Ok, I just got back from 4 days travel &
no Jason in sight on this site.
What happened while I was gone??
What did I miss??
When will he be back??
Has he been banished to disney ??
its just NOT the same w/o his humor
sage advice,& opinions...
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Jason departed the BAH forum in search of remodeling work at Disney. I think he's working in the cabinet/granite/tyvek/felt/architectural review division. Last I heard.
Okay, Mizzou... straight up. Are you saying Jason got sent to Disney? I can see the giant chicken getting hired, but Jason?
Jason IS at Disney. The chicken went to KFC.
I'll have an order of hot wings and a side of potato salad.
Original or extra crispy?????
Original. Throw in some baked beans while you're fetchin'!!
$5.37. Please drive around.
HEY! I gave you a $20 bill! Where'd you learn to count change?! I want to speak to a manager - NOW.
Your are a manager? ARGH!!!!
okwriter (who better not find any fingers in that food...)
The only finger you'll see is sticking out the drive-in window. Check your mirror.
Rita, I think that such inappropriate hand gestures qualify as sexual huh-rass-ment (or is that harris-ment?). Now you can sue, pay off the house and go on the Oprah/Dr. Phil circuit to speak candidly about how you were made a victim by such degrading treatment.
Or, you could just park your truck, go inside and whip Mizzou's butt, in which case he can sue you and be on the talkshows.
Your choice, but I think I'd personally go for the $4 million.
I've always been accused of thinking too much, so bear with me. Are you saying he took his family and went on a vacation and is physically present at DisneyLand/World... or are you saying he's spinning on the cyber-teacups? Your answer was NOT straight up, my friend. Now give it to me straight, please!
Jason is eternally floating off in cyberspace. Mizzou may have more details, but I have the clear answers. He's gone. Kaput. In nowhere-land. Took a flying leap off a tall granite building. Spoke out of the realm of appropriateness in terms of forum politics/rules.
Doesn't mean we can't make fun of his chicken, though.
Ha, Ha, Ha! She expects you to play it straight. VERY funny Darcy! You're a hoot today!!
Joke: A Blonde was on her way to Disney world from Maryland. She had driven all the way, and was very close. Then she saw a sign that said Disney World, Left, and turned around and went all the way home.
Jason at Dizney:
What part of "Jason IS at Disney" do you not understand? Straight up as I can get it. YES HE IS SPINNING IN THE TEACUPS. Well, he may be over at Epcot right now, not sure. But yes the "vacation" was NOT planned.
OK, so I'll ask. What happened? Did I miss a particularly contentious thread over the weekend or was this a cumulative thing? No 'puter at home right now, so I'm Monday through Friday only, and it certainly wouldn't be the first time I missed something.
Also, is he "vacationing" or has he been sentenced to a permanent ride on the teacups?
It has to be just a "vacation" because his member page is still there. Go back to any old thread that he participated in, and click on his name. From there, you can send him an email and ask him up front and personal, if you're feeling bold. If he were in permanent banishment, the member page would be missing.
Even I don't have the total 411. I read the infamous "architect" thread but just what SPECIFICALLY was on there that got up Spike's nose? I can't see a thing.
I love a mystery.
Email me if ya want DH's (Mr Sexy Voice!) work phone number. Enjoyed talkin' to you girlfriend!!!!!!!
TNLady: He has me fixed up for right now. And ummmm, the company I work for makes telephone voice and data recorders so the conversations I had with your DH this morning are recorded. You're right ~ he does have a sexy voice! And I can go back and listen to those recordings over and over and over again... LOL! I really enjoyed talking to you, too. I can hardly wait to come see your house. Maybe next year I'll be able to take some time off. All of my last vacation time was eaten up with DHs trip to Mayo, winter illnesses, moving in (yeah!), etc.
Housewitch is right about that gesture being harassment. And don't think I didn't see it, Mizzou.
