      The format is awkward to use, the turnout is meager and the topics are dull.  Used to be a lot of fun but now deadly dull. Death to smootchie? If they wanted bland they sure got it. Mostly sterile other than crazy Dan and his supersized waist band. Yawn dozed off or left town with Mother Teraysa. Tina, Dian and Cyn try hard but don't get much support. Too bad. It was fun for a long time tho.

          waaaaaaaaah, nobody paying attention to poor Old Bill.  It's back to school season old timer.  People are busy, get over it.

          Thanks for helping get Obama in office though, my health insurance rates are going up somewhere between 10-20%.

          Really helping us out, you are the best.  

          Always having the best interests of melanoma patients in mind, thats why we need you here.

                  The q tip bandage is no fun if you like things to be cool.  Slept w/no sheets the whole time I was inpatient.  Imagine a nice tight 2inch cotton wrap for 2-3 days in the middle of summer, made me want to strap a bomb to myself and pray facing Mecca 5 times a day.

                    JAG, I had no idea you were it.

                    Bill really is a very bored person.  Face it – we're here because have it and or have lost it. 

                    Bill had it.  Very lucky man who wishes he could kayak out of TC onto an island to camp.

                                      Very sad :( and going to get a lot worse…  Cyn is soon off to sail the 7 seas, dian is heading for what sounds like a year of all-girl vacationing all over the globe, Yawn isn't real and Raysa has been consumed by guilt over her participation in that drama.  John is the only one left who is really trying (and for a guy who just had his head examined…he's doing pretty well !!!) It's heartbreaking, for sure.

                                      Nothing exciting to add ( as usual) so I'll add a story I just shared with the chat bitches—oops-the chat ladies…it's the sort of thing that makes you believe there are a lot of good people out there—seems all we hear about are the bad ones :(

                                      …sitting in the hospital surgery waiting area was a very young couple . I was sitting near them as their little child was wheeled down the hall from surgery and the parents had a chance to see and kiss their sleeping child before they wheeled away to ICU ( they let all families see the patients right as they come out of operating room ). The surgeon came in wearing scrubs and handed them a bag. Seems their preschooler was having some sort of facial surgery and they had to remove a few teeth. The bag held the teeth and dollar bills… the surgical team had gathered singles out of their pockets and put them in the bag…Tooth Fairy loot.

                                          That is a nice story, Rox.

                                           

                                          I, too, miss the good ol' days – I still think it's a shame there were people who fought so hard to bring the DS down, for no reason other than not liking it. 

                                           

                                          I still think we should just turn this into the DS, what would they do?  Ban us?  Most of us are gone now, anyway!

                                           

                                          I'll start the topic and we'll see what happens (probably nothing, no one left to debate, but I'll try anyway)

                                            What topic did you start? About turning this into the DS? I don't think it is possible. Nothing stands out, and the threads move around too much.  I was going to leave something darksidey, but don't think anyone would notice it within this format. Not that they ever noticed my posts much anyway, but……yeah.

                                            I lost my password for about over a month and didn't look for it. Then it mysteriously reappeared behind my piano, right after I read your post.

                                            It didn't rain in Maine all summer this year!

                                            Oh, and congratulations Cyn!!

                                            My brother had a significant response to ipi. I am happy about that.

                                            Does anyone else here watch Japanese horror movies?

                                            That's all, for now.
