PostSubject: My BoBiversary    Tue Sep 18, 2012 2:56 pm

I just noticed today's date looked familiar.

One year ago today I joined the coolest, most thoughtful, generous and knowledgeable bunch of guys on a forum, pretty much on a whim.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I'm really, really glad I did. I have made close friends quickly (not something easy for me), crammed more information, suggestions and techniques into my brain than is probably good for a man, and enjoy coming here every day just as much as I did back then.

Life is happening here. I've learned, been given, gave, been consoled, consoled, laughed, cried, argued, debated, taught, discovered, experienced and participated with the keenest folks the world could ask for. I truly don't know how to thank the forum as a whole, but I guess continuing the traditions, paying forward, being humbled by anonymous generosity, and passing on the spirit here will have to do until I strike it rich and can buy all of my friends here a pipe and a tin of their favorite 'bacca. Thank you. You guys are more than family to me.

Yeah yeah, whatever..."group hug" ...

In Brotherly Love,

Cool

Congrats Kyle. You've endured a year and aren't likely to storm off in a fit of pique. I've found it interesting how some posters come and go quickly for one reason or another. Looks like we're stuck with you and vice versa.

There has to be some kind of award for the most posts in a single year anyways.....

Believe me, Brother, if I could afford to it would be done. Twisted Evil

I'd at least start off with a Case of Borkum Riff Tins. Of course I'd have to throw in some Smoker's Pride while I was at it. Laughing

Yeah, only 1 year and Kyle is #3 on the overall Top 20 Posters.

Here is a shortcut for those who are curious. Of course the quick link is also at the bottom of the home page.

It's funny, over at the Cubby the admin found out how to cross out the post count next to the name, I think Peeb mentioned some time ago it just isn't possible here. I wish it were, kind of embarrassing, actually. Does kind of signal to me I'm not necessarily wasting my time, but I ain't makin' money by using the time to work. . Kind of my motto for the last six years... "Oh well, there's always next year." *sigh* I wonder what weird job I'll end up with THIS winter... probably local film. I've never done that before (kind of a prerequisite for work for me).

You know, the real reason why I hate Borkum Riff was the memory of when I was actually smoking it as a teenager...those were rough times. Laughing Just in case anyone gets the idea to send me a case of it or something as a joke, it kind of does have a negative symbolic meaning... Razz Kind of like velveeta, Dinty Moore stew and tinned tuna.

Holy crap am I being a downer today. Sad Sorry guys. I'll shut up now. Laughing (Weird day today.)

Here's to another year, eh? Thanks for always being cool to me. Cool

I'm feeling better now. *sigh* I just have to do some very humbling things today, things i'm not proud to put together for my family (you'll all see soon enough, as soon as I ask permission) and I'm in a weird state. The negative past is weighing heavily on my memory recollection for some reason and I'm trying to get out of it. Stupid brain.

I wish I could buy all of you a drink for putting up with me. Laughing

Kyle - don't mind the post count. We are all glad you are here and helping to keep the board active and interesting. Don't worry, I won't send you any Borkum Riff. If I was going to do that, I would've sent you with a Tin of it during your Bombing. You've explained how you feel about it, I just like giving you crap.

Kyle - keep doing what you're doing here. We wouldn't have you any other way Brother!

Or something. Congrats on a year of BoBdom!
