I will never be able to say there's nothing to do at my work. paul-mccartney I wish I could just sit and read books at work like some people think librarians do all the time.

Yep! I live on the east coast. I hate it! ahdn_ringo_09  

Yes, indeed. It’s always been a dream of mine to visit some place  else, some place like England or New Zealand. PS I live on the west coast. It’s rather nice over here, however it certainly does rain quite a bit, but when it rains and shines, it’s just a state of mind! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

Yay, a fellow West Coaster! I agree about the weather, although we have been having a surprisingly non-rainy December. I happen to love rain... as long as I don't have to leave the house. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I have decided that, for the first time in almost a year, I will replace my current lock screen with a Beatle photo. This will be new for me, as my lock screen has always always been a picture of one of my pets. So I went to settings and set a lock screen and it was zoomed in and fuzzy and it looked horrible and I couldn't fix it. None of the Beatles pics I have are the right format. a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

On a side note, it has begun to rain... just in time for PE blue-meanie

I thought I'd make this PSA for the new folks on the Forum. If this forum gets a glitch and goes down, we have a backup forum where we can converse. It's how we keep in touch if we can't make posts on this forum. Go ahead and bookmark it so you can find it if/when you need it.

http://thefourmofbeatles.freeforums.net

We have @Starr Shine? to thank for coming up with this idea.

I took some quizzes to cheer myself up:

https://www.playbuzz.com/matts.....h-beatle 

https://www.playbuzz.com/selen.....-submarine

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 These two were kind of laughably easy.

https://www.playbuzz.com/thehu.....-super-fan

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 This one was decent. I got 9/13.

https://www.playbuzz.com/eliza.....-observant

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 This one was quite fun. I got 11/11 but the questions were actually interesting.

https://www.playbuzz.com/joeco.....the-lyrics

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I used to take quizzes like this 24/7 until they got too easy. The problem with this one is that the picture they used in the background was one with Jimmy Nicol instead of Ringo... Ringo I Need You a-hard-days-night-paul-10

https://www.playbuzz.com/kater.....he-beatles

This wasn't a quiz but it describes me very well. I wish I could figure out how to contact whoever made it and show them our marvelous Forum... they'd fit right in! a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

https://www.sporcle.com/games/.....thebeatles

I got 186/225. Warning: this quiz includes ALL of Yellow Submarine , and also the German singles... a-hard-days-night-paul-4

 

https://www.sporcle.com/games/.....thebeatles

I got 99% : all the words except "style."

 

https://www.sporcle.com/games/.....thebeatles

This one is fun, and it has great George representation, which I greatly appreciate.

Love one another.

Indeed. Only one of my friends in real life (then again, nothing is real!) is a fellow fan. However, I am trying to introduce another friend of mine to the best band on the planet. Then I can talk Beatley topics with them all day long and they will understand what I’m talking about.

That sounds delightful. I'm just lucky I have Forumpool, or else I have lost my mind by now (aka everything, because it's all in the mind).

I wrote “Love Is All You Need!” on the whiteboard in my history class before leaving, because I know that my history teacher is a fan (she has an Abbey Road poster in her classroom) so hopefully she’ll recognize my handwriting and get the message. Beatlemaniacs Unite!

This is the kind of thing I was talking about... "My history teacher likes the Beatles!" My history teacher likes Bruce Springsteen and the LA Dodgers. a-hard-days-night-paul-3 You have all the luck... a-hard-days-night-paul-10mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Okay, who decided it would be a good idea to make teenagers take seven huge tests covering half a year of material (for seven classes that makes three and a half years) in one week?

Whoever it is, they deserve to be locked in a tiny room and forced to listen to Revolution 9 , Wild Honey Pie , side one of the wedding album, and the thirty-second blurb at the end of A Day In The Life all played at the same time on loop for the remainder of their existence.

IIRC @50yearslate the vonbontees are brothers.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Haha there are 'biblers who haven't posted since 2014 who could tell the story, I've relayed it so many times. I created the first account at home, then a coupla weeks later I NEEDED to post something from the office and couldn't recall my generated password so I just made a new account. When I made the avatars, I decided to commemorate the work/home origin story with two different outfits, even though I've never worn a tie for work. Since then I've given them equal time, even after leaving the office. Only on infrequent occasions (like when I'm "of two minds" about a posting) will I use them both as part of a larger dialogue. tldr  

 

... am I misunderstanding something here?

@Dark Overlord they're the same person. 

 

Ugh it happened again... I missed the signatures a couple of posts up so I didn't realise it was a triple post for a while. I guess it's because I'm not used to seeing double postsmccartney-shrug_01_gif

Oh god sorry I need to stop with the multiple posts... a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Or I could just choose a really unique avatar. But I heart 1964 George so on the other hand maybe not a-hard-days-night-george-10
