We need one. For morale and stuff.

This week is Dixie Daredevil, because he/she joined the group on my birthday. He/she (this is what you get for not specifying gender in your profile) will be my favourite until Sunday night, when maddog will pick a group member to be his favourite for the week. We'll alternate.

This group member won't be made admin or anything but we'll stick up for them against the rest of you, no matter how ridiculous they are (well maybe it matters a little bit) and maybe make a rule just for them. This rule will, of course, be deleted as soon as they go back to being a normal weakling like the rest of you.

Their own special rule will be preserved forever in a special locked rule thread, though, for posterity. And eventually, hopefully, unless the world come to an end, eventually you'll all have had one.

so then, you and maddog are the employERS and the rest are employEES, yeah?

cuz i was going to suggest you betsy, for doing an outstanding jorb.
delicious aloysius 12 years ago
i'm sorry.

i lost myself there for a second.

i forgot to eat breakfast and....just...sorry.

i think it was in the context of employer/employee. see, i've got a lot of the rage in me right now at work. it's mad powerful.

i bow to your magnificence.

**regrets starting this thread**

really it was just another way of continuing to make a fuss of my birthday even though it was over a week ago now.

But you all know you're going to be employees of the week long before the 170 or so members that never say a fricking word, right?
betsymartian 12 years ago
um, OK, so I don't actually recall Dixie Daredevil saying anything, but maybe this will bring shim out of shis shell.

Do you remember me telling you I wanted to lick your strawberry? Do you???
betsymartian 12 years ago
shortlist, steve, you're right on there, I promise!
betsymartian 12 years ago
OK maybe this wasn't such a good idea... how about employee of the day, how's that hitting you? then you can all be my favourites before Monday, is that OK?
betsymartian 12 years ago
I'm going to have a hot bath. I promise to think long and hard about what I've done.

delicious aloysius 12 years ago
don't make us fight for your favour.

bloodshed will surely follow.
betsymartian 12 years ago
that's not what I was going for at all :(

it was my attempt at a version of maddog's "meet the crew" thread, hoping to give you all a week each of feeling special.

I suppose maddog's the one with the people skills.

I'm just the one that can count.

I'd try harder....but, why ruin a good thing.
smiling picture [deleted] 12 years ago
You like me! You really like me!

I'd like the thank the Anal Dictator Academy for selecting me as the Employee of the Weak.

What? Oh, Week.

I'm sorry...my misunderstanding.

Nevermind.
various zoo [deleted] 12 years ago
I'm "intrigued" by Dixie's other groups and list of contacts.

*wonders what this has to do with this thread*

happy birthday, betsy.
betsymartian 12 years ago
Um, you can be Employee of the Weak if you want, that would of course turn the whole thing on its head and you'd have to be the skivvy for the other 180 or so members all week...

I am, however, very impressed that we coaxed a quiet 'un into participation. :D
betsymartian 12 years ago
ahhhhh, now I see, you must be one of the people that found this group cos it's got Anal in the title.

see maddog, I told you that would happen.
smiling picture [deleted] 12 years ago
Actually, the word "Administration" was the attraction, but I can understand your interpretation as well. (Some people just have their mind in the gutter...tsk...tsk.)

Whiteleaf PRO 12 years ago
i feel that the almighty betsy has done a great thing here, and we should all be grateful for her merely enlightening our lives with her etheral presence.

is that the kinda thing you're after? i can do that, i'd rather stick to offensive comments and cock jokes? there are many many rules, i got lost.

ALL HAIL THE EYE OF TRUTH AND LIBRARY PRIVILEGES... BETSY!

oh... MADDOG THE MAGNIFICENT too!

Employee of the Week should include admin rights.

will anyone second the motion?

I told her I wanted to lick her strawberry and look what it got me.

We could all say something nice about the "Employee of the Weak or Week". That's how we do it in 2nd grade with the "Student of the Week". Not that I am saying this group is like 2nd grade...the latter being far more mature.

I'd like to contribute to this discussion, but I'm too distracted by trying to figure out how I can help Aloysius.
smiling picture [deleted] 12 years ago
A parking spot up front would be nice...of course a car to put in the spot would be nice too. But I'm not too picky.
Whiteleaf PRO 12 years ago
a mug with "world's greatest mum!" on it would be nice... maybe not for this but it would be good all the same

So, Betsy, I'm in the final days/hours of my reign as Employee of the Weak. Have you decided upon a proper and fitting award for me to display? Or, do you just want to gift me a Pro account and be done with the whole gosh-darn thing?

DD - done.

my comment was funnier if you didnt post yours right as i was typing mine.

so delete yours now so i sound funny.
betsymartian 12 years ago
well I'm not paying for your Pro account Dixie, no protege of mine will grow up not knowing the value of money.

You have your very own rule already. I bet these slack bastards haven't even been playing the game, how many people have favourited your shots in the last couple of days?

I'm still the damn Employee of the Weak!

I think we should do European of the Week....and yeah, the Brits will be included in that for breadth. I guess the group doesn't translate well.

I'm thinking... Kiwi of the Week? After I boot Ice out... and Fras, and any others.

I think in honor of betsy's new screen name, we should all choose a new name with a "." in front of it.

We are lemmings, dear--we'd follow you off that cliff and back again!
