  • Happy 13th Anniversary Quarrels and Quills!

    It might be hard to believe but Quarrels and Quills is now over 13 years old!

    Q & Q was created by Jason Sanborn and Lairston to give the former Crossgen RPers a new home. In 2004, Crossgen, the comic company that brought our community together, went bankrupt and the posters had to find a new home. Q &Q (then called Comic Book Review) was created and has been here ever since.

    Here's to many more years to come.

      Well, this requires a celebration. Not being much of a cook, I'll contribute fruit salad. {place large bowl on a convenient table}

      Sets out drinks

      Oh, I know, Jacen. It doesn't seem that long ago when we started this.

      Welcome back, by the way. It's great to see you.

      Aye, Seems like only yesterday I followed my bother & Cousin onto the old old
      forums & got hooked.
      Thank you SF, it feels good to be back.

      {check fruit salad} Apples, oranges, grapes, dried cranberries, chopped dried apricots... that should work. What kind of drinks are there?

      Yes, welcome back, Jacen. Now we have two reasons to celebrate: the anniversary, and your return.

      You're welcome, Jacen. It's good to have you back. It doesn't feel that long ago on the old boards, but it is. We're all old now.

      Anne: There is soda, Gatorade, and water. Since there might be kids running through, we have to keep it non-alcoholic.

      Much obliged Anne Elizabeth Baldwin, Like wise OP.
      If memory serves SF your still younger then me.
      Also in the 13 years, does that include the CBReview
      Board or just the Q&Q, I can't remember....

      We include CBReview in the those years.

      And actually, I think Jen and I both older then you. I'm 38 and she'll be 34 in July.

      Wow, my memory is really bad then....
      I suppose I should be happy I remembered SF was younger then you...
      & you know a proper gentleman doesn't mention a lady's age, right?

      Lol, it's okay. I take it as a compliment when someone asks me my age and gets shocked I'm older then they thought I was.

      Apologies, I was merely bugging OP is all.

      I know what you mean, Sojourn. Thru much of the 20-00's, people acted slightly surprised when I mentioned that I'd graduated. They tended to ask when I'd done so. They were never prepared for my answer: "Well, I got my Master's degree in Fall '99, my bachelor's degree in 1992, and my high school diploma in 1987." I swear I got more double-takes from that answer...

      Now, well... I'm not at a stage where information like I've already graduated is particularly surprising, so I don't get to enjoy the double-takes nearly as often.

      It's all good, Jacen. If I thought she'd beat me with a stick for saying her real age, then I'd be worried.

      Xetal? I think you fit into a narrow window: old enough to be my father without raising eyebrows too far, but young enough to be my parents' son without raising eyebrows too far, either.

      Lost the post where I brought in a firkin of Old Peculier, but another won't hurt...

      True, but you can bet my wife's eyebrows would need peeling off the ceiling either way!
