I just realized something. We did 22 blocks, but there are only 21 blocks posted in the Completed Fiver Blocks thread.

And it's not that bad, Zeke. It's been only four months, not five. :wink:

If you start from the bottom and read up, this thread sounds a lot like word assosciation :lol: I actually had to check what thread I was in :wink:

Sounds like fun! Can anyone be on the committee? I'm not quite sure how this works...

Hmmm, after a four-month gap there will probably be people who don't know what FBC is. I'll make an explanation thread and Sticky it.

Woo hoo!

Now let's actually post to the FBC with funny block ideas when it comes back, O.K.?

'Cuz, ya know, we weren't always doin' that...

Looking forward to it. Thanks, Long Suffering Zeke. Hey, new name! We should call him LSZ from now on. Except [people will think he's some kind of new hallucinogen...

You know, for a moment there I thought you were making wordplay on "Czech", and like me, would like nothing more than to keep a harem of cute Central/Eastern European boy-toys...

...then I re-read your post carefully and realized belatedly that it's not always spelt "cheque" by other people. :roll:

Wait, are you British or American? You've always seemed British to me. And who's your avatar now?

That is, of course, Chris Ecclestone, Doctor version 9.01.

Zeke, there are people outside the UK that are fans of Doctor Who too, you know. :wink:

We don't talk about those people though. Because they are sick and very disturbed.

:P

To quote Shaggy: "Zoinks!"

Of course I could still be located in New York City but be British (some Brits do emigrate here for some reason). But yes, I admit it, I am American (sigh).

New avatar is Christopher Eccleston, the Ninth Doctor (FAQ on the new Doctor for those interested: http://gallifreyone.com/newseriesfaq.php). The American fans are probably more rabid than the British fansówe're all waiting with great anxiety to see what channel picks up the new series (latest rumor is Sci Fi channel). I've loved Doctor Who for ages, and a few other British shows. After all, most Britcoms are ten times smarter than Friends, and most episodes of Doctor Who are at least twice as smart as ... um, nevermind.

"always seemed British" Shall I take that as a compliment? I can certainly understand a Canadian assuming that someone with a brain would have to be British rather than American..
