Offtopic stuff

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by SaraFunnyweather, May 16, 2008.

  1. I've looked on the offtopic forum here....and umm they look insane over there. Can we get some kind of offtopic forum for us over here in Toontown too or is it ok to just post offtopic stuff as a regular thread temporarily?

    Yeah just use this for a catch-all, since it's temporary. They are working on giving us our old stuff back, but using this format for it when it gets back. Hence why I don't want to shout for a calendar or adding extra forums yet. Do everything and anything you need to do right here :) with the exception, as I said in another post, for TF/SF codes.
     
  3. Phew! I'm not as brave as Hile who posted there and got his first response which didn't seem to encourage any intelligent discussions over there LOL.

    *back from looking*

    I think I woulda put it in the general MMOG discussion forum, not OT. OT was (is?) supposed to be nothing about games.
     
  6. Out of curiousity I looked over the OT forum on here looking for Hile's post (I am a huge football fan). All I can say is I'm scared!!! WOW!!! Sara had it pretty much right in her choice of the word "insane"!!!!
     
  7. Yeah it's too bad that there seem to be so many insane posters there because some of the topics I would actually like to discuss. But I think my blood pressure couldn't handle all of the stupidity there.

    There was a "normal" All-Stratics Off Topic. Hopefully they bring that back. I read teh 18+ OT occasionally but rarely contribute. They are good for a laugh most of the time.

    :love: I did go on an insane gambling spree after this win, but left only $10 down with what I brought, which was nice. Back to the random OT..lol

    OT with regard to the belly fanclub:

    LD had her second run with you guys. (First was before the site went down then we couldn't remember the schedule) This morning/last night's CFO with Trish.

    We hope loading on didn't mess up any prearranged grouping.

    Nope, there's no such thing as grouping on the marathon runs. The goal is speed (to do it over again). :)

    Tuesday's goal is basically "Unite shopping". The majority of us are maxed for this event. If you can get your bux between runs, or during other runs, then you're welcome to come back. So in other words, Tuesday is not the day to learn the crane or camp gags.

    Thursday is the CEO. We do one CEO and that's it.

    Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I am literally beat, but it was a beautiful and great day. We went to Ricketts Glenn state park and hiked the 7.5 mile Falls Path. It took 4 1/2 hours, but we made it back. I took a raft load of video of the waterfalls from my phone, but I gotta see if I can find a cable to transfer them. $.50 a image is a video is a little salty to send them all to my email. If you are ever in Northeast PA or even NYC/Jersey, it's worth a day trip. Here is Ganoga Falls, the largest in the park:

    Overall a good weekend!

    How big of a Walk in Closet do you need?? Does it become obsessive when it's bigger than you children's bedroom?

    [​IMG]

    I draw what the customer wants, but when is big ENOUGH..rolleyes:
    I thought I'd share this interesting fact about what the people, well at least the people who can afford a new house right now, are interested in.
    If I was the kid I'd be asking to sleep in the closet..
    "Mommy a monster is in my closet, can I sleep in yours??"

    :popcorn: I thought you guys might like to see a pic of my new little luv!! We named her Trinity, for two reasons, one is because she only has three legs, and being a woman of faith, (Holy Trinity), I feel that she was led to us after we put down my beloved Bambo dog the other day.

    Short bio, she is a pit or pit mix, 2 months old, found in the street with a badly broken hind leg, and her head cut open. Someone took her to our non-kill Humane Society and they removed the leg and spayed her and after a week nobody wanted her. We went there to put my dog Bambo down and when I went to find my husband after the deed was done, he was playing with her. They took her out of her cage to run around and she went straight to my husband. There must have been 10 people between them, but she went straight for him. They would not let her come home with us because we were very upset and said they would hold her all day the next day. Now, here she is, and we just love her. My older dog is abit annoyed and he misses his brother.

    :popcorn: Thanks guys. She is so sweet and docile. Yesterday I put her in my lap and she stayed for over an hour. WHen I went to put her on the floor she was still sleeping soundly. Still potty training, but she doesn't mind staying in the kennel so that helps a lot. We leave it open when we are home, but at night and when we are out she goes in there to stay and she loves it. Now, I just wish my other dog would learn to tolerate her better.

    We'll miss you Nuku :(

    Stubby, that dog is so adorable. Look at those puppy eyes, would be easy for it to get its way with me, I'm a sucker for droopy puppy eyes..hehe

    I have an OT rant this evening. Well I return from the gym and find out the storm that came through knocked ONLY HALF of the power out. One half of my house has power, the other doesn't. The breakers are fine, so we are all like..:please: Of course the half that is out contains my bedroom and my cpu with all of my stuff on it. It's also hotter than a hot mama and I'll get to sleep without AC tonight. :sad2: BUT the guest bedroom where the dog sleeps has power, so it will get to sleep peacefully in the AC. I might move in for the night and she'll have to share her bed with me...:sword: Anyway, Have a nice evening all!
     
  38. Wow that is one freaky powerout! I would definetly move in with the dog if I was you lol. That sounds so strange with the AC though. Do you have 2 airconditioners cause I thought AC was fine all over the house as long as the central part had power?

    Speaking of AC's I feel so sorry for my mom back in sweden since they are having almost as much heat as we at the moment and can only rely on a fan for coolness. Having AC's are pretty rare among houseowners in sweden so she is really jealous of ours hehe.

    Vanessa I'm sorry about your rat! But I'll have to admit it really took me a long time to work up the patience to read through that LOLspeek :eek:

    Yeah I think I'm spoiled by AC..hehe
    Unfortunately it's not a central air system and each room just has a window unit. So unless I was willing to plug into a heavy duty extention cord and risk a fire, I just passed. It wasn't too bad of a night though, the temps did drop into the 60's from that storm. I'm just hoping the outage didn't fry anything in the meantime (IE my new computer..etc) *crosses fingers*
     
  40. You don't :D :offtopic: Oh well, tis true :sad4:

    Well the electrician came today and found the problem. Somehow one of the receptacles in my room blew, which caused all of them to blow. So they had to move everything around to check every single recept. and eventually found one that was blacked out. My mom got a kick out of the electrician's assistant who was an Amish/Mennonite fellow and was flabbergasted on all of my electronics. He was like "I'm going to leave all of this unplugged since I have no clue what any of this is.."... Poor guy...:mf_prop:

    I'm headed to Atlantic City for the day tomorrow, so the Top Toon Review will be posted on Sunday this week again. It's actually very interesting. Here it is 10pm. My Dad works 3rd shift and stayed up all day. So he went to sleep at 4pm, so he is 6 hours in. I have this feeling I will be woken up at about 3am and get told we should hit the road to beat the beach traffic...:sleep2: It's only about a 4 hour drive so hopefully he waits until the sun comes up. Then the plan is to spend the entire day and night and leave around midnight tomorrow and return home about 4am Sunday morning. It could be a 24 hour no-sleep marathon. It'll be fun though non the less. I plan to hit the slots a little and hopefully pay for some of the gas. Although we are taking my parent's Kia Rio which gets awesome MPG, so it shouldn't be too bad. The beach is ok there, but nothing too awesome, a little scurvy. I'll return to the forums
