Arms, legs, the usual.

I also seem to be running the site.

I may get around to writing some actual stories at some point.

All literary fiction follows this basic pattern, according to a guy I heard on the radio last week. For commercial fiction, replace with "does get it".

There is at least one exception to the rule: in Catcher in the Rye the guy doesn't want anything, doesn't try to get anything and, in the end, doesn't get anything. And I spent hours finding this out. What a waste of life.

Story prompt:

The classic six-word story. Make it classy, make it memorable. Make it in six words.

You may need to pad with ..... in order to beat the minimum-length pixies.
