You have arrived at the happy-feel-good-nice-things-only rating community of The Ladies who Lunch. My name is Alison, and I will be your moderator. If you want an idea of what we're like, check out leading_ladies. It's very simillar, only we are dealing with the Sondheim ladies. As of now I only have stamps for shows for which Sondheim was the lyricist and composer, but who knows? Maybe we'll have a theme week someday with his lyric-shows.
The Rules ~Be nice. Don't make negative or hurtful comments, criticize other members, etc. If you do, I will murder you and sell you in a meat pie. Promise.
New Members ~We respect lj policies. You must be at least 13 to apply. ~Please put your application behind an lj-cut. It just makes everyone happier. Check the FAQ if you are unsure of how to do lj-cuts. ~We will be even HAPPIER if you bold your questions. ~Please, I am not going to be a spelling and grammar Nazi, but take enough pride in your application to make it legible so we can all understand it. ~Once this community takes off, you will have three days to garner votes before being stamped. But it might have to be a little longer at first. ~You can include whatever other photos you like, but please include at least one where you look as you normally would on any given day. ~Please put the phrase "Did you come here for a pie, sir?" in the subject line of your application so we know you've read the rules. ~PLEASE vote on the other applications! you do not have to be stamped to do so, and, in fact, I will not stamp you until you have voted on at least two other applications (unless, of course, there aren't two other ones. . .)
Stamped Members ~PLEASE, continue to vote after you have been stamped. We want to be able to give new members enough votes to reach a good concensus. ~Please put "Stamped" in the subject of any subsequent posts so we don't vote on you again by mistake :o)
