If I repeated what you said that was insulting, then I'd be putting it right back up on the board again, wouldn't I? Just think about what you write, and if you'd want something said about yourself in the same manner.
I pointed out that your post was insulting because you asked why you were being treated differently from the others on the board that routinely banter with each other. I don't think my edited post above shows you to be a heel, but that's not my intention behind it. I know you edited your post a second time after I edited mine, so I can't be sure of the original wording that you used that I responded to. But in any case, can we move on now before we start with the British vs. Americans stuff again?

(Hopefully assuming a 'yes' to my last post... I move on, getting back to the point of this thread... which is that it be ENDLESS and POINTLESS   )

Some Bob Dylan poetry (from Blood on the Tracks)


You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow.
Been shooting in the dark too long
When somethin's not right it's wrong
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Dragon clouds so high above
I've only known careless love,
It's always hit me from below.
This time around it's more correct
Right on target, so direct,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Purple clover, Queen Anne lace,
Crimson hair across your face,
You could make me cry if you don't know.
Can't remember what I was thinkin' of
You might be spoilin' me too much, love,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Flowers on the hillside, bloomin' crazy,
Crickets talkin' back and forth in rhyme,
Blue river runnin' slow and lazy,
I could stay with you forever
And never realize the time.

Situations have ended sad,
Relationships have all been bad.
Mine've been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud.
But there's no way I can compare
All those scenes to this affair,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm doin',
Stayin' far behind without you.
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin',
Yer gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to.

I'll look for you in old Honolulu,
San Francisco, Ashtabula,
Yer gonna have to leave me now, I know.
But I'll see you in the sky above,
In the tall grass, in the ones I love,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

You make the assuption I couldnt deal with those kind of comments.Anyone who knows me could tell you I wouldnt bat an eye, and come right back at you.You can dish it out man, but you cant take it.Animosity,why?Thats silly.
The British versus thing is something you guys seem to obsess about, like any critiscism of the two cultures is an attack on"Truth,justice and the whatsit...."
When I said parochrial,and insular I meant Britain.I can take comments on ths culture like I can take comments about me.This IS the problem.This might be"The Pointless Endless Thread",but I wont make it anymore pointless or endless by going on about this,thats it.
Anyone who wants me can find me on another thread..

Okay, time for me to print some ON RECORDS here, so as not to get myself killed.

For those who dont know, NBC (Nothing But Chaps) is totally hot. I mean total babage. I am sorry KC, I did have to move on. Besides, she is currently holding that pistol to my head while Im typing...wait she isnt looking...I may flee.

CONAN...bud!!! As acting president of the CEBC, you have to let me know if I have to retract your membership. I will email you the forms, which you have to fill out, in triplicate, copy in duplicate, and initial where you both begin writing at the top of each page and at the bottom of the last page. Also Conan use what I do to win a woman over. STALKING. Nothing warms a womans heart like finding you crouched down in her closet in the laundry basket.

ALSO, I have the only reserved rights to actually insult Matt. I have papers to that affect, and are at the string www.insultMattCauseHeTriedToTakeNBCfromMeAndNBCcalledMeMattDuringSexAndMadeMeCryButOnlyAlittle.com (only joking, she didnt call me Matt, but she did keep calling me Fido, quite disturbing.

In closure, to quote my grandfathers final words, as he looked up at me with feeble eyes on his deathbed, gripping my hands.. "You asshead, your standing on my oxygen tube"

Hey, Conan -

Remember the poster back in '98 who said that she became aroused while watching Clint, and that her boyfriend, in turn, became aroused by watching her Eastwood-induced arousal? "Gretchen," I think it was ...

She's smart(UNC Med School), attractive, athletic(runner), great sense of humor, interesting, doesn't play mind games, and we have just about everything in common. I was with her the entire day yesterday and not once did I think about ESPN, action movies, video games, or anything that was once important.

Sooooooo...in summation: I will gladly take my CEBC membership card and burn it with a blowtorch while doing the chicken dance and grinning like a village idiot.
 
