I've been a member for a while and I'm thinking back to some of the strangest, funniest, off beat, off track posts:

My funniest 3 (not my threads so much but the posted replies to them)

Time I had to reset my Kindle and I was practically crying because I thought my beloved Kindle lost its Virginity: because I had to stick a paper clip in the reset hole...

The time I posted what it was like waiting for Kindle to arrive: practically attacking the UPS carrier and having him think I was a weirdo

I would love to see the excitement of each person opening their brand new Kindle when it is delivered. I remember it all so well:

Looking out the window every 5 minutes:

Knowing what it was when the doorbell rang. Heart pouncing: yessss; it's here...yessss! The UPS man looking at you like you are a member of the Cleaver family as you sing-song...Thaaank youuuu!! Have a nice dayyyy!!!

Then, you want to tear the box open: but you think twice; and ever so gently open it...and Oh!! when you get to the "Kindle box" under all the cardboard; a sight to behold. With caution, you anxiously unpack each side of the "book-like" box trying to memorize exactly where each item was placed.

Next, your heart drops to your feet when you realize you have to wait 2 hours for a charge. You plug it in, and check the time every five minutes. You pace, you keep checking the charge light, you go to Kindlebooks.com, you pace some more...Then magic...the charging light goes out.

Once again, your heart starts to race and your palms start to sweat. Ever so carefully, you hold it as not to smudge the screen. Gently flip the on switch and see the wonderful floating words Amazon Kindle appear; you can't believe your eyes...and then the Welcome, you are reading your first Kindle book. Of course, you nearly die when you see your name personalized on the welcome note.

You eat dinner late, because you were busy with the Kindle; then leave the dishes in the sink...hours and hours later, you're still up in bed, fumbling with Kindle: next page, last page, home, whispernet, flip, flip; scroll, scroll, download, one-click. Soon, you start to get drowsy and figure I better put my precious Kindle down before I fall asleep and roll on it and crack the screen. Reluctantly, you put in within arms-reach next to the bed (not on the bed).

The next morning you are awake BEFORE your alarm because of the Kindle. Flip, flip; scroll, scroll...you don't bother to make the bed...too busy. Oh shoot!! You put Kindle down...jump in the shower, brush your teeth, barely make it to work on time. The whole day at work; your itchy fingers want to pull out the Kindle. After work, sandwhiches or take out for dinner...too busy with the Kindle...no dishes this time; oh no-sir-e.

Later that evening; no tv...no time, too busy; still playing with the Kindle. Next day at work there is the hint of purple under your eyes from lack of sleep for the second night in a row; and once again--you gladly repeat the process. Oh the joy!

Ah the memory... wish I could be a fly on the wall; well, maybe a butterfly...for each person's reaction.
Enjoy!!

I can't find the virginity thread...I think it was in response to someone's post.  I remember LuvMyBrats was posting, Vampy put depends up because we were laughing, Bacardi was posting.  Maybe I'm blending 2 threads...I don't know.  I looked and couldn't find it.  Maybe it was Vampy or Jim's thread to start with and when they pulled their threads...there it went.

Mom of 4: that first reset is a heartbreaker. I had to do it when my feedbooks got stuck...It nearly killed me to do it. It made me feel like my beloved Kindle lost its virginity...lol.

Angela: OMG!! I remember those threads like they were yesterday. I remember telling sailor that she was a peeker (of Christmas gifts) when she was little.

I must be confusing 2 threads where is the one where the virginity thing and the depends went on for a bit. I'll check the Luv thread and see the responses...it's probably in response to her thread that we started posting all the pics of depends and bantering back and forth...here it is below:

MagicalWingLT: Just thought of another one besides the virginity one...couldn't get the link to copy for some odd reason so here is the text:

TITLE: My mother farted; TWICE!

30 years ago: I was 16 and dating my husband; we came in about 11:30 from a date and my mother had fallen asleep on the couch waiting up for me. I plopped on the floor next to my twin brother who was watching TV; my husband, (then boyfriend) sat spine-straight in my father's chair with his hands folded in his lap. All of a sudden; from the couch....RIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiPPPP... My brother and I were pissing our pants, rolling on the floor, dying laughing, with tears streaming down our faces. My husband was still spine-straight; hands folded in his lap, stone-faced. (He told me once we got married; that he laughed his ass off all the way home and then some.)

"Cut" (pun intended) to: The next morning: We told my mother what she did. Her response (we laugh to this day) was: "That's it...that boy is not allowed in this house past 10:00!!" My brother and I died laughing and asked; "what's that got to do with the price of beans; do you only fart after a certain time?"

"CUT" to: Last week: (do show some sympathy; my mother's chemo/radiation meds: effects are wicked):

We felt bad for my mother, who never gets out of the house except for chemo and radiation... Her bloodcount came back good this week: (not supposed to go into public places (low immunities) So, (my having had a birthday): We took her to her all time favorite place, the casino. When we were done; we dropped her off at her house; (Hubby driving; Ma passenger seat; me, back seat) as she got out of the car....RIIIIiiiiPPPP...My husband (30 years later now) BURST OUT LAUGHING; my mother said ooooh excuse me and said; "ooh good thing you're married now!" (again, the price of beans]) My husband and I rode home gasping in laughter, tears dripping down our faces, pissing our pants the whole way home...

(Of course; I called my twin brother the next morning.) God if my mother ever knew I posted this:

TAG...You're IT...POST YOUR FAVORITE FUNNY within reason...
