    Default The big 1,000....

    Just a wee mention and pat on the back to Dawn for her 1,000th post on the forum That calls for a celebratory slap with a wet fish methinks

    Is it time to shut her up now you think? You'd have thought she'd said everything there was to say after 1,000 posts wouldn't you

    Congrats matey

    Somehow, I don't think she's out of words yet. There are lots more delightful blathers to come, I am sure.

    WG, you sad sod - ave you got note better to do

    Cor, thanks y'all. Never even noticed that. I never look at them bar thingy's on the side.

    As for shutting me up - what do you think? I actually wonder what it would take to do that. Even when I intend to bite my tongue I can't help myself. I have developed a reputation for being an outspoken, opinionated, tactless big gob, which actually couldn't be further from the truth and I have no idea how any of you could have jumped to this conclusion

    There have been more than a few who would have rather I'd been royally shushhhhhhed years ago. But hey ho - I'm still here and where are they now huh huh????

    I may go quiet occasionally, usually when my energies are focused elsewhere but rest assured - in the immortal words of Arnie - I'LL BE BACK!! (In fact if you say it Terminator style it kinds of suits ) I honestly have no idea how little me has been labelled with this image. I am actually quite an ickle person - not as ickle as WG obviously but then she is part hobbit. In fact, I was thinking she should apply to be an extra in the Hobbit film they're going to be doing here soon. I should apply on her behalf without her knowledge and launch her into hobbit stardom. I know she would be unable to refuse the beckon of the spot-light, hairy feet and all.

    Thanks for the heads-up, I'll go into hiding now, while I still can

    And how do you know about my hairy feet?

    I wonder if Hobbits can do hip-hot latino?

    Are you comparing me to a Hobbit?

    Oh yes, you have been all along, carry on as you were

    I'm off to phone Peter Jackson to propose a new dancing Hobbit movie......... Hop-Hot Hobbit - has a ring to it, doesn't it?

    Oh you're not one of those "my reality is better than yours" types, are you? And just when I thought you were a nice, tolerant alternate-universe sort.
