For those in denial - You DO have PCE

Postby rwhen » Mon Nov 05, 2007 2:32 pm

You know it, you don't admit it, but you know it.

Now is the time to come on out of that little envious emerald closet that you live in and tell the whole world. People have been wondering why you walk about with that greenish cast eminating from your aura.

If you look at your checkbook, all those thousands and thousands of dollars on therapy to get over it, just hasn't helped one bit and hey you could have gone to every moot on the planet for that money.

The personalized license plate "HONK4PCE" is just pathetic. :nono:

Oh and the tell tell sign? "Please pity my low post count. I try so hard."

Listen, it takes effort, loss of family, sleep, job and sanity to get that ring. If you are not up to the task then at least admit it. You are totally screamin' green with envy at those who do.

Oh and yeah, all you "ringers"? BACK OFF BOOGALOO. We see you, all bright and shiny, showin' off to the world. "Look at me, look at me." Pffffft. As if we had any other choice. :roll:

Well here is your chance. It is easy and I will help you along.

Just step up to the mic, take it with confidence, say your name and state your problem.

"Hello, my name is Rwhen and I have POST COUNT ENVY."

This attempt at humor is not directed to anyone high or low, big or small - tall or short, this additive is for political correctness even though I know you ALL suffer this affliction!

Small post count.

Yup I got one. Probably won't ever reach ring bearer status. But thats ok...I've seen what that ring does to those who own it.

I think luthy should envy those of us who are not INSANE.

:P

I haven't checked the 'scoreboard' in months. Best I ever did on there was number 8...I must have dropped down several slots by now.

*checks*

Ah, number ten. Not too bad, although I would like to get ahead of Maeglin. :evil:

Ah Luthy friend, you shame us all with your grace and beauty. Your post count is however, a major sin and you must be eliminated.

:hug:

Ro Ro, you are sane? By whose standards are you judging? Maeglin? The original insane person on these boards...well okay along with Themedes...but just sayin'. ;) And besides, YOU are a ringer. I shall shun you now.

LOL... back in the day when my daily count could compete, that just meant I was much too obsessed. Luthy and others do it so much better. Postcount may be a sin but they're kind and thoughtful. I'll count it as a blessing.


The following is, of course, just a big bundle of hot air meant to disguise the fact that I really do feel I NEED MY PRECIOUS BACK!!!!!

Lives?

Who said anything about lives?

Let me tally this up.

I spent all day today standing on the top of a ladder and turning a crank (really weird job: +1 point). After eleven hours of this I went home and ate some mac and cheese (bachelor food: +5 points). Excitingly enough, there was an aviso in my post box- a package has arrived for me(-2 points). However, there is a model ship building kit in that package (model-building: +10 points.) Now I am up at one am (late night at home, alone: +5 points) writing a Nano novel (online geekism: +4 points) while my cat (lives with cat: +1 point) sleeps on the huge pile of clothes that has somehow accumulated in the middle of my room (uncontrollable mess in apartment:+3 points). I am also writing a post about how I have no life on a Tolkien messageboard (LOTR geek:+10 points)

Oh, and I'm a virgin. (+100 points).

:P

(but just in case you get the wrong idea, I love every bit of my non-life. :D:D:D )

Ah, but I didn't calculate it. The result was pretty clear...:P

Besides, I was never any good at maths. Now, excuse me, I'm going to bed. It's half past one and I need to get up extra early tomorrow to collect my model ship, because I need to be at work by eight thirty to turn that crank some more.

I have PCE!! Can you believe it? :shock: I was the 21st person to get their ring but I am now number 14 on the list of highest post counts. Well I am envious of Luthy cause I wont ever get my second ring but I had a great time getting the first one. :D Being an adopter sure helped with my post count cause I don't agree with those who do the spamming to get where they want to be. :whistle: I don't mind helping them get their count up but I sure wouldn't partake in it. Nope never would! Um.....nope not me!

Hey Hue how we doing hon? Have we got you there yet?? :P Oh wait! Hue isn't posting in here as of yet. Oops!!

Hey Rwhen nice thread you got here dear sweet sister! :hug:

I hope you all know I am just kidding and having fun!

In theory I can do something about post count. There is nothing any of you can do about date joined though.

Now...while my post count isn't quite as pitiful as Durin's, I truly don't think I'll ever break 5000. :roll: Seems I just don't have the time to post a lot anymore. But....I did once...really. :)

PC envy? lol, nope none here, though it did make me wonder just how many post I would have if I'd never used alts for Rp. :whistle:

Adding them all together still doesn't get me to Mariner status. :D

I have PCE, and I'm not afraid to admit it. I've been here over 3 years now, and I still haven't hit Ranger (though I think that's coming soon, with the WCAs. It would be a nice Christmas present... :wink: ) I think when I've been here as long as Durin, I'll probably have a post count something like his, so I don't feel too bad now. I didn't know there was anyone else who posted as little as I do! (Part of it is that I take long breaks from Torc every so often. That doesn't help, I know.) I have no idea where I am on post count rankings (You could even look at that? I didn't know that!), but it's probably pretty low.

Really, though, I'm not that jealous of Luthy, who really can't have much of a life to have that many posts. It's just not human. Or maybe that's just from my really low perspective. In the end, though, I'm content to just help Hue out with his second Run for the Ring (if he ever gets back to it). It helps my post count out a bit and lets me help a good friend who deserves some nice things. Like a big shiny. :wink:

Oh fer the love of Petester... what a bunch of whinin' deniers.

;) :P

And you "ringers" who are posting here...you know you just want the attention. Admit it at least. As if your shiny just isn't enough HANGIN' there for the world to see.

Pfffffffft. Get a life, will ya.

And Gimli and Ro...get a room!! :P

So in six years and 6,000 some posts, I make that around three posts a day. BOOOO YAAAAAAA. But why does it seem like I post so much more than that? I know it is the Time-o-Torcian Machine...you get in and you can't get out...it slows down life while you are on the net so that you THINK you are here posting all day when in reality you have been trapped by the great big TORCie monster of alternating reality. I am Rwhen, no you are not. Yes I am. Uh uh..not even close.

Okay, that feels better. Now for all you NICE people getting off the plane, get off the plane. Oops, that is another joke for another time and place.

Hi Portia. :D

Okay, if you say go to the main page that shows Talk or just any one persons post, like mine and click on my name. When you get the screen that tells about me, there is a place that says "click for all posts made by Rwhen"...and voila..you are diving in the dumpsters before you know it. :D

For yours, just click on your own name and the same appears.

I have spent half days doing this very thing. You find some really good threads that you forgot about. :D

Hope this is helpful.
