The Boards Are Humming

Don't sell yourself short, mockingbird. You have plenty of wit.

 

What DGF usually says more or less rhymes with wit.

 

WHAT?!!!

 

Are you THEN tryin' to say that I don't REALLY "look like a game show host" and like DGF said earlier?!!!

 

Well, NOW'S sure a great time to tell me this, dark! I've just returned from the Sedona courthouse and after legally changing my name to "Wink Dargodale" in hopes of replacing Sajak some day!

 

(...ya know, I must say...sometimes your timing around here is pretty darn bad).

Not to worry, Dargs. You're a shoe-in.

I guess you all aware by now and no doubt tracking my progress as I move inexorably toward 4,000 posts. Since MILESTONES are trending more and more in TCM land, I thought that I join the fun and actually contemplated starting my own thread naming it "A four-thousand post party". Sheer inspiration, right of the blue! But I desisted because the current climate, a perceptible decline of the humming, made it seem overkill. Maybe MILESTONES are on the way out.

 

I was going to have a huge cake, complete with 4,000 candles, one for each illuminating post. I can't imagine why anyone would want to come to my party so I hired Tor Johnson as doorman. I figured him to be the real draw. I appointed him Cake's Guard and rented a Sword of Valyrian Steel so that he might adequately protect the cake as well as the realm. I rather ceremoniously presented him with the sword but he just looked it at a minute before devouring it. He must have been hungry. He chewed it up like it was a box of Crackerjacks. An impressive sight to say the least. Who needs a sword of Valyrian steel when you have teeth of Valyrian steel. Good Point.

 

And at festivities end I was actually going to let the thread die a natural death (as if the thread wasn't already DOA) and thereby eschewing the lamentable practice of changing the name and thus unwittingly causing an identity crisis. The saying goes, "All men must die."  Same thing with threads. Death with dignity, I say.

 

So now that the fun is over, I come crashing down to earth with the horripilating realization that 4K posts don't mean jacksh't and that getting back to movies or just on-topic chewing the fat is the order of the day, statistics be damned.

 

But ... I'll see you at 5,000 if I live that long.

Sorry but getting to 4000 posts isn't a big deal , all I got was a cheap bottle of imitation Scotch from some of my fellow shipmates. I am told that if I make it to 5000 posts I may get a transfer to a real Navy ship (if the Captain doesn't object).

Oh Joy, a 4,000 post newbie! Tell me, when you it 4,000, did you go look in the mirror to see if you looked any different? No, stay on that ship, you were coming into to your own. You're gonna wear that Captain down, I can see him cracking already. By 5,000, you'll probably be Commanding Officer.

Enjoy your bottle of imitation scotch lafitte--us poor ones coming up on 400 posts get a small bottle of imitation ouzo (anise flavored liquor) or a full size bottle of grappa (clear liquor that smells & tastes like gasoline, IMO)--I've already ordered my sample size bottle of imitation ouzo.

You were told wrong, I'm almost at 50,000, and I'm still waiting for my transfer.

That was Mr Roberts who got the imitation Scotch. I'm surprised it came from shipmates, that sounds like something that Captain would do.

 

I believe this post here is #4001 for me and so far I haven't gotten anything. I'm so bereft that imitation mayonnaise would like good at this point. At least Tor the doorman wouldn't take it from me. Fake mayo wouldn't appeal to him. We're still hanging around for someone to show up but everyone seems really busy not humming the boards.

 

Tor has his eye on the 4,000 candle cake. Uh-oh.

 

EDIT: Hey 293, pass the grappa, maybe I should take it while it lasts.

The subway sandwich guy is in trouble and in the news. He also looks like he went off of subway sandwiches.

 

The executive in charge of the campaign ads was found to have illegal porn (child?) in his possession. Apparently that was used to conduct a search of Jarred's property as well. I don't believe Jarred has been charged with any crime, though.

Well I've noticed the boards are moving smoothly, with interesting topics and many different members posting thoughtful & intelligent responses. 

Not much spam, snarky attacks or immature empty posts.

 

It's like the difference between kindergarten and college.
