mentioned in
passing in the Rose Garden, which got the attention of several
folks. It was rumored that the home Cye, local fifty foot
tall Vixen might be the source of the invasion, and several
plans were discussed concerning how to deal with this apparently
Cye, hearing the conversation, was somewhat confused by the
discussion, as she had seen no giant spiders around her home, in
fact, had only seen one or two bugs at all in her domicile,
which she dispatched with a giant can of Raid. When
someone expressed amazement at the size of the can of bug spray,
Cye casually noted that both it, and the 'giant spiders' were
regular sized to her. With news that the spiders had been
sprayed, talk of the invasion soon turned to the silent Guest,
and was soon forgotten
Makes Appearance In Rose Garden
Rown, local Centaur, has been mercilessly
demanding that local residents hand over their holiday presents
to him. Aggressivly demading that folks give him their
gifts, Rown explained that something happened to him but he
doesn't know what. He said he was sitting around the square the
other day and someone hit him from behind. When he awoke he had
this compulsion to take everyone's presents!
Gilead, local Otter, was relived of a
shiny lump of coal by the Grinchtaur, but all he was able to get
from Mouser, local Fursnake was a noogie. The fact that it
usually takes hands or paws to give someone a noogie, was
overlooked by Rown as he continued his quest for presents.
Mouser claimed he couldn't give Rown his presents anyway, as he
had turned them into fake objects to save data space.
Cye, local 50 foot Vixen suggested
stepping on Rown, but decided not to as she would end up with
stinky stuff between her toes.Rown
said, "I'm too big for you to do that. Besides, I'm not
responsible for my actions. :-p" Cye
then noted her desc. She 50ft tall! n.n Rown
says, "Uh huh! The bigger they are the harder they step on
you. You can keep your presents. :-p"
Rown then made a few disparaging remark
about Santa, including, that
the Reindeer are all homosexuals, that
he shot three of them this year. Rown
also said that the reason Rudolph's nose is red is because he's
stone drunk all the time! He also claimed that last year,
reindeer droppings from the sky were the number one cause of
accidents on Christmas eve! Rown also noted that Mrs.
Clause is really Santa himself in drag, that the elf women have
to work the strip district in Pittsburgh to make up for the low
pay that Santa gives his elves, that Santa is anti Union and
forces his elves to work overtime for minimum wage and that Santa
forces Mrs. Clause to carry the garbage out in her Christmas
sack! Rown added that elves are responsible for power
outages during Christmas. They often sneak into power companies
and turn the power off for fun. They get drunk on eggnog
and play with the switches. :-)
After more disparaging remarks
concerning Santa and his organization that I can't repeat here,
Rown turned the magic wand he used on Mouser on himself and was miraculously
Local Centaur Makes The Grade
Mavra, local Centaur, after two years of hard work received her
Masters of Aerospace Engineering Degree Saturday, December 15,
2001. She looked quite striking in her cap and gown,
although fitting one to complement her Equine aspect was a
Now that she has her degree, the next step is finding a job,
and after that, hopefully the long delayed wedding between Mavra
and I will finally take place. None the less, congratulations
are in order for the lovely Mavra!

||Submitting a story

Most any type of story or article will be accepted.
Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or
flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of
SpinDizzy. Things that occur in public areas are fair
game. The things reported don't have to have actually
happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but
make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of
interaction that we have. These are pretty broad
guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
