I would like to complain about flighty fairies and their fear of serious thoughts. Not everyone gets to flit around the forest facilitating foxes in their fraternizing. I mean ...seriously...most of the gamers here are really serious and spend a lot of thought and time coming up with answers for your entertainment. You are not so naive to think we do this to entertain ourselves or that it is fun...This is serious business.... mad.gif



I want to vigorously complaint about the above poster's careless and reckless
use of the phrase, "spend a lot of time!" Spend a lot of time where? unsure.gif Not
here in the games! What have you done with all the female players Mr. "Self-
entertainment?" You haven't gone and formed your own girl's vollyball team
with them have you? It's kinda strrange that DenverC, Lucisaves, Appycowgirl,
and Deepzenpill all disappeared at the same time! Only one besides me left
is Harums and she's too "bumpy" now to be jumping around some court for
your visual (and visceral!) entertainment! mad.gif Let them go immediately idee
and I won't call their husbands (or worse....their Daddy's!).

I would like to complain very loudly this morning....

First of all I was patiently waiting for Wings to show up tonight but mmi16 was back from his disappointing auto racing weekend. We were playing amiably and not acting like 'dumb guys'. Just because the Hawaiian Tropic Girls volleyball team needed a coach doesn't mean I stole all the State College, PA Accuweather #1 ranked Women's virtual volleyball team from these forums. More than likely the low traffic in games puts people off sometimes, and they venture to other virtual lands. (Plus I hate to tell you, but the Forums are loaded with weather geeks! ohmy.gif ) This is a surefire prescription to chase away all but the most hardy ( or foolhardy) women.

Maybe they are all the same person...huh! Man I was feeling good until the rug was pulled out from under me...

Banned for baiting me into posting another Happy for you.... dry.gif . While I like
to tease, ban, complain about, poke, and treat him outrageously bad...
I don't like to see him feeling bad or sad so here I go again...off on another
good will mission! (I need to do something about this soft streak I've got...
it needs to get exorcised!)

This is not gonna be easy to complain about after my excursion to 'Happiness' generated an excess of joy for idee...especially the car pictures about crashing Ferrari's and seatbelts and all..... happy.gif

I would like to complain that idee does get maltreated at times but like a puppy (Micah) he comes back for more. Idee does often misbehave and deserves much of his scorn from unknowing fellow posters.

Even more difficult is that Wings has a soft streak that causes idee much grief....for he ends up dazed and confused from all the happiness that he enjoys when Wings is so generous in her gifts...

Thank goodness idee has a few days off to build up some momentum to be cranky, stubborn, and aloof. wink.gif

Yes, the new NC vaccine (Nasty Coyote)! But I've heard once you've had a
run-in with one you have to take them the rest of your life! sad.gif

Yes there is a new vacine, sold under the Acme brand. Wings gets no profit from this. The only side efffect known is the reaction it has to fairies. Interesting, very interesting.

What reaction? unsure.gif Tell me...tell me! Reaction for me or reaction for one who
who takes the vaccine and then comes near me. Stop being secretive

handled the box it comes in? Not that I've had anything to do with the

Nobody's playin' so I ain't stayin.' dry.gif People just drive by and look and that
wall of Wings just sits there. Am I supposed to play quietly by myself? That
has been shown not to work as I invariably start an argument with myself
which I also (invariably) lose. No doubt this will be a busy hub of activity
tonight while I struggle Accu-lessly at work sad.gif . Sometimes, it just don't
pay to get up.

I would like to complain that people just cannot remember that fairies have
no integrity and so there is noth.....oh, you meant our dwellings? unsure.gif
Heck, everybody knows the structure itself is made up of twigs, leaves,
chipmunk dung (dried for a year or so), and the hair of coyotes! Stronger
than brick, I can tell you! We just like HMDS sheets as wallpaper, along
with caution tape when it's available (when there's been a murder in the
forest! ohmy.gif ).

I'm complaining because I've got to stop and begin the 'getting ready for work'
rituals (something about the word rituals seems to bring out the coyotes.. unsure.gif ).

