The You All Grew Up and Became Boring thread
« on: October 07, 2011, 01:47:14 AM »
YES! I'm looking at all of you!

I was just reading a thread where Cat and Kim were offering kisses and asking guys to form a line, ad then JROC just tried to sneak in a kiss without me or Say knowing he was cheating on us, then Katie walked in and made out with everyone!

wait what?

EXACTLY!

And now you guys grew up and we don't have no more senseless conversations about absolutely nothing that go on forever and ever. It all became serious stuff about the game, and the story, and narrations, and blah blah blah.

I want some of that stuff back. Bring it back!!!!

It's true, you know. The Asylum is under-used these days. :yes: 'Tis a sad. :'(


I propose we use this thread to hold a discussion (and general jesting session*) about the ways in which we all grew up despite our promises to Peter and Never-neverland. :yes: :P


*:that I feel I need to explain this is evidence that we have all grown up--lighthearted poking fun at our "responsibilities" and "adulthood"... discussion of what constitutes growing up or being an adult can go OUTSIDE the Asylum :P

We didn't grow up! XD You just stopped encouraging senseless spam. ::)

And we don't have as many active members and the ones who really contributed to the insanity (The Jaradas, my court, Neil, Say, Kelsey) have kind of all disappeared. :(

Yes, Delling, we're all very "responsible" adults who spend large amounts of our time playing video games. XD

I know I deal with major insanity every day so it never occurred to me to bring some of it here when I signed up.  Well, since it's apparently what Cez wants, I am officially offering kisses.  That is what Cez wanted, right?  Kisses for all, then.

Precisely... :yes: ...if by that you mean we are all emotionally still around the age of five but now people (parents/teachers) can't tell us what to do with our time any more and some of us have to actually feed and clothe ourselves. :o ...and if by responsible, you mean "we have to or otherwise we would die of exposure and starvation", then yes. :P


Now... about this spam we were talking about: once upon a time, in the Land of Asylum, there were two wonderful things--the forum game and the posting spree. We should bring these back... now to bring them back, we will need participants. Time to go find and haul back the oldbies, methinks. That or train up these newbies.

Damar gets it! :D Sorta... :-\ :P

Also, I'd like to point out that I maintain that I have neither grown up nor become boring... just nobody seems all that interested in my insanity. ::) :P

Waging war in the food fight thread... trying to get admitted into the Asylum... getting sued in the Court thread (Reffus!)... Captaining me pirate ship... fun times indeed. I do miss the insanity. :(

In my defense, I was already grown up (well, physically anyway) when I joined. :P The forums certainly have changed, though. :-\

I agree. I've read quite a few older threads, and this forum really died a few months ago. I wouldn't find so much as a new thread each week. And, I haven't seen cookie-sharing posts in months!

*Admits being spanked in conversations with Delling in the past, and offers a cookie to Delling.*

Katie! I didn't know you had an army. Where's your Bunny Army? Is it fighting Cez's Suffer Army on Cupcake Isle, near the Pudding Sea?  :rofl:

Hmm, I think they also at war with someone's killer monkey army. That might've been Cez's! Or maybe Say's?

Yeah, it was a bit of a quiet summer. But we did just post a teaser-y image on the blog! But no one wants to talk about it :(

"I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys' R' Us Kid!"  I never will grow up, I will always have my childish innocence and creativity.  And I'll always love King's Quest.  I remember the insanity. I have limited time on the computer though. Anyone for pumpkin pie for Halloween? It is early though, and most people save the pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. But we could have pumpkin pastries and pumpkin cookies. And there's always Halloween chocolate.....

It really is awful, Cez! I HATE being a grown up! Someone make a de-ageifier! Or, better yet, find someone filthy stinking rich to take care of our "grown up problems" (bills) and let us go crazy. :P

This thread calls for a little Hyperbole and a Half.

OMG I think I wrote that except I'm not as clever. Does that happen to EVERYONE?!?!

I just get stressed and then I have to deal with by tossing myself fully into a fictional world. Since I haven't been getting *any* acting gigs, that means..... video games! Reading til my far-sighted eyes bleed!

And it's been like this since I graduated. Partying with my friends and posting on forums are awesomely fun and I still try to do them but.... I'm *me* when I do them and that's kind of defeating the purpose of being an escapist, isn't it? :P
