Does Foo still seem the same?

To me it feels cold and not at lively as it has been.

Is it just me? =/

As a new comer to foo, I must say that it seems to be the most arid, boring, bromidic, characterless, cloying, colorless, commonplace, drab, drudging, dull, humdrum, insipid, interminable, irksome, lifeless, monotonous, platitudinous, plebeian, prosaic, repetitious, routine, spiritless, stale, stereotyped, stifling, stodgy, stuffy, stupid, tame, tedious, threadbare, tiresome, tiring, trite, unexciting, unvaried, vapid, wearisome, well-worn, -place on the internet.. which is really part of it's charm, imo.

OK, who left the window open?

Actually, I can take some of the credit for this. It's my specialty.

ding, ding, ding! .. .. except, then you would need to insert 'boring' back into the word list, and also include some other fitting but non sequitur adjectives like ''stifling'' -(that was my contribution).

Yeah it has changed. But of course it's because of the regulars who have decided to take advantage of the weather and go ride bikes. Something like that.

I've noticed a decided lack of Chip around here. He got out his broadsword and has been hacking away in Advocacy and Safety ever since John Forester decided to join the party.

Yep - I got in 80 miles after I finished shoveling out the driveway. Might have made 100 if the snowblower had started.


Yep - beautiful riding weather today.

I haven't been around much lately, I'm sure that's the problem!

Unfortunately, it wasn't because I was busy riding bikes...

WTF?! Foo is just Foo, dammit! It's a warm, safe place to be no matter what your mindset or personal issues. Foo is family, gawdammit.

Day-um. EJ123. Missing me so much? <curious Vega look> I'm only as far away as a single post or a PM. <serious Vega look>

The rest of you: Foo does change as far as who participates, but Foo is always, and safely, Foo. Agree or disagree? <curious and better-say-so Vega look>

I think there comes a time when you burn out on posting pointless stuff, but then a good thread will pop up, and you'll slowly come back to Foo.

Yeah, foo is foo man. The only forum of its kind about 'nothing', and 'everything' **except; politics, religion and graphically pornographic stuff -(which is kind of a shame). :P