And now I'd like to complain about myself complaning about having to get ready
for work since without the job I couldn't pay the light bill or buy dog food dry.gif .

And besides...it's my last for 4 whole days! biggrin.gif Hey, I talked myself into a
'cheer-up' but I need to quit stalling and get busy!

I would like to complain about these rituals that are being performed, the coyotes are already howling with delight at the thought of Wings and her clandestine activities she is planning. It sounds like her workplace has a lot more going on than meets the eye. And complaining about going to work is pretty tame, but it's good you have 4 days off! Idee would like to complain that he actually needs to work more as he is having a hard time paying his bills...

I would like to complain about the above poster's lack of consideration for the
Games 'diet' I've been forced to be on this past week. The front page is
still filled with 'Wings' and I have difficulty swallowing those but does he
care? Apparently not sad.gif . He's been rubbing elbows with those lah-de-dah
weather folks all night with no thought to my arrival this morning expecting
a page full of 'idee's' to play. That's ok...he won't have me to ignore
tomorrow, I'll be at Mom's, getting ignored by her.

I would like to complain about the aforementioned morning batch of sour grapes....some of like sour grapes and can eat them to our heart's content. Idee has a sensitive stomach and was lulled to sleep by the complete lack of any movement whatsoever on the Forums this morning. Your unexpected early arrival threw a monkey-wrench in idee's plans and (he also didn't want to seem to eager to please or just lurking about and impolitely jump up and down at Wings landing in this place)..

No complaints about you dropping in while visiting Mom...I consider this a rare treat....

I would like to complain about my Mother (cause she's not here to see this!)
for not having internet access! She says she doesn't 'need' it, doesn't
want, and doesn't want to pay for it. If it ever comes free, she might
consider it (her hint for me to pay for it). Think I want my Mom seeing
every thing I post? This little fairy is too smart for that!

I would like to complain about Mom's who scold you about something they think you said.....when you ask who told them it was always like..."a little bird told me"...or some kind of fairy tale (Whoops! huh.gif ) about the information source....Now they just get Tweeted by the nosy neighbors who watch their kids house.. dry.gif

Since there is no one answering....Idee is impatient and can't wait....he has a complaint.....

Idee's rant today is about the Traffic on the Forums....or more particularly the lack thereof... dry.gif

Idee in his ruminations (Idee does not know where that is) has decided that are several reasons for the slowdown in Traffic...

#1. Idee: This is probably the most important factor in idee's addled logic....Idee is not funny...and his posts are often too long winded and no one bothers to read them anyway(except for a select few) mellow.gif
#2. Idee also is a night shifter which is scary in itself, but then he comes through the forums scattering his moniker everywhere like some bloated night crawler ....this puts the early risers off because they have to answer idee's confusing, maudlin posts bemoaning his nighttime of haunting unoccupied Forums....

#3. Worst of all the Forums are full of places that provide real information about weather, nature, photography, and the entertaining areas of Everything Else, Sports, and Games.....obviously this is a no-brainer.....

The Traffic is off because the Forums are like going to school....we even correct some poster's spelling errors and write out complete words and sentences. Who in the World wants to waste that kind of time....learning...reading....understanding...and maybe even politely interacting (sometimes wink.gif ) with our fellow posters....
Oh no...people gotta answer with Tweety birds, and Face-Case hyperspeed answers in various acronymic (I made that word up) answers and little word bites of obnoxious humor, belittlement, and peer pressure....Idee now understands that if he had a short attention span, spoke with pieces of words, liked to berate others in 'real-time', and generally behave in an undignified manner then he would go to all these social media sites also.....

But lazy, daydreaming Idee just can't drag himself out of his technological funk to get with it.....

I cannot wait to dig my teeth and nails into the above post....just the
thought of it has me salivating and breathing a little heavier however,
it will take time to give the careful and thoughtful response that it
deserves and so must wait....I'm having far too much fun with idee
this morning and he'll be AWOL after this morning... sad.gif . I shall miss
him (but will comfort myself with answering the above which is vintage
idee...the kind i like the best wink.gif .

