We saw this in a parking lot of a hotel. We thought it was a neat storage container.

Possibly, depending on being able to reserve accommodations. We will see.

That is awesome!

I agree, tctrojan! Too bad the only one I seemed to be able to play most confidently was the one about the singers and their songs.

By the way, I must be missing something. I'm not sure I understand what you mean about that picture of the car being towed as a 'storage container'. I wouldn't trust leaving that car in just any parking lot. It's a sad world we live in where inconsiderate vandals like to mess things up just because they can.

Well, I can imagine them.

Not so sure I'd be so good at actually having one in real life. I never know how to coordinate all the moving parts... Decor, guests, seating, centerpieces, food variety, drinks, party favors, music or other entertainment. I was always on our school's 'social committee' and helped to plan our after-work staff gatherings, but I worked with a team. It was easy when we each took up one aspect of it, but to do it all alone would be impossible for me. I've realized that I most enjoyed teaching and working on things with a team.

I tried. I told myself not to come back to this thread. No one has added any posts since Trojan and Mrs. Lilbit added theirs. I couldn't even let a month pass by.

Yet, here I am again with nothing to say.

So maybe I'll be THE thread killer if no one else comes back because they have more sense than I do.

Summer school started this week (yes, I am a glutton for punishment). Monday was like all of my back-to-school nightmares come true. Showed up at school Monday morning with no class roster, no schedule, and no curriculum. I was literally handed it all at 7:30 that morning. Spent the entire day making it up as I go along.

Each day goes smoother than the day before. Fortunately, most of my kids are pretty sweet. Thank goodness tomorrow is payday and I will be reminded why I agreed to do this.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Someone (maybe Hifiman?) brought up Thread Killer threads on the Teacher's Lounge board. I'm not going to mention this thread in particular, since I don't want it to be 'over-flooded' with visitors and suddenly get cancelled by site management. On the other hand, if anyone does a search and happens to discover our quiet little corner here...

tctrojan, I don't know about that. I think you are the thread king/queen/royalty if you post and no one dares response. you rule the thread all by your lonesome! Seems pretty powerful to me...

I always forget about this thread until it shows up in my search (I was actually searching for a post I recently saw about The Four Winds book, and this was the first hit ). I don't know how to bookmark things. I just look at recent posts only. I enjoyed the party for tc, though! Nice hosting, Risa

Since I was late, though, I partied all alone...

Hey, Grace! Hope your 'party of one' isn't over yet! I'm bringing in a grill so we can have more food for the others who stop by!

Of course, we can always enjoy some summer PT treats so here are a few more options: YUM! MMMM. My fave!

So thanks for stopping by, Grace! Enjoy the treats!

Cheers... to more visitors on our 'thread killer thread' about 'nothing' in the middle of summer!

Now we can have a great party for any others who come by!
Come on in and leave a message or two!

P.S. tctrojan-I'm still trying to come up with a name for a post with '0' replies... (I've had my fair share of those, too!) but nothing comes to mind...

Hi Everyone! Just suddenly decided to come visit this thread to see who has been trying to keep it alive.

So tctrojan and Mrs. Lilbit are trying to offer it a few more breaths of air. (Mrs. Lilbit, I hope your school year is a good one, this year!)

I’ll leave the fan on to circulate the air in here.

I wonder if this thread will lie dormant or if it will come back to life? Only time will tell…

Your comment made me giggle, tctrojan!!

This thread has lately had such minimal activity that a few posts are now a ‘flurry of activity’!

I wonder how long it will be until the next ‘flurry’ occurs??
I’ll be watching!

P.S. A special thanks to PoohBear for all the treats! Very generous! Yum!!

McFlurry assignment
Old 10-02-2021, 07:16 PM
  #641

Hi Fiona! YES! That would be ME!
Me! Me! Me! I said it!

