    I am MORE THAN...

    I had a day-dream where there was an ad campaign for Cyburbia. It featured Cyburbians claiming to be "more than" something, to be "Cyburbia".

    It started while I was thinking about Stroskey's shoes...

    " I am more than my fabulous taste in shoes, I am Cyburbia."

    and moved on from there to my own...

    " I am more than this big sexy hair, I am Cyburbia."

    Now, YOU pick the cyburbian, you pick their prominent feature, and amuse me endlessly, please. Feel free to do your own or someone elses, I'm not fussy, just easily entertained.

    Completely borrowed and butchered:

    "You are not your job.
    You are not how much you have in the bank.
    You are not the contents of your wallet.
    You are not your khakis.
    You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.

    What happens first is you can't sleep.
    What happens then is there's a gun in your mouth.
    And what happens next is you meet Dan.
    Let me tell you about Dan.
    He had a plan.
    In Dan we trusted.
    Dan says the things you own, end up owning you.
    It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything.
    Cyburbia represents that kind of freedom."

    "I am more than the guy who starts 90% of the polls, I am Cyburbia"

    or

    "I am more than that annoying mod who creates new threads from posts people clearly didn't intend to be threads, I am Cyburbia"
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I am a fringe element drawn, nay thrown, into the stream, or the deep end of the pool, by virtue of having related certs (building inspection) and having to perform "other duties as assigned (zoning admin)", who looks to this forum for practical advice on how to get her done. I have found it an invaluable resource and appreciate the membership. I am Cyburbia.

    I am more than a wife whose hubby takes bikini pics of teenagers while I'm trudging to the ladies room at the beach. I'm not sure if I'm Cyburbia, though; anyone else deal with this aberration?
