I hope none of you darlings have read that drivel the spoiled fruit of my loins has foisted on my public. Mommy Dearest redux. Needless to say we aren't speaking. At least in this lifetime. I simply do not understand why she refuses to accept her earthly limitations.
The central revelation in the book is truly shocking and I could not get through it fast enough.
Care to spoil us, R1?
I would but its so scandalous that I really don't want to spoil it. You can probably find a spoiler nonlinear but I recommend you read it. I promise you that you will never look at Shirley the same afterwards. Anyone else here read it? I'm still shocked I tell you. Shocked!!!!
Online. Not nonlinear haha
Oh, just tell us. I'm never going to buy the book anyway.
Basically...her "father" was a con man who convinced shirl he was a government clone from outer space and Shirley sent him 60k a month for 30 years while charging her daughter interest on a $500 used car loan. Major cunt who sabotaged her only child at every turn.
I am heartbroken over this piece of fiction sez shirley dearest. Pick it up...highly recommended
I FEEELLL YOU REEEEEEAAAAAAAAADDDDDING!
Oh, come on, R1. Spill. I'm not going to actually read this thing.
Take this gun and give my daughter the shot!!
Imagine, keeping a man you don't even live with!
Dolly & Oprah
Shirley comes off as a mix of Aurora Greenway and Atilla the Hun. Her cruelty towards her only daughter is both shocking and scriptworthy. I'm sure the rights have been bought already because this is sensational stuff. But who will play Shirl?
Don't look at me.

Wasn't that a movie with Kevin James and Will Smith?

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
