Ok boys and girls, since our seasonal silliness is only intensifying, let's milk this thing out a little longer. Here is the big POLL of the day. (I would say poll of the week but I don't want to seem overly self-inflated due to all this attention).
Original Post
Ahh yes Ninth and since Evil Santa is giving you a Louisville Slugger (Now do not go Carrie Underwood on us)I shall cast my vote for the Male! I was going to hit God only knows but I think I know too!
OHH I just noticed I made Premier Poster status during all of this silliness! Thanks guys I feel SPECIAL now!
Hiya Ninth!!
OK I voted...can't wait to see if I'm right Smile
Thanks for being a good sport ~ we did get a little carried away didn't we??

Darn...I wish I could vote twice 'cos I'm still not sure......

Shirley--
Go to the maintenence poll thread in the 'ebay talk' area and read the last page & 1/2.
Don't know if it's just seasonal silliness or if we're all just goofy Wink
Only three votes! Folks, you've had hours! I'm not running for president! That will never do. This calls for a recount, the delay will take a day. Frown
OMG only one vote? What kind of democracy is this? Ole GW would have never made presidink if they only allowed one Floweridia vote!
Well ninth, I guess you'll just have to tell us tomorrow...so far it's unanimous. I hope we're right or you'll probably never speak to us again Big Grin
Oh geez....I just remembered I'm going out in the morning so I'll probably miss the revelation. At least I'll have something to look forward to when I get home Wink
So we have one vote for a Lass and one vote for God only knows( Hey Ninth have you cast your vote yet?) Strange only 4 of us commenting and six votes. Time to start trying to buy the Floweridia vote Ninth. HIT the CAMPAIGN trail! HIRE a campaign manager, inquiring minds want to know!
Well I'm back...and no answer yet (pouting)
Ninth, I swear it wasn't me who voted for 'God only knows' Big Grin

Wow, this goofy thread has had 194 views and only 6 votes ??? A campaign manager is definitely in order Eek
Hey Miss Member! You're back! Now I'm leaving. lol I'll get you an email off later today. Smile

Ninth could always ask the dark side girls to manage the campaign. I'm game. Big Grin
Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin I seem to have started something with the 'Dark Side Girls' (ha, chance'd be a fine thing! Cool ) I think Shirley and Miss Member (I wonder what her name really is?) will forever be known as the DSGs!

@ninth_wave - c'mon, the suspense is killing me!

Sorry Roll Eyes I'm stuck on a boring global conference call listening to a lot of people prattling about nothing of any importance... so I'm being mischievous Razz
Hello all you rabble-rousing message board junkies, Dark Side Babes and Thread Hijinxers: Miss
Shirley, HandlePete, Evil Santa, and especially Miss Member who started it all by instigating a
certain Whack-a-mole on the head outburst of internet violence, not to mention stirring up a
(ninth?) wave of self-doubt to infect not only my long-held sense of gender projection online
(what, you were expecting a coherent sentence?), but even my semblence to earthly beings such as
yourself has been brought into question! (Mars indeed!)

Since you have all done such a inspired job of cajoling me out of my innermost online secret, I
will now and forthwith reward all of you breathless readers with the jaw-dropping moment of
universal truth you have just been dying to know since yesterday - are you ready!

OK that was the big buildup, now for the seriously anti-climatic truth: Sorry to disappoint all you
doubters, and cheaters who voted both ways, but the I'm afraid the majority wins this one. The
Ninth is definitely a guy. (Phew! Glad that's over.) Anyway I hope no one is too disappointed,
because if you are I'll send Miss M to whack you with a piece of Aunt Bertha's fruitcake! And if
that doesn't get you straight, there's always my new Lewisville Slugger from Evil Santa)

To all of you fine keyboard jaspers out there, the poll has been a great fun for me, and I hope a
bit of diversion for you. Thank you all for participating, and for your patience, not only in
waiting for the not-so-big revelation, but for wading through all this incredibly overblown
nonsensical piece of prose, which will finally end with these words of wisdom: If you want a long
and happy life, DO NOT eat that fruitcake. Wink Wink Wink
Great fun Ninth, thanks for the bit of diversion. Still going to find out who voted God only knows. May need to borrow that Louisville Slugger Ninth. Either that or take the Dark Side Girls lumps of coal back and give them to the miscreant.
AHHHHH.....As soon as I read 'dark side BABES' I KNEW i was right Smile Guy all the way!
Thanks ninth for putting up with our foolishness, but it was alot of fun...not much else to do during maintenence, eh?
And if anyone gives you a hard time you just let me know, I'll grab the other dark side babe (I like that) and we'll give them a whackin' for ya Wink
Geez, look what I started with a simple sentence! Who woulda thunk it? Smile



