That’s right!!

I know, that joke has been around since the Doctor Who TV show started in the early 1960s. I used to like it when I was a kid – I think it is the first knock knock I heard.

I’m sorry, I have no idea what’s going on in this thread any more. It seems to veer between banality and incomprehensibility. Can someone explain why it shouldn’t be folded into the impossible-to-derail thread?

@Joe It’s just a thread where HKL and I have a bit of fun with folks on the forum. Keeping it here keeps these discussions in the one place and means people can avoid the odd bit of romance if they so choose.

It shouldn’t be folded because then the timings won’t work and the impossible-to-derail thread will become a jumbled mess.

Yeah, I get that. I’m just wondering why there’s a thread for this at all. Why play it out in public when email and PMs are a thing? If every couple on this forum had their own dedicated love-in thread it would make the forum totally unusable (and I’d probably end up closing all non-Beatles discussions).

Perhaps it’s just me who’s not a fan of this thread. I kind of assumed it would burn out, but we’re 19 pages in and counting…

The reason I mentioned impossible-to-derail was because it was set up for this very reason. We were getting a lot of one-off discussions or random bits and pieces that didn’t go anywhere, and it made sense to have them in a continuous space instead. Can we close this and you use that instead?

Maybe we could just have an interview thread since that is one of the more inclusive uses for this thread then lock this one.

We have this: https://www.beatlesbible.com/f…..-you-dare/

Plus the introduce-yourself thread, the getting-to-know-BBers thread, the 9 random facts thread, plus dozens of other what’s-your-favourite-x threads, all spread across All Together Now. Do we really need another one?

I realise this whole exchange makes me sound incredibly grumpy. I’m not, honestly, but I do think this is worth discussing. I bear trc and HKL no ill will.

@HongKongLady, I didnt start the thread, i just moved it to the right sub-forum.

As Joe said there are plenty of threads that cover interviewing folk, getting to know people, chatting about general stuff etc so there is no need to create a new interview thread.

*pre-recorded applause coming from a smartphone speaker*

*stepping swaggeringly into the spotlight that somehow keeps missing him*

Thank you, thank you for the invitation! I Want To Tell You , I’m glad I made it in time, give or take–

     Hello mr.Getting Better welcome to the real one, thank you for guesting here, You know what?

Why, I know who he is, do you? ;)

I like your name milo, its sounds sweet and yummy its my favorite brand name of the chocolate drink I really like it–

Wow, I didn’t know they brand chocolate drink with my name. So far, I saw our own local cigarette and matches wholesaler company Milo, and winter wardrobe brand, I think, also Milo. So now it became edible, eh? I hope it’s easily digested.

I think you’re a sweet person too, I like your(ehemmm) I won’t tell you its my secret, Do You Want To Know A Secret ?

ahdn_ringo_09I’m blushing! You surely know how to push my buttons– a secret? Certainly! As long as it’s not my glasses. If it’s my glasses, sorry, but you can’t have’em. a-hard-days-night-george-10

But before that here’s my questions for you, ,,,,

1.why they called easter egg?

I recall asking myself that one as well when I was learning English, and from what I recall it had something to do with fertility, as in, find eggs and you should be rewarded with many children. And the name itself seems to derive from a Germanic divinity of spring, or light, or was it both, called Eostre, well, I think. I also remember something about a connection with Ishtar instead, but I think it’s *all* connected. 

Why didn’t *you* call him?

 

2.Who is your favorite Beatles? 

Tricky! 

But, George. Both of them. The one with the guitar, for the wit and the compositions and the guitar and his mysterious backing vocal parts. The Beatles wouldn’t have had those harmonies without him, among other things. And the sound engineer (sounds so humble for what he is), for what he’s done for those four lads. They wouldn’t have had that sound without him. And his piano parts! And the Yellow Submarine orchestration! I admire the man. He’s a Metabeatle for me.

3. What is your ambition? 

To be the way that I’m meant to be. No small feat, mind you. I’m ever getting there, ever getting better, or so I hope.

4.why you joined BB?

It might sound cheesy and somehow self-centered or it’s just my insecurity talking, but I felt I needed a challenging community to try and connect to. Make no mistake, people, you *are* challenging. 

5.what year and date John Lennon died?

No he didn’t. 

Oh well, since I’ve already riddled my answers with ‘I Me Mine ‘, I’ll just follow the stream and say, he never died in my view. Again, cheesy stuff, but I feel that his (and theirs) legacy is what keeps them alive and will yet for a long time. Look at the contemporary fanbase. Look at when these fans were born. It’s so great to have them in such numbers. 

That’s all my questions Mr.Getting Better , just take your time to answer all the questions and Good luck!!!!!

Again, thank you for the invitation @HongKongLady ! I hope my answers are bearable… a-hard-days-night-george-4

 

Have a wonderful Time Of Day Of Your Time Zone, everyone! See you somewhere else around here :)

So @Joe or one of the other mods, are we closing this topic? HKL has asked me a few times and we would just like to know – we don’t mind either way.

I was hoping it would just peter our rather than lock it. I’m sorry, I probably didn’t handle this very well. I didn’t mean to upset anyone, I’d just prefer to have these sorts of discussions in one of the general ATN threads.
