I am not sure but I think that is FReeper glock rocks that is getting a ZOT.
Addicted? Just because the net is the first thing I do in the morning and last thing at night... and I can’t seem to find anything else more important most hours and minutes?
Besides, I can eat here just fine. I can sleep in this chair just fine, too. My prayers work here. I can talk to myself, too.
In fact, if I could figure out how to go to church, grocery store and bathroom, I would not have to leave my internet chair at all.
Freeper Drumbo posted from the delivery room both before and after (a boy, coming up on 4 years ago) & he’s still here posting away. Priorities and amount of time online will change, however. :o)
Sheesh, I can remember when the little tyke was still kinda folded up and you could hold him with one hand...
Take a lot of pictures, Berlin_Freeper. She won’t be little for long. And congratulations!
Ooop, I forgot my /s tag.
Ditto. It is like keeping watch on the home in a riot wondering what they are going to do next.
Most of this news / information / discussion is BS and won’t matter at all in 10 years. You can’t try to fight every battle but you can’t afford to miss the option to fight the ones that matter so you must be watchful.
That is part of the Alinsky strategy ...throw so much crap that you miss the bullet that kills you ...so to speak.
Having “Yahoo/groups/Freerepublic2” bookmarked just in case.
Chris “Matt Foley” Farley RIP.
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave...
The 11 sings? Let me think...
1. Carol Of The Beebers
2. We Will Zot You
3. Stray Viking Kitty Strut
4. The Immigrant Song [no modification needed]
5. Jamie's Got A Guh
That's all I can remember right now...
My, you are a gracious soul! Thank you, again, very, very much.
Yep. Better get that on the sings list too...
So that would be “Hotel (Fresno) California”?
What's their website URL? Do they have an online program?
I’m 23% addicted.
Well, it appears I’m addicted to the internet. I hear crack cocaine is often used to help internet addicts break the addiction. Guess I’ll give that a shot.
