Good day, all!!

I am a Co-Mod for in_congress!

What is that you ask? Well, it's a RP community dedicated to the musical and movie, 1776.

I am posted here to pimp and send out a plea for members. We at in_congress have lost a great number of characters to RL and//or disinterest, whatever....so I have come to let you know we have some characters up for adoption.

Benjamin Franklin
Roger Sherman
Abigail Adams
Martha Jefferson
James Wilson
Dr. Lyman Hall
Samuel Adams
Stephen Hopkins
George Washington


If you are interested, check out our profile. All the rules and information is there and if you should have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask...you can post here, if you like.

Up for RP-ing 1776-style?
Come join us!

x-posted on every 1776 community.

Whee! It's the 4th of July and to bovver for a little more activity here celebrate our independence from England (really though, it wouldn't have been so bad if we were still British, now would it? *hearts*), I thought it'd be a good idea to watch Thomas Jefferson penning the Declaration of Independence.

Sesame Street style. xD

Here you are lads and light a few fireworks for the boys in blue now, will you? ^^

I dare say, is there no James Cook at all among you? Well. Look's like I'll have to take the part then. I've also got a little quirky tidbit of Captain Cook's for all of you to dawdle at. =P

A charming legend has been making the rounds for many years that the word "kangaroo" derives from an aboriginal expression meaning "I don't understand you." It seems Cook was browsing around Australia one day with his naturalist buddy Sir Joseph Banks, when he happened to espy a funny-looking critter with a pouch. Inquiring of a nearby local as to the name of the animal, he received the reply "kangaroo," which was intended to signify "say what?" Cook somewhat stupidly construed this as the name of the beast, and we have continued to suffer for his (adorable) ignorance down to the present day.

Cute, but is it true? I dunno--the actual aboriginal words for the marsupial in question sound nothing like "kangaroo," which seems to have sprung into existence just about the time of Cook's explorations. However, slangmeister Eric Partridge declares that kangaroo is in fact of aboriginal origin and means "jumping quadruped."

Someday we definitely have to get this straightened out.

Brilliant idea! [01 Apr 2006|04:29pm]

I never fail to be impressed with where my procrastination leads me, especially this time! Anyway, I must say that it is a pleasure to become part of your esteemed company. It has been a welcome relief from the tedium of writing dispatches, which neither flag nor fail until the 20th of April when I embark for Quebec.

Regardless, it is very nice to meet you all (though I believe I know a couple of you already...)


I am, etc.,

James Wolfe

Colonel
His Majesty's 67th Regiment of Foot

Actually, I'm a History student at the University of Calgary and I do 18th century re-enactment (French and Indian War and American Rev. --> 58th Regiment of Foot and Tarleton's British Legion) on the side. I never imagined that so many other people obsessed about the 18th century as well! This is AWESOME. And I really am writing essays until the 20th when the James Wolfe Tour 2006 will be happening. Can't wait!!!

Cheers,

Alison

There was silence.

My dear friends, I would like to wish each and every one of you a blest and happy Christmas.

Happiness is not being pained in body or troubled in mind. Relax: remember that this holiday season!

P.S.: Did you know...that if you google search the word "failure" and click the Im feeling lucky button, the George W. Bush presidential page comes up?

I do now!

Lord Wellington [23 Nov 2005|01:08am]

[ mood | dorky ]

Good day to you, gentlemen! Oh - pray remain seated.

My name is Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington, Field Marshal of the Royal Army. To keep it simple, I'm the one who makes sure England doesn't lose her face against the Frogs. I've made it my special goal to give Boney a damn good thrashing and by God, I will enjoy it. The man and his abstruse revolutionary ideas have too long been a thorn in Europe's side.

*lifts glass* To your health! And a quick defeat of Boney's armies!

JOIN naval_like REALLY.

Huzzah and Welcome!!
naval_like is a community for a RPG of all things Navy.

Is this possible?
I assure you, it is.

Just pick a character from your favorite naval movie, book, or tv show, and assume that character. It's as simple as that.

Oh, and of course we are all right with slash.
In fact, we welcome it.

The rules:
1.) No bashing other people's Naval kink.
2.) Your first post must contain a picture of your character and a very brief discription.
3.) When you post, put your character's name in the "subject" box. If you don't we won't know who you are. How would you like it to think that Jack Sparrow just debauched Mr. Calamy? ....not a bad idea, but really.
4.) Have...well, what is the word....FUN.

Ausin Powers writing the Declaration of Independence

The Ancient Romans being on SNL

The Berlin wall being attacked by dinosaurs (I think that was on the list...if it was not pardon me)