Oh, and keep a'wonderin Pete...that's MY little secret Big Grin

And here I was trying to be so clever and string the answer out until the middle of the post, and now I see I gave myself away on the first line! Can't get anything past you Dark Siders!
bleh! fruitcake!

I knew it! hmmm, and I wonder what Your name is... lol Thanks Ninth, for the fun nonsensical piece of prose. Big Grin Nothing anti-climatic about it. And we'll never tell. hehe

Taz, you can have my lumps of coal. I still just want the snow. lol Grab your gloves everyone and let's have at a good ole fashioned snowball fight!

Pete, you still on that call? Come on. We can sneak up on 'em! You too Miss Member! We dark side babes MUST stick together. lol Razz
Well MR ninth_wave, to be absolutely honest, I had been leaning toward guy but was still a bit unsure.....although after I saw that sentence I KNEW...I think 'babes' is something a guy would say more than a girl would say..??
Anyhoo, very glad to have this much fun (this is the best board I've ever posted on) and glad we now know a little something about the mysterious ninth_wave Smile Smile
Got loads of snow here Shirley I will go outside and try to wail a snowball to the The Panhandle. I would have Rudolph deliver it but I just got done making deer jerky and cannot find him???
I am aiming 2 that way. One for the suspense and one for the poorly ran campaign. Only 7 votes out of 286 hits. definitely needed that campaign manager!
Yes, Miss Member, you sure can. Smile We'd have done an awesome job for Mr Ninth!

Taz, you made jerky out of Rudolph? What if it snows Christmas Eve??? What's Santa gonna do? You better enjoy that jerky! Big Grin

Wait till the wind's just right to help hurl it along. Then I'll aim it on over to Ninth. lol
Hey this is Reno, the wind here will hurl it right back at you. Only ChiTown is windier, I mean we are talking not fit for human habitation in the winter. Right M?
I throw like a girl anyway, so I'd miss even with the wind in my favor. lol

Wind... I know about it comin' off the Rockies. It's literally batten down the hatches when ya know a Norther's on the way. brrrrr

You got it ninth! Add snow & sleet to that....ugh you get the picture Eek

BTW, pass me those snowballs, I throw like a guy (best softball league in my area)
Hey ninth,
I just read on another thread that you used to live in Alaska...so you're quite used to the snow and cold. (No wonder you live in the desert now Smile )
Even the worst Reno weather is paradise compared to yours. Maybe I'll just hang out here for awhile, thanks anyway.

Yes, Alaska can be quite extreme, you've got to hand it to those folks up there. They are tough with a capital T.
YES!!! I got it right! Well, so did most of us I guess Smile Glad to hear you are a guy ninth, that means I haven't totally lost it in my old age.

I'm finally off that dumb call, and then went straight to bed, now back up and back online working at 0700 Frown

I have to say I like the sound of the Dark Side Babes - even better that DSGs. Big Grin

Hey, we're guys, right?
Hi Pete, I was wondering when you'd show up Smile
So it's 7AM there huh? 2:10AM here in Chicago as I'm writing this...looks like everyone else has gone to bed...me too pretty soon.

I wonder who voted for 'God knows what' Big Grin?? I know I was tempted, if only to tease ninth again. As soon as he said 'babes' I knew, but I like DSGs too!

Awww shucks ninth (pinching your cheek) Smile
You're so cute!!

I wonder how long we can keep this thread alive and at the top??? Til next year maybe?
Why thank you! My cheek feels better already.

This thread has 443 hits and counting. People must be getting pretty tired of us prattling on. But hey, this is the lounge right? Next year? That would be a trick. Yap yap yap.
Good morning, afternoon, evening.

