I agree. I was more responding to the caring about historic stuff thing, then I got all sidetracked on fingers in eye sockets because that happened (again!) recently. Why can't I just hit them with a 2x4 when I JUST told them, not five minutes before "DON'T PUT YOUR FINGERS IN THEY EYE SOCKETS they are FRAGILE and EXPENSIVE!" <sigh> Idiots.

Well you could try the Three Stooges maneuver and ask how they like it "In vitro" and would they like it any better "in morturi"?(How badly did I botch the Latin?)

On to something a little more important. What's your stance on sneaking contraband snacks into the movie theater in defiance of their policy?

Jut noticed your avatar. I just checked out The Runaways DVD from the library yesterday.

Ah, so PEllen is bored and is tryign to stir up Race. Haha -- very clear, almost like plexiglass.
No, Race -- this is what you said:
"2 Screw you! I pay for those historic buildings, then I shell out more money to tour something I already bought! If I see a table with stunning grain, or some intricate carving I am gonna lay my greasy, oily hands all over it because thats how I appreciate fine woodwork. You can just have the cleaning staff (which I also pay for) clean up after me.
How can you sit on your high horse with that stick up your butt? "
So Pellen, you agree with Race then on this?
You missed it by about 180 degrees. He mixed it up with Sam and baited her frequently and sometimes effectively. The comment was my attempt at a tactful inquiry if he realized his approach sounded similar presently.

I was not addressing substance, just style.

Besides, if I wanted to stir stuff up, i wouldn't phrase it like that.

I'm not a snacker. Seriously. Plus, I can get into the movies for free along with free snackers and I really can't tell you last time I was there. Over 10 years. I like to watch movies at home or at a friend's home.

She was not speaking about that post, nor did she say she agreed with anything I did post. She just likened a post to you as being similar in context as what I would say to sam.
I have no idea what it is you are talking about though. Care to connect the dots for me?

Okay -- I'm not at work now and have more time. What exactly would you like me to explain? My position on the woman who wrote in about museum rules, what I believe is your take on the museum thing or why I disagree with that particular post of yours?

1: I'm going to whack her taco WITH the bottles of wine!

2: Oh, honey--the nation is flooded with miscreants who can barely read better than a mushroom, and you expect people to have museum decorum?
I wish people acted like humans everywhere!

Well, to start....
I would like you to contrast my response to what PEllen said and her reply about that very same post.
To my uneducated eye it would appear that she and I said about the same thing in regards to what she actually meant, but YOUR response to both of us is quite different.

I would like for you to point out the differences in our reply's and show how one explanation is so vastly different from the other, that you should reply is such different ways.

Is that too complicated for you?

What do you call it when you have Calvados with apple cider? William Tell? A shot and a , oh never mind. And can I have more, please?
Dare you to diagram that sentence.

The guy who posted Mother of All Hebrews reminded me I haven't seen Life of Brian in a long time.

How's the cat doing?

Your condescending tone is out of line. I think I'll leave it at that b/c, frankly, I don't owe you anything. I don't know if that tone works for you in real life, but it doesn't work for me here.

Right, Its my tone that is stopping you, not your inability to answer.
You don't have to like me, but dont think to tell me how to post.

If you dont want to engage me, just dont. But if you do, then have the guts to explain youself, and quit being a drive by blogger and refusing to answer because you dont like "My Tone"


Have a great day.

Oh, I will have a great day. I usually do. I don't let people bully me into doing something I don't want to do for my own reasons whether they believe it or not. Think what you want. Doesn't bother me in the least.

So you ask him what he wants explained. He tells you. Then you say you won't be bullied? Are you bipolar and off meds?
