Chatroom, Elbows & a Red Footed Booby

So, here’s the thing that just bounced to mind, the sudden, like an olive bouncing from a salad to the floor.

(No one likes olives, aways, see.)

TPL has a chatroom.

An official chatroom! This makes me feel sorta proud, not sure why.

Now, the sad thing is this: TPL has had a chatroom for some time. But I’d forgotten about it. We really must schedule a chat sometime. The difficulty is, see, scheduling a chat that everyone can get in. What with time zone differences and all.

It’s so vexing. Help! I’ve got no idea how to run a chatroom.

In other news, the professor nearly broke his arm.

I probably told you this.

I’m making it sound way more exciting than it really is.

Elbow's are so weak.

Elbow’s are so weak.

Also in the professorish news:

If I was a bird…this would be me, yo:

    I’m dead. Red footed BOOBY!?

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2016 at 12:42

      It’s a real creature, I promise. *laughs* This is one thing you shouldn’t see… *shields Sooch’s eyes*

  2. 3 Brenda Davis Harsham May 5, 2016 at 14:06

    I think he should be called the blue-beaked booby.

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 21:21

      That’s a good one, too. But aren’t those feet just so huge?

      • 5 Brenda Davis Harsham May 6, 2016 at 00:21

        True!

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2016 at 18:38

        False! Sorry, just had to say that.

      • 7 Brenda Davis Harsham May 6, 2016 at 23:05

        Fired. Sorry. Just had the urge.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:35

        *laughing lots* Good urge, I say.

  3. 9 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 2, 2016 at 19:42

    A chat room! TPL really is a great place to be, Duke. Sorry I’ve been away. Hope you have this sorted by now. What time did you decide on, anyway? I’m always aleep after dark, probably.

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:04

      It’s been hard deciding on a time! Time zones are the worst. But I think it might be 10am friday, which might be a bit early for you…? Hoping not. We’ll have others, tho. Now…you were sorta MIA.

      • 11 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2016 at 14:45

        Well, I’m sure I missed the kickoff event by now. *taps toes* I know. I’m completely behind. It isn’t easy, this new job of mine, you see. Been a busy few weeks and I’m soon moving into my new home, so life is crazy. Thanks for being a friend, Duke. My smile is lost somewhere. Find it and mail it back, please and thank you.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:41

        *laughs* Don’t worry! It will all work out in no time. And you’ll be settled and quite spicy. Plus, we’ll be having another chat soon. I’ll pull you in by your ponytail.

      • 13 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2016 at 22:22

        *smirks* In no time, huh? How long is that anyway? Okay, good to know, Sir. By my ponytail?! Ha! Only you are allowed to do so, you know.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke May 10, 2016 at 16:09

        Um…a few months? Maybe? You’ll do excellently. I just know it. Haha. Well, I hope it doesn’t take that!

  4. 15 Nancy Loderick April 29, 2016 at 19:43

    Well Professor,

    You certainly have been busy with thinking your professorish thoughts. Now with this chat room, what would you chat about?

    Nancy

    • 16 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:45

      You know, I’m not sure. It’d be a chance for us to all meet each other. Imagine the fun of that!

      • 17 Nancy Loderick May 3, 2016 at 16:05

        Well Professor,

        Fun doesn’t even begin to describe how awesome it would be to actually meet you. :)

        Nancy

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:16

        It’d be scary, huh?

  5. 19 Lady Dunamis April 29, 2016 at 00:42

    Olives are gross and that bird has really big feet..lol!

    • 20 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:59

      Did you just call me gross and say I had big feet?

      • 21 Lady Dunamis April 29, 2016 at 14:31

        Well, if you associate yourself to be an olive and a bird, then I guess I did. However, you don’t appear to be the self deprecating type. You trouble maker you….

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:39

        *laughs* Hey, I have to pick on you sometimes, you know…

      • 23 Lady Dunamis May 2, 2016 at 16:09

        😀

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 12:59

        *ugly professor face*

  6. 25 Jackie April 28, 2016 at 18:52

    I love olives!