So,... watcha gonna do bout it? Go off whining to some high price silk suit lawyer? BAHrr #32 - "deal with it and then go get a life".
disclaimer "for newbies who might venture here, okwriter and I do this kinda stuff all the time"
See, this is the new kinder, gentler Mizzou_KX.
Hey, do you think if we all went on "STRIKE" demanding Jason be returned to the forum that it would help. Instead of answering questions we could just post responses with nothing but little people with signs marching across the screen. 'Cept I don't know how to do that.
Will this work?
I wonder how many muffins I could have gotten made in the amount of time I peeked on here today.... hmmmmm. (It's not the same... this is quickie stuff, muffins involve prep, bake, clean-up, package... ;)
Hey, Muffin-Woman..Don't 'ya know you're on St. Peter's list for sinning so...Just do the dough/flour cover-up next time!
Ok, I'm gonna email Spike for the true 411. Will report in the morning.
Rita, Yeah...the voice is like a drug (I can be totally PMS-ing and it calms me like some good 70's Red). Fortunately, he's also cute (awesome bu++), and sooo kind even my cranky Mom loves him. He's # 3 and Definitively "The Charm!!"
Ok, off to do the Spike thing...Will report tomorrow.
I guess I missed out on all of this!
Will tune in tomorrow for the true scoop.
I'll go on a hunger strike until Jason comes back. (hehehe, right!)
I do miss Jason, but not enough NOT to EAT! That's one of the last few joys in life once you reach a certain age!
What part of "Jason IS at Disney" do you not understand? Straight up as I can get it. YES HE IS SPINNING IN THE TEACUPS.
Well, HELLO! The teacups are for real, too, you know! He could've been at the real DisneyLand. So was this a political infraction, a religious infraction, or an Imposing Pictures of Giant Chickens infraction? Inquiring minds want to know. (hi Jason! Managed to get your own thread again, didn't you?)
Da*%! If I had known we were going to go on strike for our favorite Michigander, I would have delayed paying my membership fee that I just got reminded to pay, only 1 minute prior to reading this thread.
I have tried the hunger strike thing, and I am just not strong enough. How about a sit down strike? I am real good at sitting and I have a mean holler for the chanting and singing
"We will over-cooome, we will over-co-o-ome, we will overcome someday-ay-ay-ay-ay!"
You should hear my "Whoo-whoo-whoo." It is awesome. I better work on a cluck in honor of the big chicken, though.
I'd rather sit with Nancy and sneak in some HoHo's. "Whoooo-Who!" How's that?!
sm6, I was told in another thread there was an arguement between the chicken king and an architect. I searched Jason's name and read posts. Only one really stuck out as an arguement and it wasn't harsh, IMO. Especially harsh enought to be sent to Disney! Maybe they deleted "the cause." Maybe mr. architect has connections with Mickey Mouse.
I actually saw some comments btwn him and another poster on the Porches/Decks forum. Kinda cutting, if ya don't know Jason's personality.... maybe that one did it?
Ok, here's the 411 (I hate that term). The abridged version. Jason and the new architect were having a "discussion", actually several "discussions" on two or three different threads. Things got a little "testy", Jason got a warning and some of the replies were zapped. Then he made another "reply" that, it could be assumed, questioned the reasoning behind zapping his replies.
Then he was gone.
Ah, yes... questioning the zap will do it every time. For those who haven't had the honor of tickets to Disney, you will most likely receive a warning. Take it seriously. Do not question it. Do not argue. Do not push your luck. If you disregard my advice, you will likely find yourself on those dizzying teacups. You have two choices at that point: beg Spike for foregiveness, which may/may not be granted OR register under another name, which may - I repeat MAY - work unless/until you are caught.
okwriter (who really really really really misses Jason but refuses to participate in a strike that involves giving up food)
Poor Jason. I shudder to think what has happened to him since his departure from here. (sigh)
Well, shoot. Did some editing and messed up my link.
