Good morning to all. Feel free to post today or, if you don't feel like posting, you don't have to! :)
Hope you all have a fantastic day
I think we will
* gestures to surroundings*
Just look at this place! It's never looked more beautiful!
seems like they're onto something.
"Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with DiS herself. I have been as sincere a worshipper of Lucien as the Greeks. I got up early and started a morning thread; that was a religious exercise, and one of the best things which I did. They say that characters were engraven on the bathing tub of Banks to this effect: "Renew thyself completely each day; do it again, and again, and forever again." I can understand that. Morning brings back the heroic ages. I was as much affected by the faint hum of a googlebot making its invisible and unimaginable tour through the boards at earliest dawn, when I was sitting with Windows open, as I could be by any trumpet that ever sang of fame."
this is now the thread of this afternoon.
warm out, eh?
And your afternoon is going even better, fellow stragglers.
I'm just gonna stretch out on the veranda for a while.
Just shout if you need a anything
this is now the thread of this evening.
Greetings friends. It is cold and rainy in Wellington but I am warming myself metaphorically by the fires of DiS.
I much prefer our thread-recycling sensibilities these days, much more eco-friendly.
No pressure at all with this but I just wanted to let you all know that we did have a pretty good thread on the new place yesterday. I know you all have your reasons for not transitioning and I fully respect them but I'm just going to leave this link here. A I said, no pressure at all to click it or anything:
I mean really, so what if it touches or doesn't touch. Why is it interesting to read a list of posts of people saying
do not make contact
as if we're gonna be like, ooh ant makes contact with his card, he's so much more interesting than I thought he was.
Can't belive you've come over here with this junk
when in actual fact you were opening a portal for the vicious negativity that infects that new place to come over here, where, as you'll be able to see, we've created an idyllic environment.
Please think carefully before posting such links in future.
I just really miss you all, that's all :(
Let's all have a fantastic day.
Bit of a change in the weather today, eh? What are we all doing at the weekend? I'm playing golf with my accountant.
only joking - hope you enjoy
but if you had asked my accountant to play golf that's exactly what I'd expect him to say being a bit of a joker himself!
The IRS decides to audit Ralph, and summon him to the IRS office. The IRS auditor is not surprised when Ralph shows up with his attorney. The auditor says, "Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable." "I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it," says Ralph. "How about a demonstration?" The auditor thinks for a moment and says, "Okay, Go ahead." Ralph says, "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye." The auditor thinks a moment and says, "No way! It's a bet." Ralph removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops. Ralph says, "Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye." The auditor can tell Ralph isn't blind, so he takes the bet. Ralph removes his dentures and bites his good eye. The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Ralph's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous. "Want to go double or nothing?" Ralph asks. "I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between. "The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this guy can manage that stunt, so he agrees again. Ralph stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the desk. The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win. "But Ralph's attorney moans and puts his head in his hands."Are you okay?" the auditor asks."Not really," says the attorney. "This morning, when Ralph told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty thousand dollars that he could come in here and piss all over an IRS official's desk and that you'd be happy about it."
I suppose I could ask him to take a look at the books as well.
Have fun dingers, even if there's a lack of depreciation, depletion and amortization chat.
I know he hasn't posted on here for a while but this was manly due to him going quite mad towards the end in his pursuit of becoming a child again, he was determined until the end but ultimately he tried a few too many experimental techniques and this was his undoing. I have set up a quick fm if anyone wants to contribute http://www.forevermissed.com/john-bemine-toast/ RIP Young Boy
I can't believe they wouldn't let you change his age to reflect his wishes. The world can be so cruel.
Goodnight sweet prince.
he was well-liked here
shame about that incursion of New Boarders this morning. We'll start putting a couple more people on watch in the mornings
but it's important we don't allow them to force us to completely change our way of life.
If we do that, the New Bladders will have won.
The relentless march of time proceeds.
