    Congrats, I hit 10 in Sept.

    Much less drama now, but then it's been through in waves over the years. Somethings else is always bound to pop up....

    Hey D. You married yet? Katie got married in October. Baby due any day now (just kidding, but you knew that, right?). I miss talking to you. You were one of my favorites.

    Yer Pal,
    Jethro (wishing I had time) Elvis

    Wait are you kidding about the wedding or just the baby? Not married yet, but we've been engaged for four years now! ;) The missus is a librarian did you know that? :D I just got a new job as a bank teller and that's going well. I wrote a book (epic fantasy) but haven't gotten it published yet but that was four years ago.

    Wow I've been here longer than you Bonzie?! Does that mean I get to countermand all your orders? ;) :D How is your daughter btw? What is she doing now? I can't even remember what her major was or maybe she didn't have one when I knew her.

    Congratulations on 10 years! For some reason I always remember a thread you started asking people to post what they sounded like.

    You mean like the sound of your voice? I don't remember that at all, but my memory is pretty bad ;)

    My how things have changed. I've been here for almost 9 years now. And I do remember frequently checking my post count and trying to post 100 times a day and ridiculous stuff like that. I was actually the #2 poster for around a year.

    100 posts a day is just crazy! I can barely get that many in a month!

    If it's important, you find ways.

    I think one benefit for not having those Week that Was threads is I really no longer care about my post count. Probably that, and I have a long way to go to get to 32,000 posts but it wasn't like before where I was checking my profile page almost daily to see how many posts I had.

    And boy was it important. Not a lot to do when I was 14. We didn't have cable and I couldn't drive or have a job. I just sat down at the TrekBBS and talked about Star Trek for 12 hours a day. :lol:

    Yeah, I practically lived here.

    Not that a whole lot has changed in that regard. I just care a lot less about my status.

    Yep. I didn't join until after I had to stop working. Then I started to stay up late and discovered DS9, and went hunting for fellow fans.

    Lex is doing great. She lives in Massachusetts and works in a good company. She's getting married in February, and my house is filling up with all the stuff necessary for a proper wedding. :D

    She still hates UF though. ;)
