You never said, "Honey, are you awake?"
nudge, nudge. wink, wink. Say no more...

After I did that the first time, it was made very clear it was not acceptable behavior.

I've had it happen a few times. I tend to be on DC really early sometimes.

lol, that reminds me of a joke.

an older chinese couple went to bed late one night after closing their restaurant. the husband, feeling frisky, nudged his wife gently, saying, "honey, how about a little 69? "

the wife questioned, "why you want beef and broccoli at this time of night?"...



vit, i have been the only visible member online many times over the years, but not as much over recent times. yeah, 3 to 5 am seems to be the leaner hours.

with our members from england (gmt), italy (gmt +2), africa (gmt +1, +2, or+3), india (gmt +5.5), and oz (gmt +8, +9.5, and +10), and of course from eastern to western u.s., canada, and all the way to hawaii (gmt -5, -6, -7, -8, -9, and -10) it's become much more difficult to be king of the mountain.

geez, i remember when there were only a few hundred members, and it was common to log on at night a be the only member with less than a page of guest lurkers. back when elfie and mj were the only mods on patrol.

to steal a line from a women's cigarette add, we've come a long way, baby.

zhi, you're almost always the first online to start a new day, well, in relevance to est.

vit, et al, if you log in during those wee hours, it's important to report spam whenever you see it (but not my posts, please ).

zhi has often gracefully thanked people for doing so as she is the first to deal with it.


btw, the irish invented the term wee hours due to the effects of guinness and prostate cancer.

and aunt bea, when no one's around at 3am, try lurker surfing. it's funand educational at tbe same time.

OK, BT, I'll ask... IS #69 beef and broccoli on a Chinese menu?
I swear all those restaurants use the same numbered menu. You should know

yep, they're all printed by the same guy in chinatown. his name is pete.

his brother prints the instructions seen on chopsticks tbat says, "please to enjoy your excellent chinese food with traditional chopsticks".

the fortune cookie gut hates them. keeps trying to steal their business by sending them threatening fortune cookies. but like everyone else, no one really believes a fortune cookie...

Most of the traditional disposable chopsticks are made in Georgia now.

Strange but, true!
