Years ago, fortune threw the Gimp Squad-myself, Binkleberry, and kimmie- together.

Ever since then, we have moved about, whether in shadows or the light of day, trying to make the world a quirkier, more thoughtful, funnier, and generally more awesome place. It was only right for us to realize such a high calling by combining our powers for good within the wondrous creative paradise that is Moustache May.

While it is not by any means my final frontier, being a small part of Moustache May for its last year has been a huge honor and great experience for me- as it would be for any aspiring superhero.

Each one of you-Mayors, Staches, and Lurkers alike, has proven yourself to be a great creative mind, a superb cheerleader, and a surprising confidante, in turn.

Your artistry has [in many cases, spontaneously] baffled, surprised, horrified, and otherwise caused me to collapse into giggle fits.

As my "parting shot" [see what I did there?] I present a tribute to my favorite superhero, and the Original Late Night Lurker. . . in honor of that humble band of miscreants known as the Late Night Crew.

You are all brilliant. You are all Mayor Material. You are already dearly missed.

It was a distinct pleasure creepily observing all of you from afar, and a rare privilege to sneak just a little closer to a few of you. Thank you all for everything.

All my Love,

You don't know how honored I am to have the Gimp Squad on my side. Thanks for allowing me to remain part of the crew, despite my recent loss of stache powers. Fear not, though, for my GingerBeard powers will be in full force come autumn!

i can't wait, SenatorJohnson.
and, lurkingood, you have no idea how much it pains me not to be able to sign off with those words. then again, if you guys ever need me, you can just put up the bat-signal. i'll be there in a jiff.

Binkleberry says:
Because she's the hero Moustache May deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt her because she can take it. Because she's not our hero. She's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

Pip says:
It seems you saved the day in more ways than one. For that, and everything else, thanks.

I've got a sneaking suspicion that this is just the beginning of a very long, very fun friendship.

NOW who looks like Christian Bale?

Someday I'll make it back to Nashville and you can show me around. In the meantime, we can keep up on facetube or myface or whatever else we can think of. Thanks for the late night chatting, the compliments and the clamebute. It's all very much appreciated.

I could leave you more comments

wondermade says:
But I'm afraid that would seem artificial

wondermade says:
I mean, each though would be / is independent so it's legitimate on that front.

But couldn't I consolidate into a single entry?

wondermade says:
Couldn't I use better punctuation?
Posted: May 31st, 2011 - 10:22pm -
wondermade says:
Regardless it makes sense because you've carried the chat so many times and are far more deserving of comments than many of the stached participants.
Posted: May 31st, 2011 - 10:22pm -
wondermade says:
So anything to right that wrong I can do is automatically legit, right?

wondermade says:
Also, Fido is great. I envy that you can eat there. I had breakfast with some friends a little while back and haven't found a nearby comparable place.
