Re: Any old timers still around?

Oh, yeah. The decade mark is a definite Old Fogey status symbol around here. Long in the tooth, short in the hairline, wide on the stories about how the board used to be.

Re: Any old timers still around?

And Aqua Net hairspray that my chain smoking Mom would douse my hair with, a flamethrower potential every minute. Ah, the fond memories of being dragged to church inside a Ford LTD, the windows rolled up as my Mom puffed Winston 100s and my Dad his Chesterfield Kings.

But let me roll down the window to breathe, and I get screamed at for messing up my hair.

I'll have you know that my hairline is fine, although you're right about the teeth, I had my canines replaced with narwhal tusks a few years ago.

I regret nothing!

Re: Any old timers still around?

The ladies love the narwhal tusk, I can speak from experience.


Best not to ask.

absolutely! Particular after this cookie-ish time of the year!

Vert, there is a rule about holiday names: the original username must be put either in the location field or in the signature. I shan't tell you more, though. It's much too much fun to watch you guessing and getting annoyed
Cookie?

I stay in shape with fitness, coffee, and high quality booze.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Yeah, a steady diet of moonshine and sleeping all day won't get you very far. Might get you a cable reality show with crappy merchandise bearing your face and a logo, but that's about it.

And I'd hate to change topics from such an engrossing conversation, but I was talking to a friend of mine last night, and I told him about the time spider1 got super fucking drunk and dropped the "banne" on the admiral's lounge. And how another lounge moderator (I wanna say ... Captain Ice?) stayed up for hours un-banne-ing us. Good times.
well we sorta faked spider into thinking (or trying to) banne us by using dm to tell everyone don't log in for awhile.

Re: Any old timers still around?

That might just have been the most epic ban in the history of the board.
