Im bored. Could someone pls start a thread that's super exciting... like the roller coaster of all threads? Maybe one with laughing and fighting and possibly a zombie attack? I don't like scary things... forget the zombie. Maybe instead, interesting revelations... that would be awesome, and huge run on sentences and then someone corrects that person for being on a writing site and not using proper punctuation, then that person responds by insulting their grandmother, then hubpages bans everyone on that thread, and Mark Ewbie comes in and tells us it's our own faults for not transferring to Bubblews? I don't know, I don't want to pre-plan the thread... it should take on a life of it's own, but all the threads out there aren't holding my attention and I really want to insult someone's grandmother or at least their nanny. Why don't you tell us about your first time, without getting banned or... tell us your most embarrassing moment? Have you gotten tired of reading this yet? I hate long diatribes about nothing, but look at me go! Ok, I'll get out of the way now. Anybody? Anybody?
Beth, I have 2 forum threads called Forumania and let's have some DANGEROUS fun, folks that you may want to participate in. I have another, exciting forum thread called The ULTIMATE Reality Show. Now, how's THAT for EXCITING forums. Glad to be of HELP.........
I don't have a scrabble board... well I do, but I think it's missing some tiles. I call it scrabble bored. I play online on FB.
Gee Whiz Michelle, why is your score so much higher than mine. It's like we're not even the same species. I can't believe you're even talking to me... you should run away before you catch something from me. You might get a stupid gene on you. lol
Thanks bB, I took out my ... personal ones... er... the ones that some ppl found objectionable. I put them on Bubblews, but then I was like... I don't like that either. So now they are hiding in my batgirl vault where no one has to see them.
Wait... I just got what you said. There was a movie of the actual book? I want to see that. Although I read it so I guess I would know what's going to happen... although everyone who watched it pretty much knew what was going to happen so... I spose reading about history is a total waste of time.
Not as exciting as that makes it sound. The complex and controversial one, involves believing I have a very complete big picture view of the meaning of life, and it all makes perfect sense to me. The one that could get me in trouble has to do with maneuvering traffic. After years of being a performance enthusiast I can read traffic, knowing who will move over, speed up, slow down, where and how paths will open up, etc., and even how to some degree effect what others do. How I utilize that ability is what could get me in trouble.
Here's something that's been bothering me, Beth. I wasn't going to say anything, but since you're looking for drama:
Why do you keep changing your avatar? I find it very disconcerting, and, frankly, when I sign in to the forums and see you have a different avatar from the day before it's difficult for me to accomplish anything else for the rest of the day.
First you had some business looking thing going on, and I was like, "This new girl means business!"
Then you changed to a pensive-looking picture for a bit, and I was like, "How profound. She must be finding herself as a writer."
Then you went back to the business thing, and I was like, "Okay, she's reeling it back in and getting serious again."
Then, for a brief period earlier this week, you were Batgirl. I was so excited and all like, "Batgirl! Yes!" But then you changed that, and if that's not playing with my mind I don't know what is.
Now you have a mischievous-looking thing going on, almost to say, "My Hubs are packed with mirth and whimsy, just like me."
I don't know what your game is, but I think we all deserve an explanation. So out with it. Is this some shrewd marketing ploy, or something more sinister? Why are you messing with us?
And don't go bringing up that my avatar looks like a young Hank Hill, because that's not the issue here.
hahaha... I was scared at first. Im used to the usual threads "When Atheists attack." The truth is, I get sick of my pic. If I had to pick one, I'd pick Batgirl. She's awesome. Ive wanted to be her since I was a little girl. You're extremely funny. I love funny ppl. I think I have an infection in my tooth and it's gone to my brain. I feel... not right. I hope I don't say anything that makes ppl hate me... maybe that's why I change my pic... so ppl will forget who says all the annoying things and maybe I will have a second chance to win them over.
haha. You're silly. And I like your pic very much I was thinking earlier. You have a nice smile and an impressive set of hubs. I ate some kale salad... it was called a super food salad... I feel like I'm on speed. It couldn't be the salad right? No salad is that super. Im gonna try to settle down now. Are you a teacher?
