It’s the ‘babbling-by-not-babbling’ babble thread!
There once was a thread short of babble,
To fill it, the posters did scrabble,
A moment soon passed
Then out of one’s … *ahem!*
Came flying nonsensical drabbles!
Ha! That’s funny :)
for those philes who did not know, our very own buggy recently had a birthday and she turned… wait, are we old enough now where you shouldn’t tell a lady’s age? hmm.
anyway, everyone should wish the bug a belated happy 3rd 29th birthday!
Why, London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years. ;)
I wish you happy birthday, Kirabug,
However late I am to do you so;
May many more perceive you safe and snug
At home, abroad – wherever you may go.
A happy birthday, Kirabug! I wish
You happy every day, and more than days,
If calendars allow’d me to enrich
What I would wish to send itself your way.
To birthdays, Kirabug, that rushing years
Shall stand to be acknowledg’d, prais’d, rever’d
As proof that life, in spite of all our fears,
Can take whatever challenges appear’d.
So Kirabug, to birthdays! All delight
To see the year to come in your bright life!
Aww, you guys are sweet :)
Peri, what type of poem is that? I like it very much :)
And Jamie, I’m not afraid to say I’m 31 — I beat out all those poor souls who only lived to be 30.
A sonnet, madam,
Three quatrains and a couplet.
(Though sans the volta.)
i graduated :) :) :)
woohoo! congrats squeaks!
This is one of my new favorite quotes.
Steve Jobs @ WWDC regarding the upcoming Mac OS X, Leopard:
â€œWeâ€™ve got a basic version, which is going to cost $129. Weâ€™ve got a Premium version, which is gonna cost $129. Weâ€™ve got a business version, $129. Weâ€™ve got an enterprise version, $129. And weâ€™ve got the ultimate version, weâ€™re throwing everything into it, itâ€™s $129. We think most people will buy the ultimate version.â€
Not sure why the stock took a bath today, though… the Apple does Netflix announcement, perhaps?

is it just me or is the main page look and act weird? Every post without a link embedded seems to be a link for the main page and it also has the bug’s avatar on it.

Part a: forgot to close a link tag. Fixed. My apologies.
Part b: avatar is part of an upcoming feature. Stay tuned.
Oh, hey – the ‘closing old threads’ thing like on Aging Busses is done a lot of places. It’s prob. a good system.
