Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright or What happened to FS blog, "A Daring Adventure?"

Our blog friend, NDS inquired if Kolbi's "A Daring Adventure" blog has suddenly disappeared? Yep, it's gone.  Don't know who got her but these tigers have been known to slurp bloggers for snacks with their frappucino. But this was fast, much too fast -- must be one terribly hungry tiger. All in the last 24 hours, too. If you happen to know the name of the tiger or its trainer, we would like to know. The problem is there are way too many tigers in the zoo. The owners may not always know who the tigers bite. But that they bite, is clearly not a rumor.

This left me scratching my head, of course. I think the last item Kolbi wrote about had to do with "Oakwood" and "We are not a hotel" thingy.  This is going to make me stay up all night - I thought these tigers only work overtime in China, Cuba and Ayran.

Double holy mother of goat!

It's not only that these tigers are absolutely not nice.  They also bite a spouse who is not a paid employee of the big house! Krrrreeeeeeek. That's me cracking my neck, trying to figure this out.  Ouch! What?  She stuck her head and made sounds and it was her fault?  Oh, I see -- she's not allowed to stick her head and have an opinion of her own because her husband works for the big house? Oh, that sucks! ...... But, hey.... I thought that only happens in places where they forced women to wear those lovely burqas?      

Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright

Don’t wander off here
Stay behind the dotted lines
There’s danger out there

Yes, tigers beyond these lines
And they―are trained hard to bite

I just emailed her, and she has shut her email account, too. The speed at which she disappeared is all a little frightening.

She is gone from facebook and twitter too.

Her email was connected to the blog site, so they're all coming back as undeliverable. Granted, I'm new to this FSO life, but this seems a little spooky, crazy to me!

Did she just make her blog password protected? Anyway to pass that information along to the FS community if you have it?

TSB said...

I contacted Kolbi yesterday, just to be reassured that she's okay. She has decided to stop blogging - we can speculate about why - but I hope we'll hear from her again in the future.