Hey Pete, I just missed ya'll last night/this morning. How's your day? What kind of mischief are you gettin' yourself into? Wink

Next year... I can prattle on and on forever. Join me? Big Grin
Hey Shirley, my day is OK so far thanks, still plodding away doing the day job. But, in about 2 hours, I'm off to a pantomime with OH and our son, with his Grandma and one of his school friends, so - that's gonna be fun! Big Grin

OK All this cheek pinching going on? Taz want in
Ninth dont't look now but snowballs coming
8880 and Shirley to think this all started off as whackin Ninth
All right 8880 how long we keep this and up?
quote:

I do believe that is a good possibility
It does seem as though we do have most of us forum regulars here! With the exception of ChooChooGuy?
Good one 8880! It is Latin, loosely translated it means "One day we will rule the world , but for today this forum will do " But whack 8880 is a good guess at least we could then rule ChiTown
Hi Ninth I also ran it through and came up with your interpretation. I updated it to make a bit more sense after running it through an interpreter and it now comes out like this "One day we will rule the world , nothwithstanding for today this market place will to work"
Latin is such an archaic language and these online translators do not do a very good job Confused
Edit:OK Ninth you removed your post? Now this one does not make any sense!
And to think I took 2 years of it in high school, correspondence course no less, and don't remember a thing. Great use of my time don't you think?

Miss M, it doesn't say anything about a whack but I'm sure Steve would be glad to add that on somewhere.

Edit - I removed it because, somehow the latin phrase I entered into the translator was slightly different than yours, even though I did a copy/paste. I'll never figure that out, anyway the translation came out very weird. When I came back to enter the correct translation, you had already posted it, so then my new post would not have made sense. Make sense? The blood vessels in my brain are bursting trying to figure this out. "Lions, tigers, and bears! Oh my!"
OK Ninth you asked for it! Nonus est iam iens ut whack octoginta duodeviginti octoginta
I editted my Latin after you cut the original Ninth , when I checked my original I came up with the ford thing also! I just tried a phrase in a translator of English to English and came up with this "Ninth is at this time successive change of place permanent impulse ship ship ship " for this "Ninth is now going to whack eighty eight eighty"
quote:
Nonus est iam iens ut whack octoginta duodeviginti octoginta


The translator now says: Ninth is now going when whack eighty eighteen eighty

Cool!

Edit: Are we using the same translator? Methinks not.
Steve - So you say you changed your signature on me? Right in the middle of my translating efforts? No wonder you had me going. This is the most convoluted posting I've ever been entangled in. What fun! Edit - Yuppers, same one.

Miss Shirley - Welcome to the funhouse!
Indeed I did! I was hoping to sell tickets to this event also!
quote:
The blood vessels in my brain are bursting trying to figure this out.
Almost like a bad B movie!
Hey, I like B movies! It's the C,D, and F movies I hate.

Shirley - Miss M says she throws like a guy (softball star). Better be on her side when the snowball fight starts. I bet us guys can put up a pretty good fight too, so you better practice up.

Edit: I waiting for them to kick us off the boards as it is, maybe we shouldn't push it. Big Grin (Just think of all the gigabytes of memory we're tying up.)
Think they'd give us that?
Not the same as group chat, but isn't there a way to email someone on here? Instead of having to use eBay message system. And buddy lists and all that good stuff? I should go explore and 'then' ask. Roll Eyes

Taz, you've got some great cute li'l smileys! Love 'em! lol
I like B movies too. Do you remember The Crawling Hand? And the original Blob? ewwww

I'll sneak in close Ninth. lol Then I can hit my target. Aren't you on our team? I'm ready!
quote:
Taz, you've got some great cute li'l smileys! Love 'em! lol
Thank you Miss Shirley!
As for the emailing someone on here you can add people as buddies and supposedly use that for
quote:
The buddy list is used for starting new private messages.
But it does not work it only shows the persons profile?
I like the B movies also but ya gotta admit there are some pretty bad ones you run into!
I think if they were going to kick us off this post they would have done it already????
This IS the lounge and I'm sure eventually one of these days we'll get tired of this...But not today Big Grin
It's great to have new friends!

