"Some of you are just sick."

I'm not 'just' sick. I'm ambitiously ill. There's muscle to my madness...

I forget where to find the stats and I don't much care but I reckon I easilt post 10 a day: that's 300/month. But the real figure's probably 500/month.

Kenmeer, don't be so modest...
785/mo and 26/day is more like it.

At least you keep them brief... [Razz]

lol!

I have the same non-brevity problem...

Ev and WP are also impressive, this is certain... On one of the few topics I really kept up on, I was going at it hard with both of them, but they were each on a couple more topics doing the same. Oi.

Dang. I've only got 43/month (1.4/day), apparently - that's purty crazy, Mr. L.

I've got about 36/month (1.2/day). I'm impressed that Kenmeer's daily score is so close to my monthly score [Wink]

second date = wildy successful.

our first date was very activity oriented, we had coffee, saw a movie, had dinner, had drinks, etc.

this one... went to dinner, then went to campus and walked around on the roof of my office building, then went to his place (wow he has a great place) and listened to music and played with the dog. it was all very chill and really awesome. like him.

"Not sure I'd use the word "impressed", perhaps "concerned", "afraid", "worried"?"

Just 'resigned'. I started at Ornery while enjoying the Never-Ending FLu. Expected it to fizzle soon, fora being what they mostly are. But Ornery has some kind of critical mass, not to mention an ape cousin in the form of Monsieur Dey who does an excellent best-cheating, er, chest-beating orangutan to my bonobo chimpansy.

Not that his is the only personality off which I enjoy reflecting my mind...

CP- the way he treats his dog totally cemented the notion for me that he's a really good person- he built (built!) a bed for himself that was low to the ground so his bassett hound could get off and on it without getting stiff joints. i'm pretty sure there was an element of testing my dog-friendliness in that date last night... he seemed very relieved.

"KL - I wondered if you'd noticed that."

Noticed what? (kenmeerian per peeve: cryptic replies with no referntial quote by which to decrypt their 'key'.) Noticed Richard's remarkable verbal resemblance to the librarian orangutan from Prathcett's infamous Discworld series?

A) If'n agirl don' like yo dawg, she don' like yew.

B) Our youngst dog is an adorable dachshund named Scooter. We built a ramp along the foot of our bed so he can get up and down from bed at night. (He sleeps with us; dachshunds are Evolution/God/Fate's zenith of loving creatures. NO one, not even your firstborn, cuddles as perfectly as a dachshund.

Bassets test one's olfactory patience as they grow older, but their emulation of Old Grandpa dachshund is ALMOST as endearing as a dachshund's simple ability to just plain love...

KL - Sorry. Lazy. Yes, Monsieur Dey's talents.

SB - Well, he wins points in my book, not that it matters. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback, all 80 lbs of her, freqently sleeps under the covers. Were I looking for a partner, that would most certainly be a test! This is looking promising for you! (And by the way, did you write that post-date post at 3:51 this morning???)

i was wondering if anyone noticed that. *grin* yeah. both of our dates have gone from about 6pm until 3:30am or so... time flies, and usually from 1 until 3 we intermittantly discuss how it really IS time to go and oh we both have work the next day... he said it was "refreshing to be sleep deprived again" because it makes him feel like he's not succumbing to the work-eat-sleep routine without a fight. i'm actually not that tired because i'm such a rockstar that i can do these things.

i'm all stoked and hyper because i'm having such a good time... i know i like someone if they make me get dorky and giddy.

SB, I'm glad to hear your date went well. He sounds like a great guy. I gave a girlfriend a basset hound once, his name was MacArthur, Mac for short. Her mother has him now.

CP, I'm sure she was home well before that! Our dog sleeps under the covers with us too. I may have mentioned it before but I think it is neat, did y'all know that the band "3 Dog Night" refers to the number of dogs you need in bed with you on a particularly cold night? Neat, huh?

Oops! Guess not. (SB replied while I was typing my last post.)

I love that first getting to know somebody stage. It is the one major drawback to marriage. For me anyway. Looking at the divorce rate it doesn't seem to slow some people down.

SB - Actually, that's a great sign. You're so into it, you don't want to leave. You go, rockstar!

KE - Don't remember hearing about your dog under the covers, but these correspondences are passing from coincidence into the realm of the uncanny.

Now they have interupted the last five minutes of my wife's favorite soap to report that the Pope has a fever. Wait, a very high fever. Is an old man feeling bad such important new that it can't wait for the regular news. If Viagra making you go blind can wait surely this can.

From The Guardian, five or so minutes ago:

quote:
VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope John Paul II's medical condition has worsened, the Italian news agency Apcom reported Thursday night, citing unidentified sources. The Vatican had no immediate comment on the report.

Apcom said doctors had to intervene because of a ``worrying lowering of (blood) pressure.'' The news agency also said the pope reportedly had a high fever.

A Vatican official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he was unaware the pontiff's condition had worsened, adding that the pope's situation was ``regular'' a few hours ago.

Question: what goes into the Archives, and how? And why? Some of you older folks with littler numbers under your names will have to explain this to me. I noticed there's nothing new in there since more than a year ago.

Are we just too big now? There are some threads I can think of from my lurker days and then from last fall that might merit a look, but I think I can understand that it would be near impossible for just one guy/gal (OM?) to go through EVERY THREAD and pick what he/she thinks is the best.

oh, everything gets archived... eventually.

if you start the thread, you get an email when it goes to the archives. i think it's perhaps a year with no posts? something like that?

Yup. This is the Onanic American. We're all thinking about you and what you're wearing and wondering why you won't turn your webcam on and do a slow grind for us... or we would if we weren't all blind from Viagra.

i just went upstairs to work and the camera battery was dead, so now i'm killing a little time until it can recharge.

camera for what, you say? here's a couple pictures i took today before the battery conked out on me:

www.sbs.utexas.edu/shawk/basking.htm

cool, huh? that's a butterfly from mid-elevation french alps, hanging out in our greenhouse. i'm doing a thermal study on take off temperatures of butterflies from different latitudes and altitudes... the non-thermal picture is of euphydryas editha, the one i usually work on... there will be some of them (from northern california), some of melitaea cinxia (from finland and different spots in the french alps), some euphydryas aurinea (spain and france) and some totally unrelated helioconius species that i happen to have access to, and perhaps some pierids from around here. it's my master's data, which is pilot data for a climate change study by the woman who owns the camera.

anyway, that little guy is sitting on an envelope (tiny little butterfly, yes), warming up to try to fly. i think it's neat.

also, yes. the temptation to take thermal pictures of oneself is very high.

I think we're having some difficulty with the definition of "teen movie." A teen movie is anything released during the summer for kids with too much time on their hands to waste their money on. "The Breakfast Club" or "Real Genius" aren't teen movies just because they have teen characters in them.
