Posted:It's awesome that twirlers from all 3.14 corners of the World make their high-pitched/baritone voices heard on this sweet forum. Mindful of this, It'll be interesting to know if participants/lurkers of HoP read out posts in the right accent: say irish posts with irish accents?When I read those posts from the UK all I hear is This. I read out the Canadian posts in a Terrence and Phillip accent. Ahh the mystery of the internet.P.S. I've never heard soo many 'off-key' scottish accents as I had during the last Melbourne St Pat's! to be sure.

Posted:I tend to read posts in many different accents - like a script. You all become crazy little characters in my head. I see you all in my head to, in funny costumes, and you all have different magical powers. Like PELE for instance, you have the power to combust at any given moment, vanish and reappear where ever you wish. Like, you become invisible, and you vanish leaving a black cloud of smoke. SPIRAL too (not that he's written on here but hey..) he is this mad spinning, whirlwind guy, with two, flaming poi's attatched to his beard, which are an attack/defence mechanism against evil people. Like CANTUS, he's not evil, but he flys around with these crazy sparkling wings - he breathes fire, much like a dragon, and he's pink and purple..... so yeah. I sort of make little cartoon type animations in my head of people having the conversation. Ofcourse, everyone has differnet voices too.However, for anyone who does this 'reading posts thing' in the senders accent - try mine: It's a mixture of WELSH, SCOTTISH and a tiny tiny bit of LANCASHIRE. There is your task....Love Dibs xxx

Posted:I know he's a big giant!!! He told me today. I'm actually quite scared of him now.The funny thing is, when I pictured him as the whirlwindy thing, he actually grew to about 40ft. Foreboding or what?Thought you'd be quite big too cantus. Or slim. Cantus the dragon is quite long.I should draw all this and send it in!*Dibs runs to find her art equipment, will she return? who knows. Find out in the next episode*

Posted:Pretty? Depends what your definition of pretty is, but nonetheless I am derranged - or overly happy you could say. Quite spritely. So is Ros. She has stripey tights and a matching jumper, did she tell you? She smiles a lot. And slim? erm....yeah. All that stupid dancing I do keeps the weight off.I guess I look quite innocent..........*Dibs laughs at herself for trying to make herself seem well behaved* Worth a try though....Cantus, do you have horns? I see you as having these really obscure boney bits ,like up your spine, really pronounced virtebrae, yeah, I can swing from them.....*Oh my god, I'm ill!

Although, you have really weird grass in your gardens. The grass on your lawns is like astro-turf, plastic grass. Really sore on your feet. Whats that all about? Get it sorted!