BTW I can't find a way to email thru Auctiva either, but:
1) I'm computer-challenged
2) It's alot more fun when we're ALL here
Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

And everyone else is always welcome to add to the silliness Smile
Why would they kick us off the boards Ninth. We are the UNPAID help! Just think of all the time we save them answering questions and keeping support requests from being filed.
The least they could do is give us OUR own posting area.
BTW 8880 I believe Ninth was referring to my comment
quote:
Hey guys we could hit the suggestion board and tell them we would like our own private playground/ posting area
when he posted this

There were three women who were at the gynecologist having pre-natal checkups The doctor asked the first woman "in what position was the baby conceived ?"

"He was on top ", she replied.
"You will have a boy !" the doctor exclaimed.

The second woman was asked the same question.
"I was on top ", was the reply.
"you will have a baby girl. " said the doctor.

With this, the third women, a blonde, burst into tears.
"What's the matter ?" asked the doc.
"Am I going to have puppies ?".....
Yeah 8880 but remember YA gotta be GOOD to be BAD!
I would love to stay and watch this thread progress but work calls me! Frown
Evil Santa, are you BAAAAD! Are you sure you're not the Good Santa's evil twin? What do you do behind his back? Might explain where all those "elves" come from!

ROFLMAO - I've just been catching up on all these posts you guys made while I was in the land of nod, you're a funny bunch! Big Grin

So, we now know Shirley and Miss Member are blondes huh? Super! Cool But, still don't know Miss Member's real name Confused

By the way, a little warning as we move into the festive season. I was reading an article in the newspaper about the dangers of drinking - fair scared the beejeezus out of me Eek So, I have made up my mind, and I am giving up!



Reading, that is! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin
Uh, Pete, you're pretty funny yourself!
Oh, and my real name IS Miss Member Big Grin

>Although long ago on these boards (I think it was these boards) someone called me M80...I thought that was hilarious....KABOOM Big Grin
A blonde, a brunette and a redhead are stuck on an island.

One day, the three of them are walking along the beach and discover a
magic lamp. They rub and rub, and sure enough, out pops a genie.

The genie says, "Since I can only grant three wishes, you may each have
one."

The brunette says, "I've been stuck here for years. I miss my family, my
husband, and my life. I just want to go home."

POOF! The brunette gets her wish and she is returned to her family.

Then, the red head says, "I've been stuck here for years as well. I miss
my family, my husband, and my life. I wish I could go home too."

POOF! The redhead gets her wish and she is returned to her family.

The blonde starts crying uncontrollably.

The genie asks, "My dear, what's the matter?"

The blonde whimpers, "I wish my friends were still here."
Bob, a 70 year old extremely wealthy widower, shows up at the Country Club with a breathtakingly beautiful and very Dog ruff 25 year-old blonde who knocks everyone's socks off with her youthful Tiddleywinks appeal and charm and who hangs over Bob's arm and listens intently to his every word.

His buddies at the club are all aghast. They corner him and ask, "Bob, how'd you get the trophy girlfriend?" Bob replies, "Girlfriend? She's my wife!" They're knocked over, but continue to ask. "So, how'd you persuade her to marry you?"

Bob says, "I lied about my age." His friends respond, "What do you mean? Did you tell her you were only 50?"

Bob smiles and says, "No, I told her I was 90."
There was this bar and in the bar there was a magic mirror. If you told a lie it would suck you in.

One day a brunette walked into this bar. She walked up to the mirror and said 'I think I'm the most beautiful woman in the world' and it sucked her in.

The next day a redhead walked into the bar. She walked up to the mirror and said 'I think I'm the most beautiful woman in the world' and it sucked her in.

Then the next day a blond walked into the bar. She walked up to the mirror and said 'I think...' and it sucked her in.
You guys & your jokes! Big Grin
Now I'm SURE this thread will stay alive till next year....look at all the views it's gotten, I think it's up to 800 & something.....
Hey all, yup MM This thread will be alive for awhile! Here is one for you!

Do you know why the blonde got fired from the M&M factory?
For throwing out the W's


Old? Yes Apropos. Maybe
By the way Miss M good thing you were not by a mirror when you typed the last post!

Here 8880 just a bit of a peace offering!

A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game? The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap. Politely she declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun.

He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vise versa."

Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00." This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer.

"Okay," says the lawyer," your turn." She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. No answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the Internet and the Library of Congress. No answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $500.00.

The blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.
