Is it OK if I used it to nudge several people towards Death Valley with it?

I tried to add one of my faves, "Inflatable Toast", but it seems to have gone the way of the dodo. *** Le sigh***

PB,

Haha, nice observation. And did you figure out why I picked that link for PB? (insert stupid grin)...it's because you are someone who can deal with the likes of us clubbers!

Mango...(this explains the French sigh I suppose),
I tried to find the inflatable toast too, but it was long gone. Guess we'll have to settle for this instead. It will go great with eggs. TTFN Mango!

(pssst...Martin, are you lurking any? You are missed!)

< Psstt, I'm lurking. Software death march keeping me temporarily out of action, to our mutual regret! >

<*whispering*....Hey Martin! Hope you can resurrect your software and join us sometime soon. Good to see you're still around! Good luck.>

Jenn, your haha LOL insert elicited a true LOL from this loose screw (AKA she who evidently can deal with those who are loose!).

And mango's in Paris French sigh...!! Tres bien!
I guess twelve kids and fourteen pets, at last count, aren't enuf to keep you occupied--you come up with the bestest inserts!
I stole a peek at your newest purr machine, too. She looks tres sweet.

Hey, mango!!
Hey, Martin!!
Always nice to "hear' your voices.
pretty basic, sans inserts tonite!

P.S. PB,
You had me LOLing at the kids and pets count! Glad you enjoyed the inserts and my little purr machine.
Still short for Bruce,

Ha, ha. Good summation, Jenn.
One nay-sayer = shrug; two is a bit puzzling.
I mean <using modest voice>, to know us is to love us.

< pb, I think that item has found its price floor at $0.01. Order it and offer to pick it up in person to avoid shipping costs and see what the vendor says. >

<Mwuahahaha! I've been playing an ongoing phone game called DrawSomething with my teenager. She hasn't made a drawing since yesterday, so instead of having a button that says "remind"...get ready for this----it says NUDGE. That's awesome!!! I have to go find a big book now...later! :p>

Obviously this guy has read Beelzebub O'Brien, K Street Warrior, page 10, i.e., the re-branding of Death Valley to make it, "...less threatening, more inclusive, supportive for the less secure."

<Just my observation, but this thread's HAPPY readers and participants obviously have the upper hand. Those who take time out to read the posts just to click NO on them....well, we managed to draw you here and you wasted time on something you don't think is worthwhile. So why are you coming here if we haven't gotten the best of your curiosity?? HMMM???? >

Thrifty,

What a great compilation of all our quirks/facets!! Very impressive, especially the dog in pirate costume!!!

My guess is that one of the neggies comes from a Sock Puppets.

< Yes, but do you remember how sock puppets came into play on this thread during the BP oil spill? >

Hi, David,
I gave you a "yes" vote since you merely relayed your observation on, I assume, the length and crazy details of a_math's OP.
a_math did conclude this thread was taking too much of his time and signed off a while back. He had jokingly restated a much shorter OP from a fun thread that Amazon chose to pull. Other contributors to the original and new folks who like to join in have continued with our occasional creative storylines and our other joking, and real life sharing, too.
So, that's why this unusual thread continues.
Peace Baby

Beelzebub O'Brien, K Street Warrior

In "Beelzebub O'Brien, K Street Warrior," Billy O'Brien, a young, somewhat naive MBA gets his position as a K Street Warrior because the firm's CEO is impressed by Billy's plan to change "Death Valley" to "Challenge Valley," as the latter would be "...less threatening, more inclusive, supportive for the less secure."
Makes sense to me.

The clubbers gathered around the unfolded road map of Southern California to locate Challenge Valley. Writergal, still under her blanket, had been consuming copious amounts of Triple-foam asphaltaccino, unfiltered. Her addiction to the Venti sized drink coupled with the massive need of the primary ingredient had begun to deplete freeway miles and effect transportation, deliveries of goods to market, Amazon purchases to buyers and biscotti deliveries to Starbucks.

Was this a nudge too far?

<HAHA, love it Karen! I have a mental image of dirt roads behind us, and short-lived pavement ahead of us. Is there such a thing as nudging too far? Nahhhhhh! Now here...Have a Route 66 triple foam Venti size. Don't choke on the pebbles.
Walter, thanks for the insight! Challenge Valley. Supportive for the less secure....lol. THAT is funny.>

Thanks - the book is better: "Beelzebub O'Brien, K Street Warrior" - on Amazon
