Now I'm gonna go sit on my Harley, lean forward and hug it while the vibrations tickle my taint.

Could be, could be. Why polish without a good buff?

Ah . . . Ha! I'm guessing those terms could be taken in a variety of ways...

Heh. Agreed.


However, I do note that some of them are not worth the irk of experiencing more than once.

WB does not allow baby bonnets without chin straps. Does yours have a chin strap?

It'd be the Idiot Bench. Idiots don't get tables.

Sorry. I did a little "THINKING" and that just popped into my head.
You'll fit right in, Binx.

just chiming in

and in a general response

some people always see things as rosy

other as more of a black.

I am also having trouble understanding how I am going to have a conversation all by myself (sarcasm mark for those thin skinned individuals ) and are you planning on having donuts at the idiot table, sorry idiet table (I'm not sure just how to take the word idiet (I-diet) - is it a assurance that there will not be donuts or an old Welch word that means to put super glue on your hand and then pull a tigers tail.)

oh and if you're looking for spelling and punctuation when I get going- not going to happen. Think of it as passion and not illiteracy



so when is this deal starting?

I think you should lay off the bug juice before you pull a chair up to the Intellectual Table, Chat.....

The Intellectual Table should now be available

If you want a seat at the table, send a pm to a member of staff stating that you have read the FAQs and forum rules- and understand them and will strive to uphold the law of the jungle, I mean Writer's Beat. You also need to acknowledge that you have read the Opening post in this thread, and understand the atmosphere that we want to create here. And then one of us will give you a password to take your seat at the table.
