or does a large percentage of our membership have its collective knickers in a twist lately?
About 4 months ago a wave of rampant stupidity hit the board. The recent wave of bitchiness is a welcome change.
Oh, then I'll just shut the fuck up until the stupidity comes back into style.
LOL! Knickers in a twist,as in shorts in a wad? Football season is starting. Lot of lonely neglected housewifes,easy pickings...Isnt life wonderfull?:tongue:
My knickers are definitely twisted.
I'm not gay, but if I were...
Don't like my twisted knickers? Piss off.
I'll have you know my knickers are neatly folder in my top drawer.
(kindly say last two italicized words with Connecticut lockjaw)
Four months... that would be about...Hey!!!
Gosh, I can't remember the last time I had my knickers on...but damned if I didn't get 'em all twisted trying to get the damned things off! :redface:
That's riiiight, Miss April. That would be about the time that ...
I've found the board slightly bitching and boring. But it comes (and goes) in waves, right? And how like life ...
That is the rumour still.
I keep getting told that the board is going through ups and down. I believe it. I am sure that it will work out eventually. Best to just hold on and flow out.
Well I never!
But don't you speak with a Massachusetts accent?
I agree...I got so sick of political rants, dumb posts, tightassed prudes , political correctness that I removed my pics and personal info from my profile! Then, alex warned us about potential legal hassles. BUT, it seems lately that things are improving. And, finally, we're getting more posts from women too...I'm 100% gay, but always like hearing what genuinely horny women think. Maybe lpsg is recovering?
Probably not what you'd think of as a Massachusetts accent prepstud no.
There are two "Yankee" accents one much more pervasive than the other now.
The accent I think of as Bostonian is different than what most people think of when they hear that new twangy thing that sounds like Brooklynese watered down with South Boston. That's the first youtube clip I've posted.
The Connecticut lockjaw I refer to is that "Arian from Darien" talk from Auntie Mame. It's a contrived sort of clenched teeth parlance.
The accent I come from is a cross between Bette Davis and K. Hepburn. I've had to modify it to be intelligible to anyone outside my own family group and especially when speaking to people from other parts of the country. Madame Zora has spoken to me on the telephone and she can vouch for how pronounced my accent (second clip) is.
New Bostonese (this is how most people who are raised locally to speak now)
Old Bostonese (this is how I was raised to speak... exactly) My parents and much of my extended family still speak precisely in this "mannah"
...I joined as well.
Do I get to wear a Mr. April sash?:wink:
I'm sorry... It is not you, it's me...:wink:
Actually, if you were to use me as a gage, likely the board has had a bitchier tone. I know in my real life I have been a little short, and it has probably spilled over to this site.
HEY! Where da FUCK do YOU get off?!
