    Talking No Topic, just Chat

    Here's a handy little thread to chat about whatever. Don't worry about being on topic..I never do
    I wanted you to know I deleted the guest room. It turns out guys aren't allowed to post in here anyway..some do sneak in but not many.
    So tell me something about yourselves, I am mostly just a goof. I like it but my family finds it wearing..LOL
    I have had about every non technical job there is, I worked retail, food service, tele-wagering at Jai Alai, Flag person for a construction company. I took census door to door..not fun! I was an Avon Lady, a guard for Burns, A nursey school teacher on and on. I am smart but hate it when it when a job gets old or we have to move again (Military).
    My favorite job was phased out from under me , an inventory clerk for Wal-Mart Vision Center, I got to order, recieve shipments and do stock balances all over the store. (Ummm, sounds a lot like ordering e-stuff!) Not tied to a desk. I made up order forms that they still use. But in their wisdom..not, they decided that the store inventory clerks could do better. They didn't.
    I am married..often. Mike and I have been married 33 years. I have 2 grown kids and 2 grands. I was born into a military family and married Military.
    I love doing genealogy and have tracked down GGGGrandparents from all over. There are a few that must have been in witness protection.
    That's pretty much 'ME". Who are you?
    Remember NO dates, NO last names or id of any kind, Bad people are on the internet!
    Any of you can start a thread on any topic you like..and please do!

    Wow..what a cool idea for a thread. I too sometimes have trouble staying on topic. I think thats a side effect of our multifunctional girl brains lol. My hubby can't keep up with girl talk..for instance. Ever notice how when you have say 5 or 6 women chatting..that you can not only follow the conversation you have going with this person, but you also hear and follow whats being said by everyone else, all at the same time? Anyway thats why we can't stay on topic I think. *could be true

    I agree, I can do 6 things at once, not well but still..
    The best threads are the ones that drift into the unknown. But for some who are trying to find an answer..it's a bit annoying. So as long as the drift doesn't take us too far off topic, no problem.
    In this thread that would really be hard to do!
    Somebody who is handy at picture posting start a thread about..as seen on T.V. let's see how many people fell for the hype.
    What about who were you in high school, the cheerleader, the jock, goth, geek, shrinking violet ect.
    Check out my lastest uh oh in fun, frighting and foolish flavors. (I am writing it as we speak)

    Wildsky..I too can have selective hearing at times. I get that way when I'm on the computer reading and someone comes in to ask me something or just to talk to me. I find it hard sometimes to tune into what they are saying.

    I've spent so much time on computers that I feel my attention span is shot..I used to read 2 to 3 books a week, now I can barely get through a chapter before I either fall asleep or lose interest. I think the internet has changed the way I read. Anyone else feel this way?

    OK - I find it hard to walk and chew gum!

    I was born and raised in New Jersey.

    I just love to laugh and have fun.

    My favorite pasttimes are my grandkids, baking, playing Texas Holdem and swimming. Oh , add vaping and this forum to that list!

    I have 2 daughters and they each have 2 daughters.

    I was separated in 1981 and divorced in 1986. Yes, it was a long one!
    I was a stay at home Mom until the separation, which forced me to go
    out and get a job. My pay was not 'cutting it', so I went to school in the evening to become a computer programmer. Once working as a programmer, I went to college at night and got a degree in computer science. I have been working as a programmer for 23 years now. Wow,
    it seems like yesterday! I enjoy what I do, but I am looking forward to
    retirement.

    I'm kinda surprised this thread hasn't gotten more replies than it has. Being a motor mouth myself I see it as a great opportunity to run my mouth freely. What can be better than that I ask you? So Mary made this thread so we could just express our thoughts..lets not disappoint her.

    So I've been spending so much time on this board that I've gotten very little done around home. I find this whole ecig thing fascinating and its been fun trying to learn all I can. I'm on Day 3 now without a real ciggy and not really wanting one and that surprises me. Even though I'm not happy with my current ecig, its still loads better than smoking.

    Cori, from what I can see on the board..there is always a better, bigger, fatter, sleeker, smaller, more vapor then Old faithful and comes in 23 colors P.V. around every corner! I like my mod, the P.E., no fuss no muss. LOL
    Oh Cori..3 days! Whoohoo keep it up girlfriend!
    Hilway..good onya! That must have been rough going back to school and all. I bet you were puffed up as a peacock on grad day. I sure would have been!
    My daughter and son had their birthdays last month and this month. They were 38 and 39! It's getting harder and harder to try to con people with the young mother thing..at this rate I will soon be telling people I had them when I was 12 and 13! My daughter is trying to backtrack too..I told her we both can't be getting younger! Her 16 year old son loves to tease us and says he plans to be a young father! Oh good grief that would make me a Great grand mother....no! No! *faint*

    lol Mary.. my son told me when he was about 7 that I could be 24 yrs old forever..what a sweet child he was. However, now that he's over 24 himself he wants to go back on that..told him NOPE, I'm just 24 you're older than your own MOM. He says thats just wrong. I'm 24 forever!
