FYI- carwashcats

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Carwashcats computer is broken so she might not be on for a while! She used her friends computer today to send me a message saying it could be June before she can get a new one, but hopefully she'll be able to fix hers!
So if you dont talk to Monique for awhile its just because she doesn't have a computer! She said to keep sending her PM's and she'll get to them as soon as she can!!
Thanks

I hope she is able to get her computer as soon as she can. You may want to find out if she is still going to the meetup at the end of the month in Dallas, if it is still going to happen.

I was just thinking the same thing. If no one can contact her via the computer, I have her home address, and could send her snail-mail to find out..

Is there a possibility that it may not occur, due to Lee's illness??

That's what I'm wondering. His well-being comes first and even once he gets home, he will need time to recover.

Well I do have moniques phone number and I could call her to find out if she's going, and if its not happening, I could call her to tell her that too.

Yes, his well-being most definitely comes first, as it should. I'm just wondering b/c my s/o had to request the time off from work to be able to attend the meet-up, and if it's not gonna occur, I need to let him know so he can switch it around..

You might want to call her then, Glitch, to let her know what's going on.. I'm pretty sure she had planned on attending.

Well I don't have the accent, but I've only been living in Texas for six years! I still talk like a "Yankee"! I'll probably be the only person who attends the meet-up who doesn't have a Texas drawl!

I know what you mean, Glitch. I always thought it would be really cool to meet some other TCS members too, but I didn't think it would ever happen!

You just never know: you may get your chance too some day..

Have you ever thought of organizing a meet-up in your own area??

Ok Ya'll!!! I caught ya'll talking about me and my accent!!!! I have been
crackin' up!!! reading this thread!!! Thanks Amber, I
really appreciate you doing this for me! The other night when you called, and left me a message, you know what I told my friend that I was with?....... First, I started listening to my voicemail messages... and to my surprise, all of a sudden it was Amber!!!!!, I told my friend, 'OMG! this one is from my good friend from thecatsite that lives in South Dakota!!!' I was listening and when it was through I said to her,
" That was exactly how I thought she would sound, she has a northern accent and all!" were my exact words!!!! That is so funny! tonight I get on here and I found this thread, and Amber makes the comment about my southern drawl! I too once upon a time, was a yankee, accent and all 'you guys', it wasn't my fault my parents moved me to Texas when I was going into the 4th grade, so it was pretty hard on me, everyone here made fun of
how I talked! and being that young, what can I say, if you can't beat em
Join em'!! I have been here since 74' that is........34 years! You'd talk this way too!! I love it!! we said almost the exact same thing about each other!!!
I love ya Amber! and Tiff!!! and Rigel and Sabrina for caring about me, my computer still isn't fixed totally! but I am online some!!!

well, i don't have a 'texas twang' unless i want to [had one in a show one time - it's easy to put on]. i have more of a general southern accent. probably 'cause my parents aren't from texas, so they don't have one either. they're from louisiana - dad from the north, mom from the south [cajun is another accent i find relatively easy to imitate!].
it really depends on the area you live in - the DFW metroplex is so mixed, you find all kinds.
besides, i'd be willing to bet that Lee's DW doesn't have a texas accent!

"Fuselier" (pronounced- Fuse'-lay or Fuse'-leer) is so common, it would be
like the name Smith here! My dad can cooooook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gumbo, Sauce Picanute', Etouffee'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! your mom too? He will tell ya,
"If he wasn't cajun....... he'd be ashamed!"

Well, I'm happy to hear that I won't be the only one there who doesn't speak with a Texas drawl! Y'all are probably gonna get a big kick out of how I speak -- like Marge in that "Fargo" movie (or so I've been told! ). Yeah, ya betcha!!

Hey Monique! I tried calling you the other day: did you get my message?? I absolutely love YOUR Texas drawl! It's so cute! Are you coming to the meet-up??

Tiff

i've been thru both Oberlin & Eunice many times going down to where mom's family is from!
dad is from Benson [close to Mansfield, which is near Shreveport].
mom is from Hathaway [close to Jennings, which is near Lake Charles]. most of her family lives in Lake Charles, now - but a couple of her siblings are still in Hathaway - & one owns the family home & will be moving there from LC.
oh, yeah - love etouffee, gumbo - my family has a recipe for a crawfish casserole, tho, that's better than either of those!
mom's family is not native Louisianan, tho - so her maiden name isn't French - it's Phenice.

It's not an easy thing to do! I wasn't able to log on this past week, and I was almost to the point where I thought about finding a support group b/c I couldn't get my "fix"!

haha I know how it goes guys! I havn't found much time to be on recently with my DH threatening to divorce me and all! Yeah, he sent his mommy over here to tell me that! But thats a whole new story all together!

I love your accent Monique! I never see myself with an accent but I know I have one too!

Im gonna give you a call tomarrow guys! That way I have someone to talk to about stuff, and you both have been very supportive!

For your computer Monique!! Hehe and at least I talked behind your back right in front of you!! hehe

They were just exaggerating the accents in that movie, Amber. We DO talk like that to some extent, but not necessarily as pronounced. I thought it was rather funny myself!
