My thousandth post

Well, it happened. I am just a couple posts away from the big 1000. Kinda like turning 30. Or 40...or 50...whatever. So, from what I understand here on the forum, it is a kind of a right of passage, or whatever. OK, so I see many forum veterans here with multiple thousands, but somehow the 1000 mark seems to be the most celebrated.

So, with my few remaining posts before crossing the threshold, with my hundreds of posts documenting my various crisis and dilemmas over the years of which many of you have commiserated with me including whether to buy a house or not, unemployment, the quest for brown sugar, pro and cons of KFC, emotional affairs, plus and minuses of living in CH vs. the USA, with a fair share of thanks, and not a few groans...and actually only attending one EF event....I challenge you to make me cross the 1000 mark.

I will now sit back and play hard to get. I dare you to provoke me to cross the line!!

Ya, well I was relegated here by the new powers to be. This forum is no longer what it was since the takeover. We are no longer in control here, LiB.

That's right Karl, maybe we should get together and form our own independent forum for English speakers in Switzerland....wait

On a more serious notes, I sometimes miss our endless daily banter on "Backwards Switzerland"....boy, we sure had a hell lot of free time on hand.

Re: My thousandth post

Congratulations: Its actually pretty interesting to consider the number of posts. I saw a comment there from Odile with 5000 posts and thats since September 2010, just 15 months. Wow. I feel like a mute!

I wonder who the most talkative or prolific posters are?

Well, what do you say, for old times sake, let's start the old rivalry again. It kept the masses entertained, and our new forum "overlords" seem to like the entertainment.

OK, you know what? America SUX. Switzerland RULES.

Yep, DB, Nil, LiB, Unlce Max and Wollishofner are all very talkative indeed.