Yes , substitute-- I still have trouble spelling that. Crazy-- Because they had been in school long enough to see what kids do to teachers. But then I must have been crazy, too, because I got through pretty well, even on long term assignments.
Erm . . . I meant negative issues. But if what you say is true I guess you have to choose between intelligence and corn on the cob. Maybe if you explain to the dentist you want him to fix your tooth without turning you stupid he'll know what to do.
You are an Above 98 too! You're the worst kind... you're... perfect. *points and hisses* This is where the zombies enter, only we don't eat your brain, we take it and an orthodontist implants little pieces of it in each of ours till we all level out at an acceptable 90 score.
If it makes you feel any better, I have no idea why. My scores always lingered around 92-96. Something must have changed because I'm not doing anything different. Except posting in the forum more, so maybe that has something to do with it.
I think you're right. Well, something somewhere must have something to do with something, but I don't think there's anything I can really do about it except keep writing stuff and hope whatever I'm doing is the thing that the something wants me to do.
I did! But then I felt guilty cause I only transferred the stuff they didn't want to feature over here. But then it just looked bad. I don't know Mark. All I know is I want you to be happy and bubbly again, but not bubbly in the new way... bubbly in the old way.
sorry about that pic. Felt a bit malicious. Had a pack of zombi dogs run across the yard. Time to get the sheriff and that black guy with his son. To help fight them off. Bet the staff are loving this thread by the way. LOL
Im probably starting something weird here but lets all try to reply with the most off comment off track, outrageous (but clean) fact that we can drum up. Try not to let it make any sense at all. Bet you cant! And it can not be a lie.
Compunctionary perusal of data available generates sufficient intrigue to ascertained reciprocation is warranted. Remember though, axillary preclusions inevitably inhibit cohesion within the circuit, and none of us want that, do we?
Let me tell you how to make that pay off. My example is true, and involves a quarter. To set the stage, I was managing an automotive establishment with a wooden floor.
Quarter = 25 cents
Roofing nail to solder to quarter = 2 cents
Watching people try at first to pick up the quarter by the counter, then try to nonchalantly kick it free, and seeing the confusion and frustration build as they decide if they should comment, inquire or let it go = priceless.
Of course a quarter was worth a good deal more back then.
My head flips wildly around and I raise an eyebrow. As I say in a soft whisper over my sholder. Where did that come from? Then I slink away and watch in amazement as the answer types iteslf onto the screen.
Ok now a new wacky idea. What if everyone who commented here. Went through and read one hub by each person who particiaped here, made a comment on that hub (that was relevent). And then followed each person.
I appreciate the encouragement Rochelle. It truly is a time issue, with a long story some here know. I have been under increasing pressure though, from some who have followed my forum posts since I joined last year, to produce some hubs. Some of those posts, particularly earlier ones, meet all the criteria of a hub on their own. Images are another issue, copyrights, etc. I could do my own photos or even artwork, but again, it just takes time. I actually have some things written that I could just review and edit as needed. I appreciate those who have asked, and will see what I can do. Thank you.
You are right, it takes time, but you don't need to wait until all of your ducks are lined up. One of the beautiful things about HubPages is that you can ALWAYS edit to your heart's content. I started with some articles that I had previously published in print-- and added the 'bells and whistles" to them later. Others have used school papers, or other personal writings to get started. Don't resist the urge, but don't give in to pressure. You will find the time, when the time is right for you.
bB is facing trials we can't even imagine. The fact that he brings his light into this forum may be all we can hope for. Until then I guess we'll all have to read and comment on my hubs... that is the only option I can see working right now.
