The Posting Pool

Well... yup. It's December 31, there's a bit of snow on the ground, temps are at a daytime high of 20 or so and we're all going to jump into my little pool.

Nope... not quite the polar bear club. You see this pool is kind of a timely consideration, for g_s has guaranteed that he will have a new post up by tomorrow. And to make matters worse for him, he's also guaranteed that it will not be a fluff post, nor a clip post (I think), but one of substance that we all will enjoy. A "shiny new one" to use his term.

Now I understand that the phrase "shiny new one" has been used time and again to promote something not so shiny or new, but that's the substance with which we will fill this pool.

So here it is... Does g_s make the cut? Does he break the long drought on posting ending it at a mere 45 days? Are we going to have to suffer through another Meg Ryan post? Do we all get to have his home address and pelt him with smelt? YOU make the call! Tell us all whether g_s will actually live up to his promise, and do you think the substance of said post is actually going to be shiny and new.

I'll go first.

Tomorrow he will have a post up, but it will be an apology telling all of us he really tried but during his week off he was forced to drink afterbirth nog and is just getting over the hangover now.

EDIT: Well... there's no sense in letting a good pool go to waste, so we'll mix it up slightly. When is g_s actually going to make a post?

I'll start... He'll have one up on... Friday, but it will be postdated back to January 1.

I don't know who g_s is and the link didn't work. Damn it all to hell!

Or ignore all that and just a hmmm instead.

What do you mean the link didn't work? :innocent:

Try it now...

However... it still doesn't matter, you could still make your wager in the pool.

I wager no new post by midnight (eastern, or any other u.s. time zone).

Oh, and I figured out why CBS didn't want to take your money. You didn't make their minimum age cut. Don't you have to be at least 65 to watch their stuff?

Wha? You just take some Juicy Fruit of the Womb and stick it in the blender with a little sugar, cinnamon, cream, vanilla and... voila!

Stop that! And go back and read the edit. I'm betting I'll go 0-2, but what the heck... I'm an optimist.

I think he's doing to take longer than that. Maybe by February 1.

Thank you for stopping by Field Lines (okay, better late than never *blush*)!

CBS sounds as crotchety and stubborn as its news anchors. With cable TV they should be happy anyone wants to watch their station at all. I can't remember the last thing I watched on CBS that wasn't a sporting event.

Happy New Year to you!

Thanks Babe! I'm glad that your unremarkable self finally made it to the End of the World. :P

Every time I come here I get that damned REM song stuck in my head. Thanks a LOT. I hate those guys.
