just trying to leave comments but can’t… don’t know why and, fyi dear admins, there’s a black box following me around here… seriously i mean…

so this seemed the next best thing
as we are still in test mode (see buhdy, i said we…)

but happy to see old friends here and just wanted to say hellooooo to everybody except ek, who is ignoring me at present

i don’t have any ponies, but i do have a cute joke


WELL… you might relate to this woman’s tale…

I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. I noticed his DDS diploma, which bore his full name.

Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my high school class nearly 40 years ago. Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then?

Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.

After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park High School.

“Yes. Yes, I did. I’m a mustang,” he gleamed with pride.

“When did you graduate?” I asked.

He answered, “in 1968. Why do you ask?”

“You were in my class!” I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, old, wrinkled, bald, fat, gray, decrepit son-of-a-bitch asked, “What did you teach

    Joke time! (Did you post yourself to the front page?)

    Lady goes into furniture store.

    Floor attendant approaches. “May I help you madam?”

    –I’m looking for a sexual sofa.

    –I have never heard of such, madam. We do however have some sectional sofas that might interest you.

    –Well, sectional, sexual, what’s the difference? I just want an occasional piece in the living room.

    you posted some this morning – did it suddenly stop working?  What happens when you try to reply to a comment or post a new one? Where is the black box showing up?

    SoapBlox was just upgraded to a new AJAX comment system. There are still some bugs with various browsers. Let me know what browser version you have and more about the problem you are seeing and I will log the bug with pacified. 

    The other thing you could try for immediate relief is exiting your browser and coming back in.  Also do a page refresh – hold down the Shift key and press the reload button.  (or F5 might work too)

    For the FP posting – there is a check box in the diary editor that allows you to post to front page. Uncheck that box if you just want the diary to appear in the recent list.

      I have no trouble commenting but great difficulty reccing – they don’t take most of the time. Consider yourself recced.

        when i hit reply, now it throws me up to top and i have to come back down here

        i’m using safari and did refresh, but same problem

        and the box shape shifts from small rectangle to page-width box…

        i’m going to log off entirely and reboot…

    1. See my post on the FP re the ‘other options’ box.

      This is NOT a rebuke directed at you!

      And I am greatly heartened to see you change from ‘you guys’ to ‘we!”

      That being said….

      What do you get from a barbed wire enema?



      A semi-colon!