Always curious how beginning the assent of the short chronological segment could stir both eagerness and trepidation, she consigned herself to it's inevitability. Just 84 short hours from it's inception, at it's pinnacle, there would be degrees of relief at a task half conquered, coexisting with pressure to accomplish preset goals and obligations for the span, within the 84 hours remaining. 84 hours that whimsically switched from seeming short or long, depending on the thought applied. Finally, once the end of the prescribed portion arrives, indulging in reflection and assessment of the fruit it bore, whether positive or negative, relief, pride and disappointment will divide the spoils. And so begins anew the familiar cycle. Life is a paradox.
So you followed it? It started with bB making a post that ended with ... "life is a paradox", then I added my photo of a pair o' ducks... an bB added a photo of a pair o' docks..... on from there... ( I have a couple more).
OK-- since bB must be too busy to play now, I'll have to add my last two entries for the "paradox pictures" . I thought his/ her "pair o' docks" was excellent-- probably the best. the "pair o' ducts" stumped me for a second or two, I never would have thought of the pair o' Dock(ers), also very good.
I think the ads are individualized-- I was looking a a delicious recipe a couple of days ago and then got a very graphic photo of toenail fungus. Not at all what I was looking for. The ones at the bottom of this are plus sizes (also not me) and American Express .
They can't seem to figure out who or what I am. I clear my cache every night and I check the history every day to make sure my kids don't see anything they shouldn't so I'm not sure. Maybe they're just taking stabs in the dark.
I'm preparing my zombie costume for Denver's zombie crawl. It's the largest in the country. I've also learned the Thriller dance, 'cuz, you know, that's the ultimate zombie dance. 'Course, my theme song for this is "Living Dead Girl" by Rob Zombie.. You did say zombies, right?
I have a new idea to belch life into this thread once more ( awaken the beast)/ What if, since this thread started with the wording "roller coaster". We all talk about our worst roller coaster ride ever. I will go first, then we can listen to crickets till someone else goes. It was about to go out of the station and a thunderstorm started. An emergency brake flew on and we stopped mid departure. The catch, explained the conductor, is that we all have to go around to unlock the seats. Terrified I slammed my eyes shut and amid lightning and thunder we zoomed into the night. Around turn 4 the power went out and we lost the control breaks. Two rounds through the whole thing and 5 vomiting passengers later, the fire men and park officials got it stopped by force. We were all given free park passes for a year and free unlimited rides in the park. Me and my siblings were begging for another round. My mother was not amused.
Wow, did you make that up? So scary! What park was this?
I have three... I will make them brief. My first roller coaster, I rode with my dad. I was crying at the beginning and by the end I was smiling from ear to ear and asked if we could go again.
My second, also with my dad, our size difference made the waist bar fit with a large gap between me and the bar. We got to the top of the ride and it slammed us both to one side. His weight pushed me up out of my seat and I was standing as we started to go down the large drop... not fun.
Third, not a roller coaster but a spinning, individual caged ferris wheel. I was in it with my older siblings... one of those side of the road carnivals... and the ride broke. It stopped with us at the top, our cage upside down and a giant hole (why I have no idea...) at the top of our cage, however being flipped, we hung upside down with the hole under us. Once again, my seat belt, dangerously loose... and all the blood rushing to my head for what felt like hours. I could see the ground below with my name on it and I hung on to the bar for dear life.
All in all, not pleasant, but still... like life... a part of the living is the threats that constantly loom. The good is in finding your footing again.
Wow, makes myne(mine) seem timid. LOL. Yes myne(mine) was real, cant remember that park it was in central PA. The ride was twister. They investigated and found an auto break shoe on the ground, apparently knocked off by wind gusts. Part of the ride was broken for a while.
Hey Hubberville,Do you have any unique stats?Example:What They're Thinking? According to Women's Health, 2 in 5 Women - "Fantasize about being hand-cuffed to the headboard." Please DO NOT post anything but Stats ONLY.The thread will be an on-going read of amusement for anyone who wants to...

Ok - so you cannot stay on topic in this thread! The rule says you must change the topic EVERY TIME YOU POST, thereby every post will HIGHJACK THE THREAD! please make your topic as interesting as possible so the next post will actually WANT to stay on topic but you CAN'T ! ...
