So really really, that's it. We're just supposed to accept that we misread the question (and Jams' confirmation) without further explanation?

I think the tiny shred of credibility that Spring/Jams brought to the debate here just disappeared out of the virtual window up in this joint.

I was in a play in 4th grade about Paul Bunyan.  I don't even remember what my part was.  I do remember it was really bad (just a 1 class play, not a big thing) and the table fell over that was a cave.

The headline today was that Palin is considering a Senate run. She's about as articulate as the Brain Trust here.

It didn't show up on my news, so I googled & yes you are right.  That would really make our local politics hilariously interesting, that's for sure.  She'd have to explain why it would be good to vote for her when she doesn't even live here anymore (at least rumor says she's at her summer home in Airzona most of the year now).  And just her antics of course would be interesting.  She won't do it....it would be too much like work, she likes the spotlight.

Um, for the record, I didn't bring up the Paul Bunyan legend.

I've been a certified trainer at work for over 8 years now.  I'm pretty good at it, but I don't enjoy it much so I'm glad I only have to do it occasionally.  It helps to know that when I'm assigned to train someone, it won't last forever, so I can put everything into it.  If I were a trainer all the time, I'd likely lose the will to live.

Nobody was jumping on anything and there were a number of sarcastic replies back, quite a number of them..

Why on earth would I waste the time?  You went on and on about how great it was that you were so close to the ocean, too bad that others aren't close to the ocean, but then wait...you don't like the ocean there because it's dirty and you haven't found the time to go, will wait for the cruise (I didn't know you were going on a cruise, you should have mentioned it!!!!)....until I mention that I was in the ocean just a week or so ago and poof, suddenly you have been to the beach.  Just too funny.
