An impression of Sid Meier's thread. Who'd you be if for a priod of say one day, or one week, you could be a different Hatracker?

I think I'd be TomDavidson or Annie for one week, I'd write a hell of a lot of poetry under the name Jonathan Howard, and have a book of good poetry published... [Razz]

I won't name any names, but it would involve mirrors and a lot of nudity.

well, it seems like it is. We have a "I like ..." and "I'd date ..." both on the first page and now it's "I want to be ...". You could at least wait until the other ones make it to page 3 [Razz]

If I'm Maui Babe, can I spend the week on vacation checking out Hawaii? [Smile]

Oh wait. I could take a vacation to Hawaii and check it out and still be myself.

So, I guess if I had to choose a Hatracker to be for the week, I'd choose ME. Because if I'm not me, I'm not sure who would be, and I've got a lot of people counting on me.

(Added: This isn't meant as a personalized attack!)

Okay, here's my beef with this thread:

I don't necessarily disagree with the seemingly innocent (if naive) motives behind the thread. But, I do disagree with the spin a few have put on it.

To imply that you would become an attractive Hatracker and molest yourself is extremely perverse. If you cannot see that, I feel very sorry for you. There is absolutely no way I will stand on the sidelines and watch while people pervert the innocent and (in a lot of cases) young women on this board that may not fully understand what you're saying. They may be too shocked or offended to stick up for themselves, so I (and I'm sure a lot of others) will gladly step in the muck and fight the battle for them.

Is this a collective "your" or a specific "your?" If that comment is directed at me, allow me to reiterate:

I meant that to specifically steer my blame away from you, since I don't believe you foresaw this happening.

Every answer I think of to this question is going to offend or hurt someone.

So I'll just keep them to myself.

I apologize if anything I posted offended anyone. I thought it was pretty tame compared to some of the other jokes that people post here all the time. I'm not sure why you think I'm directing it towards "young women," but if any one fitting that description thought I was directing my joke at them, I'm sorry.

(for the record I have not deleted anything in this thread)

p.s. aspectre is a guy right? Just checking. [Smile]

Unless you use the oe ligature incorrectly, you mean. Or should we start pronouncing it "hay-loyd sil-uh-wet"?

But I just love the rain! That clinches it! You come on up here to New Jersey, and relieve me for the day, and I'll go on over to Hawaii and be you. Don't worry, I'll leave detailed instructions on how to be me, so you won't run into trouble.

I should ask, how are you with heavy lifting?

Hmmm...

I just wish Hatrack were a real place where we could go and have picnics and our kids could play together, and we could talk and play games.

Also, the Wenches could paint eachother's nails and do each other's hair. We could have baby showers and birthday parties that didn't involved 12 hour drives or airlines.

*sigh*
