Maybe none, this is chat site. Playing solitaire is not the same as playing poker; the fewer the less merry.

And ... Nota started a thread here? Why? I thought he was happier at the other site and didn't have any use for this one anymore.

we have no idea what people are randomly thinking

Fridays are just Fridays...we are missing out on the sexxy part

we have no idea what people are having for lunch. Just for the record I had a power bar and green tea. For dinner I will be thinking of Norman while I dive in to a giant plate of steamed brussels sprouts. :)

Well, I am randomly thinking that I wish my eyes would hurry up and heal already, that I'll be glad when this week is over and that I want to go back 2 weeks and get one more hug from my boyfriend Kenny. :D

Haven't had lunch yet - apparently I have very high cholesterol and I need to get it down or my dr. is putting me on medication. :rolleyes: Which makes choosing lunch much less fun. On the plus side - I've lost 5 pounds!

Can we have sexy Wednesday?

Well, Wednesdays are hump days!!!!!

I hope your eyes heal soon too! What do they feel like? Do they hurt?

I had to much fun at Easter...and gained 5lbs :o ...Oops. We made Peep houses, peep smores, decorated cupcakes, made a cake, and had a giant cookout. On the bright side when I gain my boobs look great!...but clothes get tight and I hate even a little tight.

Can you take me with you 2 weeks back so I can get a hug too?? :)

This is true! :)

They feel like I have old, dry contacts in that I'm just dying to take out! It's more annoying than anything else. And I have to sleep with stupid goggles on so I don't accidentally rub them in my sleep. :rolleyes:

I hate tight too. I saw your peep smores - I have GOT to try that!

I can take you and I'm sure he'll hug you too! And I'll hug you so you'll get at least two hugs out of the deal.

Ish ish ish ish...:mad:

I think that's why they don't do anything to those that get around paying for the subscription by simply clearing their cookies.
If they got rid of those people too this thread would remain on the first page until next January.

I have to believe that the Sun has lost A LOT more in ad revenue due to lost traffic then they've made by charging 99 cents a month for a subscription.
2009 is the International Year of Astronomy
Have you looked through a telescope this year ?

Saturday October 24, 2009 is Astronomy Day.
Consider visiting a local astronomy club/astronomical society, planetarium, or observatory to take a look at the sky through a telescope.

Is anyone actually paying for a subscription?
