  • I'm baaaack! Does anyone remember?

    Hey, how are you all? Not even sure how long I've been away, but it's nice to be back.

    Most of all I missed the satisfying thwomp of wood meeting ripe melon when PhilipCal Ripken swings his mighty clue bat, sending the latest Cheetoes-stained Clyde, Sparky, Junior, or Skippy rocketing back to the safety of mom's basement in Hillary's Village. (hope you're still here and going strong, sir!)

    And like any language you aren't exposed to regularly, I've lost my understanding of Sully speak! Is there a Sully-to-English dictionary linked somewhere in here to help noobs and those of us who stay away too long?

    I remember you; welcome back. PhillipCal is still telling it like it is and Sully is still telling it like he does. Sullys posts make me slow down and ponder things more in-depth.

      After many years, I'm starting to kind of understand Sully. And that scares me.

        Thanks!
        Sully and PhilipCal both have that effect on me, just for spectacularly different reasons and perspectives.

        I was there! Even volunteering as a Sully-English interpreter for noobs, but two years away, it's true what they say about languages, especially as we get older – use it or lose it. Hopefully he'll have a lot of deep thoughts in coming weeks to put me back up to speed.

          Yeah, they made a TV show about you recently (I think).

          Welcome back.

            Welcome back MG!

            I noticed you and Jack Bauer returned the same week?

                I only regret that I have but one LIKE to give for this post.

                Actually I auditioned for the part of, well, ME, but they said I'm far too gorgeous and stacked; I would only be a distraction from any plot should they happen to come up with one.

                  Thanks! They made a show about you over here many years ago. One that remembering its original run pretty well proves the above comment about auditioning for "my" show is a load of male bovine feces.

                    Welcome back, Marge!! And yeah, I think Sani's on to something. The correlation between you and Jack Bauer's return is uncanny.

                      And I swear I WILL reply to your PM. Gotta get around to answering Sully's first though.

                        After you finish Sully's, please loan me your Sully-to-English dictionary; we have some catching up to do also. Starting with how many others he's proposed to since sending my heart aflutter years ago. Had I known he was just using me to buddy up to Jack Bauer I never would have accepted.

                          The key to reading Sulli-lingo is the same way I use my very rusty French. Focus on every third word or so, then using those words, there's always enough to piece it all together. Sometimes when you're lucky, you'll understand a whole bunch of words in a row.

                          Don't read it like an English sentence though. Approach it like a puzzle with hints.

                            Don't waste your money on Rosetta Stone software, it won't help.

                              The frustrating part is, I used to be fluent! How did I lose it in such a short time? I think I'll take your advice here and start reading twice as many words per sentence as before.

                              Maybe Rosetta Stoned?

                              What if a response is required? Is it like having writer's block on a tight journalism deadline: type in a few keywords and a few curse words, set it on the floor sprinkled with premium catnip and let the cat thrash around for awhile, then run spell czech and file it?

                              We wouldn't even have to give the cat a byline in here.