Did you say the Sit In involves eating HoHo's? I could try that protest. I'm in the middle of my morning coffee here on the West Coast, however, so I'm out on the hunger strike.
And BTW, don't you think it would be fun if Spike would let us vote on who rides the Teacups? Things could really get interesting. LOL
hmmmmmmmmmmm, Darcy. You got someone specifically in mind???
Haven't heard back from Spike. Do I hear a Bawwwwkkkk, bawwwwkkkk, bawwwk (Well, he!! ~ like I know HOW to spell what a REAL chicken says!!)??!!
Not only am I still PMS`ing but I've got GOT GOTTTTT to get out the last of my 200 Housewarming invitations today.
Thank God I don't have to pretend to make Muffins...;)>>>>
200? Oh, lordy. That woman needs help.
200 invitations? Good God, woman!
You need a hick-ier class of friends. Don't you know that you print out 50 invitations with the words "Bring Friends" in large bold font on the bottom? You then kill a hog, buy a keg, start a fire, and hire 3 off-duty local cops to provide shuttle services. Sheesh! Where you from?
LOL@housewitch! I like your idea of a party!
(...and I'm sure you already know that I have serious house envy but had to make some kind of comment on that house nominating thread just to "fit in" with these city slickers...)
TWO HUNDRED? Ack.
And no, I don't have anyone in mind at the moment, but there's been a few along the way.
I'm thinking if it were just friends - not family - I could make a list of 20 people. (LOL!) But 200?????
Those are not her friends, but rather all the people who she wants to show off how well she succeeded...
If she invited all the people who think her DH has a sexy voice, I'd be on the list. Otherwise, I doubt I'll get an invite! (Ya'll call her sometime in the evening when her DH is there and you'll see what I mean!) Oh, and what else would a southern lady be doing in the evening than frying catfish and making tartar sauce?! Oh, how I covet her porch and long for the day when I can go sit there with her. (YIKES! I'm starting to sound like a stalker now, aren't I? Don't worry... I am actually just an axe murderer but I rarely stray out of this county!)
Might Jason be camping with those argonauts or astronauts or whatever? You know, those guys chasing after golden fleece. Do they have that theme at Disney? OMG, I do hope he isn't trapped in Small World. Who could be THAT mean?
200?!?!?!?!?!?! I don't KNOW 200 people. Are you sending them to the friends, family AND the people that helped build your house? Where are they ALL going to sit?! I don't think that porch will hold 'em all!
She must be related to those people in Atlanta who invited 600 of their closest friends to the wedding....
LOL!!! (at the above!)
Claire de Luna's ode to Jason. She calls it her "Crazed by Remodeling Chicken!"
Is he laying eggs?! ;)
I don't "know" Jason the way most of you know him, but I must say I enjoyed his forthright posts. No waffling, short and to the point. He had a lot of good information that he was generous about sharing and I appreciated that. I thought he spiced things up a bit. Will we get too thin skinned and sensitive with him gone?! Of course Mizzou's still here for now, unless the burn out takes its toll...
No hunger strike here either. I'm typing one handed as I eat my neapolitan ice cream cone. Mmmmmmmm!
Well,... we're all bowing down to the forum gods in hopes that Jason will return. Have to wait and see.
But in the meantime we'll just have to keep hoping for the chicken man to return.
Hey, somebody remind me to proofread this stuff at night when I'm tired. Geez, if those weren't two redundant sentences, I don't know what is.
I read your post twice thinking I wasn't getting enough sleep! lol Maybe putting the little "things" in your threads are getting to be "a bit much" for you! (Sounds like a good BAHRR!)
Well, all I gots to say is that there aint much testosterone around here anymore.
Really, the architect needed to listen to what was being said by the majority of the forum, and he wouldve been better because of it. The repost by the architect, didnt last long enough for me to even see a response, but I could tell by the tone of it, that it was going to be a doozy, if left on the board.
And the architects name is.....
