Well, folks, I have some bad news to share.

I heard from *Pansy yesterday morning. *She said *she was going to do battle with the April update for the weight loss thread.

*Her exact words were, "We are going riding in a bit and then the challenge "death match to the death" of updating the weight loss thread begins."

As I said, that was yesterday morning. Of course, it couldn't possibly take a full day and night to update the thread. I'm afraid the only reasonable conclusion is that ... well ... *PansyPalmetto didn't come out of the "death match to the death" still alive and well.

Of course, this morning, even with the help of Google, I can't find the weight loss thread, either. It doesn't come as a surprise to any of us who knew *Pansy, however remotely, that *she succeeded in squashing it into oblivion. It wouldn't surprise me if, even with Slantz' help, its earthly remains are never found.

May I suggest that we, here on BikeJournal, use this thread to post our memories of both of them, and take this opportunity to say good bye.

Maybe later, when the shock has worn off, we can discuss a memorial service.

First, a few words about the weight loss thread. Of course, it was started by Maggie many years ago. It was a much loved, much hated part of many BikeJournalists lives. Fear of posting our next months weight kept many a cookie from our lips and hips. Many words of encouragement helped us along and encouraged us on our paths towards sveldt.

And then, less than four months ago, *Pansy took over. (Doesn't *she always?) The words of encouragement dwindled. The Domanitrix style rule of terror began. And we all lost weight.

But the thread fought back. We pesterd. We whined. We posted multiple weights in the same month. It struggled and kicked and wrassled back. And, in the end, incredible as it seems, in its final act, it brought *Pansy down.

It was a brave and useful, if highly annoying thread. And we'll all miss it.




I vote we have a six course meal after the funeral. All six courses should be desert.

Well, it's still there so I'll bump for you so you'll feel bad about that six course meal. Of course that doesn't mean PP will ever get around to updating for Aprils Fool.

And considering that the thread will be replete with Pansy Math, most of what she does update probably won't make sense, be wrong, or subject to misinterpretaton, more likely than not by Pansy herself, eh?

*Pansy. What can one say about her?

*She was a consumate story teller. Who can possibly forget *her story of nursing baby spotted owls to health in lumberjack country. Or the time *her clothes "accidentally came off as *she jumped into a pool beside a waterfall ... and then a group of tourists came along to snap photos? Or ... I could go on with hundreds of wonderful stories *she shared.

*She was a strong woman. Strong enough to crush multiple admirers beneath *her stilletto heels and laugh as they writhed. Strong enough to look on the carnage that resulted when *she shoved anyone in her way off the edge of the cliff, and laugh as she watched them sqirm. Strong enough to loose weight even while on steroid therapy. Strong enough to ride 8,000 miles in a year, and CRUSH RaleighDon while *she's at it, while on chemotherapy and while taking weeks and months off the bike due to surgeries and illnesses.


Cheerleader. Spelling bee champion. ... I'm sorry. I'm getting all choked up. I just can't write any more. (At least not until after work!)

Shoulda title your thread "Loose herself here". Otherwise inspiring. Going out for a ride for now, will log few k on her memory on forthcoming Howard's thread.

SJR: well said man, wisdom speaks. Now what about the red cross ?

Pansy will truly be missed...

...I did not know her well; but, I take great solace in the deeply hidden expressions of endearment y'all have shown Pansy. The expressions are extremely hard to find, and almost appear nonexistent; however, I have found your loving intentions. Does this mean I can eat donuts now?

...and, JB, you killed me with that cheerleader thing. Exactly, who or what did she cheer for? ( I am struggling with the visual). But seriously, I will never forget her. Everytime I ride, and I need to adjust because my seat has caused discomfort to the nether regions...I will remember Pansy. This is too overwhelming, my tears for our loved one will not cease. Peace be with you, Pansy Gyal!

I don't miss her. She banned me once over a donut. It was a tasty donut too. I miss that donut. I have more fond memories of that tasty donut than I do of that Pasty Pansy.

I get the feeling that this thread is like Gilligans funeral. I think Pansy is hiding behind the scenes listening as we eulogize her. Soon she'll fall from the rafters (after losing her grip due to the glaze of a scrumptious donut she's trying to hold on to), and as we come to terms with her crash landing, she will jump up, fix her tutu, and run off the stage only to return, grab that scrumptious donut, and run off again.

I miss you tasty donut
I love you tasty donut

Now I wait for the shriek that momentarily precedes the fall and landing of said Pansy

Too busy riding to post here. Priorities, you know. Besides, I don't think Pansy's dead. I think she's cocooning. But what will she emerge as? ... [shudder] ...

Gbheabas...lol...like I said, it is extremely hard, but, I found your loving intentions in those Pansy remarks. However, you pose a very interesting question: Would one prefer a donut, or Pansy? Since, one cannot have both (because they are in direct conflict)...I will ponder this question.

Some of Pansy's personalities can be amusing...however, a donut always makes me smile. This is tough...I'm beginning to feel you...I do not think donuts enjoy banning people. I must meditate on this question. Is one's worth equal, or lower, than that of a baked good?

I still miss her...oh, it looks like she has returned on the other thread.
