Why certainly this is OUR thread Miss M but visitors are welcome to contribute. OHH Perhaps a PayPal contribution button is in order!

Everyone is welcome but I think they're getting sick of us

Probably just sitting back laughing their arses off at at our frivolties!
Sick of us, not with over 6000 views as of now,if they think we are barmy what about those who are just watching our ramblings.

Come on anyone reading this join in the fun of this interactive lunacy, otherwise you will just have to watch TV or something else like being sociable face to face, oooh yuk Frown
I believe somewhere in this thread I posted that I wondered if we could have 5,000 hits by New Years! We have BLOWN that one away!
I am truthfully quite surprised that Auctiva Jeff has not stopped in to say hello or to tell us to BEHAVE ourselves!
Edit: AHHH see what you started Miss M all this ESP and stuff and now I have gotten stuck in your head. "You are getting SLEEPY" keep your eyes on the gold watch.
believe somewhere in this thread I posted that I wondered if we could have 5,000 hits by New Years! We have BLOWN that one away!

I remember seeing that too somewhere, but NOT gonna go back & look for it! At least we are entertaining to some, and probably ridiculous to others. Oh well Smile

I bet Auctiva Jeff would LOVE to contribute to this thread, but I'm sure it wouldn't be 'proffessional' for him to do so. (Too bad, too)

And BTW I don't need a gold watch to get 'sleepy' Big Grin Got up way too early today!
On the other hand some of these hits may result in new customers unles we crash the servers, I hope these servers are giggerish proof like e-mail servers need to be Wink

Edit - they certainly don't spell check - gibberish Red Face
Yeah but how will I mesmerize you if I do not first HYPNOTIZE you?
OH my single life is changing me in so many ways!
Hurry up New Years Eve. Wonder if it is true what they say that what you are doing at midnight New Years Eve will follow you through the New Year?
OH great now I have to worry about being stalked by a 23 year old HOTTIE all year.
I just may crawl under a rock instead!
Sorry Taz, but I'm 'mesmerize-proof' these days Big Grin

I remember (sorta) what it was like to be single, SO long ago Big Grin

Choo, I would think they'd shut us down if there was any dangers to their servers, right?? I'm sure they will eventually, I'm getting the feeling this thread's gonna go on forever.....

edit---I'll bet they have ALOT of new customers because of this.
I think Choo was joking about crashing their servers.
They may have picked up a few new lunatics.
Boy eBay sales stink right now!Anyone else having problems?
Hello there all you wild and wacky denizens of the BIG thread. I just know you really missed me (not really) but it seems like I have been doing the light fandango all over the Reno/Lake Tahoe playground. It's nice to have people in from out of town, but it can get awfully busy showing them around, not to mention a drag on the pocketbook. Well it will definitely go back to the usual boredom after the 1st when they're all gone. (Boo Hoo).

I've just been doing a lot of quick reading trying to get caught up on all the posts but it is nearly impossible, this thread is gigantic! I 'm glad to see Choo back in the game (you were gone a long time, Choo). Pete, glad you and your's are over the worst. There's nothing worse than being sick, especially during the holidays. Taz, great save getting Miss S out of that playground fiasco. I copied the link just in case it happens to me. Great move. Speaking of great moves, sounds like you're revved up to make a few yourself.

Miss M, what's with a frozen rats? Is hubby a demented psycho or what? (Rhetorical, you don't need to answer that). Glad you are getting a day of sunshine at least. Miss S, love your new avatar, and the cookies sound delicious, can't wait to try one or two (or three or four). Wink

Anyway it's good to be back on the big board with all you highjinxers, but now they want to go to the casinos at the Lake and win some more money. Personally, I suck at gambling, it's just not my thing. If I don't check in by New Years, then I want to wish everybody a very Happy New Year, may we all get rich in 2008! Yeah! Big Grin
Good luck at the gaming tables Ninth, my sister lives in Vegas but I have never made it out there. One of these days I guess.
I am going to have to re-read a few things I missed the frozen rats somehow?
Happy New Years Ninth and everyone else!
Edit: OK went back and found the rats. Having had a pet shop before Miss M, my guess is you guys have a snake or some other meat eating reptile? Either that or your hubby picked up some frozen rats as a favor for a friend with one of the above?
I do not know how I missed that one as that was the post were I figured out you were married. Gee figured out? That just does not sound right, it was there in black and white!
Hi Taz - Vegas is a great place to visit, but I haven't been there for years myself. I keep meaning to get down there. I'd like to add my vote for your current avatar, definitely the best one.