Rollie, I can kick up the testosterone (ok... PMS) if you want. I'd gladly unleash on someone... you just have to be my Cyrano (sp? The guy who fed the other guy lines from a bush) so I sound half way intelligent.
Let me do it! Let me do it!
Watch this.... Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
See???? I can do it.
Yeah, who was that archy? Gotta watch out for him if he's going to incite teacup spinning among our favorite forumers!
As I recall the architect threw out a churlish post that said he felt he wasn't welcome here and that he was leaving us for greener pastures so I doubt we'll be hearing from him again. If only he knew what angst he caused on the BAH forum!
Yes, I'm afraid said architect felt that large numbers of posters were *anti-architect*. Whether or not that is true, I believe that most of us were actually *anti-rude, condescending, superior, argumentative architect who posts to the forums*.
I say if you don't want an
opinion don't ask for one.
How long does this exile to disney last??
How about anti-rude, condescending, superior, argumentative _________________ who posts to forums?
I think forever.
not exiled forever! please please let us do something to get jason back. he must be having some jack right now and enjoying his own post but we need need need his insights. what can we do? and can somebody send a link to the post where he had discussion with the architect?
Chicken Man is still here. He's under an Alias which we don't really want to divulge lest it endanger him.
I'll see if Mizzou, OK, and I can come up with a way to divulge that info to you.
I would say Email me off mypage and I'd tell you...But ya know there are people with spy cameras, muffins, bad contracts and GOD on their side that might get that info somehow.
We'll figure somethin' out this next week ;)
TNLady, If that be true I doubt it'll take long to figure him out. In fact, it may become a personal challenge.
I think Jason is Paris. ;^)
I dont care who you are, thats funny, right there!
Greenbank, that was absolutely hilarious. You win the one-liner of the year award, flat out.
Ya gotta think, though--if you were sent to the teacups, wouldn't the sweetest "revenge" be to come back as the next Dave or Paris? Assuming, of course, they only block your username and not your IP.
Jason as Paris????? I think not. If he does return I can guarantee he won't assume a French name.
I was expecting Jason's name to be in article. Would explain where he's been!
Here is a link that might be useful: Chicken Ticketed for Crossing Road
So TNLady, what's the plan? C'mon, let's hear it, you said you'd come up with one.
Waiting on the west coast, too. Tapping fingers...
Who is this jason?
A. He's a figment of our imagination! ;)
B. A hero in our eyes!
C. A forum friend who gives great advice.
D. None of the above.
E. Most of the above.
And he has this big chicken that goes with him everywhere (helps him cross the road). He's rants about cabinet prices, people spending money on granite, and other stuff, but other than that he's pretty ok.
Right now he's on vacation at Disney. I think he was standing in the beer line last we heard.
I've never been to Disney (as an adult)... do they even SELL beer there? Or is that how parents cope with the screaming, mind boggling rides (and kids, for that matter) as well as spend a small fortune in the tourist shops?
Has anyone emailed Spike to plead for release? Maybe if we drown him with tears he will decide we have all suffered enough.
Although, it has been kinda fun. For him it's probably like in Huck Finn when they come back to hear their own Eulogies. He should never, ever be insecure for the rest of his life because he has the knowledge that he has great friends he has never met who will back him up, no matter the circumstances.
How many people can say that?....
Do you think there's a rule about not talking about who's gone to Disney? 'Cuz whenever someone does on the kitchen forum they all seem to tiptoe around the names. Personally I'd like to make a list. You know how sometimes people disappear and it takes you awhile to notice? Take TexasGal5, for example. Since she'd just finished her house I assumed she jumped ship. I didn't know for a long time that she'd headed to the big D. Anybody else around here?
Yes, there is a rule about such complaints. The rule is : Grow up. Live with it. Let this be a warning to you--- complaining will get you no where.
