That's a nice feeling, isn't it?

I wonder what that's like...

*shakes fist as sky* damn you, Jessicaaaaa!
152, too.

amazing.
I remember, back in the day, when I first read about you and the writing of your first novel... it took you how many years to get here? Proud, Bear, that's what I am. *wipes away tear*

Also, I've been so busy! Haven't been able to read any Dust or Wings to the Kingdom for a week! Well, I'll change that... once I finish all this other reading for my classes that's due! XP (So, um, this weekend? Haha.)
It's a proud day, let me tell you.
I'll always let you tell me... whatevery you want, Bear. ;)
Yeaaa!

::waves banner with strange device::
Make it a Raven Banner, given the subject matter.
::inspects banner::

I'm afraid it's either a scissors grinder or a steam-driven caper-plucker, sorry.
Not "Excelsior"?
No, it's definitely a strange device.

Maybe it was packed in excelsior?
Guess the reference is becoming obscure. I was citing the Longfellow poem "Excelsior." The firsdt stanza follows:

The shades of night were falling fast,
As through an Alpine village passed
A youth, who bore, 'mid snow and ice,
A banner with the strange device,
Excelsior!

Yes. That would have been what I was referring to in my initial comment, and why I said "a banner with a strange device."

Since then, I have been riffing on that phrase.
Apologies for arrant pedantry. Been a little toasty caring for a sick cat.