    • 26 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:57

      Green or red ones?

      • 27 Jackie April 29, 2016 at 16:35

        Black ones!

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:42

        Oh yes. They’re the best.

      • 29 Jackie May 2, 2016 at 15:12

        Hey! You made a rhyme. You could make a commercial jingle out of it.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 12:58

        *laughs* Why, looky there! So I did. *very proud*

      • 31 Jackie May 3, 2016 at 13:02

        You are a poet and didn’t even know it.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:06

        I know! And here I always thought I was garbage at it.

      • 33 Jackie May 3, 2016 at 13:36

        Apparently you were mistaken!

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:07

        Now, the professor is only ever mistaken about grass, roots, and seaweed.

      • 35 Jackie May 4, 2016 at 13:10

        Now you can add poetry to that list.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:25

        *laughs* What a funny list it is, too.

      • 37 Jackie May 4, 2016 at 14:21

        It suits you!

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:02

        It does. Sorta like a jacket fits.

      • 39 Jackie May 5, 2016 at 13:05

        Yes exactly!!

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:18

        *tribune thingy*

  7. 41 Haylee April 28, 2016 at 16:28

    Someone was talking about chatrooms the other day and it reminded me you’re supposed to have one (I feel they’re a rarity these days) – maybe you heard the same conversation and this is what prompted the old grey matter! Personally, I’m more of a puffin fan… Will that be your chatroom name? Redfootedboobylover84? :)
    Why don’t you set a date and time window of a few hours for the chat (when you have time to dip in and out) and maybe advertise it as a blog meet and greet? Then you can leave everyone to chat when you need to pop off and reapply the elbow ice pack (hope it’s ok btw).

    • 42 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:55

      That’s a perfect plan! A week from today, I’m thinking. Imagine. That’d be so awesomely cool. The plan is on. You must pop in, too, if you can! Nah, I’ll probably call myself just boring professor. What will yours be?

      Oh, it’s not that bad. But still. I feel it from time to time.

      • 43 Haylee April 29, 2016 at 15:14

        Hmmm… I think AloadaBobbins will be fine. Although I’ve always fancied being called Lucia de Havilland… But I shall be there at some point I’m sure!

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:40

        *laughing* That’s a pretty cool name. I’ve just got to set a time. I know UK is roughly 5 hours ahead of me, I think…

      • 45 Haylee May 2, 2016 at 16:58

        Correct! I shall keep a look out for it going live :)

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:00

        Oh goody. I’m so nervous about it. *retires*

  8. 47 Freakishly Fangirlish April 28, 2016 at 15:55

    I love olives always… must be the Italian in me. Also, I was on the chatroom a while ago (before it was cool you see) and i was so lonely cos no one else was there lol

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:53

      Really! Well, you must come into the tpl one and help me out. I’m so nervous about our first official one, see, and you have previous knowledge of such things.

      • 49 Freakishly Fangirlish April 30, 2016 at 00:16

        Haha okay XD

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:45

        Really? Cool. I’ve got to decide on a time.

      • 51 Freakishly Fangirlish May 2, 2016 at 13:52

        Cool! Just let me know when

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 12:56

        Will do. Might be too early for you. Getting all these time zones to match is madness, I tell you. *storms about and screams at the moon*

      • 53 Freakishly Fangirlish May 3, 2016 at 13:40

        I didn’t know you’re part werewolf! XD
        Haha, yeah, that’s true. Time zones are a pain in the butt haha

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:09

        *laughs* Just part, mind. I think it’s 1030 my time which makes it 830 yours…I think?

      • 55 Freakishly Fangirlish May 4, 2016 at 13:52

        Probably…I think? Idk, I’m bad with time zones… all i know is that we’re central time here haha (also, i will be gone friday and saturday for a performance)

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:00

        Oh, rats. Okay. I’ll just have to schedule another one, is all. Good luck with your performance, tho! Break legs.