The endless pointless thread continues....

Yea haha, I remember GMAT. I recall because she kept obsessing about it and I said something sarastic to her and she snapped at me. She was in a few other flame wars if I remember correctly.

Yep, it was Gretchen. I can't believe you remember that!

As acting Vice President of the CEBC, in the wake of the blissful post of one almost-former member, I call a mandatory emergency RALLY meeting for all remaining members. At this meeting, we will stress the benefits of membership:

1) Complete ownership of the remote control
2............... can someone remind me of the rest? I'm drawing a blank. 
 


Damn it's great to be a member of this club     (keep saying that.. Just keep saying that  )

Another benefit: You never have to pick up your socks when you drop 'em on the ground. 

We bachelorettes take advantage of that one too.

NOTICE: POSITION OF TREASURER AVAILABLE!!!!
We are accepting resumes for the position of Treasurer for the CEBC (Clint Eastwood Bachelor's/Bachelorette club). The position is to be filled immediately. We are looking for the following qualities in a candidate:

1. A person with previous history of handling monies (a background using the sock drawer or Swiss bank accounts are a major plus, also if you know what all the buttons are for on the calculator, MAJOR plus).

2. Distribution and management of these funds and the according properties also covered therein: Remote controls, Clint Eastwood tapes, posters, all memorabilia.

3. Preferably someone that is bilingual, as we do work with people that speak in different languages (women and GUNNY).

4. To work within the main goal of the CEBC, which is to get the members displaced OUT of the CEBC as quickly as possible, which means also, when necessary, PROVIDING the monies for dates/bribery.

5. GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS (the rule is reversed for the bachelorette person of the CEBC, in which case it would be RICKY RICKY RICKY

Please send all applications to the following:

CEBC, in care of MATTR
The Doghouse
Anywhere USA 00052

Applications from within the club will also be accepeted, as well as bribes and women. Except for the bachelorette portion of the club, that doesnt accept women as payment/bribery for an application. In the event you DO have to deal with co-founder K.C, providing her with George Clooney is a good way to get the position (as well as getting K.C her's )

Thank you,
The FIRM (Ive always wanted to type that)

Although we don't need membership this badly, the CEBC embraces our fellow member, Conan, and breaks into our motto song:

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win
And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It's gonna make you cry
I've had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

Love stinks

(and so on and so on and so on....... )

---------------------

Matt, VP CEBC

P.S. Check your e-mail if you wanna talk off the board.

And because I can't possibly end a post in such a negative fashion, I'll say ... at least it's now and not a year from now (hope that helps)

Gunny, since you 'actively dislike' Dylan... would you like a burned copy of "Blood on the Tracks"? I made an extra one and would love to pass it on to someone who can't stand the man. Who knows, you may listen to it, really listen and grow to love it.

Dylan's music is definitely something that you can grow to appreciate. I didn't like his voice at first, but loved the lyrics. In time, the voice grows on you. And now, I can do a pretty good Dylan impression (after a few beers )

Oh man!Looks like you were given the part Conan.
("Claudias Theme" please someone).
Same happened to me(you do speak "Gunnese?"!)Except she tried to beat me up(did afairly good job considering she was at least 60 or so miles away).
Like the female spider eats the male afterwards!Is that why we we always fall asleep staight away?
On a lighter note;make me treasurer,no-one is ever going to worry about the state of the exchequer because no-one can understand a word I say.
Heres a good story;during the fuel protests last year I watched "Unforgiven",it was soooo quiet here,it gets kinda busy but then we work hard round here.
At the same time a certain Mr.J Daniels was celebrating his 150th birthday,AND commemorated the occasion by selling said liquid in the traditional bottle and a special J.D tin.
A specimin of which sits before me as we speak(I trod on it recently and it isnt what it was but still).Anyhow I started using it to collect all my"petty cash",thats lke "petty officer",major Powers?Anyway I could put all the money in this slightly "beat up crate!"and we could all go out to eat tacos or buy vids, or eat guacamole, or drink the"Recon Maguerita"....
