message 1: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 4034 comments I lost track of this group and now I feel confused.

How many moderators are in this group? Did we have a shit-ton for a while and now it's scaled back to just a whole bunch?

Did I miss anything over the holidays? I keep trying to catch up but every thread I go into is just making me more confused.

And can someone PLEASE tell me where the New Year's Resolutions are? Because if you don't, I'm going to start a thread and the last thing this group needs is duplicate threads!

Who's new that's been posting a lot?

...and anything else that was interesting.

Dr. Detroit | 6031 comments I've sold all of my belongings and joined a commune.

Sarah | 13815 comments Welcome back! We spent a lot of time organizing an imaginary potluck. There's a thread about literary resolutions but I don't remember seeing one of the everyday sort.


message 4: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia Paschen | 7137 comments I don't think we accomplished anything remarkable, but I could be mistaken. It was enjoyable, nonetheless. Can't remember discussing resolutions, except most people agreed they did not make them any more.


message 5: by Jammies (new)

Jammies In the last month:

Bun went to NYC, got stuck for a while, got un-stuck and is now home trying to explain her absence to a deeply suspicious German housemate.

Clark attended a TSO concert, shared the TMI thread with Britt and remained utterly undaunted by efforts to compete with his Musical XX thread.

Sally came out from under the table and admitted she likes Canada geese.

There's more, but I have to go do some actual work...bbl

When is he due back? I had a question pending and I feel sort of lost.

Félix (habitseven) Some time next week, Michael.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Hi Smetchie! I've missed you. :)

Other than that, I plan to just hover around this thread because I don't know much of what's been happening since October(ish)... just bits here and there.

I've started two lame shebangs and the holiday exchange was a roaring success.

Lots of people promised to be around on NYE but I think only Larry and Britt made it to midnight.

Jim | 6485 comments I made it to midnight, actually it was past 1:00.

Jammies ...further bulletins:

Janine dreamt of the apocalypse and no sock monkeys survived although many TCers did.

There was a general agreement that no matter how you spell them, pajamas/pyjamas are a good thing.

Lobstergirl revived some zombie threads with relevant and pithy posts.

There was a long discussion in which Americans and Australians and Europeans learned much about Canadians and Barb got a sore throat from answering all our questions.

Heidi started a new job and entered the witness protection program is supposed to tell us her laptop died and disappeared for a few weeks.

New members joined, some stayed, some didn't.

I think those are the highlights.


message 22: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments (pssst... Jammies, it's mostly because my laptop died a few months ago, so I'm still contemplating what the replacement should be... and because of the new job, too)

Jammies, I need a 700 word summary of the Siege of Leningrad.


message 29: by Carol (new)

Carol | 1679 comments Meaning of life, please.


message 30: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments A summary of how everyone you know feels about the Ohio turnpike rest stops.


message 31: by Lobstergirl, el principe (new)

Lobstergirl | 24357 comments Mod
I will say this about the New Jersey Turnpike rest stops: I'm glad they're there - a lot of states only have toilets and vending machines - but the full service gas station attendants need to clean windshields without being asked if they want a tip, the food is priced at about a 50% premium, and I wish there was one healthy food alternative per stop. Yes, I know that's asking too much.

Hrm, how about 17 words?

Hitler was stupid, the Germans besieged Leningrad for a long time, eventually more Russians came to help.

You're born, you learn to read, you read, you eat, you take naps, you take baths, if you're lucky you do something you don't hate to support your reading habit, then you die in the apocalypse unless you're a TCer.

McDonald's sucks.

message 36: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11694 comments We also talked about DADT.

Jammies Sally wrote: "Why do the TCers not die?"

From janine's dream:

i dreamt there was some sort of apocalyps and the world was burning. the fire was coming in the direction of me and the person i was with. he told me to climb a house. when we were on the house we could climb on a shelf on a wall. the shelf was so high the flames couldn't reach it and somehow the wall wasn't destroyed by the fire, even though everything else was destroyed by it. sitting on the shelf i could see the world. it was tiny and swallowed in flames. when the fire was over we climbed down from the shelf and discovered we weren't the only survivors. there was a very high percentage of TC'ers among the survivors. we started to rebuild the world, and everything was strange and illogical.

I've thought before about how I would seek out TCers if there were an apocalypse, starting with Petra and Larry.a


message 48: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Jammers, there are some really great Ohio turnpike rest stops. Trust me, when you cross it a couple times every summer with three kids, you get to know them. The turnpike people renovated a couple near Cleveland, like the Commodore Perry One...

In this case, "great" means reeking of stale urine.

i did 80 km in three days, maybe that's why you're confused. 25 on the first day, 15 the next, and then 40.
