Well it's been quite a while since we have had ish but I think it was a much needed break. Hopefully we can have fun today and start a new ish without the bickering and the fighting. For quite awhile now some of us have managed to do just that with morningstar Mondays, but there are alot of us now that are tired of Morningstar for several reasons. None of them have anything to do with the group of friends that attend. I hope that the successes we've had on Morningstar Mondays can now follow to ish on Wednesdays. And especially now since quite a few of us can drive now. That helps Shaun and I out alot. So invite all the old ishers (and even some new ones from Morningstar Mondays) and head on down to Lamar Park.
What: Ish 3 year anniversary/reunion
Where: Lamar Park Porter St. off of Byron Center in Wyoming
When: 3pm TODAY
What to bring: You don't nessescarily have to bring anything. Just bring any snacks or drinks that you think people might like. That would be really helpful.
If you are thinking you might want to attend but don't have a ride or have questions on if you're invited (if this is the dfa post, chances are, you're invited) please call me at (616) 406-7574. kthxBYEEE
random DFA upate. what are we doing for ish this week? I think we need to utilize this community again. So what should we do??????????????????????????? Assuming that I dont work this wednesday. I think Dustin wants to go. We should do something fun.
What can we do? Go to Nicks? Go to someone elses house? Eat cheese?
Think of all those old Ishers, the old masters who paved the way for Ish today. There's the old Ishers, known only by the old Ishers that are still here. Those people were respected members of Ish. Some announced that they were leaving. Some simply disappeared. Most have reappeared for an instant in some time, after months of not coming, only to disappear once again. What of them? I guess they did what can rationally be expected of a person. They moved on in life. They found other things to do. They got busy or lost interest. Some, perhaps, lost access completely, for whatever reason. Some, perhaps, even disappeared due to death. All these things could have happened to those old attendees. It can only be expected. Something like that will happen to each of us, too. Ish won't be around forever. And we won't all post here forever. We won't all go to Ish and hang out forever. We won't be compelled to participate in this community for all the days we live. Someday, sooner or later, probably sooner, each of us will move on too.
After considering the frequency of "fake" departures of Ish vets, compared to the frequency of real ones, probability is not in favor of Ashlee (or anyone else who has left recently) returning. Maybe Ashlee will become like those old Ishers, merely a name that was once used by an attendee of Ish, a person who gained quite a bit of popularity while he was around, until that popularity was rudely interrupted... interrupted by life, or the continuance of life. Interrupted by the natural progression that's bound to strike each of us and pluck us away from this community, one by one.
"Ashlee". What is in that name? Who will remember it? Alas, the memory will remain in each of us, as old Ishers leave and new Ishers take their place... as we leave and new Ishers take our place. And when we leave, who will remember that name? No one, except perhaps, Ashlee herself. Or perhaps she herself will forget the name. It will become just another 6-character sequence, lost in jumbles of text, lost in terrabytes of electrical pulses, lost in the unbounded span of time. Even the names of the old Ishers may soon be reaching this status, the final stage for a name: meaninglessness.
Ashlee, it's been sad to see you go, and it's quite unfortunate that you have left. The circle of life has taken its toll; it's your turn to depart from this community we've come to cherish. The time has come for your name to begin on the road to nothingness, on the downfall to destruction, on the plunge to the abyss. Soon your name will join so many others in the sea of forgotten names, names that once had meaning, representing respect and status so many Ishers once had. No one now knows those names or that respect, the respect among Ish friends, building up Ish-relationships and gaining Ish-respect through so many Ish-conversations! It's time for you to abandon the world that is Ish, leaving behind all the people, all the people that desperately worship you because of your niceness and helpfulness and text-knowledge. It's time for you to say goodbye to Ish. No more Ish! Oh, how so much meaning is in the text on our monitors, but that text fades away, and with it that meaning, until no meaning remains. So go ahead, leave. Leave the text. You've had enough of reading the text, the letters. You've had enough of looking at those pixels on that screen, those pixels that somehow represent people half a world away sitting at their own screen, pushing some buttons on a keyboard, telling their browser to tell their computer to tell Livejournal to tell your computer to tell your browser to tell your monitor to tell you that you are liked and worshiped by some people you knew and may never know again.
Go, go, go. So your time has come. So be it. Someday we'll all follow you.
since i'm in town this week, i wouldn't mind going to ish, if someone just picks me up.
but i WOULD like to go to javasphere tonight around 8pm or so for open mic. would anyone else go? i was there last week. i probably could've gone to ish, but i never know what's going on anymore. so, uh, just pick me up, mmkay?
so far it's looking like ish will START at bad guys around 3pm. i dunno if shaun can make it right then, but most people can just make it there on their own two feet or four wheels.
any park people who feel like going can hang out at my house for the half an hour or so between school and ish.
and if we have to wait for shaun or jason but get kicked out for not buying food or something like that, then we can just call to let them know where we'll be.
oh, and it's been decided almost unanimously: shaun is a sexy beast. perfect 10. way to go, shaun!
that being said,
how hot is nathew?
Mean: 4.86 Median: 2 Std. Dev 3.91
how hot is darren?
Mean: 2.29 Median: 1 Std. Dev 3.15
how hot is jason?
Mean: 3.57 Median: 1 Std. Dev 3.54
how hot is tom?
Mean: 5.71 Median: 5 Std. Dev 3.69
how hot is matt?
Mean: 4.86 Median: 5 Std. Dev 3.76
how hot is scott?
Mean: 2.86 Median: 1 Std. Dev 3.04
i dont know if i will be able to go to ish tomorrow or not.
so dont count on me for a ride to or fro.
if i do go, i will be late (hopefully 6-6:30)
and i will be leaving early cause i have hwk and studying to do.
ill call shaun's cell for the 411
home skillit - small fry
okay, i'm not really jealous or anything, it was random.
but anyway, please take this poll so there is no confusion as to when/where ish will be.
i think making bad guys a permanent starting place wouldn't be a bad idea. i should've made that a question in the poll. if you guys think it's a bad idea, then, no problem, it's a bad idea and i'd like to hear YOU PEOPLE come up with ideas, something you're capable of but NEVER do. i mean, coming up with a better plan is MUCH more better than complaining, right?
anyway, if anyone is mad at me, or thinks i'm trying to "control" or "take over" ish, you have to calm down a bit, because i'm only doing what i do to get some organization in here and vanquish the confusion and laziness that overcomes us constantly. nobody is making us do something we don't want to do. that being said, i'll take a look at the poll results and post something tomorrow, possibly before noon if i can, so we can know where we're going and when.
have at it, kids:
how's about we meet in bad guys and decide where to go from there?
AW, HELLS NAW!!!!
on a scale of 1 to 10, how sexy is shaun?
Mean: 8.83 Median: 10 Std. Dev 2.61
hmm, so what would people want to do with ish?
i was thinking meet at bad guys and then decide where to go from there.
maybe mall? maybe noshville? maybe craig's cruisers (although it'd be best if we say that ahead of time so people can gather their $15 and be merry)?
so let's just say bad guys to start, and then we'll figure it out.
question is: what time?
3:00 or 3:30 like usual, or 5:30 or so like recently?
