Hey! Your plonker's busted.

I'm just irresistible, I guess. Ahem.

Hey! Your plonker's busted.

Nope, I simply reconsidered after my first cup of coffee this morning.

I've encountered many people over my years on usenet who act like snobs and bitches. If they *** me off, over time, I tend to ignore them completely. I usually don't give them the satisfaction of a plonk.

I don't normally resort to lists. Just googled up a ... to knock me over, again, I dub it large. ;-)

I just asked all of my Labs how they prefer to be classified, and they all agreed (yes, it was unanimous!), it doesn't matter to them, provided I keep feeding them on schedule.

LMAO! So true.

Hi! You strike me as someone who has never said "I was wrong" or "I made a mistake." You seem like more of an "I'm sorry you misunderstood me" or "I'm sorry you're so touchy" kind of person.

Dogs don't know when a similar situation is OK or not OK! For example they don't know the difference between an old pair of socks and a new pair. Or old shoes and new shoes. All the same to them!

Cubbe says that worn socks are far preferable to clean ones, and she, with her powerful nose, knows the difference. We taught her to chase a ball by putting in in a worn sock (and clicker training). We figured she already liked socks so it was only a matter of redirecting her.
But seriously, I've found that dogs are terrible generalizers. They don't generalize from one pair of shoes to the next. Puppies just chew whatever is appealing. They don't think that chewing the old shoe is O.K. so the new one must be O.K. also. Ideally, they think that chewing the old shoe is O.K., and everything else is locked up in the closet. They don't generalize from the chew toy you bought special for the purpose and shoes.
The same goes for children. Jumping on and roughhousing with one kid is O.K. if that's the kid that likes to roughhouse back. If the dog gets a bad response from trying to jump on the next kid (let's call this training), he learns not to jump on that kid. (Training probably starts with redirection, i.e. teaching a sit, then commanding the dog to sit when it looks like he wants to jump.)

If it's big enough to put it's front paws on/over my shoulders, I call it large*. And if it's heavy enough to knock me over, again, I dub it *large.

Yes. Energetic bouncy dogs are larger than the shy retiring types of the same size.

And you've come to this conclusion after exactly one day of knowing* me. This from someone who insisted the usage of the word *axe* was an *accent and not a mispronunciation of a common everyday word. Do I detect a bit of PKB?
Actually, I'm pretty well-known for giving new posters a chance before jumping all over 'em. In fact, but for a very few, I'm not much of a jumper to begin with. I find lots of usenet behavior to be rather juvenile in nature. A bit of good-natured banter back and forth is one thing, but acting like a jr. high snobby clique is another. JMHO

TD, Little Miss Shelly and Mr. Bean are a tag team. They dot each other's "i"s and cross each other's "t"s.
They may even be the same person, because no one has ever seen them in the same room together.
Yes, they are snobs and bitches, and things even worse than that, too.

Unfortunately, those are both terms of endearment to these two shrews.

They actually strive to be as snobby and bitchy as they can, and they can be quite snobby and bitchy, to say the least.

Think of Maude Findlay and Leona Helmsley here, but without any male companionship.
Heh.

Why "liberal" doesn't quite fit:
"In the short term, this reflects the failure of the Republican Party to secure its hard-won victories. In the longer term, this may provide a new opportunity for the heirs to authentic liberalism - today's conservatives - as they often thrive when lovers of big government, by whatever name they go by, overreach." http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2007/08/why-liberal-doe.html

"The main proponents of 'universal coverage' want to throw more money at the current health care system, which strikes me as unwise. I believe that the 'universal coverage' mantra is dysfunctional for the same reason that 'more money for public schools' is a dysfunctional mantra for education. When your current approach is digging you into a hole, the sensible thing to do is not to dig faster. It is to stop digging." http://www.tcsdaily.com/article.aspx?id=080607B
