PD.COM...2009 in Review.
« on: December 12, 2009, 06:09:40 pm »
Well, I know my year got off to a bang. I came down from the high of winning master level costuming awards to being asked for a divorce from Herbert, who no longer has the balls to show up on this forum. Everything sort of went out of control from there. I introduced General Stuart to to the board and the power of WOMP, and he's been nigh unstoppable since...well since he went to work in Vermont.

It also appears that our alphabetical members of the board, RWHN and LMNO, have decided to breed.

Someone take it from here.

2009 was the year of the February Fuckover, in which several members of PD.com (and/or people close to them) got totally fucked over. I personally avoided the worst of it, and I'll let those individuals affected by it tell their own stories. Or maybe someone can find a link to the February Shit List thread we made.

2009 was also the year of the Second Generation Internet Safaris. I participated in several of these, even acting as a sort of impromptu leader on some of them. These board-hopping adventures enjoyed great success on at least one forum, that being, appropriately enough, a forum devoted to discussing IRL African Safaris. We were tolerated on a few others, and unceremoniously booted off of a few more. I'm told that this second generation of Internet Safaris was rather different from the first incarnation, although I was not around for the first Safaris so maybe someone else can illuminate the differences between them.

And some other stuff happened.

I was barely here for most of the year and the board flourished.

Now I'm back, and you can see the results for yourselves.

The divorce announcement was only one instance of the overall February Fuckover of 2009.  :horrormirth:

I started dating a corpse-carver, I met a bunch of new freaks, and we did the psycho letters.

Oh, yeah, I also had 2 heart attacks, lost 30 pounds, and got all fucked up on pills.

Is that why you won't let it see you, why you can't bear the gaze? Because you've done terrible things.
Then there are the transgressions you never even knew you committed, those are the worst because those you can never forget, all you can do is suspect.

I took part in a couple safaris, left from March until about August, came back and contributed to some writing threads, and undertook NaNoWriMo (which I heard about on this board).

In life, 2009 has been a pretty good year for me.  2008 was awful, so it didn't take much.

I skipped taking part in the February fuck over and instead had the November fuck over.

Roger kicked off his letters series with Hey, LMNO! and now he and several members are working on a graphic novel adaptation. This was the start of the AT/OKM reversal. More awesomeness to come.

Aside from that and Intermittens I can't really recall the events here over the last year in great detail. Is that bad, considering how much time I spend around here?

I drank a lot of beer.

smoked a lot of cigarettes.

stuck a lot of motherfuckers with blunt metal objects.

found out why they call them TV dinners.

Ate an entire 15 pound chicken by myself.

wrote threatening letters to people I look like but hate.

Oh yeah, and went back to work.

I finally figured out what I wanted to do with my life, and did it.  Now am waiting for pass/fail.



Oh, and Daruko.

I started studying philosophy in a foreign language and then had no time to do anything on here but read. Though I think I managed to post once at least every 2 months.

Ok back to studying...
