Happy Thanksgiving to you all as well - remember to not over indulge and to be safe on the road if you're travelling.

And if you ARE travelling, remember to not leave it to the LAST minute to pack....

I'll have you know that packing AND getting the house ready to leave took one hour and 15 minutes. So neener.

This my LAST post before leaving!

WOW Neo! That's, what, a 1,200% improvement over LAST time! Put yourself down for a productivity bonus!

Have a great trip, and travel safe.

Oh, I've been practicing. And I keep my packing LIST firmly ingrained in my mind. With a little more training, I could be ready to travel at the drop of a hat.

famous last words!


;D

My THEORY is just to never unpack.

And before you all start to go "Ewwww! What about the dirty clothes?!?" let me clarify that I'm talking about a completely separate set of travelling clothes here. You just get them washed by the hotel before you return.

My PROBLEM is that the clothes keep going out of fashion. LAST time I did an overseas trip was in 1999...

??? I thought you just took a trip? Weren't you just stewing about how much tip to give?

*is confused*
*realizes that it won't be the LAST time*

at LAST i got a chance to come back here...

i've been thinking of something to say that would be witty, or revelant, or at least make me LAST, and alas(T), i can't do it

i hope that's the LAST time that happens!

Sorry Neo, I meant the time before the LAST time I travelled. The point was that I had to replace the flares and wide lapel suits that were still packed in my suitcase before I could head off on the recent trip...

I have to go on a business trip. To Hawaii, why me?
I had to go the Last time we were doing something there. I mean really once you have been to paradise, why go back?

Oh, gosh, KingW, I'm so sorry to hear it!

(Sorry for myself that is.)

I know it'll be hard having to travel so far. So I will generously offer myself as a traveling companion. Yes, yes, I'd be willing to make that sacrifice for a friend. Because at the LAST, that's just the kind of person I am.

oh neo, that's so sweet of you! but, really. no need to put yourself out, dear!

*shoves neo in closet. locks door*

*waves to KingW*
I volunteer! (i've never been to paradise) um, muffled yells? no, i didn't hear a thing.. *innocent blink*

*waves to southerngirl* hugs n smooches, you! ;)

*thump, thump thump*

llemmmmmmmow!! mmmpphh!! wnnn I gma haan awyuuuuu!! lmmmeeeeowww!! lllgeoooooooo ff LAST ingeeyedooooooooo!

Hmmmph. Fine thing when you have to chew your way through a closet door. It'll take me forever to get all these splinters out of my tongue. The positive is that now I have built in toothpicks, so I guess it's OK.

KingW, after the ordeal I've been through, (locked in a closet? ALONE? With no alcohol???!!!) I absolutely DESERVE a trip to Hawaii. So I'll be right there, right after I have a little "discussion" with Cyn.

Now, Cynthia... Any LAST requests? And do you have you LAST will and testament in order?

Or better yet, you wanna come along to Hawaii with KingW and me? Southerngirl should come along too! I'm sure King's wife won't mind if he takes an entire bevy of women along.

no alcohol?! oh gosh, bad me... um.. *hugs neo*

i.. i don't know what got into me. ..well, yes i do. it was the tekillya what made me do it!

but i loooove the idea of a bevy of bright beauty's breezily boating it to blue hawaii!

(think the wife would believe that we're research assistants? or read us our last rites?)


no alcohol?! bad me! ..um *hugs neo*

i.. i don't know what got into me. well, yes i do. it was the tekillya what made me do it!

but i loooove the idea of a bevy of beautimous bathing beauties boating to blue hawaii!

(think the mrs. would believe that we're research assistants? or read us our last rites?)

*gives pypetard a swift kick*

*gives Cyn a swift kiss*

Grrrr. Pyetard thinks the original post below is spam.

Its not SPAM, its lechery! COMPLETELY different!

----------------------

Ohhhhh...at LAST!

Girls kissing on the thread!

Can I join in?

sure thing

*smooches wysi and cyn and neo*

and hawaii?!?

whoo hoo!

king W, don't leave yet, i'll be right back

i just have some LAST minute packing to do :)

hmm. Looks like I don't even need to hang mistletoe in here!

*places mistletoe in random places anyway*

*kisses neo in a random place*

I always liked mistletoe!

At LAST! The Christmas decorating displays for 2007:

My display
The competition
Tipsy singing reindeer toy
Two singing toys

Wywiwyg forgot the LAST bit:

... and a partridge in a pear tree!

I always enjoy your videos, Wysiwyg.

Speaking of which...

*changes batteries on super secret mistletoe cam*

Uh oh.

*quickly don's Santa mask*

Ho Ho Oh Oh!

Also, I don't know about a partridge in a pear tree, but I *do* have a video lying about somewhere of a singing mouse toy complete with an LED lit Christmas tree.

But the LAST video you need to see the video of is "Mark the Moose", which is vaguely reminiscent of Barney the Dinosaur, and is capable of setting even *my* teeth on edge.

