There is no "this thread" or "that thread", only the universal loom which, in the hands of the Master Weaver, binds us all together in one harmonious fabric. Ooohhhmmmm....

I've currently killed about a dozen threads in the last day or two.

I predict this won't be one of them.

Just leave it. I mean, that recliner, we know you love it, but, come on, look at the ratty old thing. And the dining table is fucking possessed: no matter how hard we try, nothing will get it level (I mean, I suppose it could be the floor, but we should still be able to find some way to get it stop rocking).

Not sure that would work. The problems seemed to start when these guys dressed in red trench coats and odd hats came in unexpectedly and strove to torture us in the comfy chair and poked at us with the soft cushions (the stuffing may have been at the wrong end).

Apparently they left their demons behind, which took up residence. We had to get rid of the carpet because of those things. I even brought in an exorcise bike, but it did no good as no one wanted to use it. So, I figure, the best course is to abandon the stuff. It might be tolerable except that damn hutch keeps banging its doors and rattling the Wedgewood and the Waterford. Oddly, that stuff only ever almost breaks – the demon must have taste.

Neglect.

No. the really pissy thing about this is that when no one posts is the thread for a while and it gets stale, the little blue arrow icon that takes you to the most recent unread post is no longer there, so you have to click "last page" and scroll all the way to the bottom in an effort to finish the damn thing off.

So get to it, folks, stop making my life harder than it has to be.
