I am one of the three original Zoning Goddessess. I have held the post in the League as Fairy Godmother. My mantra is taken from the world reknown movie called "Office Space", and that is "Planning to Plan". I am typically irreverent. I like to have a good time.

I echo Mendies thought. It sounds like you'll fit right in with this mixed bag of nuts.

My advice, which I give to new comers.

"Post hard, post often, don't be offended".

Welcome. After so many years of Catholic education I am a little wary of someone named Sister. But I will give you the benefit of the doubt. Have fun.

Instead of thinking Catholic, think of the term sister in more in line with fortune telling after all that is what planners do...
we predict the future.

I thought we used the magic 8 ball? I do have a Yoda fortune telling device which comes in really handy.

From somewhere north of the confluence of the Mighty Ohio and Mississippi rivers, I send you Greetings. (Of course, we know not what time it is, but what does that matter to a Goddess?).

I am so terribly confused |-)

Your arrival has been anticipated
Wow, this almost sounds prophetic or should I say apocalyptic "You're coming has been foretold.....and the seas turned as blood and the skies were as black as sackcloth....." ;-)

Predict the future. I wish. At my job I mitigate the near-present.

Welcome
from the SW Indiana, in the Central Time Zone, on northshore of the Ohio River, at mile marker 792.5

1st Cyburbian Man: What I object to is that you automatically treat me like an inferior!
________: Well, I am Goddess
2nd Cyburbian Man: Oh Goddess, eh, very nice. And how d'you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers! By 'anging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society. If there's ever going to be any progress with the--
:
1st Cyburbian Man: I didn't know we had Goddess. I thought we were an autonomous collective.
2nd Cyburbian Man: You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship. A self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes--
1st Cyburbian Man: Oh, there you go, bringing class into it again.
As inspired by Monty Python's Holy Grail. ;-)

Hello and welcome from Australia.
