20,000 posts!

Postby zach » Mon Oct 10, 2005 1:19 am

This post marks the 20,000th on this board! That's pretty awesome, and quite the milestone, I'd say. What an honor to be able to steal this moment! Congratulations everyone.

Now the Long Winters can make it big. They have a forum with 20,000 posts!

couldn't resist it, and googling for pics and '20000' gets this:

which was to celebrate 20,000 hits on www.poopreport.com.

I haven't got time to investigate further into this website.

Hurrah for us.

Yes, but how many posts are actually about the band, as opposed to various animals and/or their respective ass-kicking abilities?

but those are about the band, as well. not sure yet who's the snake, who's the gator, who's the mountain lion and who dreams of being a polar bear (well, the latter is clear), but believe me, things get nasty in any band

They don't clean the floors here, Jeannette, so you should probably get up!

You know what? I'll just let you use one of those new Swiffer things. They look cool.

I would like to think the Elec-tronic Salon has velvety carpet, a dark shade of red, and big easy chairs, and mahogany tables. In fact, you may realise that I'm picturing an old-fashioned English members-only club. You know, where servants know your favourite drink - they do NOT serve modern mix drinks, or any humbug like that - and will serve a wickedly scrumptious High Tea.

Liesbeth is absolutely correct. You will not find any "mojitos" served in the LW's salon bar. Perhaps you should try Coyote Ugly, which we're sure is in the phone book. In the meanwhile, would you care for a hand-rolled cigar?

The earlier reference to the floors not being "clean" must have been an allusion to the Long Winters Salon Laboratory Facility, where members often perform experiments and where, to the casual observer, it may seem that disorder is the rule. Rest assured that whatever disarray you may apprehend upon the lab floor is in the name of science.

Normally, as President Emeritus, I would not concern myself directly with matters of decorum, or in guiding new members around the grounds of the estate, but as our normal staff has the further distinction of being in their own right scientists and writers of many and varied interests, their other pursuits often require that their full attention be diverted elsewhere and during these trying times I'm all too happy to come down from the Tower of Doom and lend my considerable expertise.

On that note, I must also take pains to remind that, as this is a club of some distinction, I'm afraid that there can be no Laughing Out Loud, and particularly no Rolling On The Floor Laughing within the salon. These behaviors, and other exuberant outbursts including lascivious winking, smiling and gasping, whilst expressing an admirable and much appreciated enthusiasm, could prove to unsettle any older members recently returned from Polar expeditions, and for that reason are perhaps better suited for the Long Winters Outdoor Recreation Facility, which is under construction.

Thank you for your prompt attention to these matters.

Sincerely yours,
Brig. (Ret.) John Morgan Roderick

*expressionless*



I will do my best to be Laughing Out Loud-less, Rolling On The Floor-less and such.

BTW Swiffers also work on lineoleum as well as the floors in the gym in which I work.

But, if a plush carpet is what we have, then I will lend anyone my Kirby, but please don't kill it or I'll be silently angry.

Now I am walking silently, calmly, SLOOOOWWWWLLLY out of the thread.

Oh, pooh! And I was looking for some excitement. Let me know when the beer tent opens.
