Old friends of Aristus, check in here. I feel like I don't know anybody anymore.
Long-time friends have gone. I feel alone here. :-(

I've been a member here almost ten years. Lurking for longer than that. Been through an awful lot with an awful lot of awfully good people. But I can't remember the last time I contributed more than two replies to any given thread here.

'William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day' has been shelved because I just don't have the time anymore.

Could I get some long-time Loungers and anyone who has considered me a friend to post a reply here?

I miss you...

5. Hey, Aristus. I recognize your name. I honestly can't remember when we were on the
same side, plinking away at some common enemy, and when we were on opposite sides, plinking away at each other. But I've seen you show in many a fight. If you ever nicked me with one of your shots, I've forgotten it. And if I ever nicked you with one of mine, I hope you'll think it wasn't personal and forgive me for the injury. You're an old-timer here :)

You're right, there are lots of new faces here. I miss Shakespeare's thought for the day, they were always so clever. But I understand real life comes first. Hope things are well for you.

49. I'm going to try to make it a Saturday thing. Maybe starting this Saturday.
How does that sound?

I thought for sure that having the Clown Prince out of our White House would cause the well of inspiration to dry up. But the birthers and the anti-worker idjits are pretty much a target-rich environment these days. So I'll drag my Riverside Shakespeare off the shelf and get busy this weekend.

B-)

But I'll be sure to say 'hi' when I see you. It occurred to me just now that I should be more attentive to my old friends here, just as you all have been to me on this thread.

I appreciate most greatly... B-)

Odd comment, that is one of the intentions of lack of beer and travel money.

A part of attempts to isolate.

Many times it tries to even steer a person to associate with some other group.

Although you can see it how you like.



Think about it, the posts here have explained some pretty reasonable stuff.

And show how context can show many things.


Side note the one of the songs here was also played during same tax debate earlier. However the flip should make the difference.


And nobody replied to thread
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Thats funny.


And I posted a Shakespeare quote, with explanation in another thread. A rose is a rose by any other name. That statement shows Shakespeare had to overcome label trap, and use of nouns to try and distort things.

And hello, good to see you again.

Although counting on Pal getting gun out of holster. Without mistake or harm.

90. Oh, crazy days, sometimes.
Today, I went full-bore all freaking day, and when I got to the end, it turned out I had only seen 17 patients! It seemed like half-again as many!

Three or four times today, I got the dreaded: "Oh, just one more thing, Doc!" That leads to another 5-10 minutes of poking and prodding while other patients are kicking their heels in the other exam rooms...

And I did a baseline physical exam on a patient today whose personal hygiene was so foul, I could barely eat my lunch afterward...

Well, there's the autopsy trick - a smear of Vick's VapoRub under the nose or the paramedic one - snap an ammonia capsule.

Remember: Twice blessed is he who gets paid to do work he loves.

69. Oh Aristus! Don't you remember? It was Vienna 1938. I pulled you
out of that dank prison after the brownshirts had beaten you nearly senseless. Our dangerous flight across Germany into France and on to Britain will always be my greatest adventure. Don't you remember that proud day when FDR pinned the medal on you?

84. Yeah, and then William Donovan tried to recruit us for the OSS.
Remember what I said to him?

"An Irish-Catholic Republican? You're mother would be ashamed of you! No chance!"

Ah, memories...

94. So many friends are gone but this thread proves just how many are left....
I don't post much anymore but I still love this place. I remember being able to post a thread without even thinking about being flamed-now I over-think every post. The only thing thats certain is change and boy has DU changed over the years...

111. I remember when I knew the names of every DU member.
Of course that didn't last long, maybe a month. But the names still bring back memories. Nuevocat, sffreeways, CrewLeader, etc...

I'm thrilled to read that Aristus will be starting up his Shakespeare threads again this weekend.

I always loved those!

When will we get a DUer who starts threads like "Boogers: Glue of the Gods" or "How to put cheese slices in the local ATM". What the Hell did Willy the Shake ever do???

:P

99. I know nothing about boogers.
And putting slices of cheese in an ATM is something I can't even imagine. What kind of hooligans would do such things? You know, I fear for my country when we have cheese placing criminals on the loose.

109. I don't know about "Friends" but I remember supporting your return to school
and correctly stated that you'd do very well.

I do miss William Shakespeare's quote of the day; recently saw a quote from The Tempest that would have been wonderful against Donald Trump (can't remember it offhand).

Yer one of the good ones, Aristus. Keep a positive vibe.

of everybody here, including you.

Thank you. :thumbsup:

I hope you got a chance to see the Weekend Edition of WSTFTD, last Saturday.
