Is everyone on holiday or just slacking off?

In answer to the question in the thread title: these people are all slackers, especially Cyclo who was too lazy to post while on his honeymoon.

this place does need a (naked ? INDEEDEE !!! Shocked who's first ? Rolling Eyes ) wake up call


just to straighten things out : i used to be "hamburger " - so have been around here for a while . somehow couldn't get my old identy back .

anyway ... i think we used to be a much easier going bunch imo .

can't remember who called me on the carpet - doesn't really matter - perhaps should have ignored it and posted some emoticons .

still wondering if the u.s. presedential election is being fought over and over again here . would that be a suitable topic , i wonder ?

for a canuck it might be futile to start it - comments anyone ?

will try to start some new topics later - going for a long walk first .

perhaps we might meet under this topic again and state any topics started or that we find particularly interesting ???

i'll put this under my FAVOURITES for easy reference .
g' day or g' nite to everyone - whichever it is .
hope to see ya later !

@Cycloptichorn,
Where'd you go in Hawaii? And what'd you do, besides the obvious?

Did you go to a luau? Drive to the north coast to watch the surfers (on the Big Island)? Drink a Mai Tai or other fancy drink? Try kava at the Kava Hut? Go on a dinner cruise? Swim with the dolphins? Try paragliding? Buy me anything? What?

@hamburgboy,
Hamburger! Welcome back! I hope you are doing okay. Maybe you and I can discuss Arctic territorial disputes again. I need to update my Arctic thread.

That's certainly the way I look at it.

It would be terrible if you and Gus were off at the same time.

I find that highly suspicious. I suspect a tryst. Wink

@wandeljw,
wj :
pretty slow on the arctic circuit right now ; i believe - just like on a2k - the politicians are in their hammocks !
ontario has been rather cool so far - but it's warm up in the yukon territory !

http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/yt-15_metric_e.html


generally speaking , the weather has been somewhat topsy-turvy in canada - farmers' fields are either water-logged (in the east) or parched (in the west) .
you better do something about that pronto !


o ye , and the stockmarket is still jittery .
we canadians blame ALL our problems on the american president/government - whatever their political leanings are - can't you hear your ears hum ?
take care .

@hamburgboy,
Oy, I'm posting just because I like you, HMBGR (can't call you 'boy' cuz you're older than me)... I like your posts and your attitude. And you can come into any one of my threads and derail it anytime - in fact, I welcome it Smile Feel free... I am inclusive of any and everything so help yourself!

That's why he's known to me as "Mr. H". Wink

And, yes, anyone feel free to derail my topics (should I ever happen to create any) should the opportunity arrive. Smile

@Reyn,
I thought your official job title here was "Odd News Reporter".

@Reyn,
I always enjoyed your topics, Reyn, because everyone could play.

I hate that the picture connection died as well as the Where Am I thread, because they were challenging. The picture connection was rather like a word game only with pictures.

Like Eva, I mostly read except for WA2K radio. I had truly hoped that folks from around the world would participate on that thread.

@Green Witch,
Thanks GW and Letty.

I rarely report any odd news anymore. My most recent one HERE wasn't much of a success. It's my first one in a long, long time. So, there's a job open if someone wants it. Wink

I'm happier here when I'm just yakking with other folks and making a community of it.

oh it is nice to know I am not the odd ball out for once.

I too read alot, but do not feel the desire , nor see the opportunity to contribute much.

I hate, and I mean absolutely hate a few of the ' new' ( to me at least) posters we have. Pamela anyone?

and that just makes everything feel sour.
