  1. I wonder if you’re familiar with the expression ‘wooden spoon’, Ace.

    Or in our cases, just ‘spoons’.

  2. There’s a “form guide?” That probably means I’ve been doing this posting thing all wrong for years.

    Aside #1: page jump!

    Aside #2: we’re very close to post #8000.

  3. Gee, is there again an interloper waiting in the wings, waiting to jump in and claim post 8000, without having done the endless slogging that we have?

  4. What does it mean, to have an obscure web site post accumulate 8000 comments? To clarify, we ask Clarus the Dogcow. Clarus replies

  5. I suspect so . . . but ’twas not I. I hope it was Nxxx or Ace. Or one of our erstwhile chums. Regardless, Happy 8000th to one and all. After a year of various scares, mMay we all be here (both cyberspatially and physically) for the 9000th.

  6. Can the next thousand comments sparkle as brightly as the last thousand? Might it help if we were paid in advance?

    Probably not, as it is said that easy money doesn’t build character and excellence as suffering for the sake of “the craft” does. Time will tell…

  7. I’ve been searching for this ‘easy money’ of which people speak for some time now. Over hill, down dale. Day after day. No easy task, I assure you.

    1. If you are searching for it, you’re working too hard. Easy money is supposed to come to you, but then it is not for everybody. Me, for example.

  8. I’m more likely to find Eddie Money than easy money. Though, and I’m not making this up, there is an Easy Street in Silicon Valley (Mountain View).

  9. I wonder if you need to use Easy Money to buy things on Easy Street?

    Surely that would make things Difficult for the vendors?

  10. Can I just interrupt your own meta-interruption, Ace, by interpreting said interruption as an eruption of corrupt deduction.

    You’re clearly getting at [insert name of random victim].

    I think I need more sleep . . .

  11. Thank you, BroMu. It is all beginning to make cents now. Originally I was advised to invest in myself, but that turned out to be a dead end.

  12. I thought it was beginning to make scents. That would have explained one or two things. But that just might have been the “dead” in the dead end that Ace found.
