Favorite Threads Thread

beekeeperswifeNovember 29, 2011

This forum is such a wonderful place. It's a place where we can ask for advice on our kitchen design, whether it's a reno or a new build. It's a place we can freak out when we need to be calmed after nearly killing a contractor. It's a place where we share our joyful news. And sometimes it's a place we turn when we are very sad.

There have been some threads here that are hysterical and cause me to laugh. You know the ones, they go to 150 postings within a day or two.

So what is your favorite, or most memorable thread? If you can't find it through GW's search engine (really a big surprise) use Google, you will find it.

When you find your favorite thread, post the link so that it is a direct link. Sometimes that option doesn't appear right below the box where you type your reply, but rather it appears when you do the preview.

I hope we can find some fun memories to share with some of the newer members.

Just want to say Thank You to all of you for all the hand holding over the years. And please get ready...I will need a lot of support as we get ready to leave the famous Beekeeperswife kitchen and build something new.

My choice is towel pig thread.

It has to be I Poured Milk in my Salad, which was before my time but I saw it in reruns.

I think that is the one where the contractors are asked to show they understanding by copying in crayon?

That mom one is hilarious. (you have to scroll to the bottom of the post to get a link that works)

I had recently joined GW when Marcolo posted his "I poured milk in my salad" thread and knew that I had found a cyber-home.

The "I poured milk in my salad" may be my favourite too. One of the few I had to read immediately to my husband.

I can't find the thread to my favourite line, but the line went something like this: "OMG - Palimpsest is a DUDE???"

I think the "Recognizing Trendy" discussions were great. Not belly-laughing hysterical like "Milk in Salad," but I learned a lot.

califreckles, I'm so glad you found the "Having a baby" thread. I was searching for it too but couldn't remember the exact title.

And then there's the "widget" thread...

Please, do not take offense, we've ALL done these at some time...plus it's all in fun!

Oh my, I needed a good laugh. Love perusing those threads! Though now I want a towel pig...

I'm a bit newer but this somewhat recent thread had me laughing like crazy.

It's nice to take a trip down memory lane and also read some threads that I missed. Buehl, I thought of the widget thread too. It's a good one.

Here's one that's OT, but still funny.

ahhh, widgets. Hysterical. That thread was from late March....how much snow was falling I have to wonder...sounds like a lot of punchy people suffering from cabin fever.

Anybody remember the thread where the poster wanted to strangle her GC (I know, so many of those) but she actually had a screaming match with him, and we all were casting actors who would play them in the movie version of this made for TV movie? I don't want to guess who it was, I have an idea...

OMG - I got as far as the I Poured Milk on My Salad thread and thought I would not recover...so many hilarious tales within the tale (BKW's pouring cat food in the cereal bowl should have had its own thread!). I was amazaed that the milk/salad thread ran only a short 13 days!

If you have pets, you will not be able to stop laughing. It is from the Home Disasters Forum.

Bee: That was me who had the screaming fight with the GC. I can't locate the thread and can't recall who we wound up casting as him...someone sufficiently appealing to reel me in as a customer, but ultimately smarmy. Harvey Keitel? I do recall that I wanted someone like Julia Roberts or Scarlett Johannsen to play me, but sadly had to realize Kathy Bates was more realistic. Even more sadly, the saga isn't over yet.

YES!!! It WAS you! I knew it was a 2 syllable username! lol

I wanted Danny Devito to be the GC.

I just tried to find that thread and I can't. :(

Bee...and it was Danny DeVito, I was remembering as an appropriate person for the GC (assuming I was drunk when I signed the contract with him, that is....)
