    Hyper: We're glad to hear you're doing better. We have a thread about the hurricane in the Lounge section, where fellow OSAers on the East Coast have been keeping us updated on how things are going. I have to admit, when you didn't come into chat on Friday, I was a little worried about how you were doing. Well, I was worried before, but you don't post on the forum that often so when we were looking for certain folks here I didn't think you would see the thread right away. You always come to chat every week, so I was very concerned when I didn't see you there. I'm so sorry to hear you guys were without power for so long! :( Did your house get any serious damage? Is everyone in your family OK, and how badly was your neighborhood affected?

    I will probably show up late in this week's chat. That's because I just left earlier today (in the morning) to go on a long road trip down to Florida to go on vacation, and it's going to take more than one day of driving to get down there. By the time I check into a hotel tomorrow tonight, it could be close to 9:00 PM or maybe even later than that.

    Thanks for the heads-up; I'm pretty sure due to today's holiday, a lot of folks will be staggering into chat later than usual. We'll leave the light on for you and see you when you get there! And of course we want to hear all about your road trip! :)

    I will show up late in this week's chat as well. That's because I plan on leaving Florida to start heading back home. Even though we have to leave our timeshare before a certain time tomorrow morning, we plan to start leaving today and getting a head start on our trip back home. By the time I check into a hotel and use their wireless internet to get online, it will be after 9:00 PM for sure.

    Sorry I missed chat this week, folks. Some personal stuff came up today and I just couldn't make it. Will see you all next week.

    I finally checked into a hotel earlier and now I found out that no one joined the chat tonight besides myself. Sorry it took so long to check into a hotel. My parents were determined to reach Columbia (South Carolina) tonight because that was the city we got our rental car from. Tomorrow morning, we'll drop off the rental car from the place we got it from and use our actual car to get back home.

    Thanks for keeping us posted on that; I really wanted to come to chat, but...well, life happens. :(

    I wonder why C. hasn't shown up in the chat room tonight?

    Sorry Hyper; I was talking on the phone with my sister last night and am very bad at talking and "chatting" at the same time.

    Taimi has lost her internet access and hopes to be back online next Friday.

    Next Friday's chat - "End of the World" Edition

    Yes, our next scheduled chat will happen on December 21st, the date that the world ends according to the Mayan calendar. I don't believe in the idea the world will actually end, but it's very amusing that our next chat will happen on that date.

    Yes, and it's also the last chat before Christmas! So if you feel like getting some of the holiday stress off your chest, come to chat and vent with the Oceansouls! Or you can vent about how the world didn't come to an end after all. Whichever. :lol:

    Since you have so aptly titled this, I will mark this as an event on our Facebook. Try to see if we can get some folks to come.

    Also, Taimi is looking to be back online by Friday, so hopefully she'll be back in chat too.

    I just found out that it's been 69 days since C. last showed up on the OSA chat room. It's been so long since we had chatting in there.

    If possible, this might be a good night to show up on the OSA chat room because of the news about Floor and Troy joining.

    Yes, I think we'll have to open a new chat room because they go bad after 72 days?

    I'm sorry I haven't been in the chat lately. Since Tuesday is our anniversary, I think this upcoming Friday we should make more of an effort to meet up!

    C., the chat room still exists, so you don't need to create a new one again.

    But with tomorrow being New Year's Eve, we need to do some more chatting in the OSA chat room again.

    So then you want me to go ahead and schedule it? I can show up maybe for a little while in the early evening. I'll try to get there by 7 my time.

    Yes, please schedule it.

    I'll be in there around 7:00 PM EST tonight.

    Thanks, Hyper!

    Last night's chat was awesome! We had an amazing turnout; the likes of which we haven't seen since the early days of OSA, back when we used to have chats on AIM (anyone remember those?)! It was great catching up with all of you and spending the last hours of 2013/first hours of 2014 with fellow Nightwish fans.

    However, I might as well take this time to make a sort of "announcement": during the chat last night, Hyperspace, Taimi, and myself all agreed that due to our own busy schedules, and the fact that the band is on hiatus right now and there won't be much Nightwish news to speak of, we are going to cut back on our scheduled chats at this time. For now, we are going to have monthly chats instead of weekly ones. We'll be holding our chats on the first Friday of every month; same time as before (starting at 8 p.m. Eastern). Thanks for your patience and understanding!

    Sorry I was so sour. I felt bad about being a bit negative etc.
    I thought you maybe wouldn’t want me back.:D
