Not .....TH, you now have 50 posts today. We are going to have to call your wife and do an intervention.

Have a seat right over there.

Re: Some jump the shark...

Considering I cooked her a fine breakfast, cleaned both bathrooms, cleaned out the refrigerator, walked the dogs, and took care of the baby all night, methinks you'll find my wife hard to convince...

I just thought I'd get it over with so we can all move on

Oh that we could . . . methinks JG will be in a snit when he finds out, and this will only escalate the problem.* Now, if we could take away his "copy key". send him a chicklet keyboard like his webtv had. and count words instead - then we might be able to move on.*

Re: Some jump the shark...

Duh!

I thought 'I' was the one with webtv - AND sticky keyboard!

Alas - even 'powered up' with a real computer now - I still can't type worth spit.

I only post to keep the front runners alert and in shape. Don't want anyone resting on their laurals and slacking off.

Right?

Re: Some jump the shark...

hey...*I've* never seen JG and unclemick in the same place at the same time... hmmm...

Maybe unclemick is not only a 14 year old girl from missoula, he's also JG?

He can snit. He can have this 'title' back. I've had it twice. Cant think of a lot of things i've had twice that I wanna have again...

Re: Some jump the shark...

I gotta tell ya...................I enjoy this stuff (and my cool crown)
but in the big scheme of things it's all pretty insignificant.
Believe it or not, I have quite a full life outside of this forum.
Anyway, I will not be making any attempt to recapture the post
total lead. I will continue to pontificate though, at least until
I decide to go and look for Ted

JG

Re: Some jump the shark...

The epic battle has been amusing! Still, I plan on takin' both y'all out someday!


.....after all, I am 12 years younger than TH, and slightly more than that with regards to Mr. Gault, so I could rack it up in the nursing home when they croak!

Edit: Well crap, I missed my own mini milestone. Happy one thousandth to me! Does this mean I need an intervention, too? Where is my decoder ring

Cut-Throat, Unclemick, Wab, Mikey, SG-- I'm not in the race. My post count will directly reflect cerebral hyperactivity, or else a lack of surf. I'm going for thought-provoking quality instead of leapfrogging.

But if the metric was word count, you might have the title, Nords.