This will be my LAST post here for a while - my Christmas holidays start this afternoon, and I'm unlikely to have much of a chance to post once they start.

I'd like to wish all my friends here a Merry Christmas, and a very happy new year.

Wys

I too will be incommunicado for a while, heading to my folks's for Christmas. May each of you have a blessed Christmas.

Merry Christmas, y'all!


and have a lastingly HAPPY NEW YEAR


(hugs n neener to Dave D ;)

Glad to hear that all my gifts arrived safely, Dave D. I was a bit worried that all the poultry might not make it. And those milkmaids certainly put up a fuss about being shipped parcel post. But all's well that ends well, as they say. Glad it all worked out at the last.

Happy New Year to the lasting Lasters!

And a happy 2008 to you Neo, and all the other LASTers.

And can I be the first (not the LAST) to say:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEETIE!!!

oh, hey!

Happy Birthday Leetie!


lessee, you're about 28 now?

wishing you a wonderful new year and lasting happiness! :)

I missed wishing Leetie a happy birthday on the last thread? Shame on me! (I did, however, wish her happy birthday elsewhere.)

And that's the LAST I'm going to say about that.

Wow! You guys ROCK! :)

I am impressed.

And LAST.

Nope. *I'M* LAST.

But I hope you had a good day.

21 eh? How many times now?

You're not LAST, sillies, neither of you. I am.

nuh uh!

i'm LAST :)

psshaw! Did you think THAT would LAST?

(hiya!)

oops, sorry guys

on my LAST post, i forgot to add the "mbe lp"

*smooches neo, just cuz, and not for the LAST time*

my computer died!! *Insert VERY sad face here* That was the LAST thing I expected! I'm sneaking time on my son's laptop; shhhh! don't tell him! But when my PC died, it took all my email addies and my bookmarks with it. I can't write anybody and I can't go any of my regular haunts. :(

And my son apparenly does not have spell check!

Keep your chin up Neo, its good for your posture as well as your mindset.

And lucky your son still has a technology capability to offer - although I can see he's likely to receive a lot more chores in the near future until you can ressurect your PC, poor little booger.

Lets hope this is the LAST time something like this happens to you.

((((neo)))) i hope there's a speedy solution, darlin'. we can't last long without you. will he take bribes? (n then there's always duct tape and a nice dark closet. ;)

No joy yet. Made the boy go to bed so I could use it. It's good the be the Mom!

It's also good to be LAST.

Ahhh! Parental victimization! How good it feels!

But LAST is as LAST does....

Or in your case, Wysi, LAST doesn't.
Or is that: doesn't LAST?

either way, i'm still LAST

Neo.....ok I got nothing.

Sorry SG, I may be busy, but not so busy I can't take time out to be LAST!

S'girl, hate to tell you this, but no, you're not.

Wysi's got nothing. And that includes LAST place. Or wait... does that mean he does have LAST, or does it mean he doesn't have LAST place?

*is confused*
*is also LAST*

Let it be known
As far as need be
Silly as it seems
The lastest one is me.

*shakes head*

you are all so silly if y'all thought that was gonna LAST

and this is not going to be the LAST time that i tell y'all that...

I

AM

LAAAAAST!

...until you're not.

'cos I'M LAST!

LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST
LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST
LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST LAST

LAST!

*coffneenercoff*

Wysi's record seems to have gotten stuck. *thumps Wysiwyg to get him going again*

Dang. That sounded a lot pervier than I meant it to.

*lets it stand* ;)


*loves Cy a hot toddy to help with that coff*
*or a Hot toddy, whichever does a better job as a pick-me-up*

I forgot I can't preview on this thread anymore. *crosses fingers and hopes!!*

By the way, guys?
.
.
.
.
.
I'm LAST.

LAST LAST LAST LA....

*thump*

Phew, thanks Neo!

But you're not LAST, you're LASTish, because *I'M* LAST!

...and Cyn, be careful with those toddies, neo makes a mean one...

That's not true! I do NOT make Toddy mean. He was mean when I met him!

Yeah, but did he pack such a wallop the LAST time you saw him?

The LAST time I had Toddy... er... *blush* Well, I was going to say I belted him back, but I'm really not into that kind of thing.

geez, the LAST time anybody posted was 2 days ago?

this is the LAST time i want to see y'all slacking like this

¿wys?, neo's toddy is the last word in the world of toddies. best ever!

((sg) ..we were jus' waiting for you to throw in yer last two sense cents! ;p

¿wys?, neo's toddy is the last word in the world of toddies. best ever!


((sg)) we were jus' waitin' for you to throw in yer last two sense cents!

i'd slap the bot, but i think it's in it's elderly, last years.

Happy, Merry Belated Tidings to all and of course, LAST.

It's Dave D! The reason for our existence! (So to speak.)
*grabs Dave D and smooches him wildly* We've missed you. But you aren't LAST.

Correct, neo, *I* am LAST.

Good to see DD is still blurking out there. But I'm going to stop short of smooching him.