Now you made me realize I haven't had one since back in the summer when you mentioned having liked the ... (hmmm... can't seem to remember the name... Oh! something with brownies...) ... was it the Caramel Brownie McFlurry? Or the Brownie Caramel McFlurry?

I wonder if they now have a Pumpkin Spice or Pumpkin Pie McFlury??

Hey! I've got a great idea!
Maybe you can take that on as an assignment and report back here to the infamous Thread Killer Thread!

Orrrr... better yet...
The FIRST 1,000 PT members who visit this thread within the month of October can go out on assignment and check out their favorite McFlurry! Then they can come back here to tell us about it! (See what you inspired, tctrojan? Woohooo!)

(Although... Now I'm guessing that not everyone is going to be in the mood for ice cream in October, even though, here in SoCal, our temps are still in the 90's...)

Hmmm.... Well, then.
Go out and try your favorite McDonald's sweet treat and report back.
But remember it's only for the first 1,000 PT members who come to this thread in October!

Come on in! 2 down, 998 to go!

Yayyyyyyy!!
Two of you have accepted the assignment, now there are only 998 spaces left for… hmmm?…. for what?? *I go back to read the ‘terms and conditions’… so, blah, blah…. Yada, yada… McFlurry something…. Report… 1,000…* OK! Got it! So where was I??
Oh! So there are only 998 spaces left for PT reporters to check out their favorite McDonald’s treat and report back with their findings before the month of October is over.

C’mon folks! Jump on in! Let’s see if we can revive the ol’ Thread Killer Thread that Fiona started so many months ago!

Fries are only $1.00 on Sunday, so that is my go to order. The chocolate chips cookies are good, especially if you ask for them fresh. ( I only had a dollar with me today)

Money saving thread, too!

Did’ja catch that, folks?
Not only is this a thread about ‘nothing’ but you also get exciting ‘non-sponsored’ tips about useful apps and money-saving opportunities!

You say things are costing more these days? You can’t even go out for a simple treat, anymore?

Well, with only a dollar in your pocket, and an app on your phone, tctrojan, our money-saving guru has verified with her own tried-and-true experience that those days of worry and woe are behind you! (If you’re a fan McDonald’s fries, of course!)

So jump in and share YOUR favorite money saving tip!

I have no money-saving tips, other than not to stop at McDonald’s. We can’t even get coffee there for $1 any more.

I hear you loud and clear! I don't actually go to McDonald's often enough to download the app. But, I clearly recall when I went in one late morning to get something quick because it was turning out to be a busy day full of errands and I hadn't had breakfast, I was shocked, first, at how small the bread/buns had gotten. (Just about small enough to fit in one palm!) AND it seemed the price was up about $2 more than I remembered paying. I mean, I know prices go up eventually but it seems they shot up like a rocket in the past couple years.



Aww, gee, Fiona! Now I'm upset about high prices, not only for fast food costs but also the sky high prices in the grocery stores. How can I be the cheerful greeter to our countless disguised fans, unrevealed friends and incognito readers when I'm worried about rising prices??!!

I may just have to cash out one of my money market savings accounts to go buy a McDonald's hot fudge sundae or some other sweet treat I shouldn't be eating! Are those still a dollar or have they gone up, too?? (Yeah, food costs go sky high, but money market rates stay down low...)

Okay, okay! Enough pouting! I'll get back to my happy place with some healthier watermelon and get back to being the self-appointed greeter to anyone who'd like to join our thread about 'nothing'... and any other topic that comes along.

P.S. tctrojan and Fiona, You know you're just encouraging all these silly rants with your replies, don't you? Heehee!

Street tacos used be TWO for a dollar a few years back. I remember ordering some and being surprised that I got TWO of them! Now I'm just surprised when they're only a dollar! They sure sound yummy, tho!

Edited to add: Now about eating tongue... I've done it, but I can't let myself think about the physical tongue.

They are only $1.00 on Taco Tuesday. They have other "exotic" meats. I will have to go again and report back. Nothing I wanted to try.

