I just posted in another thread, and boy was I disappointed that I didn't get promoted to mod, or summarily banned, or something equally wonderful.

So what gives? Do I have to have icky stuff dripping from my fingers? (sorry, NineToTheSky)

ETA-- see? I'm still a member! Is it because we've reached thirteen?

If you wish, I will attempt to undertake proceedings to bequeath my moderator status to you and hence reinstall my turgid member.

Or go to bed.

I'm not sure I want to hinder you and the free exercise of your member. The state of its flacidity shouldn't be anyone else's concern. Except maybe your wife.

But, ahh, thanxverymuch anyway.

Marley23: Ecstatic. Or whatever passes for ecstatic in my present state of bemusement and confusion.

Dex, some would say that sounds like the usual Admin dissembling and shifting of blame. I would never say that, you know. Surely you do know, right? But some would. Just so you know. You know?

Now I've gotta go herd me some pussies. Er, some cats. Where's my shepherd's crook?

Isn't burnt umber an effete liberal color? Damn the downhill slide of civilization caused by runaway liberal philosophy!

I keep checking to see if I have a snazzy new title. No luck so far.

As a newly appointed Illustrious Potentate I will consider all requests for custom titles that are accompanied with an appropriate gift.

Hmmmm. First time posting today; let's see if I get a snazzy new title?

norinew
04-01-2010, 03:21 PM
Nope. Apparently, I don't get any Dope Lurve, either. :(
This will probably ruin the entire next 30 seconds of my life. . .

CannyDan

You may not get lurve, but I can fix you up with a couple of kittens. Guaranteed quality, no cheap offshore crap. The best of the best, if you know what I mean.....

I dunno about you guys but I'm consoling my lack of Nifty Titlage with Kahlua and ice cream. Feel free to join in and afterward all us guests and charter members are going to go lounge around the pool and ogle all the cute guys. Dubiously, of course.

Go see NineToTheSky. He's got that drippy, sticky finger thingy going and he really could use a towel.

Oh, right. That's okay then.

Now, what about my fellow neglected dopers, Cat Whisperer and norinew?

CannyDan

Cat Whisperer is invited over for chocolates.

What I really want to know is, what is the over / under on the "13"? Who has the line? Can I get in on it? I've got a PayPal account and I'm a lousy gambler.

Well, if I got a snazzy title just for a few hours, I'd at least have an idea of what I should have as my real snazzy title once I pay to upgrade my status to a point where I can do it myself for reals.

Oh FFS, the password to the name change system is Joshua.

Whatever you do, don't set someone's title to Global Thermonuclear War. The system doesn't like that.

Is rum and Coke Zero all right? And does it matter if I'm dubious or not?




These are important questions that need to be answered, dammit! :p

Counting down now, the end is rapidly approaching and my cool new title will shortly disappear like ... uh... like a scalded cat into the night. Or something.

I can hardly bear to face tomorrow (sob!).

Gonna need a LOT of rum. Maybe a splash of coke. Good thing tomorrow's a work day. I'd hate to waste it, drunk off my ass at home.

Sigh.

These are important questions that need to be answered, dammit! :pRum and Coke Zero sounds delish, although I've moved on to Malibu and Sprite. And we've moved from ogling the cute swimmers to lusting after shirtless dudes at a campfire in the woods.

You would prefer leering?

CannyDan
04-01-2010, 11:05 PM
And maybe wrangling. I know something about wrangling. And leering.

And rum too, as it happens.

So, it's rum, and leering, and wrangling. It's a date. Don't forget to bring chocolate.

Well, sometimes my sister (who lives with me) will buy those 'girly drinks' like Bartles and Jayme's Fuzzy Navels, and I'll drink one, but kick it up a notch with some vodka in a glass with some ice. . .

As far as the rum and Coke Zero (or Diet Coke if I'm in a bar or restaurant), if I'm gonna drink my calories, they'd better have a kick to them!;)

(Sob!) Custom titles are gone, and I hardly had a chance to lord it over people.

Rum, here I come. Now where did I leave the IV infusion kit?
