Where's Caitrin?

Anyone know what's become of Caitrin? She hasn't posted since Feb 1. I miss her clearheaded youthful insight... don't you?

also I haven't had a good cookie in awhile...

Willie, you have no idea how much I've missed her. I wish she would come back. I've lost a good friend. I went and saw "MacBeth" and have no one to talk Shakespeare with anymore.

No matter where I wander I'm still haunted by her name
The beauty of her writing stay's the same
Sitting by my keyboad wondrin' where she is - if she'll return again.
Please come back lovely Caitrin and remain

Well, Mbo, the Scottish play is my absolute favorite but I'm sure I'd be no match in eloquence for our mutual friend...?

Might she have gone home to the Castle Mudcat ?

Okay Mbo...your promised lament...luv, Elle

Well she walked into my life
Like a spiritual nuclear bomb
Putting up everything I'd ever
Put any value on

Even had me saying 'I love you'
Believing it always would be
Had all my friends wondering
What the hell'd happened to me

Caught up in the web of love
Or under some spell I guess
It got to be what was foul was fair
And no's started coming out 'yes'

I never thought I ever would question
Who was underneath my hat
But you just never know what's what
Until you can say 'that's that'

I always had a pretty good mind
On the course of action I'd take
In case something'd come up from behind
Looking like some kind of mistake

But I can tell you now I thought I was flying,
When in fact I was falling fast
You just never know what's what
Until you can say 'that's that'

If true love is leaving you hungry
And the fires are making you cold
Run like a son-of-a-gun my friend
Before your young gets too old

A little bit sadder and wiser
A little bit bitter it's true
But don't you go looking down your nose
Or else it might happen to you

Beware the eternal temptation
To think you've got it all down pat
And don't go thinking you know what's what
Until you can say 'that's that'

Actually, Willie, I'm still a little pissed off at Caitrin since she dumped me for Catspaw in the Jukejoint thread.

Does anyone know her email addy? NOT to post here, just so that one of us might send her a note of concern and "miss you". I am glad you started this thread, Willie-O, as I've been worried about her, too.

Thanks,

kat P.S. WELL DONE, elle!!

Sweet tune. I miss Caitrin too. I hope I didn't say something that annoyed her.

From: Willie-O

I can see your point of view, LEJ...and after the way he treated her, too, always dropping her in the middle of nowhere to make room in the front seat for some ghost girl...

But we're much the poorer for discourse since she's gone MOI (missing on Internet). I really don't want to encourage public speculation on her personal business...but it shure would be nice to hear from her. Maybe we could lay a grammar trap, start a thread full of inappropriate declensions (whatever that might mean) and mixed tenses...nah, we do that all the time.

Caitrin please call...just drop us a line or two.

Willie-O

Caitrin has no need to hide
Gallant Mudcatters by her side
All for one and one for all
Please give Caitrin another call
Mudcat calling have you tried?

Do not fear the coast is clear
Caitrin come back to us my dear
Friendship rules the roost in here
A heart must mend and become a friend
Painfull though its love defend

Days are short and nights are long
Thats the reason for this short song Missing the harmony and a little cheer
Everyone worries and we miss you dear
Come back to us Caitrin where you belong

Aye, Dave

Pipers--sound the piobaireachd! Sir Egbert DeTraci has stolen our dear Lady Caitrin--let the search begin. Were others have failed, let Mbo Ruadh and his bold Highlanders succeed! By the Sacred Rood of Our Holy Lord, we will part the seven seas with our broadswords, face the Fomorian hordes, and sweep the continents of the earth in search of our Lady. I, Mbo Ruadh, once told her she would always have a friend in me--Mbo Ruadh keeps his word!

FÁG AN BEALACH!

There are only seven countries you cannot get to by ship; and I will sail the seven seas until I find her for ye mates...Yours, Aye. Dave

From: Willie-O

Well, yer honour Lord Red, thats all weel n good, and if parting the seas with a broadsword is what it takes, so be it, but don't you think it'd be a bit handier just to find a boat?

Anyway, she'll turn up. Methinks she's just away on a bit of a ramble. If the Mudcat Cafe didn't have a great name already, it could be called Rivendell--the last homely home. Can't stay away for too long, god knows some of us have tried. All links lead back, eventually.

Only seven countries you can't get to by ship? You must have a very clever ship Dave. I started counting up countries without sea-coasts and I ran out of fingers - and I hadn't even got round to the former Soviet Union countries, or Africa. Though I suppose there are some big rivers about.

This is obviously thread drift. Inexcusable on my part at a time when there's a crew member overboard.

From: katlaughing

Sometimes, lads, a lady just needs to be 'way for awhile and the calling to her serves only to remind. Now, mind you I've not heard from her, so this is pure speculation on my part, speaking from experience and all, but maybe a little more thread drift and a letting up of the clarion call might be in order for a day or two anyway. Mind though you've written some wondrous words, good efforts!

How come no one made such a fuss about me when I was gone from the Mudcat for 3 weeks on holidays?
When I came back from Hawaii the only thing anyone made a big deal about was my tan line.

I do hope we hear from Caitrin again. She is a real sweetie pie who brightens the threads with her lovely personality.

I beg to differ....I also beg to see your tan line....or lack thereof.

Sweet Bonnie, you were certainly missed but we did have an idea of your whereabouts and generally we do keep tabs on missing members, unlike John Bobbitt who had to rely on police finding his in a field. Did they use dogs? How do you train a dog for that? Come to think of it, I've known a lot of dogs where that ability seems to caome naturally.......

So where is Uncle Charles?

If you ever need to know anything about Uncle Charles' whereabouts, definately ask me.
Poor Charles had to suffer through a very painful root canal and at the same time his computer was in the shop. He was supposed to be back on line this weekend. So I am becoming somewhat concerned about him myself.
I miss Charles terribly.

Friends,

Without going into it, please be advised that this thread need to sink into oblivion for a bit. Can you open another thread for Missing Persons? (See me in the Personals if details needed. I won't give any but can drop a clue.)

Ain't missed her one iota, didn't know she was gone. No loss to anyone.
