Loss of Streak Celebration
Hey everyone! I lost my streak today!
I am extremely happy and excited in regards to this new development. I've been trying to lose it for months now, and I finally forgot to log on long enough for it to disappear! Woohoo!!! :-D
I think I got to Day 125 in this streak. Not too shabby!
Please, come celebrate with me in this joyous occasion. Leave a comment, a picture... anything you want. Lingots will be served as refreshments during the party.
Thank you all, and enjoy the day!
I mean that the green owl is greedy. It puts a lot of stock in pixelated symbols and arbitrary numbers next to flags. What matters is using the language in your daily life. Finding the people who speak that language and connecting to their culture. It's about being a good neighbor. The owl will never understand that because it lives on the internet and spams our emails...
I'd never thought about it that way until now.
I lost a streak of 535 days when I went to Cuba.
But in Cuba I spoke lots and lots of Spanish and managed to communicate with people and deal with various situations that came up for me and my travelling companions.
Surely that's worth more than any streak? :-)
MMMM.mmmmm....that sounds amazing. Look at this one... http://s9.favim.com/orig/130718/birthday-cup-dessert-party-strawberry-sweet-pink-cake-Favim.com-787069.jpg
Oh, that is wonderful that you have a fresh start now! I can't seem to keep a decent streak anymore, but I suppose it's not that bad. Well, let the party begin...!
Umm... Ok, then! Uh, happy celebration...... This doesn't happen every day..... Uh, congratulations on this sad (or happy, in your case) occasion. Oh, CharmingTiger! I'm just SOOO happy for you! Just think, YOU just LOST around 125 days of hard work! Come on, every body! Lets throw a party! Boy, you're just plain old funny. :D Take some lingots. P.S.- I don't need any lingots.
Update: I just woke up from a nap. I have a terrible headache today that just won't go away.... but in the meantime, I am so very very very happy that everyone is having fun at this party.
Thank you all for your nice comments and your entertaining/delicious pictures. I'm going to go lay back down for a bit, but I just wanted to tell you all how wonderful you are.
Thank you again.
You will go far in this life (& any others) with your beat up attitude. I mean your upbeat attitude. I notice that my own compulsive nature is starting to rear its ugly head over this 'streak' business--this is NOT good for me. I used to be compulsive about getting all As in school & not whether I learned anything. Once I chilled out & dared to be mediocre, even to fail, I became a lot more creative & adventurous. I discovered I loved math & art & quantum physics & many other subjects I'd never explored. Seriously, thanks a lot for this party! I really WAS on the verge of getting too hung up on the numbers next to my symbols. Heck, I nearly joined a "Streak Team Competition." Screw that. Life is too short. I don't need the stress. OK, I'm gonna go mingle with the other party-people, enjoy their pictures & just hang out & be cool. May I 'friend' you & follow you? I like your healthy outlook! L&K, MaryB
Might I just commend your upbeat attitude? Great job on losing the streak! Amazing job! lol A little unusual, but great just the same....Proud of you, tiger! Would you like Leo to give you some champagne? For the occasion, of course...... Want some fireworks? Maybe some cakes to go with that? or
Thanks, Soapie! :-D
That cake looks InSaNe.... not sure if cake or miniature candy store. :O
And whatever that thing is below - a cookie sandwich, perhaps? - well now, like that greedy little girl Veruca Salt sings in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory....
Don't - care - how - I want it nowwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!! (proceeds to fall down the chute under the Golden Goose egg weighing machine)
The lovely Anise' response: "Good heavens - that was one bad egg!" hahahaha
Oh and p.s. - I'm good on the champagne dear.... I see Leo over in the corner talking to Odelia.... there seems to be a lot of blushing and swooning going on on her part :-)
Laughs Congratulations on the loss. ;P 125 is a very respectable number. :D http://reactiongif.org/wp-content/uploads/GIF/2015/02/Cheers-Congrats-Congratulations-Gatsby-Leonardo-Di-Caprio-GIF.gif
My sincerest apologies Ev, I forgot to bring enough, so sadly only Leo could have some. But I just ran to the store, and got some more...along with some more beautiful chocolate cake. xD Here you are... ;) http://www.trade-scoop.com/image/wooden-wine-tray.jpg
Haha! I think that us lingot - aires should make a club for people who have over a hundred lingots. Then we could just flash our club name and say something like, "Excuse me, I'm in the (whatever) club, and you can't give me lingots." Maybe we could also give lingots to the poor souls asking around in the forum. (Anonomously, of course) What do you think?
@SilverCharacter - I think that is a great idea! It seems that the people here have been very generous and donated hundreds of their own lingots to people.
Thank you for your gifts, anonymous donors! And yes, I think that these lingot gifts are best served to those who are just starting to build their lingot cache, so be sure to give some to others, especially those new to the community.
Just think - a gift of 50 or 100 lingots to a newbie is like receiving a gold mine to them. Spread the joy!
Have a great day guys. ✌
