    A lot of people in the community have been expressing concern about the reduced size of their hubscore recently.  Or alternatively, they have been boasting about how big it is.  I just wanted to say that there is nothing wrong with having a mediocre rating - in fact, I think those of us with non-exceptional scores should celebrate of our lack of extraordinariness and be proud!  wink

        Wait a minute - I resemble that remark!  I think it's also healthy to bring forward concerns through appropriate channels!   And yes, it's healthy to be justifiably proud of accomplishments.

      I was in the eighties a couple of weeks ago. Obviously an oversight. And almost blotted from my consciousness, then and now.

      Remember, 'M' is not for mediocrity.

      I have seen the testing scores on the state tests, and compared to them 80% is downright genius!

    Hey, Simone:  Your Hubber score is slipping.  Did you do something bad - besides resign, I mean?

    It's not the size of the score...

          Thanks for that. I didn't realize Beyonce was a singer. I thought it was something you pushed sharply into the Bosch before twisting and lifting.

          I'm probably a little older than you.

            I guess so cause I would have to google at least half of that sentence before I could respond appropriately.

              Are you sure you should be up this late?

        That is Austro-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire! They don't work cheap. The Ottomans wanted Egypt for starters.

        If you need a map, let me know.

          Well... probably, but you'll have to bring it to my workplace. Ill be there till 9 pm my time. Subtract 6 hours if you need to know what time that is. Let me know if you'll need a calculater. wink

            I was going to ask:

            Who on earth starts work at 9 pm?

            But midnight is here and that is that...

                And night shift workers in hospitals.

                Dear God, I worked 9pm -8am for years, and never suspected I might be a zombie. Could I be?
                Not a vampire, but I do have one particularly large incisor on my lower jaw.

                Yes, you did.  I wasn't sure about the 6 hours reference though.  Will is a Brit, but he resides in Thailand, as far I'm aware - I think they might be ahead in time, not behind the USA?  smile

    That wasn't me yesterday. That was a couple of glasses of Hong Tong. You were lucky I didn't start speaking in tongues.

      It's ok, I have a terrible memory so I never remember anything, and a short attention span so I never read back. You could say just about anything to me and it probably wouldn't matter much 24 hours later.   What's hong tong?

        I think they brew up the slops from the distillery and throw in a few handfuls of regret.

          I did wonder if you were on something, when you appeared to confuse an old slang name for the Germans (Boche) with a popular washing machine brand (Bosch)!  wink

            Will Apseposted 5 years agoin reply to this

            In my defense:

            Boche
            Pronounced [boʃ], boche is a term used in World War I, often collectively ("the Boche" meaning "the Germans"). A shortened form of the French slang portmanteau alboche, itself derived from Allemand ("German") and caboche ("head" or "cabbage"). Also spelled "Bosch" or "Bosche"

              Well now that you've explained it, that just clears everything right up.
