is my 1000th post. I knew I'd make it someday! :snoopy

This obviously calls for a party. :party

I'm sort of waiting for confetti and streamers to come falling out of my ceiling.

07-25-2004, 12:41 PM
Jenna, you're away behind me... giddy up. Whip, whip.

(who am I kidding... that means you're a busy, WORKING person and I'm just a bum, loitering here with nothing better to do... )

Hmm..I haven't looked for a while but don't think I'm getting too close yet, mostly because I didn't register my nick til Jenna made me. ;)

When was that? Less than a year ago I think. Anyway, I'll check my number after this post. At least I'll be one closer.

Dear maestrowork,

That you have 2880+ posts is not surprising.
That you have 2880+ posts and you are a member since MARCH 24, 2004 is uh...... shall we say... peculiar.

I'm thinking that you must have belonged to other ezboard groups and this count is a carry forward......right?

Which reminds me!

I saw you at my local brick and mortar! You're on the first, top shelf in Reference, Writing. That's not far from the coffee shop, so every time I go there I make sure to face out your book, Words You Thought You Knew

Congrats on the wedding, the books, and the 1000th.

I consider myself quite an accomplished bum here (if I only had written 2840x100 words on my novel I'd be halfway done). Since March (a mere 4 months) I managed to achieve one of the highest post counts here, infiltrate the inner circle, stir up a few controversies, feed everyone bugs, and net myself a nice mod title. I impress even me.

My job is done.

Hey, apparently I recently broke the 1000-post mark, too. Wonder when that happened? Like Frank, I had another id when I first started hanging out here and those posts aren't included in this count, but that is okay by me.

07-25-2004, 11:12 PM
Congrats, Jenna! WHOO-HOO!!!! :snoopy

I'm slowly but surely climbing up to 1000. I saw your post at 989 and wondered who would get there first. YOU MADE IT! YAY!!

And, maestro: It doesn't really mean that you're a bum. Just that you always have an answer for EVERYTHING! :b

P.S. Jenna, I'm doing the same thing with your book at the bookstore! And everyone else's...

07-26-2004, 12:09 AM
Is MY 1000th post, too! YAY!


Ooh, why do I suddenly feel like that blonde guy in Cabin Fever?? :gone

07-26-2004, 01:13 AM
I am no where close to 1000 :b hehe

But congrats to Jenna and Dawn :party

07-26-2004, 01:18 AM
But congrats to Jenna and Dawn

If you want to call it that...


I wonder how close I am...

07-26-2004, 04:53 AM
Dawn, I was figuring you and I would be neck and neck. And we were!

THANK YOU, cool people who are facing my books out on the shelves! You rock! :hug

07-27-2004, 06:53 AM
I thought I was out of control with my posts until I met Maestro.

Jenna, you rock. You too, Dawn. I don't have confetti, but....


08-02-2004, 11:50 PM
Only fifty more to go... :grin

Is it only me that thinks this obsession with how many times we've posted in here instead of writing something somewhere else is a bit.... strange?

To tell the truth, I am a bit embarassed by my high count. What a big mouth I seem to have!


Wonder how many articles I could have done by now if I spent time a bit more wisely?

Oh, well, life's too short to worry about silly things like that. 2000, here I come!!

I'll likely be having my party in here sometime later today, but I've got to take daughter to a movie first.

08-04-2004, 05:44 AM
Hey -- Can anyone tell my why my the count of posts on my personal info says 1000 right now, but the number at the left is 998?

08-04-2004, 05:46 AM
Bear with me folks -- if this darn board can cheat, so can I...:teeth

Congratulations, Ruth!

[Post count: If you visit other ezboard sites and post on those, that's your total count of ezboard. Personal is exclusively AW count!]

08-04-2004, 08:59 AM
Thanks, li'l mac. That would explain it, 'cause I posted twice in The White Council. (Boasting about how many times I saw LOTR...) :b

08-04-2004, 09:53 AM
Ruth, how many hours d'ya think you've spent watching those films?

08-04-2004, 08:22 PM
Um, um, um...

You do the math. TE about 3 - 3 1/2 hours each, EE is 3 1/2 to 4, so average 3 1/2 times 90 (or an even 100...)

um, um...

Now you know why my book's not finished... :grin

(Keep in mind, though, that it's over a 3 1/2 year period.)

08-05-2004, 01:35 AM
And here I thought I was bad with POTC and A Knight's Tale. Yay. There's another obsessive movie fan out there! (don't ask how many times I've seen either, cause I've lost count for both.)

08-05-2004, 03:58 AM
My count's almost as impressive as my mums. Not quite, but close. Plus thats only cuz she pays for the movie most of the time. :grin

08-05-2004, 01:19 PM
Congrats, Ruth! Whoo-hoo!! :snoopy

The posting thing happens to me, too. I'm thinking it won't show a new posting number when you post in a private room. Weird.

08-05-2004, 05:50 PM

Posts made to private rooms don't show up in either place, Dawn. But my discrepancy is definitely due to playing on another ezboard.

Speaking of which...

I was visiting said ezboard yesterday, and I felt a little embarassed. Here we are, boasting about post 1000, and chastising Ray for being over 3000. Those are really, really small numbers, kids...

Some of the members of that particular ezboard had over twenty thousand posts...

