This is the difference between you and them. You've learned things. They only know that someone promised grilled cheese and got a ticket.

Is that a euphemism for learning to talk Canadian?









No, wait... that would be hosery. Silly me.

And practicing your Indiana accent? That would be trying on Hoosiery.

That site actually verges on being SPAM. His handle is even a link back to his website!

What do you know. I was so put off by the unicorns and disco balls that I just couldn't be bothered to looking up his website.

At least is isn't a link...

I just saw that post, and the one just after (or before?) it, and I had to come rushing over here. :shock:

I love that he lives every day in the light of the burn but has never been before!

And in the neighbouring thread, there's someone looking for their star brothers and star sisters! So we've got sun sisters, celestial brothers, and star siblings. This is a stellar year, indeed.

Wow - just Wow!

I haven't had much time to watch this thread lately - but I wish I had some of whatever these folks were on when they posted.

Then again, if it made me sound like that maybe it wouldn't be a great idea (unless I was away from the internet for the duration).
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Or... take some and then come and entertain us with some starry-eyed nonsense! Da Bar is always open; it has comfy furniture, coffee, and anything else you need to take the edge off. You're among friends here; we'll be gentle... mostly ;)

For those keeping score, I've removed the mauiburnerzzz posts (and replies to it) from the 'free to the right girl' thread. Figured I'd let board regulars know here rather than bumping the thread.

If I were giving away a ticket, I would immediately disqualify someone who doesn't know not to put "manifest" and "destiny" in the same sentance. Although, he or she might have an edge over the person who put "final" and "solution" in one...

I love that whenever I see something in that forum that makes me feel snarky, I can run down here and find that Fishy has put my thoughts to words for me.

There is a very high score on this one...
OF course, reading through it with the scoresheet open, it's clear she used it as crib notes. Well played, lady!
