My red card arrived in the mail today. It's been a long, long time in coming, and I'm not talking about the speed of the administration, or even the postal service. ;\)

Looking forward to finally seeing all of you downstairs. Fortunately, I expect my name will look great in orange.

Let me be the first to say, it's about time! \:D

I've told you in private before, how much I value your contributions, but now I'll make it public. I am very glad that you decided to throw in your lot with the Devil's Party.

I can't wait to see you downstairs, and that is no joke.

I think few around here deserve the red card as much as you do, Chess. Your posts are always frightfully thought provoking, and you come off as being very wise, and intelligent.

Congrats!

Mine finally came as well! Congrats Chess!

I'm quite excited really, it's like coming upon a day when you know you made a great life decision and you're just beaming with anticipation at the things you're going to be doing and the new experiences that will follow from it.

It's just a complete reinforcement for who I am, another thing to be proud of, and something else that happily alienates me from mediocrity.

It's the dawn of a new day!

As a non hard-science oriented person, I have valued your clear explanations on matters that I have little knowledge about. See you downstairs.

I thought this was going to be some retarded thread saying, "Okay guys. List everything you like that's orange!"

But I know you're a lot better than that. ;\)

Holy cow, I'm being lovebombed!

My sincerest thanks to all of you for the welcomes. It's the wisdom and wit that I've been seeing from the CoS members on this board, year after year, that finally pushed me over the edge to take the plunge. I'm deeply honored to be accepted so warmly. Thank you.

Excellent! I think that Central probably did a whole batch of us at once -- besides us there's at least one more on the board whose card arrived recently too. So, Hail Batchmates!

Well hey, if anybody feels like talking about how much they love traffic cones, I'm in far too good a mood to jump on them for it.

And finally, a quick note to whoever it was at Central that picked out the postage stamps -- You crack me up.

YAY Chess & Wolf Landon!!!

I got mine over the weekend as well. First I did a few cartwheels then I did a little

I agree with the "happy alienation" sentiment. I am a people-person, but recently I've been far more selective with who I spend time with, even opting to stay home alone at times. I didn't expect that recognizing myself as a Satanist would be so life-changing (on many different levels), but I'm the happiest I've ever been. ... and I've been fortunate enough to "meet" some really cool and super intelligent people. ;\)

Hail Satan!
