Okay...A person leaves a thread for a few hours, and you move it! I could get a complex. It's sort of like coming home from school as a kid and finding your family moved away (really CWN, so I suckered you for a few K, geez!).
Fine, I'll get over it....and when I find you guys again, your in a place called the "Lounge", and I'm thinking 'wow, how come I never heard of this place before', my second thought is 'why are they way down at the bottom?' Then as I poke my little fishy nose in to have a look-see, I immediately notice two things:

1- Birdzilla trying to fleece me for dues
2- A rather strong impression of having just fallen down a rabbit hole (Shel playing the part of the Mad Hatter, and someone named Adrian who sounds like a contender for the part of the Red Queen)

By the way, paying dues to get into the neighborhood? I'm more worried about how to get back out! However, I think I might like it here.....so....here goes.....hello!?
Just remember- "Fish are friends, not food!"

Oh no, I'm not the Mad Hatter, that's Marc....who is also the very loosely defined "keeper" for the aforementioned Adrian. But comparing the Llounge to falling down the rabbit hole is pretty accurate. Come on, have a Zany Carter Deluxe - and don't worry about finding the door....

A. JBJ asked the mods to move this thread from General Discussions to the Llounge.

B. Apparently, GoSharks has never ventured into Llounge Llama territory before, and is understandably bewildered.

C. The previous posts were about Pooh trying to assess (scurrilous) membership dues, with discounts for not eating chicken. (Pooh thinks he's a chicken, you see...as evidenced by his avatar.)

D. In my attempt to welcome JBJ, apparently I went a bit overboard with the glowing descriptions of the charms of the Llounge and the inhabitants thereof (sometimes known as Llounge Llamas), and giving her a very condensed history of some of the more salient points of Llounge dwelling, (ZCD's, Adrian).

E. But at any rate it's too late now - you're here

Did that help?

Thank you so much, it did .

Me?? Oh wait, yeah, it was my idea (details in my brilliant multi-quoting below). But it wasn't about you. NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT YOU.

Technically, I suggested it to JBJ because I figured it was only a matter of time before we were kicked out of General Discussions anyway, and it always looks better when it's OUR idea. My suggestion also contained an unfortunate typo.

Yes, an honest to goodness typo, unlike your usual misreading of my posts. I fixed it but JBJ quoted me before it was fixed. But I'm not doing your homework for you. You can find it if you want.

JBJ did not use exact quote, if we are all waiting for the same crazy train together. I am nOT tossing anyone under it . Hahaha, love this more everyday. And I have auto correct on my phone so you at some point will see typos that like c+c music factory will make you go hmmmmm.

Scurrilous? Who you calling scurrilous? I've had my shots!

We mods need those membership dues! We don't get paid! And we have to provide our own green hats & green ink.
[OK - you can't see my green hat right now because it got cooked in this heat wave we're having.]

Chicken? Who you calling chicken? Oh ..... wait a minute

And it wasn't unfortunate it was a good guffaw on this end followed by an eye wipe. Lol

Haha I meant quoted in your post, not in the request to the mods.

Which makes me think of something...

@Pooh - were you the one who actually moved the thread? Because if not, I don't think you're supposed to collect the LOA membership dues. It's in the rulebook. (You could check for yourself, but Shel is still sitting on the nearest copy.)
