WHY THE INTERNET IS IMPORTANT

It connects people with common interests.

(Thanks to Claire Martin)

Update: Apparently this item was already posted by judi, who will be tracked down, re-hired, and re-fired for this transgression. I'm afraid this will continue to happen until judi has the basic human courtesy to, before she posts an item, travel forward in time to make sure that I will not be posting that item at some point in the future. Is that so much to ask?

The ice chewers get together mostly to make jokes about the lint pickers.

My mother was an ice chewer. She broke several teeth, too. If home internet access had been around in the '70s, I'm sure she'd have been toothless before I was born. *for the first time, cheers 70s technology*

"I have been chewing ice for about 7 years now.....When I say chew I mean chew, I have about 8 gallon sized jugs per day....NOW my back teeth are REALLY suffering and costing me a small fortune in dental bills....Any suggestions on quitting? I already started smoking doesn't help now I have 2 great habits."

um.....YEAH......

I'm too busy watching the block o' cheese age to bother with ice chips.

Posted by: Siouxie | 01:59 PM on July 27, 2007

Wow.

I am SO normal.

I use bottled spring water in my ice trays so they don't taste all like chlorine and nasty when they melt and I use the trays with angled cubes that slope downward so the edges aren't as sharp and sometimes I get brain freeze when I have to take the tray with me 'cause I'm in a rush and they get too melty in the car so I have to chew like 8 at once and I almost choked one day but the cube melted in my windpipe and I hate it when ppl tell me to use Kool-Aid because that's just a ghetto popsicle with no stick and the girl in the cube next to me slowly went insane because she couldn't have me fired because ice-chewing isn't covered in the company policies and procedures manual so she listened to *crunch crunch crunch* 8.5 hours a day for 9 months and then jumped out the window but it's not a problem I can stop at any time except right now because it would be a waste to let the tub of ice melt all over my desk and short out my computer and...

FD - Do you pay for your ice-chewing habit with your office's slush fund?

Posted by: SW | 02:10 PM on July 27, 2007

DD, some joker spiked my ice with ephedrine!

SW, we drank up the office's lush fund.

...oh, wait. You said...ne'ermind

Posted by: Federal Duck | 02:15 PM on July 27, 2007

Silly people with so much time on their hands. Can you imagine wasting so much time at some blog site? Next thing you'll hear about people that are so addicted to a blog site that they'll form a forum to talk about the blog site and then....oh wait. We've already done that. Never mind.
*goes back to picking lint....*

Posted by: Cheryl Howard | 02:16 PM on July 27, 2007

idly wonders if there's a site for people who chew on their pen caps.....

I was eating ice when I clicked on that link.

Posted by: Bethie | 03:17 PM on July 27, 2007

ooh! They're using the phpBB open source message board software.

I don't know if I noticed that because I also run a message board with that software, or if I'm just a nerd, or both...

"ghetto popsicle"
lol

Posted by: Gadfly | 05:03 PM on July 27, 2007

The frightening thing is the link at the top of page two, which will take you to several sites for "dog chewing problems."

Cruel AND yuckky...

Posted by: Betsy | 05:37 PM on July 27, 2007

Someone could make a fortune selling this to those people.

Posted by: daisyj | 07:06 PM on July 27, 2007

2923 members! Whew, I'm so glad I'm not the only one out there who indulges in the sin of chewing frozen water.

Posted by: Paul Lester | 07:41 PM on July 27, 2007

LOL, Stevie! Trying to make a point, are you?

Wanna make a betting pool on how many minutes til this item disappears? I'll take ten minutes.

mea culpa, sir. mea culpa. i'll have the time machine repaired at once.

judi, if you humbly and self-effacingly suggested to Dave that he review the previous day's blog items before selecting new ones, would he fire you again for being insubordinate?

PS I guess this answers a question I asked months ago --do you think Dave reads this crap?

Memo to SW: No one likes a showoff! ;)

That wasn't showing off. Anyone can cut and paste. Now if I did it from memory, that would be showing off.

No, Stevie, that would be disturbing.
