Because we haven't had a good thread party in Ages.

What? Party threads belong on the Beach? True enough. We'll probably move it there in a while.

Until then, this is The Boss we're taking about, so the party starts here. So say I all.

And I say: PAR-TAY! Please prove you remember how!

Happy Retirement, Old Boss. And I'm not bitter at all about the lack of raises and promotions.  Not at all!  :mad:

But enough of that frivolity.  Let's eat, drink, and be drinkful.  :piratetoast:  Posted Image

Party up and holding at 38%

Your personal ...endurance... is your problem, Scotty. Full speed ahead!

A TOAST!
(To the tune of "Still Alive" by Jonathan Coulton)

This is a triumph!
I'm making a note here: "HUGE SUCCESS"
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction

Fifteen years online
We do what we must because we can
For the good of all of us.

Drink to boards now long-dead!

But though many other boards have Sailed to the West
We have kept our solid core. We still further our Quest
There's analyses to write, and there's arguments to fight
With the people that we've come to love

I want a job in HRC's "shadow" cabinet. Good pay, really easy hours, lots of time off. Can't go wrong.

Sorry I'm late but someone locked me in the basement. Trying to take over the board I see........



Just kidding. It is time for me to step down as board owner and hand the reigns to someone (Orpheus) else. My time as owner has had its' up and downs, good times and trying times but I would do it all over again if it meant getting to know all of you again and keeping this wonderful place going!

I want to thank Rov first off for savings us all from the Falls of Slipstream and setting up ExIsle, without him doing that I would have had to board to own.

And I want to thank all of my current and former staff members who donated so much time to keep this experiment going.

And finally, and most important to all of you...our amazing members who make this all work.

Yes, Lady Purple and myself have been through rough times but we have always felt uplifted knowing we have an internet family who cared and helped us through things. This board is unique in how close knitted we are, like a second family.

Please keep that going and, to quote one of our founding members: “Be excellent to each other.”

Forever Purple...LoP

And yes, I will still be around when I can as well as available if Orpheus wants any input from the “Old Man”. :)

Now, where is the purple cake??????

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. THE BOSS HAS LEFT THE PODIUM.

They're YouTube videos.

Is it possible that you're viewing via phone and have videos turned off on your browser?

I wouldn't mess with you , Boss. Wouldn't want to wake up with a bifurcated noggin and a purple tire track running up my back.

Yeah, just one tire. I believe you used to call that "The Lesson".

Are you using a browser add-on like Noscript (which I recommend)? Is it set to allow Youtube?

For that matter, do the videos at youtube.com work for you?

Happy retirement ex-Boss :) love to you and Lady P :)


It's very complex. If the pizza man truly loves this babysitter, why does he keep slapping her rear? Perhaps she has done something wrong ~ Castiel
