Bluejay's Greatest Hits
Hi, Straggler.

This was my first post. It was a little pedantic, and I seem to have thought I was being more insightful than I really was.

Meh... I was a brand-new entomology student, so I guess I thought I had a lot to prove. I think I might have almost grown into the big talk I was trying to use back then.

And, I responded to two different people in one post. I've improved there, too.

Hi, Jar.

I see only two "spallin" errors in your first post: "descibed" and "down right," neither one of which is really a spelling error.

I think you've overstated the problem.

Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
Hi, Straggler.

This is my 2001st post.

RAZD and Bluejay look up wearily from the exercise bikes to which they are eternally strapped.

Why'd you have to bring me into this? Especially for such a lame and creepy joke?

I suppose it doesn't surprise me: you have apparently been on a personal mission to be the direct cause of my first suspension at EvC. I mean, what other reason could you possibly have for the strange things you post?

Probably no oneís surprised I havenít been suspended before. I figure I go under the radar because Iím too boring. Until now, I donít think anyoneís* even bothered to make fun of me before.

*When I say ďanyone,Ē I of course exclude creationists and Dr Adequate.

I suddenly feel like I belong... or something.

Not surprisingly, I also suddenly wish I didnít feel like I belong.

Edited by Bluejay, : Without the smiley, I sounded like a dick.

Hi, Straggler.

But in future I shall bear in mind what a sensitive soul you are.

No worries, dude: it's just the weirdness of it that got to me.

Since you seem to have given me a rapper name for use in qs-boxes, I tried to come up with one for you, but your handle (and my creative center) seems immune to not-lame ones, such as:

Strag-La
Stragosaurus
Straguar
Stragwag
etc.

So, "Strag" is all you get, even though it makes you sound like a beefy biker with a mohawk a lame cyberpunk movie.

I asked for it and got it--two days after my birthday, on 9/4/2005.

That sounds like a subtle hint for somebody to mention you on the Birthday Thread.

Happy Birthday!

Forum Old School
Hi, Omnivorous.

I first began reading in January 2008, and first began posting in February 2008. So, I was at the beginning of the first generation at EvC without the "old school."

But I briefly overlapped with the Great Extinction, so, I had participated on threads with the likes of Jar, Nator, Trixie, Quetzal, Ringo, you, etc., before the forum entered its Cenozoic Era.

In your case, it was relatively good behavior.

Quetzal was inimitable; Trixie a delight: both of them sweethearts with steel-trap minds.

Ah, the goold ol'days that I barely took part in.
