Default Play Nicely ...

One thing to remember is that our CyberWorld is two-dimensional. Another thing to remember, as we just saw with the road-stripe opossum photo, is that not everybody finds the same thing funny.

Just as Mgram ought not have to apologize for her opinion on the taste of food (and I refuse to apologize for my opinions on cruise ship veal, even that of Monsieur Roux), neither should anyone have to be taken to task for finding the photo either humorus OR distasteful.

Had the dead thing been a cat or a dog, I probably would have found it distasteful because I am pet lover. I am not especially fond of opossums but neither do I dislike them. Dead possums, at least here in the Quaint State, are a roadway fact of life. I wouldn't have seen the point of a photo of a dead possum without the stripes. As was, I saw it as my tax dollars hard at work.

I think of Chit-Chat as the coffee break room in an office. Back in the pumps and pantyhose days, I saw plenty of cartoons on the wall of the coffee room. Some were hilarious, others weren't, some were disgusting. My taste. Personally, I think it's terrific that there's a place JUST for idle chatter and off-topic, sometimes quite serious, communication among the community here on CruiseMates.

On some other boards, the idle chatter gets mixed in with other issues and, often, a serious cruising question can get lost in a flurry of off-topic stuff. That's not good. My opinion.

Lecture over. It's recess time.

Nah, Ms. Carole.

Let's just sit around and DRINK those margaritas !!! (DiveTex will be serving.)

Then we can plan evil deeds about whom we want to take out with oven cleaner and golf clubs at ten paces. (Better to keep the distance short after the margaritas.)

love,

pamda

Pamda... has hit the nail on the head! Since Chit Chat was sort of my idea (yes, I am a genius.. lol ) I can tell u it's intent was always to be a "Coffee Club". A place for friends to meet, and talk cruising or anything else.
As I stated in another thread... I would be the first one protecting the right to individual senses of humor.... or more certainly the first one placed on the rack for having an out of the ordinary sense of humor.

We're fortunate here to have other boards for the more detailed and specific cruise talk. And while they should all be fun.. Chit Chat is a place for bonding, friendship.. and FUN.

Regards,
Kuki

Ok, Michael, leave off the DIET part of that drink and I will try it with lime.
Look at that word for a minute -
It is DIE with a T at the end.
eeeeeeeewwwwwweeeeeeee.
Tried diet drinks once, never did learn to like them. To each his own.
Oh, I like pepsi as a matter of choice.
You like fuzzy navels? (the drink!)

i ADORE fuzzy navels -- when I'm bored, i get to pick out all the lint -- oh, you meant the drink; ADORE that too. As a matter of fact, i'm hoping to go home soon, put Tweety on da feet, have a Fuzzy Navel, & remember the great posts I read here tonite (no puter at home). But then again, some really confused me! Not that i'm easily confused mind you, but that may be another story altogether. I'm just hoping Amazon.com stays in business long enough for me to buy the new "Captain Underpants" book; his new adversary is Wedgie Woman. I can just picture it now: pamda with her margaritas, straws for Mgram so she can sneak slurps from pamda's margaritas & my fuzzy navels ...

ok -- back to my corner.

thanks for the time out, guys -- back to work!
