Atilla, there is NO way you could ever disappoint me. You ALWAYS live up to my expectations.
With any luck there will be an snow and an icestorm. Hey, it delayed the inevitable for the Phillies!
Dozer,

I am always happy to make your day more complete. I hope you having an especially good personal and professional fall season.

Always my best,
Atilla

P.S. Snow and Ice are no deterrents, have to be at least a class 5 natural disaster to make me blink.

I said blink not flinch Dozer. Although interestingly enough i thought of a quick story that you may enjoy.

This summer i watched the SF candidates do some god awful stuff and not even bat an eyelash in pursuit of their tabs. Long movements with no sleep and no food while us G's were snacking on hidden supplies. Covering the watch cause we were to "stupid" to know how after their hellacious infil, which made us all immediately feel sorry for them. Smelling like amonia in the heat as their bodies ate themselves. No complaints, no gripes just a motivated attitude and a desire for their goal. As i said never batted and eyelash just embraced the suck and drove on... that is until the cadre TS decided to make a point to the guys.

He had an order sent down from "higher" stating that all personnel were to have clean shaves and high and tights so as to fit in with the local populace better. I tell you it was the funniest thing i have seen in a long time. They all damn near mutinied right there, they tried to wait him out hoping he wouldn't follow through or would forget about it. No dice, the G chief had me (do to my intimate experience with H&T's) administer said sentence while also instructing us G's to be insulted that the SF team was too good for haircuts like ours (all ROTC cadets). I felt so bad for them but it did reiterate something they eventually realized too. It is just hair and it that is what you have to do to complete the mission that is what you do.

I just thought of that thinking of someone standing in the face of hell and carnage and not batting an eyelash but losing their s*** when high an tights are ordered.

The things we hold onto for comfort, I know this was a bit off topic but I remember we used to be like this with hair too in the Marines, why do people get so attached to hair when they get a little salty, I have been guilty, just funny to me why it is always hair.

Back to HW and PT.

You post and all can hear is a dog whistle.
Proof read.

If you are reduced to telling your best Robin Sage story, we have indeed, sunk to a new low.

TR Sir,

Sorry to disappoint, should have remembered there is no quarter given here but I suppose I'm not asking for any either.

I was trying to share one of my only stories that is pertinent to this site. I am sure I would draw even more fire if I started busting out Marine war stories.

Dozer,

The day I please you is the day the day of the rapture. I took a little literary license and I apologize.

Respectfully,
Atilla

Spare me. Hunter S. Thompson takes literary license. ee cummings takes literary license. One must be capable of stringing words together into intelligent sentences (capitalizing, using proper punctuation, correct spelling, not switching verb tenses) before one can claim literary license. You can't write; and won't even proofread your posts.
Just to be on the safe side, I'm going to switch to Atheism. I would rather be "standing in the face of Hell (capitol letter H) and carnage and not batting an eyelash" at the Rapture (Capitol letter R) then run the risk of being pleased by you.

Is there anyone else who thinks that this "Yo Gabba Gabba It's all about Me, ATILLA! Tee Hee" Thread should be closed?

Yes. It was marginally entertaining, but I have grown weary of it.
Have to sign off now and go down to the Department of Verbiage to get my literary license renewed.

A request from QPs is good enough.

Done.
