I'm on it, Lala! I might be in my car coming back from the beach but I am up for a party! I have rum, southern comfort, and wine. What would you like? emoticon

The techno is now on the stereo. Don't MAKE ME DANCE ALONE!

Here's a joke for our next party.

I tell you it's rough all over. Money is scarce. My cousin had an exorcism but couldn't afford to pay for it, and they re-possessed her!

Ditto on the video, LADYBUG. "Feeling Good" is a great reminder of what we are achieving and why.

Birds flying high. That would be us, as we think about how our lives are changing for the better.

One example is your new clothes, CATS. I will smile as I envision you feeling good as you decide which things in your closet to donate to others. WooHoo!

Nice party, everyone. Thanks for being here and sharing some of your positive adjectives.

You guys are all "hostesses with the mostest" and it was great to hang out with yinz.
DH and I watched a movie and I listened for "party dings" on my computer. A great relaxing evening. I didn't even "think" about making side trips to the pantry. Can you believe it? Yinz are more fun than food.

Haha! Adventuresome is how my dad described our family because of how much we moved around. We moved from Alaska to Colombia, South America when I was 6 years old. Then, we drove across the country from Miami to Alaska when I was 12, for a summer visit (with 4 kids)...

Several of us may have "adventuresome" and stories to demonstrate our worthiness for it.

It's usually the one parents like to use to let us know we are a handful.

And we thought SUSAN was such an obedient daughter.

I loved the sister comment, LALA.


I can see where "vivacious" is you, LADYB.

The root of that one is what? Life? Living it fully? Anyone know?

Also, SEXY! (Actually, I have never felt sexy, so it isn't RE-claiming as much as just claiming.)

Fizzy and Frothy -- especially at a party like this!!

Okay, Boo, I'll forgive you for the stripper. I guess when the sun goes down, anyone can strip!!!

By the way, English words are funny. Why is a "naturist" actually a "nudist" and not a person who loves nature?

Some of the positive adjectives about ourselves CAN "get lost in a sea of low self-esteem" as the writer states. We can get so wrapped up in the negative adjectives that we forget who we are or who we want to be. Let's see.

I'ma gonna dance the night away! Let me see, where did I put my disco collection? It's been a while since I put my boogie shoes on, but tonight I'll join the fun and go boogie shoe-less. It's easier in the sand anyway.

I am inventing a new adjective for myself, Jol. I am WORTHFUL. :)

I knew I forgot to do something. Sorry, JOL, I got distracted while supervising the truckers who brought in the sand for our virtual beach. Maybe next time.

As soon as the sun goes down, we're planning some fireworks and dancing barefoot in the sand, with candles and tiki lamps flickering. I think you'll enjoy that.

Your participation is definitely a good thing, LADYBUG. Holding down potential zombie savior intimidation among the Oklahoma Sparkies. is a lovely contribution.

I have only met one SparkPerson locally, and she is terriffic. We get together about once a month for lunch or a walk in the park One of my SprarkFriends from Green Bay drove down for a Bucks game and I got to hug her and spend a few minutes chatting. She seems as nice in person as she had been online, as well.

There are so many things that can be better said and understood in person than via a keyboard, even though we do pretty well with the keyboards at SP.

.
EDIT: Sorry I didn't see you over there, FARAWAY. I'm glad you could make it. How nice to have the day off and start your weekend early. Friday nights feel special to me because of the feeling of freedom that they bring. Time to sit back and relax, to recharge our batteries.

There's a little bit of the zombie savior thing going with that team, but I make it pretty clear that they probably don't wanna go there with me! :p I'm open and accepting of all and so hopefully those that might otherwise feel like an outsider won't with me there!!!

Woo hoo, beach par-tay! Shots, shots, shots, shots!!!! I'll have a row of jello shooters please.

Today I got myself a new Sims videogame (Medieval Sims) and a DVD set that I've been wanting for years (Daria from EONS ago) - because I *deserve* to have things and I am *worthy* of being good to myself.

Party on, Wayne!

Doing this from an iPhone is a real pain, CATS.

I have an iPod Touch and I absolutely detest typing with one finger. I was so happy this week when I discovered that Apple's portable wireless keyboard works with my iPod. I think it will with the iPhone, too. When I switch it back to my HP laptop (Windows Vista system), it's easy to pair it, since it's all blue tooth based.

That's great news about the meetings IRL in Oklahoma. Since you are enjoying them, LB, I'm guessing that they are not flaunting the prayer stuff and making anyone like us feel like an outsider. That has happened in some SP groups in the bible belt.

That's awesome! The Tulsa team seems pretty dead, which bums me out. I'd love to have IRL Spark friends. I'll definitely holler if I'm ever heading that way.

Yes, it's right near my house... it's a monstrosity of a thing to be honest. But I definitely wanna get to the Nike outlet. Of course, even if this weekend is tax-free weekend, I still don't think I'm going to brave the grand opening of that place... Too crazy for sure! LOL

If you're ever gonna be in OKC, lemme know and maybe we can meet up for coffee or something. We have a really active OKC Spark Team here. We have Walk & Talks on Saturdays, where we get to meet other members IRL. And we also have special events within the group, like everyone walking in the Komen Race for the Cure or going out to a Redhawks game. I think it's pretty need to have such an active team here.

