NOTICE:

With the competition starting in less than 48 hours, BE SURE to have a team avatar displayed or you will NOT receive any points for your posts. As an optional theme, the Noble Owls can band together and use "cool colors" (e.g. blues, silvers, purples, etc... ) to stand strong, presenting a united front.

Good luck, and may the games begin!!!

Knock-knock!
Who's there?
Owls.
Owls who?
That's right; they do! :D


=)) I got a kick out of that.

I found my Owl avatar. :) I'm afraid it doesn't reflect the "cool colors" theme that much. :ymblushing: (For those unaware, it's Owlowiscious from the new My Little Pony show. ;) And yes, the name is as fun to try to say as it is to read! ;)) )

Why, a good eve to you all!

I happened to glance at my calendar today and, much to my surprise, I discovered that tomorrow is the day! Great scot!

Well. 'Tis lovely to be on this parliament with you fine foul, I note some that were allies last year and some that were foe, and some that are new. 'Twill be most most honoured pleasure to meet with you all. :D

Rather regrettably, as you can see, I am painfully lacking in the avatar department at this particular moment in time, so I shall fly off now to fix this conundrum. *returns, flying in to settle on her perch* And now, as you see, the problem is fixed. And tomorrow, the posting begins!

Fly on! To-Who!

I've changed my avatar to an owl now. I hope it's sufficient for the competition. The owl is small, but still visable...

Ryadian, your avatar is adorable! :D Though I have to say, it's been about 5 minutes now, and I still can't say it's name. :P

Well then, since cupcakes have been approved, then I shall provide the refreshments :D

I hope you like oreo eyes. :P

Can't wait for tomorrow! May the best team win! :)

The competition opens in just a few hours! Such a to-do! To-who!

Whilst navigating the forum I've noticed that the Noble Mice have a variety of cute and winsome avatars. I'm glad to see that the Owls have responded with some cute ones of their own, along with some nice graphics of the majestic creatures that owls are.

Let us rise to the challenge ahead this month, and may the best team win! (And while Owls may be natural predators of Mice, we wouldn't attack Talking Mice ;) )

Thanks for those owl-themed cupcakes, GentleWarrior! They shall provide strength for the battle ahead.

And fellow Owls, forgive me.... I've cost us some points because all day, my brain wanted to tell me that the 2PP meant that you could only do 2 posts per page.... instead of referring to the spacing :/ I will not be making this error again, but I will make those points up.

As part of my official duties as a marshal I am passing along the following:

As a marshal, would you pass along a thank-you to Movie Aristotle? :) I think I may switch avatars, actually; this one looks a lot cooler than mine. :)

Thank-you, Movie Aristotle! Those look very cool and appropriate to the tournament. A noble mouse, indeed.

We do indeed! (Those noble mice better be careful not to creep into our ruined tower headquarters! ;)) )

stargazer wrote:(And while Owls may be natural predators of Mice, we wouldn't attack Talking Mice ;) )

Oh dear, what have I implied?! That if you Noble Mice creep into our headquarters we would EAT YOU?! Of course, stargazer, you are right: we would never dream of attacking Talking Mice and I'm so ashamed that I ever had the thought that we would! I guess I was just thinking of owls being natural predators of mice; I totally forgot that you guys were Talking Mice. You are our opponents, not our prey and I am dreadfully sorry that I had at first considered the latter as an option! :ymblushing: I will do so no more!! ;)

Now don't misunderstand me; I still want the Owls to win, and my apology in the above matter makes me no less competitive. We will definitely not eat you, but we will beat you! (I hope!) ;))

Ryadian, about my owl joke, wrote: =)) I got a kick out of that.

I'm glad you did! It's kind of cute, isn't it? :p :)

Thanks, TheGentleWarrior, for those cupcakes! They're adorable!! :D

And thank-you to Movie Aristotle for those beautiful avatars for each of us! How kind of you to make those for everyone here despite the fact that you're on the opposing team. As you can see, I'm not using mine now, but who knows? - I might switch to it as the month goes on. Thanks again! :)

To all my fellow Owls, I apologize for my absents yesterday and most of today! Something came up unexpectedly but all is back to normal now :)