How could you miss the frozen rats in the freezer? Miss M only mentioned it in one post, so it was easy to miss. I'm dying to know more about that, but don't want to push any buttons. Although your explanation sounds quite reasonable. Edit- I had a pet snake once, it ate baby mice but the hassle of keeping it fed was just too much, plus it escaped from it's cage once, so that was enough of that - bye bye Mr Snake.
Hi Ninth,

Really glad to see you back, thought maybe you were sick too but NO you're out having a good time IN THE SUN no doubt Smile

No, the rat thing isn't for a pet snake (I wish it was) I was just so shocked when I went to get some ice and thought, hmmm what's in these baggies..YUCK!! Almost had a heart attack! Our neighborhood is overrun with rats because of SO many illegals living in each household the garbage is just overwhelming. City won't do anything about it...god forbid they "offend" anyone by insisting they abide by housing codes...

Anyway, hubby ran over 2 rats with his car in the alley so he bagged 'em and he's gonna drop them off at our alderman's office.

Does anyone else think this is just wrong to keep them in the freezer next to the food?? (which is already thrown out) *shudder* Big Grin Big Grin

To his credit at least, he tried to keep them frozen outside cos it's been so cold but our Rott kept getting ahold of them anyway.

Just one big EWWWWW from me.........

BTW ninth, baby mice are so cute I could NEVER feed them to a snake ... Big ole' rats however are another story Eek

Anyway, glad you checked in!!
I noticed the frozen rats but who am I to criticise what you gals and guys have to eat at Christmas, yuk,
But some of the stuff you guys eat sounds a bit funny too! "bangers and mash, or toad in the hole"
What exactly is a "toad in the hole"
How is it that gifts around Christmas are more likely to be what people don't want rather than what you would like to receive. Roll Eyes

Think I will risk a diplomatic incident and say I prefer squirrels any day, especially as the foxes usually catch the wood pidgeons first.

Everthought of letting the snake loose to eat all the rats ?
Due to our imaginative cuisine toad in the hole is bangers in a batter pudding Big Grin

And for the 'greens' among us - Cabbage and Brussel lovers unite, or if you can't boil it it ain't British !
No prob with squirrels here (aren't they kind of 'stringy'?) but what are those things Taz mentioned" Especially 'toad in the hole'? egads!

Edit - Ok, but what is a 'banger'?
Choo, that's just what I wanted for Christmas .. a big snake! There are tons of stray cats around here and they can't even keep up with the rats. It's gettin to be like one of those horror movies Eek

Bangers are hot dogs right??
Bangers are sausages, probably called so because if the skins are not pricked before cooking the can explode.

They are very similar to what I have seen as hotdogs but I thought the term hotdog included the 'bun' or 'roll' the sausgages were put in.

Errm, don't the cats catch the rats or is it the other way around ?
The rats are probably eating the cats.

Just looked it up: 'bangers and mash' are sausages and mashed potatoes. Ain't I smart. Big Grin (sounds pretty good)

edit - Just when I was acting smart, Choo pops in with the explanation! Smile I bet forgetting to prick the sausage can result in a really memorable explosion.
"Luverly grub" as my dad used to say.

Keep the fancy stuff give me a squirrel pie any day.

When he was in the army during WW2 in mainland Europe sparrow pie was on the 'menu' (or rather eat this or nothing) it was a case of leaving the beak at the side of the plate. Not sure what they did with the head though, rather not pursue that.
We call it ER (emerg. room)
The hospitals call it ED (emerg. dept)

That's where I work some of the time, which is why someone couldn't get it thru his thick head why I was so creeped out at rats in the freezer Big Grin Big Grin Eek
Can't believe some of the stuff I see at work, I mean the worst of the worst, burns, gunshots, etc. But rats?? Again I say EWWWWW!

EDIT---when I said "someone couldn't get it thru his thick head' I was, of course, referring to hubby Smile
However, you're all guys, so I have to wonder if any of you'd do the same thing????? Big Grin
No way, goodness only knows where they had been before being roadkill, and besides your guys car tyres were probably dirty too and contaminated them Big Grin Wink

Edit - Well ninth I thought they got in there by themselves (big clever rats) or had just been dropped in there Eek
For once we have a numerical advantage! (Guess we always did) However, I'm off to the movies with my daughter, going to see 'I am Legend', Oh boy. But I know Choo can handle things while I am gone. Where is that Shirley Girl any way?

edit - outnumbered but not outgunned.
The way you two were laying in to Steve last night Eek

I think you are doing alright here at the moment as there is only two of us guys at present so we are out numbered 1 to 2 !

Edit - Ninth going, help !
Have fun at the movies Ninth--let us know if it was any good.

I'm gonna start trying to get some dinner together. Should be a neat trick since I can't cook Roll Eyes
I never found not being able to cook was ever a problem, when you are hungry enough you read what it says on the side of the can and go from there.

I survived long enough to tie the knot with a good cook. Good night all Smile
Gee I missed all this food talk and conversation about rats and ERs and A&E. I thought A&E was our TV network!
Miss M I use to own a pet shop and sold frozen rats, mice ,pinkies and fuzzies. Kept em in the freezer right by the TV dinners and ice cream I would eat for lunch.