OK? Jason is bright enough to figure this out. I have faith in him. If YOU complain, you're liable to get yanked.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
Fairegold... you're so good with all the rules! I say we officially name Fairegold the "keeper of rules and all things fair(egold)." hehehe
... and there's no need to plead for someones release. Throwing yourself on the mercy of the courts has no effect here. Came close to getting a "pass" myself tryin' to do that. Course, it could have been my "attitude".
Not that there's anything wrong with that. :-)
There's no rule about discussing those on vacation though, as long as you don't start hurling spears at those who sent them into exile.
Mizzou, we ALL know you don't have an "attitude!"
I heard it sometimes takes months before getting a warning on a post. I would think it would take place quicker than that...maybe that explains why Mizzou is still around! ;0
Having been to Disney, I can tell you it is no fun... The only possible hope of being allowed to return here is to plead for mercy. That may/may not work. And I understand it doesn't do much good to plead on someone else's behalf, which is pretty sad.
I wonder if we could/should start something up somewhere so that even the NEPs (now exiled posters) could join in the conversation.
Someone mentioned a blog on the thread here
that just reached 100.
I am not really familiar with the details
only the concept, having only visited a couple,
but if I can figure it out...all of you whizes
could also. Then I could ask for help!
What do y'all think?
Blog or no blog?
The veiled refrences are kind of funny, but make
us very clique-ish to others.
P. S. I can't believe you got sent to disney!
How long was your exile?
I know, not keeping up as I should...
But I am still trying to get some idea of the
length of the exile...its been weeks
I need my Jason fix...
Why can't J*son just register under another name and post? How would they know!?
I think perhaps he tried that, allison, but someone outed him ~ perhaps even unintentionally.
ER: Mine lasted about 10 days until I could no longer bear the agony. I pleaded and begged and promised to always behave from that point on so I was granted re-entry but with a stern warning.
I will do some checking about alternate locations...
I'm not really a stickler for rules, and I don't really care, but I've watched this happen in a number of different forums over several years. And when people make a lot of noise about someone else that got Disneyed, gee, those people tend to disappear to the teacups, too. So I am just passing along observations from several years of reading these forums.
I did not know texasgal went to disney also. i thought she was just busy with her new house. I hope cheerit did not go to disney either.
I miss both those posters, too. texasgal is apparently a victim of her own beliefs (poor girley; I hope the scorpions didn't run her out! and, does she like her two storied family room now?), but Cheerit dumped us. She's posted in furniture & child raising many times. Too bad.
Cheerit dumped us???
Ok peeps I have a big favor to ask.
I have NEVER had a thread of mine reach 100.
(Guess I just lack the magnetic appeal of
Want to help me out??
Only need 10 more!
Then we can put it to rest, and visit w/Jason!
I'll help out.
I didn't know texasgal or cheerit..but how nice can she be if she DUMPED ya'll?!
According to "the rules" we can't post just to manipulate this thread in the rotation. So while we are "technically" unable to post just to bump this up to 100, we can continue to answer questions that pertain to the original or subsequent posts here.
Where is Jason? Jason who?
I'll help. I too like to see people reach their goals.
We went to Disney last year and had a good time.
Hum....Didn't ride those darned tea cups though, maybe that's why it was enjoyable ;)
Have a good day all
okwriter is correct about manipulating threads. I wouldn't want to get caught doing that.
I miss Texasgal and Cheerit. Sorry to hear the former is in Disney.
Hey, y'all quit manipulating this post. Can't you read????? :-)
4 to go.
Careful Mizzou, any time I hear someone yell "Four!", I duck! (well, ok, so that's "Fore" - but close enough...)
It's ya'll not y'all! ;0
Jason, Jason...dear, sweet Jason. I heard he's moved on.
I heard he was reincarnated as an architect.
LOL I should post a picture of Jason and the big chicken.
I don't think you can say "chicken" here.
Rumor has it the chicken is dead. The Evil Monkey killed him. We've obtained this secret, hidden camera of the deed in progress.....perhaps you should make sure no young children are in the room before viewing.
I wanted to ask you a question about Delores' house. Are you the same Rollie?
