Posted on 10/18/2001 8:56:47 PM PDT by Texaggie79

Personally, I realized that this World Wide Web thingamajig has other sites on it. Then I realized that I have legs. I then realized that there is a world outside.

Strange world that is. I'm not going back. </ sarcasm>

I discovered a woman in my bed. It might be my wife, but I don't really remember what she looks like.

I discovered FR is as addictive as nicotine. I kept checking the site every 4 or 5 minutes. It was terrible.

I actually sat, looking directly at the television(not over my shoulder inbetween posts) and watched the Yankees knock off the Mariners in Game II!

It was a beautiful thing!

Hey, I finally met my kids.

My wife's doing a smashing job raising them, really.

Except the youngest doesn't really look like me.

Hmm...

I discovered that democrat underground dot slime dot site.

For some strange reason, they don't think too much of Ann Coulter.

I searched Yahoo looking for the FR alternative site that used to be there while eating half a large bag of Kitchen Kettle chips that were Fed Exed to me today. Sad Sad Sad.

Being a PNW all nighter I chose to sleep but was woke up by swimmers ear at three. So in this case shutdown had little effect.

I discovered that I'd rather FReep than eat.
And that heroin isn't all it's cracked up to be.
It also does very little to stop the DTs.

Numerical address didn't work either. When FR goes down, go to the YAHOO FreeRepublic club and either read messages or join the chat room. Here's the addy: Just click here.

I thought about how they could make baseball more interesting, by letting the batter carry the bat with him, to try and gain bases, and you could put the basemen in pads, to try to defend themselves....ok, I stole that idea from Cracked magazine..but everytime I'm forced to watch baseball, I think that BaseBrawl would be better.
