The never ending thread


Recommended Posts

I'd like to take a lengthy amount of time to elaborate, but I think the title speaks for itself, so I’ll roll the dice and see what happens here, can we get this post up to 500 replies? or higher...

 

POST a smilie

 

Post a single word

 

Post something interesting

 

Post something ambiguous

 

Post something dull.

 

Who cares just post anything and bring this thread to a 1000+ replies.

 

I'll make a free sig like mine or better for every 100th poster. I reserve the right to ad a disclaimer if the number exceeds 1000 posts, -a good sig could take an hour or two to make depending so I'd best not set my self up to be working on free sigs til the year 2010. :blink::)

I love threads like this.

 

I lurk here all the time. Great board.

 

Hi folks. :good:

 

I'm not good with words, so I'll borrow a few:

 

 

Make yourself necessary to somebody.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

 

It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto nonexistent blindingly obvious. The cry "I could have thought of that" is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too.

—Douglas Adams

 

 

Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.

- Mark Twain

 

 

My favorite:

 

I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn't park anywhere near the place.

—Stephen Wright

OK I know you can't answer that even if you get this so you need at least 50 posts, don't be afraid of this place it does move fast but its super cool when you get used to it, lots of sharp minds here. So much for being a minority.

Missed ya :)

 

---------------------------

 

I'll ad this I think you will fit in great here Valk, this place is awesome, there are so many sharp people here it's almost unheard of this is a one and only type of a hot spot in cyberspace IMO. and... you will fit in great and perfectly here, everyone will really appreciate having another great asset to this site and you certainly are just that. Glad your lurking and starting to make the jump to light speed, nothing bad on our other hangouts we've shared its more of an upgrade or advanced class IMO.

 

So I just happened to be up late filling out an app for Lockheed FCU and I as I am starting to more and more habitually do I checked back here and saw you posted. Betcha we can make this a 1K+ replies post. :D

I had blueberry pancakes for breakfast.

 

My HELOC was transferred to another S&L in December.

The new one still has to report.

 

I called to find out why two months ago.

The answer was "Did you miss a payment?"

My answer was "No, but don't you report positive accounts?"

I got a transfer to a manager. "It takes time for transferred accounts to report."

 

I pulled TU and EX this AM from MyFico as I know the account isn't on my reports from Equifax CreditWatch.

 

The account still isn't showing up. Must have a hidden tradeline now.

 

I'm almost tempted to take part of the HELOC and pay down some of the credit cards, but I told myself I would not do it for that purpose.

 

Now, the reason some of the credit card balances are so high is that I just used $5000 at a very low rate to pay down the HELOC and save interest. I have $16,000 to go before that HELOC is paid off.

 

Since I only had two small pancakes, I think I'll go and fix myself two more and wait to see what other good offers materialize.

Okay so Kona just made me hungry talking about blueberry pancakes. I have the makings for sausage, egg, and cheese'mcmuffins' in my fridge. I also have a tube of refrigerated cinnamon rolls - hmm, decisions.

 

Speaking of decisions - I am ready to send in my application to open a Roth IRA. But I truly can't decide between T. Rowe Price Retirement (more aggressive) 2025 or Vanguard 2025 (more conservative).

That number is no longer 50, it's been changed because of reasons just like this. It was undisclosed in the first place for a reason. :blush:

My cat's breath smells like cat food.

 

My cat just got the first of his two daily doses of an antibiotic. I'm getting good at getting that stuff squirted down his throat. The first time I did it, he dashed out the door and sped away to hide. When he saw me coming, he made a mad dash around the house with me in pursuit but losing the race. The cat may be 16 years old, but he sure can make a quick getaway.

One time in band camp....oh wait you all already know that story.

 

Once I stubbed my toe on a block of ice....it healed quickly.

 

Men, cant live with them and cant use them for target practice.

 

Some people say I am too desperate when picking up men...who knew walking into bars naked and yelling out "ANY TAKERS?" was desperate?

 

Last man I tried picking up a man I threw myself in front of his car...I didnt think he saw me cause he ran me over but I knew I made an impression when he stopped backed up and ran me over again

My son broke his arm yesterday :mellow:

 

my kids didnt get me anything for mother's day - couldn't even bring themselves to wish me a happy MD :cry2:

 

my man bought his ex wife a ring for MD - allegedly from their kids, but the kids weren't even with him when he went shopping for it :angry: (I haven't gotten one piece of jewelry in the 2 years I've been with him)

 

we had a huge blowout when I got home from the ER because of something stupid and I ended up hauling mulch till 9pm so I could make sure I did my fair share of the work around the house (because I had to quit what I was doing to go to the ER) :aggressive:

 

got in another fight when we went to bed @ the ring and he slept on the couch and I was up all night, miserable tossing and turning :(

 

I'm tired as hell, my heart hurts and I just can't take much more... :unsure:

aww, I'm sorry gargoyle. Don't you wish you could just hit him over the head with a frying pan or something? That wasn't nice at all. Why the need to buy the ex a RING??? If it's just from the kids he coulda bought ANYTHING (a CARD??).

Gargoyle, what a lousy day!

 

This is where you get his credit card and go down to the local jewelry store and buy an item. Then you come home, and say, "Honey (ha, ha), look what you bought me for Mother's Day!"

Has anyone read Fast Food Nation? Was wondering about other people's opinions. I think it's a MUST READ (especially if you're parents!! It'll make ya think twice about taking your 6 yr old to McDonald's).

 

I think it was a great book...a bit biased at times, but *generally* I think it focused less on the politics (except there towards the end..lol).

 

 

Now, I'm gonna be reading How did you become Mexican: a White/Brown Man's Search for Identity. It sounded interesting, and I think Olivia might benefit from it when she's older. After that I'm reading Black Boy. I *tried* reading The Jungle, but it was a bit slow...I just lost interest (not usual).

English is a crazy language.

 

There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor

pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or

French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads,

which aren't sweet, are meat.

 

We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find

that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea

pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

 

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers

don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth,

why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one

moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?

 

Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend,

that you comb through annals of history but not a single annal? If

you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them,

what do you call it?

 

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian

eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? If you wrote a letter,

perhaps you bote your tongue?

 

Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an

asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at

a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?

Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive

on parkways?

 

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man

and a wise guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee be

opposites, while quite a lot and quite a few are alike? How can the

weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell another?

 

Have you noticed that we talk about certain things only when they are

absent? Have you ever seen a horseful carriage or a strapful gown?

Met a sung hero or experienced requited love? Have you ever run into

someone who was combobulated, gruntled, ruly or peccable? And where

are all those people who ARE spring chickens or who would ACTUALLY

hurt a fly?

 

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your

house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by

filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

 

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the

creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn't a race at all).

That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the

lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch,

I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it.
