My mom has registered, AND posted! She even survived reading the favorite pimple stories thread yesterday. I don’t know if she’s seen the TMI Thread yet, though…I sure hope she doesn’t regret it when she does. I WARNED her this board is addictive.
I give you butrscotch, who has already posted things to this board that I did not know about her. Way to tell me first, Mom.
I must still be running on a few less brain cells then usual. I didn’t make the connection you are brand new butrscotch. My apologies! I appreciate the insight you shared in my thread… and the compassion. Hugs right back at ya!
That part about this board being addictive. It’s true, but I’ll never admit to that. The first step to recovery is admitting there’s a problem
Gotta watch out for that whiterabbit, she pulls one out of her hat every time I’m not looking! We figure we’re about even now, though, in exchanging addictions – I got her hooked on Star Trek and Pern, and now she’s gotten me hooked on B5 and THIS alternate universe. I’m having a blast – let’s just hope I’m not too dull, being Somebody’s Mother! :eek:
By the way, the pimple thread really gave me hope that I have NO dirty little secrets that aren’t shared by a LARGE group of people, who are actually willing to share them publicly!
Another alternate universe, created by author Anne McCaffrey – has a small but very faithful fandom. She’ll be coming to DragonCon in Atlanta this year, for anyone who knows who she is and wants to meet her – she hasn’t left Ireland in years (for health reasons), so this is a great opportunity.
By the way, how DO I run a search for “TMI” on this board when the search engine won’t let me search for any keyword less than four letters long???
(* designates a ‘wildcard’ character)
You will not get any hits for post that had TMI without any characters before and/or after the TMI, but you will get hits on posts that had (TMI) in the titles. (I’m assuming that you want to search titles only, that seems to make sense.)
You’ll also get hits of posts with TMI… and TMI- in the titles. You’ll miss a few, but you’ll get a lot of hits this way because it’s very common to put TMI in parentheses or followed by elipses or dashes.
BTW, you’ll also find all of the Westminster Kennel Club posts, too.
Interesting. Very interesting. I TRIED the wildcard search last night, with the asterisk before, after, and before/after the TMI, and each time it assured me my keyword was too short. Apparently you have to bribe the hamsters to make it work right!
I guess I COULD tell stories about my daughter that she wouldn’t appreciate…hehehehehe…but then again, I AM on the receiving end of her tongue as well as her keyboard if I do. Maybe I’d better rethink my position.
SDMB user whiterabbit was arrested last night before being taken to hospital for emergency surgery to re-attach her tongue.
As a retaliation for comments made on the SDMB, whiterabbit resorted to beating her own mother, butrscotch, with her keyboard. After the keyboard broke in half, she decided to try and finish the job with her tongue. butrscotch is recovering in hospital as well, suffering only minor bruising. butrscotch feared that something like this may happen one day. “I AM on the receiving end of her tongue as well as her keyboard”. butrscotch says though that she is in shock that it escalated to the level it did.
Explicit details of this story can be found in the next TMI thread!
