There's nothing on the train...

because I've got all the goods.

*Ba dum pum...psssshhh*

brightpearl 07-01-2008 09:44 PM

Just kidding.

Clearly it's carrying 7 1/2 tons of Chick-O-Stick.

Brynn 07-01-2008 09:59 PM

500 pounds of crawdads for the gigantic crawdad boil tonight in my back yard that everyone's invited to. And several hundred yards of calico for the quilting bee after the men get drunk and start shooting at beer cans over at Jim's.

T.I.P. 07-01-2008 10:35 PM

the train is festering with bloodthirsty chihuahuas and used boomerangs

Hyakujo's Fox 07-01-2008 10:52 PM

Ah, that was the 5.43am Blootered Scotsman, it's usually full of blootered Scotsmen.

the train is carrying loads of my childhood memories. specifically memories of sitting in the family car while my obsessed railfan father paced around train tracks taking photos of sights just as these. memories of listening to him recount the serial numbers of the locomotives on our way home. memories of his voice saying, "we're going to stop off at the roundhouse while we're out" and memories of my mother's voice telling me to go play downstairs because my father's railfan friends were coming over to watch unending slideshows of the above mentioned photos. and finally, memories of a never-completed living room sized model railroad set painstakingly constructed by hand to emulate the route of a specific freight train in new england.

watch the video carefully. if you see a spray painted tag that reads "zoowilly" you've found the car carrying these memories. my father liked to leave his mark.

zero 07-04-2008 02:13 PM

what would normally be your reply when you encounter someone and they say "how are you?"?

brightpearl 07-04-2008 02:15 PM

Well enough. And you?

I have a friend who says, "Great," with a deadly serious twinkle in his eye.

lukkucairi 07-04-2008 04:58 PM

"never been better!"

Frieda 07-04-2008 05:40 PM

"oh, you speak english? are you from abroad?"

Bman 07-04-2008 07:16 PM

Fine enough...since...the incident ::blank stare into space::

"Fine, thank you, and you?"

trisherina 07-04-2008 08:14 PM

"I can't complain... how about you?"

topcat 07-04-2008 08:23 PM

whats it to you

YsaPur EsChomuw 07-04-2008 10:08 PM

I'm always taken aback by this question and usually give an unintelligible mumble as an answer. Fortunately, in my country it is not such a typical question, so I don't have to embarrass myself every day.

One of my favourite colleagues always answers: "It gets better and better every day" in a loud voice, accompanied by a wide grin on his face. I find it very entertaining.

I did once tell some telemarketing guy that my day started out with scooping a dead guy off the floor and it got worse from there. I like Gen-Yers cos they tend to laugh at stuff like that.

Hyakujo's Fox 07-05-2008 12:24 AM

"not too bad, how about you?"

T.I.P. 07-05-2008 05:10 AM

i'm aright how bout you ?

trisherina 07-06-2008 02:47 AM

qotd for July uh 6th

Have you ever banned yourself other than in the ban yourself thread?

T.I.P. 07-06-2008 03:29 AM

If i felt like they brought out destructive behavior in me i would eventually ban myself from certain places, but for the moment i feel i haven't done anything that warrants more than 10 minutes in a penalty box.

And even then it would have to be a penalty box equipped with a brand new designer couch, a mini-bar and an internet connection.

YsaPur EsChomuw 07-06-2008 05:07 AM

Sometimes I choose not to be in the company of certain people, but I'm not sure I can call it banning myself, because it feels good.

Frieda 07-06-2008 07:28 AM


zero 07-06-2008 08:19 AM

a few years ago i banned myself from a cushion. this particular cushion was given to me by my daughter as a christmas present. it was one of those squidgy microbead-filled things - you see them for sale everywhere now but back then they were NEW! they're useless for anything apart from squidjyinng with yours hand, and over a period of several days i began to notice myself fondling this cushion too much. this, i felt, was inappropriate behaviour for an ALPHAMALE like me, therefore i decided to ban myself from the cushion. to achieve this, i firstly hid the cushion from myself somewhere in my house, and then by an act of raw, brute willpower i forced myself to forget the hiding place. i haven't seen it since. (btw in case you're wondering, it was black, so at least that was manly)

ETA - here's a picture of one.

i don't miss mine in the slightest

lukkucairi 07-06-2008 12:25 PM

sure, all the time :p

I just take my bad behavior and put it somewhere else, where it isn't definable as "bad." this is probably counterproductive, but it makes me easier to get along with :D

Stephi_B 07-06-2008 02:30 PM

Yes, since some weeks I ban myself from a place if a certain person is there.
It was strange first, because I felt it to be injust that I have to adapt my weekend activities to the not understandable feelings of this person,
but meanwhile it feels good, and a relief.

xfox 07-06-2008 08:33 PM

yes. here, when I clearly can only lurk, and be entertained due to my lack of something thoughtful, creative, interesting to say.

brightpearl 07-06-2008 08:58 PM

I might be banning myself right now, can't tell yet. :)

Wait, ezra has a daughter?!? I certainly hope she has his eyes.

I know, is that any way for a parent to behave?

oh, I sometimes throw a tablecloth over the tv if I feel I've been watching too much rot.

topcat 07-07-2008 01:54 AM

i have not banned myself. others have done that for me.

Jack Flanders 07-07-2008 02:08 AM

^ and that was was a big stupid no-no ban that was done. OK F-up. to be more mature.

Frieda 07-07-2008 11:45 AM

qotd 070708

what's for dinner?

Stephi_B 07-07-2008 11:54 AM

(if I feel like really "cooking" whenever I'll come home)
chinese noodles (instant thing-a-do) I'll enrich with some mushrooms and an egg or so
(if I don't feel like cooking or "cooking" or being any longer in the kitchen than 2 min)
bread + cheese
(more likely)
one, two cups of spice tea with milk
one or two helpings of chillout time on the balcony
(if it doesn't rain cats & dogs then)