I'm LAST and that's that
I'm LAST and you're not
I'm LAST and that's a hoot
I'm LAST and you've got the boot

One boot? Great, Dave D., but what the heck am I going to do with one boot?

*thinks for a minute and then boots computer*

*gives a hoot*

*is last*

isn't. :p

hope i'm not the last to say...


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COLLEEN!

happy birthday, colleen

no cyn, you're not the LAST ;)

*waves to Dave D up there*

i just bought a bag of chips and was afterwards appalled to see that the expiration date was feb 12

that's the LAST time i'm buying anything from that store

Ah, chips are made out of nothing but perservatives. They'll likely LAST a long time.

Happy, Happy, Colleen! (I don't think she's been here since... well, long, long, long ago.)

I see I am the FIRSTx! poster in March. May I not be the LAST.

wish granted!

*crowns neo*

(ooo, are you a'right, hon?)

*sneaks away before she comes to recovers wakes*

*from the far, far distance is heard muffled cackling*

(loving muffled cackling! weally twuly!)

*wakes*
*discovers this REALLY pretty crown upon my head*
*hears cackles muffling*
*or muffins crackering*
*or some such nonsense*

Speaking of nonsense, I met somebody who hates puns. And punsters. Can you imagine?! That's the LAST thing I expected.

Nope. After 4 days thinking about a response I got nothing. But I'm LAST!

Wow. 13 - 10 ought to equal 3, but to get to March 13 from March 10 = 4 days. *scratches head in Wonder(tm)*

Wow. And the Wysiwyg being LAST thing? That's messed up too. 'Cause I'm LASTER than you are, toots.

ponders neo's date equation. rubs temples. decides that this is one of life's great unfathomable mysteries. adds rum to coffee. lots of rum.

warning: first quote in a series. (strongly suggests fathoming the rum.)


“I have a rock garden. Last week three of them died.”
Richard Diran

Neo: Its because I wrote that on the 14th MY time. You Americans are just travelling behind the curve.

Cyn: Funny that, similar thing happened to my rock garden as well. I'm a confirmed brown thumb, and can kill anything. Maybe I watered it too much....

*toots his whistle*

LAST!

Ah, you modern Australians, cramming 4 days in for the price of three. It must be because you are on metric. How does that work again? 100 minutes per hour, ten hours per day?

Much sympathy for your dead pet rocks. When a rock dies, do you carve its tombstone on itself?

What was that sound? Was it Wysi's whistle wassailing?
*adds rum to the Easter wassail*
Wassail. It's not just for breakfast Christmas anymore.

Oh, and I'm LAST.
*toots Wysi's whistle and blows this joint*

No, its 1 Daddy minute = 5 normal minutes. At least.

I'm still trying to calculate the homework minutes equation - it tends to vary somewhat - but using #2 son as the benchmark, 1 homework minute = 30 or so normal minutes.

*checks to see Neo has actually left*

Is LAST again.

*crowns the checker*

I know your "daddy minutes," Mr. Wysiwyg. 1 daddy minute may = 5 regular minutes, but half an hour is easily three or four hours. For homework time, I think they actually slip into another dimension or a parallel universe or something.

But you can measure time anyway you like, and yet I will still be LAST.

Actually, if you do the math, 30 Daddy minutes is about 2.5 hours, so you weren't so far off. But I agree, converting homework minutes requires pure math skills which I don't have.

However it takes but a moment to be LAST.

Wysi, of course you don't have pure math skills. You have dirty math tricks.

And it may take only a moment to be LAST, but it takes a lifetime to outLAST me.

Well, I'm working on it, one LAST at a time.

as are we all, ¿wysiwyg? mmmmmmm, wassail!
*is awash in w's*

I stayed in a really old hotel last night. They sent me a wake-up letter.
Steven Wright

I love the LAST quotes, cyn!

*yawn* This is the LAST time I have caffeine with supper. I'm never going to get to sleep!

i think i understand that completely, neo. it's why i'm still up n researching quotes. ;)

this one is sooo my eldest daughter.

I believe you should live each day as if it is your last, which is why I don't have any clean laundry, because, come on, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?
(unknown)

*SNORK* I'd never thought of it that way, cyn! I agree!
And it won't be the LAST time.

My LAST encounter with having to wash laundry was about 14 years ago. Its a guy thing.

*ducks*

Wow, Wysi! Either your Honey spoils you rotten or else you smell mighty rotten by now. And that's the LAST I want to think about that.

one last `last' quote:

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile - hoping it will eat him last.
Winston Churchill

bye, y'all...
it's been a lasting blast.

Well, in my defence, I *do* iron my own work shirts.

And Cyn, I hope that's not your LAST post - its been fun having you about.

I agree. (Not about the work shirts.) I like having you around, cyn. I hope your hiatus doesn't last.

well, it lasted for 7 whole days. *sigh* addiction is such an embarrassing issue.


People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.
Zig Ziglar


huh

this is the LAST place i'd have expected to see ghosts

but i like ghosts, so it's all good

4,700th comment!

But not LAST.
