[COUNTDOWN] let's get >>1000 on the 10000th day of this month (1000)

gIt always seems impossible until it is doneh

701 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:24

Late nights are just too comfy.

702 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:24

This thread has literally just become me posting my current thought.

703 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:25

In fact, these posts would fit better in the "post your current thought" thread than 90% of the posts that actually are there.

704 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:26

It's basically just the casual chat thread, rather than really about posting what you're thinking about right at that moment.

705 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:26

That's not a criticism, just an observation.

706 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:26

gotta make do with what we have

707 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:27

From reading some of the old instalments of that thread, I think it had left its stated purpose by about the second or third thread anyway.

708 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:27

getting up piss early is still very nice, but it can never beat staying up until 4

709 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:27

A casual chat thread is probably more good for the community than a thread full of disjointed passing thoughts, anyway.

710 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:28

I've seen text/imageboards that are literally nothing but casual chatting of that sort.

711 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:29

There don't seem to be as many cute little messageboard communities as there were...

712 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:29

And the ones that are still here, tend to not have the same feeling about them any more.

713 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:29

Sic transit, and all that, I guess.

714 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:29

Maybe it's just my imagination.

715 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:30

Perhaps they are out there, but I just haven't kept up with the new ones.

716 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:30

That's very possible.

717 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:30

Perhaps there are actually really nice little online communities in places I wouldn't expect, or would never check.

718 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:31

Who knows, maybe there's a perfect little subreddit that I'd enjoy and feel right at home in?

719 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:31

But I'll never know, because I simply don't go there.

720 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:32

Gosh, it's gotten noticeably darker outside since I started posting.

721 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:32

There's always something melancholy about the sky at dusk...

722 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:33

The warm glow of sunlight is ebbing away, but the stars haven't yet come out.

723 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:33

And there's the realisation that the day is ending, and you have less and less time remaining to do anything.

724 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:34

Once it's actually dark, different times all look the same, it's just the clock that changes.

725 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:34

So, I guess sunset is the biggest visual indication of the day ending.

726 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:35

I missed my chance to go for a walk while it was still light...

727 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:35

Well, there's always tomorrow.

728 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:35

There's still today, if I want.

729 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:35

I didn't go for a walk yesterday, so I probably should.

730 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:36

For quite a while, I was in the habit of going for a walk every day.

731 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:36

In fact, my commute to work used to be walking for half an hour each way through meadows and parkland.

732 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:37

It sucked in winter, as everything was damp and muddy, but it was lovely in summer.

733 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:37

Are you supposed to capitalise the names of seasons?

734 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:37

I can never remember.

735 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:38

I feel like you should, because you capitalise the names of months, weekdays, etc.

736 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:38

But I have a feeling I looked it up and you actually aren't supposed to...

737 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:39

Yeah, I just looked it up now, and I was right.

738 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:39

I wonder why?

739 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:39

I guess you don't capitalise times of day, like dawn or dusk.

740 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:40

But then why do we capitalise the names of months, and days of the week?

741 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:40

Weird.

742 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:41

I've been going a while, now...

743 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:41

I think almost all of the last eighty posts were mine.

744 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:41

Maybe I'll try and get us to >>800 and then give it a rest.

745 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:42

Remember the previous versions of this thread?

746 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:42

Gosh, there were some really fun ones.

747 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:42

I think the >>700 on the 7000th one was my favourite.

748 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:42

There were plenty of fun moments in the others too, though.

749 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:43

I should go back and reread those.

750 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:43

I guess now's the time for it, right?

751 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:43

Just go back and marathon the last few threads, as celebration.

752 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:44

I mean "now" as in today or tomorrow, not as in right now.

753 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:44

I wonder if anyone is actually reading this.

754 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:44

If so, sorry for being so boring.

755 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:44

There must be a thousand more interesting things I could be posting about right now.

756 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:45

Uh...

757 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:45

Something interesting, something interesting...

758 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:45

Nothing really happens in my life any more.

759 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:46

I guess I've gotten into drawing a little recently? That's something.

760 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:46

I pretty much only do line art.

761 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:46

(Is that the right term?)

762 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:47

I'm also extremely colourblind, so I don't really like working with colours.

763 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:47

I've tried before, and I just end up painting the sky lilac or something.

764 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:47

That can be nice, but may also not be what I was going for.

765 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:48

I'd rather have more control over the art I make.

766 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:48

I should do more drawing.

767 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:48

Until now, I've almost always done drawing from references.

768 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:49

It's probably time I branched out into doing stuff from my imagination.

769 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:49

I've done it once or twice, and the results have been pretty good.

770 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:50

I never really learned perspective or anatomy stuff, I just have an eye for what looks right and what doesn't.

771 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:50

Perhaps I should look into those more seriously before trying anything.

772 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:50

Or perhaps not. The best way to learn is by doing, and all that.

773 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:51

I've had a few ideas of things I'd like to draw.

774 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:51

I guess I just need to sit down and actually do it.

775 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:51

Perhaps I'll try and do something tonight.

776 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:52

Perhaps not, I did have other plans for tonight...

777 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:52

Eh, whatever.

778 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:52

Wow, I really am just cranking these posts out, huh.

779 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:53

I feel like I should do/say something special for the big numbers, like >>777, given that that's kind of the whole point of this thread.

780 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:53

I don't know what, though.

781 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:54

And I've usually already thought of what I'm about to post next when I realise I'm about to get to one of them.

782 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:54

Okay, well now's my chance.

783 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:54

>>800 is coming up in just a few posts.

784 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:54

I should decide in advance what I'm going to post then.

785 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:55

(Assuming someone else doesn't steal it from under me).

786 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:55

Maybe just "800 GET"?

787 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:55

Nah, way too boring.

788 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:55

I'll do it!

789 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:55

Maybe something in the vein of previous big numbers?

790 Name: vc: reploff : 1993-09-9999 16:56

Funny captcha

791 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:56

Like, some form of Gomez?

792 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:56

I mean, I could just stop posting at >>799 and let someone else do it.

793 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:56

On-schedule Gomez?

794 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:56

Maybe I should? I've only got eight posts left (seven after this one) and still have no idea what to post.

795 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:57

Maybe I'm overthinking this.

796 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:57

It should be something spontaneous, sincere, and unplanned.

797 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:57

I can do that, right?

798 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:58

Well I guess not, if I just spent twenty posts trying to plan it and make it as unspontaneous as possible.

799 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:58

Oh no, it's right here!

800 Name: ( ´_ゝ`) : 1993-09-9999 16:59

Fuck.
