Is Ryan feeling OK?

post #1 of 14

<font color=blue>Maybe it's just me, but Ryan's posts of late lean toward the synical and sarcastic . . . . yes, even more than his usual synical and sarcastic self.

i.e. His recent response to "how did you first find epicski.com? http://www.epicski.com/cgi-bin/ultim...c;f=2;t=005050

And there it was, under the decaying bones of some rodent my dog had played with before killing. Luckily the epicski wasn't too scratched up and still worked when I pulled it out of the earth. I'd heard they were well-made and could handle any manner of day-to-day use, but when the music played and the figurines danced, well, I had to subscribe.
I washed it and de-rusted the edges and placed it on my desk, where it sits now as I look at it.
<font color=blue>Why were you digging a hole in your back yard in the first place? Ryan needs to get out of South El Lay; I think the doctor should prescribe some snow for the poor boy. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Ryan is just down 'cause Boston lost to those stinking Yankees. Fear not, his beloved Dullass Cryboys are playing well for that blowhard Big Tuna Parcells. Ryan should be in good humor soon. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

likin' that new blue ink, ain'tcha?

i am fine. "cynical"? "sarcastic"?

would you be willing to entertain "irreverent" in place of the above descriptions? it feels so much closer to the Truth.

as i think AC knows, my response in that thread should not be seen as a disrespectful slight of epic (my home away from home), and definitely not cynical (though i am) or sarcastic (which i can be and absolutely HAVE been). above and beyond those things, though, i am most frequently, and simply, irreverent. and will accept almost any reason to string together a few words, thus a sentence, thereby exercising certain muscles in my head that have been sadly atrophying of late.

thanks for inquiring as to my well-being.

and i assume we will see each other again in jackson hole? I hope so, if only to pick up the Gotamas you owe me - remember? - from our porcupine's bet (you lost) last year.

i found epic web-surfing. (gawd, how pedestrian.)

Damn, those unfinished thoughts that go unnoticed and uncorrected until you click on the post button.

I'm happy to hear you're feeling fine and, yes, irreverant is perfectly acceptable. Now, regarding the Gotamas, I'm afraid I sold them to skieast to help raise money for the short trek to Jackson Hole. It's fun to go fishing, unfortunately sometimes you come home empty handed. Nice try though.

I still think some snow will make it all good.

It's been a tough year for ryan with Kimi and the Chowds going down the tubes. Ski season will probably perk the lad up.

I happen to think ryans post about digging a hole to find EPIC was funny. I even laughted about it last night when I was making coffee. I wish I'd thought of that. If he keeps that kind of entertainment up, he'll be knocking "Fox" off the top of my list.

Yeah, it was an excellent post. I'll be contacting my script writers to find out why I didn't think of it myself.

Don't be confused, I thought Ryan's response was very funny. As was Fox's script-writer response above.

A good power dump - of snow, you potty ... - would do us all a lot of good.
