I feel the need to schmoopy. Thank you, MeFi, for being there for me during the hard times. And the less hard times, but who needs praise for sticking around when things are easy, eh?

(Thank you also for not sending withering glances my way when I made all of those stupid comments.)

Thank you for the Best Answers, the page-long anecdotes, the Music posts, the "Previously"s, the Projects, the meetups, the questions I never knew I had, the flags, the faves, the painstakingly-researched FPPs, the SLYTs, the mod notes, the stars/"staff" badges, the hardcore taters, the HAMBURGERs, the snarks, the memes, the things that weren't memes but almost were, and other things I have forgotten to include here.


I bet I am not the only one that MeFi has helped, so this schmoopy is also for anyone else who might feel the same way but not want to make a MeTa post.


I don't want to go into detail here, but big ups especially to Jessamyn, ocherdracho and *s, and the many other MeFites who have, in your varied ways, shapes and forms, played a large part in keeping me from screaming WUUUARGARBL and running into traffic.




(Now if you'll excuse me, I seem to have some sort of dust in my eye.)

Yay! (was drunk last, now sober and jet lag gone)

"i've been watching my little pony ...." really? hmmm.... Most of us that have requested ponies around here are told no.....

But, I'll agree with the intent of this post, this is a pretty neat place...

I'm now going to try to find a way to work SWARIT (Scream WUUUARGARBL And Run Into Traffic) into at least one AskMeFi answer this week.

I agree, this place is awesome.

I like you guys more than I like real people.

(Sadly sober, as usual. A bender would probably do me some good right about now.)

MetaTalk, an oasis of sanity in a crazy world. That's both a comforting and a frightening thought.

Somewhat related, this amazing thread wherein we all post about the songs that make us cry is furthers my commitment to stay and contribute here.

I've been around long enough that I've grown immensely sentimental about Metafilter. It's that time of year again where work takes off into crazy uncharted territory, and I get overworked, cranky, and don't have time for my children, much less my "online" family & friends, so I get a little wistful too, because I miss being able to participate more. You guys are an absolute rock of Gibraltar in my crazy surf right now, even if I don't seem to have the time to stop & say so, so I'll drop this THANKS right here, and get back to pounding out shirts.

What about those of us who kick in the door of your hotel room and drag you to dinner with strangers? Why no love for us?!

Feeling kinda schmoopy and woozy myself. What other place doesn't judge you when you wake up at 12:04 in a bathtub full of doritos and cheese doodle and Jim Beam puke? Love you guys. Need to focus here on showering and fasting.

I'll be Demi Moore if somebody wants to be the clay. Alternatively: glass shard/Tony Goldwyn?

After noon and you're sober? I realize you're new to the staff, but at least TRY to fit in.

On a more serious note, mucho hugs to everyone. This is a special place.

Judge you? We were the ones who lovingly lowered you into it while you were passed out.

Aww, I love the schmoopy.

(I am, sadly, sober. One of these days I'll figure out how to wake up drunk and go to bed sober, and most of my problems will be solved.)

I heard subbes is one of the few people that eyeballkid doesn't hate.

(Which is to say, you rock, too.)

I spent about eight hours yesterday in the woods in New Hampshire, playing paintball with a dozen other guys for a friend of mine's bachelor party. It was my first time every shooting and being shot with paint, and it was a lot of fun but also a tremendous amount of exertion and a lot of going OW OW GODDAMMIT and a little bit of bleeding, and also it was kind of a Zombie LARP thing at first because my friend loves zombies.

I was going to try and tie this into a metaphor or something but really I'm just incredibly sore today and catching up on the Metafilter I missed and it's really nice to be sitting down on a soft couch with a laptop and reading a bit of nice stuff that doesn't involve wondering if a half-inch wad of plastic is about to explode on my scapula.

i feel the same way about this place (not drunk, but working on my first cup o' joe). I love y'all more than my luggage.

Thanks for quashing unsalable dissent. Truly, we are better for a discussion model where flighty American Democrats represent the furthest left position.

If you put down some toilet paper first they not only won't explode, but you get minimal splashing.