Sheesh! They should go home and watch a movie or something... :grin

Oh, the site? It's dedicated to three books and three movies. You guess the titles. I'll just say I go there sometimes to realize that there are people who are crazier about that particular story than I am.

08-05-2004, 10:15 PM
how very odd. I remember thinking I would NEVER get to the 50 posts at which "new member" turns over to "board regular".


08-05-2004, 10:52 PM
Mac you just made 1000.

:party :p arty

08-06-2004, 01:23 AM

Hooray for Mac! :snoopy

08-06-2004, 05:17 AM
I am over 50, am I a regular now??

Well, hot doggy, I sure am :grin

P.S. spook, it is nice to meet another A Knight's Tale fan. I love that movie.

08-07-2004, 02:36 AM
Elonna, I knew there was a reason I liked you immediately. I also happened to notice, we're from the same state. Hmmm. What a coinkidink.

(another movie on my faves/I've seen it so many times I lost count list is Practical Magic-Sandra Bullock & Nicole Kidman. Oh, and Hanging Up-Diane Keaton, Meg Ryan & Lisa Kudrow.)

08-07-2004, 02:57 AM
Congrats, Mac! Whoo-hoo! Welcome to the 1000th Post Club!!!


P.S. ::sigh:: still titleless...

08-07-2004, 04:01 AM
Wow! So many new 1000 club members all at once.


Please line up for your official tatoos....

Leave it to Ruth to lure all of those LOTR ads! (There's actually a Galadriel ring?)

(Belated) congrats to Ruth and Mac! :clap

I was away but now I'm not. :D

08-10-2004, 06:15 AM
There's actually a Galadriel ring?

Yep. Named Nenya, the Ring of Adamant.

Oh. That was a rhetorical question, you say?


08-10-2004, 09:15 PM
With Halloween only a few months away, I'm wondering what, oh what will Ruth be this year? By any chance it wouldn't be LOTR related, would it?

08-10-2004, 10:58 PM
The idea behind Halloween is to dress up as something you're not...

So this year I'm going to dress up as a human.

Oh, and Kida wants to tell you that elf ears get glue in your hair. (But hers aren't natural, her being a half-elf and all...)

08-11-2004, 12:20 AM
Don't know if I'm dressing up this year but my little girl is dressing up as a '50's sock hop dancer.

08-11-2004, 01:00 AM
I'm going to need a good (cheap) costume this year. Last year I really wanted to go as Supergirl, but I chickened out on the costume.

08-11-2004, 01:04 AM
I'm gonna strip naked, put an apple in my mouth and go as a pig.

Escuzze moi?>:
I am a full elf, or more specifically an elf disguised as a human who's a Nazgul in her spare time. But my human ears got stuck and now I have to put on fake elf ears when I want to be an elf, only when I did last Halloween I got adhesive that i'm positive was just school glue into my hair.:cry

I taught her to spell. Really, I did.

Congrats on 1000 posts! I'm a turtle; I may take a while to get there.

But you guys have me worried: I have all the LOTRs and I have a Knight's Tale... What's POTC? (I'm bad with acronyms). You guys have me worried that I might have another addiction besides coffee and cigarettes!

And you didn't even mention HHHHarry PPPPotter... should I be worried?????????????

(I'll delete this joker to save bandwidth as soon as Cary has a chance to see a claymore. Look fast, Cary. The posse is closing in!)

08-15-2004, 04:13 AM
Liam, do you know a Claymore swallower?


08-17-2004, 03:08 AM
I woulda just said 'a Claymore is a really big fargin' sword', but I think the picture does the job nicely. Is that yours, Liam?

08-18-2004, 06:43 PM
Too kewl !!! 'Hey little girl...wanna touch my claymore'...
Love an suckermarks, Carybelle
PS-Thats neat...I love sharp things...:b I think Its just the hunter in me..:teeth ....

08-18-2004, 10:26 PM
Being a veteran, I thought it was a Claymore M18--a directional fragmentation mine.

08-18-2004, 10:26 PM
The sword in the picture is very similar to the one in my collection, CC.

08-19-2004, 01:01 AM
Fragmentation mine ?? Wow...That sounds like a whole lotta luv !!!! I can tell a real collector by the number of firearms he owns...what chu got Liam ?? Rich ?? An which are your favs ??

I think the City Father's would have issues with me standing out on the lawn at Halloween, waving around an M-18. Then again, this IS the south...hmmm.

Cary, I have a very modest collection of edged weapons and a few firearms (holdovers from my former life.) However, I derive the most sporting pleasure from archery. Jo and I have been very fortunate in collecting some really nice equipment over the years. (Jo kicks my arse on a regular basis.)

08-19-2004, 06:22 PM
Go Liam !! Sounds like heaps o' fun !! My Stepfather owns an runs an Primitive weapons shop/archery range in Maryland.My Aunt an uncle, Betty and John Howard, Mobile Alabama, were past world ranked skeet champions.My whole family hunts, shoots or plays with bows an arrows.(we are cajun ya know..)Your my kinda guy !!!:grin
I love to hunt, varmits, deer, boar.My fav though, fall turkey shoots...Bring home the bacon Momma !!!!! (and I do on occassion!!!).Large collection of handguns, longrifles, straight razors and a side gig with meatcleavers (antique jobies) My husbands friends tease him all the time.'No wonder your so GOOD dude, look at what the woman collects'!!! he IS a good boy....think thats got anything to do with It ???:ha
