Susie, I have to ask . . . what were you trying to sell in your latest (rejected ebay pic) avatar? I see no signs of any merchandise what-so-evah.

:ph34r: uh-oh, you're onto me. :lol: I just used a photo that I liked, Stinker was quite in her own private reverie, staring off into nothing, enjoying her own dingo thoughts......I snapped it......so it's actually fraudulent, there WAS no product..... :ph34r::ph34r: so it's really NOT an original in the series, now is it????????????????????????????

I have to tell you all . . . I have been enjoying the drama that has unfolded because of the changes. It's starting to slow down now . . . somebody needs to go poke that owie!

:lol:

YES!! Let's start aNOTHer thread, DEMANDING that Scott turn the board purple, or something. Or, let's just complain about something totally unrelated, on every thread, after each post. We could assign a silly to each section and just wreak havoc, and spew nonsense. *snort* :lol:

Emily - this made me SNORT:

[Patti can give you her contact particulars, but be certain to mention when you call her that there is a massive, apocryphal beast in seashells that will need placement. ]

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

...I think you need to bring her sandwiches...

Yes, I believe that is in her contract? Very civilized.... Or.....you must drink wine on the floor of the closet with her, as Alex demonstrated in her genteel interaction......

oh yes, and certainly no SHOE-HORNING in with that nice closet lady, however a re-model may be in your future, Nicola.............wiht all those little people, the trees, and now Yeti........

do yetis wear Uggs? did not know.............:huh: I bet he wants those cute paisley kind I"ve been eyeing.....................

Nik - BTW "owie" is a boo-boo, a wound, an injury - pronounced like "wow-ee" - - that's what we call the boo-boos of the wee ones here :lol:

poke that owie = stir the pot :lol:

Hey you guys... You need to go read the latest message on the toaster thread.

GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I can't make my text any smaller ...but...he did what in her body??? :unsure::o ....dear god!!!!!

Now I have to ask, is pulling yer finger out the Brittish version of pull my finger? :huh::lol:

No, no

It's when your kids are doodling about (like a tit in a trance..heehee) and it's time to leave for school...instead of 'hurry up!' it's ''pull yer finger out!!''

Poke the Owie is a phrase I got off of another thread. I like it so I'm keepin' it. It means that everys so often you have to see if something (like an owie) still feels bad so you need to test it (say by poking).

Sarah knows 'cause she posted on that thread . . . but I believe she's posted on just about every thread. (Have you noticed, she's getting reeaaaalllllly close to 501!)

Now I have to ask, is pulling yer finger out the Brittish version of pull my finger? :huh::lol:

Yep, I love to talk! Ok, I was totally going to write more, but Ezra just puked all over the living room. Later!

Ok, Ezra's in the bathtub. God, I'm a Silly Yak addict.

I know, I tried to make my text small and discreet, but it doesn't work anymore.

I'm not making fun. I just had to pass on that... educational post.

Yes, this is worthy of registering a complaint with Scott. Font size needs to go back to size 2 so that we can make our little snide comments in size 1!!!!

No, no

tit in a trance . . . can't say I've heard that one before, either. I never know if it is a British thing or my sheltered :rolleyes: upbringing.

Ok, I really do have to go now. Ezra's ready to get out of the tub. And I really need to make dinner- Lucas is carefully scraping up all the leftover bits out of the pan of fudge that I already ate. B)

Nikki... You don't have "Pull my finger" in the UK!? Well, what else would it mean, coming up in this thread.... It means, I'm getting ready to fart! :lol:

And on that "note".... I'm in the 501 Club!!!

Well, Gnick, there is a BIT more to it.

It does require being ready to fart, but an unsuspecting little one, when presented w/ a finger and an order/polite request to PULL said finger, WILL pull it, at which time the finger-pullee lets 'er rip.

Guaranteed giggles at the right age.

Then they learn to STOP PULLING THE FINGER!

LOL @the toaster porn.

The toaster thread is in the Family & Friends area.

I have to ask . . . Does anyone know what happened to Centa's Don't Like the Changes so I'm Gonna Leave Now thread (That's not what it was actually called but that was what it was). It was one of the owies on which I was keeping an eye (<-----that's just not natural!! :lol: )
