Another Forum Conversation Part 3:

From Forum 'attendance' on 7/21 at 1:15:

So Forum Members Dave J and Aerides were talking the other day:

Im giving up being a deskpilot and going to stop being a Dreamer. Ive been living frugal-dave, Ive HadEnuff and Nottoomuchlonger, if I dont hit a Snafu, Im going at T-minus 2 weeks!! Going to tell everyone at work to be a Sand Pounder

Wow said Aerides, looks like youre on your way to either a powerplay or being a ProspectiveBum.

Naw...just a Newventurer, Noiseboy! I plan to leave Downtown87 and Slow But Steady, Ill Livefree,

Good golly MissMolly, if you go to foxcreek9, be sure to watch out for a FlaGator or a Cobra9777! Even in Charlotte on a Sandy beach you can end up needing YVRRocketSurgery!!

Youre such a COcheesehead! Ill be there with my friends Trooper and pipefitter. Im just a smalltownguy1 and everything will be just ducky911; dont worry, were all jollystompers...there wont be any FireInTheHole! Maybe well shoot a redduck or maybe I'll become a PiratePenquin.

See ya!"

I think someone has too much time on their hands. Although, a few years back I was writing articles on a site that you got paid by the views, "likes" and comments. I wrote an entire article using mostly song titles.

Sadly, the site didn't survive. Gosh, I hope it wasn't my writing.
cd :O)

Well, it is a slow day at the marko household!

But when the spirit moves me something like this might only take me 10-15 minutes to pull together. I just study the names and then start writing. (easy when you don't really need to have a flow or real message)

This is obviously the result of logging way too many airplane miles.

Four million to be exact. But you knew that didn't you!

Way too much time inside my own head, I think.

To this day, DW calls me a "weird little boy" and I try to confirm it as often as possible.

Yes, I knew it was four million miles.

It appears it's time well spent.

Oddly enough, your DW also calls me a "weird little boy."
Have you ever figured out how many months (or whatever), you've spent in an airplane?

At one time, one of our engineer types figured it out to be almost 10 full months. That's not counting time in the airports!
