Lurkers ~ Celeste's Mad Rantings

Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary defines the word lurk as the following:

intransitive verb 1 a : to lie in wait in a place of concealment especially for an evil purpose
b : to move furtively or inconspicuously
c : to persist in staying

2 a : to be concealed but capable of being discovered; specifically : to constitute a latent threat
b : to lie hidden

3 : to read messages on an Internet discussion forum (as a newsgroup or chat room) without contributing


When I imagine a subject (e.g. myself, or another person) lurking, I imagine said subject zombiefied, dragging a leg, or some other suitable type lurch, through the dusty hallways of an Addam’s Family-esque mansion. The subject is usually groaning in a piteous fashion as they wait for something interesting to stumble out of one of the many creaky doors lining the corridor.

With that thought, dear Innmates, I’d like to remind everyone that we affectionately refer to anyone hanging around the Inn without being in Dragon Chat or posting in the forums as “Lurkers”. Merriam-Webster’s third definition, in sync with modern times, agrees with that statement. Think of me fondly while you envision your fellow Innmates (which should include me on a daily basis for several hours) in this new light.

love,
~me

Imagine...

...you, lurching through the dusty hallways of an Addam’s Family-esque mansion, waiting to pounce the nearest unsuspecting soul?

Okie doke... but be careful where you nibble... I'm ticklish!
