Let's see how long this lasts. This is a thread for posting when you will be gone for a while. There are those people who are here every day and when they suddenly aren't, it's a bit disconcerting.

For instance, uilleann. He's such a pest. But he's gone and I'm a bit concerned. He didn't mention anything to me (not that he would) but if anyone knows anything, please post it here.

And if you go on vacation or whatever and won't be around, it would be nice if you would post about it here so that people don't worry.

Thanks. [Smile]

uilleann is alive and well, but I'm sure he got tired of BS and will probably stay away for a good bit. About the only people who comment on taking leaves of absence are emo kids who have been grounded, or lab rats who inform us that they may be putting one of their nine lives on the line... [Wink]

I'll be taking a week or two here and there, but I doubt anyone would notice... though the sarcasm level might drop briefly [Big Grin]

If you really think our posts are similar, you should reduce your consumption of drugs and alcohol.

Same here, but you should probably replace "sarcasm" with "arrogance". [Big Grin] (Well, I'm officially an über elitist asshole, after all! [crazy] )

Plus there are some times when I have nothing to say, or feel no need to say it - which would have been the case here, if not of your comment, WS!

Edit: I used my 1500th post on a silly subject! Whoohoo! [Big Grin] (Not that I really care, mind you. I just checked it following the comments on 3 digits UID and post counts, and it happened to be a nice number. I'll take greater care of my 2048th one, I promise! [Wink] )

One could always do a 'skylar' and melodramatically thread-jack to announce your permanent departure... before skulking back in again a few weeks later, because you just couldn't stay away... [Razz]

I read that as "browse the pants" [ohwell]

I lurk most threads, and occasionally go through bouts of posting, such as now. Then I'll probably disappear from posting for half a year or so again.

Thank you for reporting in and for thinking of this as a caring thread, even though I called uilleann a pest. [Smile] As Steen would say, that's part of his charm. [thumbsup]

I'll be insensate for the next 48 hours: womped out on hroopy pills. Just in case anyone decided to miss me. Typing on painkillers is disorienting. Sure, you can ask why I'm taking them, but you'll have to wait for a reply...

Nappy time for Spastic (not particularly scholastic right now...). Talk to 'yall in a couple of days. Have fun. [crazy]

But some of the best posts and reply's come from when someone is inebriated.