Looks like we are our only hope for this thread. Not even TEN of the THOUSAND recommended reporters checked in! Oh, well... We'll just keep on keepin' on until more discover we're still here!

I don't blame you for not trying some of the more exotic meats, tctrojan. They can be pretty intimidating!

Ice cream happy thoughts year round!
Old 10-07-2021, 09:23 PM

I like the way you think, Fiona! But I'd also add watermelon!
I keep forgetting summer is over, so I'm still craving watermelon... not pumpkin spice.

It used to be that once school started, I was in 'fall mode' all the way! Now that I'm not teaching anymore, I'm still in 'summer'! (But, oh! We did have pounding rain and lightning storms the other night. It has cooled down considerably. I guess I'd better get ready for some pumpkin spice, after all)

Good thing ice cream and popcorn are year-round favorites, as well!

Can you believe it? I’ve never been a fan of watermelon, not even when I was a kid. And I could never get the hang of spitting the seeds. My cousins could make them fly across the back yard, but my feeble attempts usually dropped just beyond my feet.

So, TK peeps...were you a champion watermelon seed spitter? What cool things were you able to do as a kid?

Watermelonless

FionaJ!!!! What???!!! You don’t like watermelon??!! Oh no! I’m crushed!! What is happening in this world?? I thought EVERYBODY loved watermelon!!

I should have realized it’s not for everyone. Now I know better… *walking away as I kick the rocks out of my path and I contemplate this new harsh reality…*

Ohhh!! On the bright side… More for me!

As for spitting seeds, they always annoyed me to no end, so I just got rid of them and continued gobbling up the juicy goodness! (My mouth is watering just thinking about another slice! Yum!) I’m glad the seedless variety is out there for me!

Cool things

I was not a watermelon seed spitter.

I could hula hoop with the best of them. I won a hula hoop contest at a bar once and got a free drink.

I was a good climber. My playpen had mesh sides. I could climb out so my mother would put me down and put it over me upside down.

I could get to the top of the rope in PE class. It was about the only thing I was good at in that class. I was called a Jewish monkey after one climb.

I could also pogo stick pretty well.

tctrojan, you had all sorts of cool skills! I’ve never even seen a pogo stick up close. I was really good in gym class but only climbed to the top of the rope once. I bet you could cartwheel too! That was something I tried and tried but never got the hang of. I could barely even somersault.

I was good at what we called the frog stand, and most of my classmates couldn’t do that.

I liked to ride my bike with no hands. And of course there was no such thing as a bicycle helmet then. The things we did....

My rope climbing skills were unconventional. I have a high instep, and would put the rope between my feet and pull my body up. I don't think I have the upper body strength to pull myself up today.

I may be the Thread Killer on this one
Old 11-13-2021, 12:59 PM

Now that I don't see the my bookmarked threads on the PT Home Page anymore, I don't know if anyone has added to this thread since Mrs.Lilbit, FionaJ and tctrojan left their posts about a month ago.
(I had to do a search for 'Thread Killer" and finally found it.)

So....

I just thought I'd add to this thread.

I wonder if anyone will come back to it?

Hello to anyone who navigates their way back here!!

Wow! What a surprise! I didn't expect to see anyone back on this thread for at least several weeks! I really thought I might be THE Thread Killer since we can't see our bookmarks on the home page, anymore!

So, Linda, (if you come back) I'm wondering how you even thought to come back to this thread. Do you have a way of seeing who has posted to the threads you've posted on? I've just been basically sticking to the Teacher's Lounge so I can easily check my previous posts.

So welcome back to this thread! Hope others will also start returning, not only to this thread, but also to PT!

So it's New Year's Eve... and like so many other parts of ProTeacher, this thread has definitely come to a crawl. Thanks to FionaJ for starting this thread so long ago, and thanks to all who posted to keep this thread going. I had lots of fun here!
Who knows? Maybe we'll revive this thread in the future?!

In the meantime, HAPPY NEW YEAR in 2022!
