Hi Tony, good to see you. I'd like to give you this shout. And this apple.

Tony, I left a cheese sandwich out in the sun. Is it safe to eat? It's made with Wonder Bread, Kraft Singles and some margarine, so I think it should be safe. What do you think?

I wish you hadn't eaten it, KokuRyu, and I hope you're okay this morning. Here's the thing: Wonder Bread is made from the souls of unborn babies. Every time a woman has an abortion the Wonder Bread Corporation steals the unloved child's metaphysical essence before it can return to Heaven and stirs it up in a giant vat of pulpy goo in a lab in New Jersey. That's how they make their bread. It's really not good for you because it makes Jesus sad and so He curses you to hellish damnation. Have you noticed that I'm dead? Right now my flesh is burning in a pool of eternal fire because I ate too many ham sandwiches. By the way, did you like the last New Order album? I thought it was kind of lame.

Ta for now,
Tony

I liked Republic quite a bit. But Thrills, Chills and Bellyaches changed my life. Black Grape, not so much.

What's this "I'm too newbie" business? do we have some sort of waiting period, or do these people actually scare you?

Hey Tony...what do you think about the success of your mate Keith's little girl?

Gee, if someone is too noob to post to the blue, they should definitely be too noob to post to the gray (it's still gray right?, I have had it set to white for a decade or so). What is up with this?

Gorsh. Not sure whether I feel green, grey or red now. Thanks all for the feedback. *shuffles off staring at shoes*

Whoa, you defenestrated him over a simple MeTa post? Talk about your over-reaching and dictatorial abuse of teh Mod Powarz!

Did you see the lane lines Ms. Olympic-size is wearing? So last year. And the Communitys brought their kiddie along—it's probably got a floater by now. At least the Watertubes are here. Yeah, they're in the backyard doin' a J.

That would be "Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches", my friend.

nevercalm, my eral's all flynned out. This quote from today's Independent obituary kind of sums it up:

"I... remember thinking that if I died then I wouldn't mind at all," Wilson said in a recent interview. "I had had such a fulfilling, colourful life, and had done just about everything I wanted to do. But now that mortality was staring me in the face, I realised what an idiot I had been to think like that. I had so many things still to do."

They scare me, and I've been a member for four homes, three cities and two kids now.
