    Triple D-Digits y'all

    Postby Apjak » 25 Sep 2009 09:28

    This is in celebration and useless narcissism that I proclaim that I Apjak have now submitted my 100th post. Funny, our newest Troll-puppet or whatever has beaten me to this profane landmark in a mere three days whilst I have taken my sweet time squeaking in at just under a year and quarter. This is the first internet forum I've ever been active on, and now while not my only, still my favorite if my Firefox history is to be believed.

    First of all, I'd like to the academy... err Moderators, Naming Freakzilla and Omphalos thanks a lot for all you do.

    I like to thank Trang for getting me to come here, and Smugetsu whom I got to come here, for keeping it RL.
    Also more props to me, as I'm the reason you two read Dune.

    Thanks Sandchigger and Sandrider (sorry if you didn't want lumped together) for saying everything I would say in anger way quicker than I can say it. You both have my respect, and I've been able to be very patient thanks to you.

    Thanks Eyes High for being patience personified.

    Thanks Hunchback Jack and Loremaster for being on my friends list even though I'm not sure what, if anything that does, but props. You guys often say what I would have, if I were on here more.

    And to everyone I do not mention by name, if you ask, I'll blow some smoke up your ass in this thread

    Seriously thanks everyone, and biggest thanks to Frank mutha' fuckin' Herbert for giving us a reason to stand up for something by sitting down and bitching on the internet.

    Speaking of having lives, Image ....I just got an extra one.

    This is my 200th post, and also very likely the last post I will make before I get married this Saturday. Image

    Being as I'm a Duner, I'm marrying a Ringer. She's read Dune, but as of yet none of the sequels, legitimate or otherwise. She thinks that the story was good, but that it finished itself. She thinks sequels might ruin it for her. I plan to have her read through CoD by the end of the year even if i have to dangle more topless James McAvoy in front of her to do it.
    ImageImage

    Anyway I want to take this time to once again thank the members of our sietch for leading on in the fight against all that is unholy.

    Imagenamely, this.

    More narcissism/confusion time!
