Annie(horrified): I'm not your good woman!
Dan_raven: Don't say that, Annie. I don't care what your past has been. To me, you'll always be my good woman. Because I love you. There. I didn't mean to tell you, but you...you dragged it out of me. I love you.
Annie: It's rather difficult to believe that when I find you Hatracking with another woman.
Dan_raven: That woman? Do you know why I sat with her?
Annie: No.
Dan_raven: Because she reminded me of you.
Annie: Really?
Dan_raven: Of course, that's why I'm sitting here with you. Because you remind me of you. Your eyes, your throat, your lips! Everything about you reminds me of you. Except you. How do you account for that? [aside](If) she figures that one out, she's good.[/aside]
Annie: Mr. Raven. I think we'd better keep everything on a business basis.
Dan_raven (appearing insulted): How do you like that? Every time I get romantic with you, you want to talk business. I don't know, there's something about me that brings out the business in every woman.

Don't you see, you'll be a patron of Hatrack. You'll get into Hatrack society. Then, you can marry me and they'll kick you out of Hatrack society, and all you've lost is $200,000

Later, Dan Raven sneaks into Annies house. There she is surprised to see him. Before she can scream for help, Dan starts talking.

Dan_raven: Ah, twin beds, you little rascal you.
Annie: One of those is a day bed.
Dan_raven: A likely story. Have you read any good books lately? (He lies back on her bed with a book)
Annie: Mr. Raven, will you please get off the bed? What would people say?
Dan_raven: They'll probably say you're a very lucky woman. Now will you please shut up so I can continue my reading?
Annie: No, I will NOT shut up! And will you kindly get up at once?
Dan_raven: All right. I'll go. I'll make you another proposition. Let's go in my room and talk the situation over.
Annie: What situation?
Dan_raven: Well...uh...what situations have you got?
Annie: I most certainly will not go to your room.
Dan_raven: OK, then I'll stay here.
Annie (succumbing finally): ...All right, I'll come, but get out.
Dan_raven: Shall we say, uh, ten minutes?
Annie: Yes, ten minutes, anything. But go!
Dan_raven: Because if you're not there in ten minutes, I'll be back here in eleven...with squeaky shoes on.

ps. 10 Hatrack points to the second person to guess where the above is from.

Richard, Annie is Morgan Majors for heaven's sake. How can you be a/s/ling her as though you don't even know her? [Smile]

P.S. She plays guitar now. [Smile] (Amen, brother!)

P.P.S. On second thought, was that an in joke I don't get?

Oh, I'm aware she's my age and female. But the picture's not complete, so to speak; we need the Majors' photo before we can decide whether it's worth the road trip to Montana (and requisite stop in Vegas).

And yes, it's Majors' no matter what her family says.

I was never on the pre-UBB incarnation of Hatrack, though.

Edit: Now Richard Berg I do remember, though over the last couple of years I've seen him much more at Ars Technica than here.

As I recall, the breadth of his knowledge and interests was astonishing. I can't believe Ars Technica really does it for him, you know? I mean they're so limited there! We are the forum with that vast scope to talk about absolutely anything at all! How could he think of leaving us for them? <sobs quietly into her hankerchief>

I am amused in oh-so-many ways.

So many tempting offers, this being among the most tempting:
quote:
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, marry me?
But I do suppose T Smith is right about our past, and TAK nailed my weakness for physicists. Dan's scenario was at least well-rehearsed.

Glad that out of all these fine threads, Richard, this one would tempt you to reply. [Smile] I have pictures on the way as soon as foobonic is back in action.

However, I shall have to refrain judgement until I've fully considered all my possibilities, and this involes waiting a week while they hook up our DSL at my new house.

Carry on, carry on. Have some refreshments while you're waiting.

They aren't limited there at all. [Smile] I fluctuate between posting here, at Ars, and at a few other fora I frequent. Ars is the most broad, in terms of scope, of the lot. [Smile]

Brettly, I don't remember you on the Big Mouth Lion at all. Were you around back then? What name did you post under?

Morgan Majors started about a third of the threads on the BML forum. You would have had a hard time missing her.

Twinky: it IS? Maybe we should be posting there instead, then! [Smile] Is it like hatrack at all? I wandered over there a few times but what I saw seemed to be all technical stuff and only technical stuff. Not even technical stuff in general but just computers. Maybe I didn't wait long enough or look in enough detail, though. Will you describe to me your impression of what it's like over there? Are they newbie-friendly?

I'd highly recommend Ars...except for the fact that the forums of general interest are now subscriber-only. The tech fora -- I was fascinated with them for awhile until I learned everything they had to teach; I never thought it would happen, but I'm largely a Lykaion whore these days. The Lounge is a bit more madcap than we're used to (or not, y'all seem to have stepped up the rambunctiousness in my absence), but I think you'd find the tenor and intelligence of SoapBox debates quite agreeable.

quote:
I can't believe Ars Technica really does it for him
FWIW, I'm also a moderator at Doom9. That's it! Now that I have two crowns on my head, I can offer Annie one of them in matrimony, thus enthroning the Hatrack Regency.

Edit: I remember Brettly10. I'm having trouble finding my BigMouth archive in the midst of my digital packrat-itis, so I can't say anything witty about him just yet.

RB summed up Ars pretty well.

I spend most of my time in the gaming forum, the Macintosh forum, and the Velvet Room (though because I have no subscription as yet I must lurk).

I used to go to the Soap Box before it went subscriber-only; the discussions there are sort of like Ornery meets Hatrack.

Edit: I wonder how many decades it will be before we see a landmark post from Mr. Berg?

Jenny's got a major case of fluff-itis. Though I'm glad to see Hobbes never posted in this thread. At least that I saw. The number of women (now including myself) who have is alarming.

Alas, snatched away by a rogue tiger -- and I just made my Vegas trip, too. At least I happened upon pics in the interim, if I recall vaguely. (Meanwhile, funny that even though I attended the first picnic, AKA is probably the only current poster to know what I look like.)

Oh, and quit the random digression to Ars, I'm through with them even if they don't know it.

Isn't it A Night at the Opera? (Because the scene on the boat then heads into the scene in the tiny little cabin, which is definately A Night at the Opera.)

That's my favourite Marx Brothers film. [Smile]

Richard, I probably don't know what you look like anymore. People change a lot between 18 and ... however old you are now. [Smile] 22? 23?

Slash is still around, though he posts pretty infrequently these days. Of that group I think everyone else has gone, though, you're right.

That was a great picnic! I'll never forget how much fun we had burning things! <laughs>
