    Default I'm never mentioned on Off Topic Day


    My dogs love me, at least.

    Just kidding! I enjoy reading all the posts.

    Besides-it is 40 degrees here and sunny, and I have a 4 day weekend.
    That's Lee-Jackson Day today for all ya'll Yanquies.

    40 degrees really? I'd be happy with 32.

    Sniff.

    I'd be happy with approaching 30. Both temporally and thermally.

    40? Geez it's 35 and I'm 350 miles in a southern direction. I really hate any winter, but this one is moving rapidly to the top of my hate list

    Sometimes it is a GOOD thing not to be mentioned!

    OH NOW I WANT CHIPS AND ONION DIP.

    That stuff is so bad for you. But so, so good.

    And no one ever mentions me, either.

    And thus the Incredible Invisibles were created Anyone remember them? They were the poor posters, like yours truly, who are never mentioned or acknowledged on off topic days. So Moonriver(?) and I came up with the Incredible Invisibles clique. Do we need to resurrect it?

    (consider yourself mentioned)

    & now for the Rationalization:
    *Onion Dip is a vegetable
    *sour cream in the dip is calcium
    *Potato chips also vegetables with the addition of healthful vegetable oil for a shiny coat
    *Diet coke....can't help you there but I am also an addict

    Remember in high school algebra when you were assured you would use it later in life?
    OK
    Diet Coke = minus (-)
    Chips and dip (or fill in the blank) = positive (+)

    Diet cokes x chips/dip/ad infinitum= MINUS!!! So no calories count!!
    Or, Diet cokes = zero.
    Junk food = let's say, 600 calories.
    600 x 0 is still zero.


    Oh please start the Incredible Invisibles! I feel sooo empowered and not marginalized now!
    Marginalized-I hate that word, as I do disenfranchised and disrespected.

    I'm with Foxtrot, sometimes it is good not to be mentioned

    I'm invisible, love Diet Coke and chips.

    But, I also like winter, does that make me unacceptable?

    3dogfarm, it is better not to stick your neck out and be noticed, because you can't please everyone and some will use you for a target.
    So there, that ought to make you feel better.

    After being in the deep freeze for a week, breaking ice every day, we shoot up to 70F yesterday, yes, that is not a typo, 70F and a glorious sunny day.
    We got a lot done in our shirt sleeves.
    What is best, we are supposed to have a couple more days like this, before winter returns.
    Just remember, every day now we are one day closer to spring.

    Another never mentioned here. I'm funny, dammit! Like, totally witty and clever. On another BB I'm a star. I'm famous in Japan. But here, apparently, I'm a nobody. And to make matters worse, I'm just an alter for another nobody. Boo.
    Please don't sabotash my conchess.
