Yes! The one thread I know I can't kill. And it comes with pie!

All I need to do is pop in and mention the dogs. That always seems to bring an end to things.

So, that dirty bastard Doxie got a Kangaroo rat this afternoon, and would not give it up! Ate about half before I caught him, pried his jaws open and pulled that filthy thing out and took it away.

So, high alert for dog vomit tonight.

OK, now we're just having fun. At this point it reminds me of one of those contests where whomever keeps their hands on the car longest wins.

Only in this case there is nothing to win.

Yes, I have. The obvious reason is that my thoughts were so concise, penetrating, and all encompassing that there simply wasn't another single thing for anyone to add.

Maybe what's needed is a fighting dragon to sear this thread from the board.

Thus a new day dawns and the sheer bloodyminded stubbornness of You People has resurrected this thread, much like the humble hummingbird after a cold night in torpor at the higher mountain altitudes. Come Atropos and finish this task that Cruel Clotho (aka Hi, Neighbor!) has spun!

Hummingbirds are vicious little bastards; one of them threatened me, to my face, to move along away from his feeder.

You know, they hum the first six notes of "Aqualung."

Oh, I know it! I've been verbally castigated by two different species, a Rufous and a Ruby-Throated, and although I don't speak the language I suspect they were both casting doubt on my virility, parentage, appearance and intelligence. Not necessarily in that order.

Ok, so back on topic. I think being the last poster on a previously active thread is the equivalent of being at a party and approaching a group of people already engaged in conversation. You walk up to them, because maybe you've had too much to drink, but you know for a fact you can offer some insightful input. You dispense said input, everyone kind of stares at each other, then one by one they branch off - "I should call my wife, it's been 15 minutes." Then the other guy, "Hmm, I wonder what the scores are to the team I follow," and the girl is like, "Let me go check in on my friend in the kitchen." And suddenly you're there by yourself. All alone again. You start to question why you're at the party. You start to question why you even try any more. You start to question your very existence.

Sort of like the mirror image of what's happening here--where you are pretty clear in expressing what sort of thread you'd like to have, but everyone else is doing something different?

Story of my life.