      • 57 Freakishly Fangirlish May 5, 2016 at 13:55

        Haha, thanks :P

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 21:20

        I mean, not literally, of course.

  9. 59 desertdweller29 April 28, 2016 at 15:38

    I’d be a blue footed booby. I guess the difference is blue footed boobies like olives. How can you not like olives?! You probably eat macaroni elbows with cheese… Yo.

    • 60 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:51

      Haha. Love the yo. Well, a blue footed booby is really cool, I must admit. Okay, I do like olives. Really. I was just…professoring.

  10. 61 L. Marie April 28, 2016 at 15:10

    If I were a bird, I would be a cardinal! You should be too. You like the color red!

    • 62 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:49

      But…they don’t have red feet, do they?

      • 63 L. Marie May 2, 2016 at 11:54

        Um no. You have me there.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:52

        You know, I don’t think they’ve got any feet, the sudden.

  11. 65 Debbie April 28, 2016 at 14:38

    Nearly broke your arm? Sounds painful, Professor. If you’re that Red-Footed Booby though, would that mean you nearly broke your wing??

    • 66 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:48

      *laughs* Yes, my wing. Goodness. That’d mean I wouldn’t be able to fly again. Rats. I love flying, you should know. Better than running.

  12. 67 FictionFan April 28, 2016 at 14:36

    Good luck with the chatroom – if only the earth was flat, eh?

    • 68 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:48

      I shall pull you in by your beard! What would a TPL chat be without you?!

      • 69 FictionFan April 29, 2016 at 16:30

        Awww, that’s sweet! *smiles* But you’re always trying to drag me onto newfangled places I don’t wanna be. I shall stick to my old-fashioned ways and leave the chatroom to you and your buddies, especially if it requires a FB account… *shudders* Enjoy yourselves!

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:41

        Or a twitter account. *shakes head* Okay, if you insist…still…

  13. 71 Heartafire April 28, 2016 at 14:22

    Your chat rooms not working, is this a trick? :D

    • 72 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:48

      Isn’t it really? I shall schedule a day to get it all together. And hopefully everyone can log in. You might need an FB account, maybe.

      • 73 Heartafire April 29, 2016 at 14:57

        Okay, waiting. :)

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:39

        Or twitter. We’re in the same time zone, so that should be easy, I think.

      • 75 Heartafire May 2, 2016 at 14:05

        yay twitter.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 12:57

        I think I have one.

      • 77 Heartafire May 3, 2016 at 13:26

        I think I do too, but I’ve only used for stalk…following.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:06

        *laughs* Hollie! You’re a stalker. This is just fine, you know.

      • 79 Heartafire May 4, 2016 at 14:55

        Oh, sure, nothing wrong with stalking…I keep telling everybody that.

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:08

        I’m stalked, you know. *hides again*

      • 81 Heartafire May 5, 2016 at 14:29

        You love being stalked! We all do.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 21:24

        Unless Jason is stalking you…

      • 83 Heartafire May 5, 2016 at 22:35

        Thanks for the bad dreams. :/

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2016 at 18:37

        You know, the professor is basically a nightmare.

      • 85 Heartafire May 6, 2016 at 19:51

        No way.

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:32

        *nods* In earnest, in earnest!

      • 87 Heartafire May 9, 2016 at 17:57

        Winks. With both eyes that’s how earnest this is.

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke May 10, 2016 at 16:02

        Nah, that’s not winking! Just…falling asleep.

      • 89 Heartafire May 10, 2016 at 16:19

        you’re on to me.

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke May 11, 2016 at 16:30

        Completely, of course.

  14. 91 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:57

    Okay, that made me laugh out loud. You gotta watch out for weird birds.

    • 92 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:47

      That’s the professor bird. The national professor bird. Now you know. Chickit.

      • 93 Susan P April 30, 2016 at 13:39

        You think you are clever…and you are.

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:47

        I’m as clever as a tree trunk, in truth.

      • 95 Susan P May 3, 2016 at 14:50

        Why>

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:12

        Well…well…what dost thou mean?
