As some of you already know, I am a Hubber and proud of it. What that means, for those of you who aren?t aware, I am an active member of Hubpages. You know, that site with all the informative articles, interesting videos, and pretty pictures. They also have a cool forum that has been running a thread lately that is bound to break any existing records anywhere. It is up to 192 pages at the time of this writing, and I for one, have been neglecting my craft and subjecting myself to this Death By Forum.
Does that sound evil? Well, it has its moments, but mostly it has a cast of characters that contribute to the addictiveness of the thread called, ?Last One To Post Wins?.
There?s me, of course, Shirley Anderson. I add the wit, insults, and duh! moments to an otherwise intelligent discourse.
Compu-Smart, who is Mr. Furry Pants to those in the know. This cat is as mysterious as they come. No one has ever seen him, no one knows his name. He pops in and out, and is one of my biggest supporters for the title.
SirDent, otherwise known as Mr. Pokey Pants because he?s always poking people (me) in the ribs. Poor dear is a frustrated competitor with a Darth Vader complex. He doesn?t stand a chance, really. If you happen to join the thread, please be gentle, he?s sensitive.
RMR, or MRM if you happen to consistently get it backwards like I do. If you run into him, call him Mr.Evil Pants. This is a vicious competitor who is not afraid of using tough tactics to win. If you should happen to encounter this one, throw him a butter tart, it just might save you.
DrummerBoy, aka Shane. Very nice, friendly competitor, new kid on the block. You have to watch out for the quiet ones. Before you know it, their pleasantries have added up and put them into a position that is threatening to my keeping the lead.
Speaking of quiet ones, there?s Bob. Gardener and stew maker extraordinaire. Little, unobtrusive sentences that distract you from the fact that he?s had last post a ton of times.
WeddingConsultant, or Peter as we call him in the Hubpages community, is an all around great guy who sort of referees us, and is also one of my loyal supporters, and a new daddy.
Can?t forget about Ruthie17, who?s strategy is mostly comprised of groan-able jokes meant to make the rest of us go away and leave her in the last post spot. Not gonna happen Ruthie, but please keep trying.
There are SO many more competing in the thread, but these characters are the ones that are likely still going to be battling it out twenty years from now. Unless they all let me win, of course.