I believe SP dropped the "real time" chat feature. I haven't seen it in a while, except on Facebook.

The active and inactive subscription list is a good tool, to make sure those notificaiton emails keep coming. When I don't get notifications of a reply to a thread, it's usually because I have made a comment while already on the team page, instead of responding through an email notification. When that happens, I just re-subscribe to the discussion.

You can get notified of "scheduled" events by making appointments to be reminded.

And that's all I know about "birthin' no babies".
I'm a-feared we will have to wait for the emails to tell us that someone wants to party. I just leave the sound on, on my computer. And when I hear a "ding", I check to see if it's a party animal.

I can only answer the first part, because the second part is something I've wondered about too!

If you've clicked to get emailed when there are replies, you will remain subscribed until you get an email and don't click the link. At that point, it's an inactive subscription and you either have to come here and leave a reply and click the box again, or click the subscribe button on the thread.

This page will show you your active and inactive subscriptions www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/m

Am I automatically on the notifications because I checked the "I want an email to be sent to me when anyone replies to this topic?" Or is there something else I need to do?

Computers are glorified word processors to me, so I'm not certain about using them effectively.

Lord knows, I don't want to miss drinks in IV bags or candy stripers/naughty nurses, so clue me in if there is another way to get the notification.

Also, what's the best way to talk in real time? That is, when someone says, "let's party," is it best to hit the reply button from the page itself or to wait for email notifications about every new message? That seems pretty clumsy to me, but again, I don't know nuthin' about birthin' no babies or about the internet.

That's right. The people with such notifications set up can be stand by guardian "angels" (just an expression), like doctors "on call".

We can set up a triage unit with drinks in IV bags and dress up in candy striper outfits or naughty nurse attire.

What do you think?

If they over-indulge, we can throw them in body bags to sleep it off until morning.

I hope a lot of people have notifications set up for the thread. Then if someone comes in and says, "Let's party," or whatever, then whoever can come at that time can respond to that call.

It is DID. Thank you both for your input, SUSAN and DIAMOND.; Yinz are the greatest!

I have sent the following new information to the team:
_______

A suggestion has been made that we allow our Wednesday Wahoo Sessions to ERUPT spontaneously any old day of the the week, the way that “party that started it all” did.

The feedback we’ve received indicates that people have conflicts and feel disloyal for missing the party. Or, they rush home, and are disappointed if there isn’t much happening. The beauty of that first party was that it just HAPPENED and we were in the mood to relax with friends. It’s a jungle out there, and a kindred spirit can be a welcome sight.

SO, we are cancelling the scheduled Wednesday 7pm CST party time and replacing it with something more flexible. The name of the party thread has, therefore, been changed to “Surprise us! Wahoo PARTY & Therapy Session”. I was considering the name, "Floating Crap Game", but didn't like the connotation. It's just a party on "flex-time".

WHEN YOU ARE IN A PARTY MOOD or feel the NEED of an “ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT”, post RIGHT HERE on this thread and we will come running. Be prepared for impromptu parties to ERUPT. Attend when you can. When you can’t, no worries! (All we will do is make a notation of your absence in your "permanent file".)

PARTY TIP---We cannot fake a good time, just by putting on a party hat. We are not “obligated” to “perform”. One of our team mates and I discovered last week that just sitting back and sharing what was on our minds brought us closer. Of course, things that make us laugh ARE always fun. Nothing is off limits. We do not frown upon silliness.

BTW, you males on our team can party with us, too. We don’t have to do sexist things every week. Besides, the male strippers ate most of our pizza when they were here. You can imagine how that disappointed us! Grr!!!

IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE GETTING HERE MORE THAN ONCE A WEEK---you pick your time and some of us will show up to “make party”.

Stay cool,
BOO,
Beloved leader of Separation of Church and Weight

Excellent idea, SUSAN and DIAMOND. The good thing about that first party was that it was spontaneous and we were in the mood to joke around with friends.

Another thing I discovered that feels strange: I think we feel pressure to make an entrance with a bang. One cannot fake a good time, just by putting on a party hat. It it feels like a performance, where we feel "obligated" to make one another laugh, we can feel both disappointed and guilty that we aren't being enough of a party animal.

On Wednesday, as CATS and I relaxed into just talking about what was on our minds, it felt really special. I think it brought us closer.

I'll let the team know they don't have to sweat the time thing. I'm changing the name of the thread to "Surprise us! Wahoo PARTY & Therapy Session".

I was just thinking that same thing! Ya never know when a party could erupt this way. Last week I felt a little stressed trying to get home before the action was over only to find that nothing much was gong on...

I have a suggestion about our Wednesday Wahoo Sessions...let's allow them to spontaneously errupt any old day of they week, the way the first party did.

I'm thinking this way for three reasons: (1) I had to jump off last week to tackle a family issue and felt a bit disloyal for needing to do so; (2) I have a slight conflict this week that may mean I'll miss this Wednesday too; (3) lots of folks couldn't make it last Wednesday, for various reasons.

I guess this sounds funny coming from the team member who first suggested a set date, but we can revise as we learn, right?

What do you think?

Yes, that word, "collision" has taken on new meaning for you.
