Gail, AKA BlackHeart ,is not now and has never been a nobody.

As a matter of fact, there is a permanent rule that:

No one who is smart enough to find SU is not and never has been a nobody. That may how you viewed yourself at one time or another, but your view of yourself is skewed (no, I spelled it right - skewed not scr...d).

To get a realistic view of yourself, ask any team member through Sparkmail how you are viewed.

We only tease the ones we love.

Well folks my selections have been made. Karenbee10 and Popeyetheturtle have accepted positions as leaders of this fine team. Once Popeye accepts the invite my name will be removed from the leader list.

I will remain on the team as a nobody just like the rest of you.

Oh, I'm sorry that I failed to give Ray my best wishes.

Ray, old buddy, I've had some of those heart troubles. Even after they get you cleaned out you have to be very careful.

Some college football coach had a mild heart attack in the middle of September and had a stent inserted. He was planning on coaching his team from the booth today but had to go back to the hospital because he'd developed a blood clot in his leg. Now they can't predict when he might be out of the hospital and be able to return to work.

Old buddy, what I'm sayin' is that you just take it easy. If you have to have a stent put in, make sure it's one of those old-fashioned drug coated ones. They've been shown to produce better results than most of the new ones on the Cardiologist market.

We'll keep your seat warm, I promise.

One final thing. I know that the heart doctors and the hospital charge an arm and a leg, so I thought I'd send a donation.

The check's in the mail. Honest. Hope I didn't send it to the wrong address.

I'd like to be considered.

That would give me control of three teams on Spark.

Today, Sarcastics Unlimited. Tomorrow, the world!

And that lady about falling asleep in the snow - or something. Doesn't she know you could get dead doing that?

I have heard that your brain freezes first so there isn't really much pain.

Me? I am always a pain, people just aren't sure what part of their anatomy to assign me.

Since I fight dirty, harder and more vicious, I should have at least 51% of the leadership so I can keep everyone under control.

No, Barack has not yet invited me to join his group of Czars, but my home phone is forwarded to my cell. I'm always ready for my Patriotic Duty!

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

not too bad at all --

I am surprised -

Here's the correct poem copied and pasted:

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

I just re-read it -- farmhouse, not framhouse LOL

I type with 2 fingers and make lots of typos but I didn't want to edit it so you wouldn't think I was cheating...

OK, I swear I am doing this from memory --


Stopping By Woods On a Snowy Evening, by Robert Frost

Who's woods these are I think I know
His house is in the village, though
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think to queer
To stop without a framhouse near
Between the wood and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake
The only sound the tinkling (something-or-other)
Of (dum di dum) and downy flake

The woods are lovely dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
and miles to go before I sleep
and miles to go before I sleep.


I haven't tried that for years -- I used to entertain my kiddies by reciting it once in awhile, but I guess all that ginseng and other stuff I take for the old memory ain't workin' so good -- I am going to look it up now and see how I did -- I have a sneaking suspicion I missed a whole stanza between the last two...

Don't worry Gail, I am not power hungry, just bored....

I thought of what I wanna do as my acceptance speech -- I could recite a poem I memorized in 6th grade and still remember -- "Stopping By Woods On a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost --

You guys wanna hear it?

You want me to give a speech?

Ok--

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears...

no, no, that's no good --

how about --

Fourscore and seven years ago, our fathers did something-or-other that I can't quite remember at the moment --

no, can't remember all the words to that one --

I know, I know --

Ask not what your leader can do for you, but what you can do for your leader.

Yah, that's it --

Now what? Do I make a thread telling everyone how wonderful I am? Or what an honor it is to be chosen, and how I am humbled beyond words that I was deemed worthy, and that I would do my utmost to live up to the faith that you all have in me? (gag, gag, choke, choke...)

Or maybe not....maybe I'll just keep posting as I have been because this is my favorite group....

What a leader does:

Be active (this is the most important thing)

Be encouraging (Yeah, I know this is Sarcastics Unlimited but we still give support when it's needed)

Create weight loss challenges (Ok, this is totally optional. I've typically ran this team as a place for folks to get away from it all and have fun.)

Read member blogs. This is something I have always enjoyed but just don't have time for anymore.

And just, well, be active, keep the threads going or occasionally create new threads to keep it fresh. However, members have created some pretty neat thread here so I've not worried about that too much.

As you may or may not have noticed, Joyrider is no longer a leader of this fine team. I知 sorry to see this as she was a great leader. Kinda. Snark, snark,

But now I知 calling on the rest of you for help. I too need to step down as leader and would like to bring on at least 2 active members to take over. Three or four would be better for a team of this size.

What this team needs is someone who is active on a regular basis; meaning if not daily then at least weekly. Please let me know if you are interested and I can make you a leader.