I wish to submit a point by point rebuttal to the above post, as it deserves
our careful attention. Let me begin by saying that the poster does indeed
have some valid points to make. It is true that traffic has slowed on the
Forums, sometimes to a crawl and occasionally, even a standstill. And let
me input my own little complaint right here. Absences are most prominent
among the distaff (yes, I do like using that word and yes, I am showing
off) members of our little group, particularly here in the games. I am really
missing the girls who are much more tolerant of my little....shall we say...
idiosyncrasies, than are the guys. My granny use to say I was adorably
eccentric. The guys just call me crazy. But I digress!
Valid complaints not withstanding, I would like to draw the reader's
attention to the ingenious way the writer has cleverly placed himself in
the center of his own controversy! Seemingly blaming himself for each
and every situation that he brings up. I would like to submit the following:

Exhibit A:
QUOTE
This is probably the most important factor in idee's addled logic....Idee is
not funny....and his posts are often too long winded and no one bothers
to read them anyway (except for a select few).


ANSWER: Of course idee is funny. He is hilariously so at times and has me
laughing and giggling in a most unlady-like fashion. His droll, morose, self-
deprecating style of humor has a way of elevating one's mood while at the
same time reducing one's own troubles to the level of the mundane. And
his posts are interesting and informative and not long-winded at all (as
this one is going to be).

Exhibit B:
QUOTE
Idee also is a night shifter which is scary in itself, but then he
comes through the forums scattering his moniker everywhere like some
bloated night crawler....this puts the early risers off because they have
to answer idee's confusing mauldlin posts bemoaning his nighttime of
haunting unoccupied forums....


ANSWER: We actually have many night shifters, most of them guests.
But we continue to see new members pop in here and mosts of those
were guests at one time. People are happy to see that someone has
gone before them and posted or expressed an opinion since they were
there last. There is a feeling of continuity to the threads that feels
welcoming and invites one in to join the discussion. And here again,
idee always has something interesting to say, even if it's about himself
or complaining about someone else. Boring is never a word I associate
with idee.

*an aside to the bench...uh, idee.* I've been using my work computer
to write this and it keeps wanting to add one of those accent thingies
over the first 'e' in your name. Why does it do that, does it think you're
French? How would you pronounce that anyway....i DEE? On second
thought, that sounds high-brow, just like our own idee wink.gif .

Exhibit C:
Point # 3 of the above poster's. Here, idee draws his (rather erroneous
in my opinion) conclusions. He actually accuses our beloved EE threads
....and the weather threads....of being too informative! Now I will admit
that I had to read over Item # 3 several times before I understood
what the heck he was talking about in referencing 'Tweety Birds' and
Face-Case hyperspeed (I still don't know what that is) and to top it
off he goes completely into orbit when he begins making up his own
vocabulary. Although I must admit I did like the word 'acronymic' and
may try it out myself in the future, I still must enter it into the court
records as Exhibit D.

Idee is saying, I believe, in his rather poetic if a little rambling manner,
that people are abandoning Accu threads because they contain too
much info for the average mind to process (even in EE....ROFL!!)
in favor of the less intellectually-challenging but more instantly
gratifying social networking sites of FB and 'Tweety-bird." To that
I say....RUBBISH! BALDERDASH!
It is the opinion of this court (of public opinion) that the exact
opposite is true! People drift in here to get away from the (sometimes)
mindless drivel and mundane (and insane!), not to mention nasty
and expoitative junk posted every second on those places. Here,
things are more civil, easy going, slower paced (except during
inclement weather!), and respective of our fellow posters. I like
it here lots and hope to stay around awhile.

So in closing, ladies and gentlemen of the court of public opinion,
let me reiterate that it is idee's constant need for attention in
addition to his abiding need to fault himself for everything from the
color of the sky today to civil unrest in Uganda that compelled him
to post the above statements.

We ask for the court's leniency in this matter and hope that he will
be excused with just a slap on the wrist (and a little cyber-hug from
fairyland rolleyes.gif ) to make him feel better. Attached File  Hugs_2.jpg ( 2.1K ) Number of downloads: 0


I rest my case.
