Greetings Twitterlandians!

Greetings Twitterlandians!

Farloft requested that I take to the keyboard in order to remind you he will be on my twitter account again this Friday, October 25, 2013.

He is looking forward to chatting with old friends, as well as making new acquaintances. 

Farloft asked me to pass on a few personal messages in advance of his arrival.

@Scottishsnowdragon – He is in hopes he can persuade you to serve some of your lovely biscuits. He wanted me to tell you he will bring the lemon curd and Devonshire cream.

@DS_Books – Farloft says to tell Robert he is looking forward to talking to him again, in a polite tone, and that he still thinks a day or two in the wilds with James and him would do the ‘whelp’ a world of good.

@Yogoloth – He is looking forward to seeing you again and he wants to send you something special. He requested you drop me a DM with your email for the purpose of delivery.

@Balletmuzik – Farloft asked me to invite you to peak in. He loves music and is particularly fond of your piece “Reflections” from The Garden Within. He hopes he can talk you into playing it for him again.

@Crazyidealist – Farloft said to “Girdle your loins.” He intends to make you laugh again.

@szwriter – He hopes to have some in depth conversation with you regarding your anger issues and your misconceptions of historical facts. 

Farloft once again wishes to assure @adrianeVillano and @alxindia he has no interest in your sheep unless you intend to 1. Remove the wool (it gets stuck in his teeth), 2. Roast them properly with garlic, 3. And serve them with a bit of mint sauce on the side.

@Ofthewilds – He’s looking forward to discussing your relatively new site, Black Collar. He finds BC a fascinating tale.

Farloft hopes all his #DragonWorld friends will drop in to chat and fill him in on their latest exploits. @ finndragons @authorjsmorin @brianrathbone @Macpetreshock @caldraken @aviathrym @modhaiku @kevin_Nielson @kieralianebruce @jorobinson176 @garlanglave @ciaraballintyne @thewritemunz @cripsen @ryndaria @scrytowolf

@amykmcmahon – He asked me to have mom give Belle a big hug for him.

Until Friday,
Theresa Snyder “On behalf of Farloft, the Dragon”

PS – Farloft hopes @lynoth has made progress on finding him that little furry, winged kitty.

Follow Farloft Friday Follow-up

I would like to express my thanks to everyone yesterday for making my first foray on Twitter a delightful experience. ::ruffles wing in excitement remembering the days tweeting:: 

You were all so kind and generous with your retweets and comments.

I wish to thank @Damyantig for suggesting I join everyone on Twitter, and my dear friend @OftheWilds for encouraging me to take the leap. ::tilts head in thought::

I would like to extend special thanks to @Scottishsnowdragon for the lovely biscuits, ::licks lips in hopes there might be some crumbs left on snout:: 

@Balletmuzik for the beautiful rendition of his composition “Reflections.” ::hums quietly for a moment to himself in contemplation::

And, @Yogoloth for being such a good sport. ::grins at the thought::

I was pleased I could help in resolving issues between @CrazyIdealist and @szwrites even though it meant shattering well held misguided beliefs on the young man’s part. ::shakes head thinking of how the truth of stories has twisted over the years into almost unrecognizable tales::

I was happy to assist @DS_Books with Robert’s misbehavior. I do believe he is a good dragon at heart. He just needs a little firm guidance, like any teenager. I will endeavor to provide that as the situations present themselves. ::wish I could see Robert and make sure he isn't currently planning some sort of mischief::

My love to all my dragon clan for spreading the word and joining in the fun yesterday – a particular thank you to @OftheWilds and @finndragon. ::fully extends wings in salute::

And to all the lovely ladies, an assurance, I WILL NOT eat your sheep unless you provide them roasted, I far prefer wild game. No need to outfit them in armor. ::grins a lopsided toothy grin and shakes head at the thought::

And I will defend all the Fair Lady's honor should they require it with teeth and claw. ::inflates chest in pride::

Until the next time, “May the wind catch your wings and the sun warm your scales.”

-Farloft, the Dragon –

PS -        @Lynoth sent me this photo.
                If anyone sees one of these exquisite creatures, please purchase it for me.
    Please…. I have gold…. Lots of Gold
                I promise to take very good care of it. ::ruffles wings in anticipation:: I love furry little things.

Greetings and solicitations, 

"I would like to provide you with a bit of an introduction." :: ruffles wings and settles down on haunches before the computer:: "I am Farloft, resident dragon in the Kingdom of the Last Dragons."

"I was visiting a friend recently when I was introduced to Twitter via a glowing review" ::smiles a toothy grin:: "of a book in which I am featured, JAMES & THE DRAGON – the dragon in the title being no other than me." ::puffs out chest with pride::

"By popular demand" ::raises neck spines for emphasis:: "both from the reading public, Damyanti G (who wrote the charming article), and my fellow dragons, I have been asked to make an appearance on Twitter." ::raising neck spines succeeds in upsetting headset. Readjusts headset and gets back down to business::

"I am a dragon of advanced age, with I might say, a good bit of knowledge to pass on to my friends." ::fiddles a bit more with headset to get it just right. Blasted things a bit awkward, but gives a very dashing profile:: "So, I have consented to take up my headset and do a bit of tweeting each 2nd and 4th Friday of the month using Theresa’s account."

"I am surprised I had not heard of this Twitter ‘thing.’ It lends itself so well to a dragon. Though I would be loath to tweet like the blue bird on the herald, I do have wings. Also, Theresa has equipped me with a dictating program called Dragon Naturally Speaking. If it were not written with a dragon in mind, why would they give it such a name? 'Dragon' indeed...." ::smirks in the mirror. I really do look handsome. Wonder what Clearair will think of this?::

"We did have a bit of difficulty finding a headset large enough, but finally accomplished the task at the local 'Gear for Big and Tall Men' shop in something called a mall." ::adjusts headset once more and crinkles brow. Gazes at image once more in the mirror over the computer desk. Wonder if Theresa will let me wear it home?::

"My fellow dragons on Twitter, whom I have just recently met, have pointed out I will be tweeting on #FF. I am so pleased they have already established a hash tag in my honor. I understand from my friends that 'Follow Farloft' has been quite successful over the years."

"I might suggest that in order to assist people in finding other friends and followers than myself on Follow Farloft day, we might add an additional ‘F’ to make it #FFF. This might stand for any number of Follow tips:

:adjusts headset one more time. Contemplates the advantages of hanging a mirror in the cave::

"My thanks to Adrian, the bard in our village, for the splendid rendition of me in my headset." ::nuzzles Adrian in the chest, then affectionately breathes warmly over his head, ruffling his hair::

"I look forward to seeing you all on Friday! Good day Twitterlandians! May your wings catch the wind and your claws embrace the ground."
