There are certain dates that remain forever embedded in one's memory. They are usually days marked with happiness, sadness, ecstasy, exhilaration, inspiration, sorrow, regret, excitement, rapture, lament or just plain stupidity.
Tomorrow will be the 4th anniversary of my install of PCLinuxOS and my first experience with Linux. I believe I could apply each of the markers to my experiences of the past four years. The deciding factor of how I felt was usually determined by what was going on in the Sandbox at the time.
Happiness in Sandbox = meme happy
Sorrow in Sandbox = meme sad
Stupidity in Sandbox = well you get the idea
Several months ago I was cleaning out files and folders. I am sure most everyone knows what a job that is. Where does this go? Do I still want that? Better keep this...just in case. I usually end up with a bigger mess. Anything that doesn't have a place goes into the Miscellaneous Folder.
I was rereading some text files that made me laugh and get nostalgic. The files were some of the poems I had written and posted in the forum for the past few years. I thought of the situations that went with them and of the members that inspired the rhyme. I have never posted a rhyme in the forum just for the sake of posting a rhyme. Something or somebody always triggered me. I just can't throw away those files as the memories are too precious.
I decided to put all the rhymes I could find into a pfd so that I could have them and read them years from now when Forum Days are over.
I have put them in my Drop Box if anyone would like to have. You might find your name in some of them. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14152380/Rhymes/ms_memes-poems-of-rhyme-and-reason-Vol-I.pdfhttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/14152380/Rhymes/ms_memes-poems-of-rhyme-and-reason-Vol-2.pdf
