Since some here at VB have been calling each other on the phone to talk, this thread will be for reporting on who you talk to. I'll start (in order)....<br><br><br><br>
Marie: I've talked to her a lot. She loves to impersonate my accent and pick on the way I say things. I *try* to impersonate her and fail, but do pick on the way she says things (scowl).<br><br><br><br>
MoonDansyr: It's been awhile since I talked to her on the phone, but I remember her southern-accented voice.<br><br><br><br>
ceryna: I talked to her last night and had a wonderful talk (about veg*nism, computers, VB, public transport.....). I'd say her voice is a "cute southern twang" (not strong, but it reminded me a little of MoonDansyr's).<br><br><br><br>
ETA: When I called ceryna I was nervous (I am always worried about not understanding accents) and said who I was even though she knew who was calling...... and we found out we both used to have an Apple 2C!

Okay...<br><br><br><br>
I've talked to Kurmudgeon. He always says "I dunno!" That must be his catch phrase.<br><br><br><br>
I've also talked to MoonDansyr, Robert, Vegan Cannibal and Giancoli.<br><br><br><br>
If anyone wants to call or be called... I'm up for it. I like talking to online people. It's fun.

I haven't spoken with anyone here. I like communicating via internet. I don't know what I'd talk about on the phone and I don't like my voice.

I think sometimes, it can be weird talking to strangers; often there isn't to much to really say. Not really knowing someone creates awkward silences- and I hate that-but I'm open and friendly to give it a shot!- My digits are posted somewhere on this site- feel free!

I've only talked to two people on VB and they are both people I've known since before VB so they don't really count. Other than that I've only given my number to one other person but they haven't called me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Shame on you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I don't really see much point in talking to someone on the phone unless you plan on meeting someday.

Kurm did not sound like Crocodile Dundee. XD<br><br><br><br>
It was really cool to hear what he sounded like, as I'd been very curious. It was a really fun conversation, although I was nervous at first and I think I babbled a little. ^^;;<br><br><br><br>
Plus, someone else who remembered Lemonade Stand on the little green and black Apple 2c monitor...how cool! *g*<br><br><br><br>
I've also spoken to Verbivore, and that was great. ^_^ We talked about American Idol and Clay Fandom, and how we wanted to hold up our bright neon "Aiken 4 Clay" signs, and a lot of other things, too. She has a really pretty voice. ^_^<br><br><br><br>
Next project: Get Michael On The Phone.<br><br><br><br>
Michael, don't make me pull out the picture of the Cutest Dog On Earth and use Supa Kawaii powers on you. *g*

I just called ObsidianZebra ... It seemed like a bad connection.<br><br><br><br>
She was all quiet and I made fun of Michael. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Groovy.

yeah.. i couldn't hear you very well at all, Marie - it was breaking up a lot. and I had the initial shock of the fact that someone actually did call <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Michael is very much weird... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I talked to her last week. It was funny to hear somebody say "VeggieBoards" out loud. Until now I've thought of VB as a strictly-online thing. But I enjoyed talking to her and hearing that "cute southern twang." ^___^<br><br><br><br>
ETA ceryna is ear delicious!

At my work (Cingular's rebate centre) I talk to people from all over the USA- the Accents of people in the south are AWSOME- when ever I see a zipcode that starts with a "7" I know the call is going to be extra interesting- I absolutely love talking to older black ladies who call me "sugar" and "hon (ey)"<br><br>
- I remember talking to one lady for 30 minutes about comercialism and the book diet for a small planet- I'm supposed to keep my calls as short as possible, sometimes its really hard!<br><br>
anyway- again I lost what my point was-oh well!

I've only talked to one VB member on the phone. I think we all know who that is <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
And she has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:">

i like talking online because you have more time to think about what to say. just in general i dont say much unless someone asks, i think i feel that others dont really care so i dont share it. its wierd, i'll tell ya whatever you want but i wont start it. and onl the phone its the same way.

And who on earth could that be?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
And Gazumpy's the only VB person with whom I have spoken on the phone from VB, and we speak quite often. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I've spoken to another online friend before, but only once, and her accent was just like mine. Gazumpy's accent, on the other hand...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

I haven't talked on the phone with anyone here. I'm shy, so when talking on the phone I'm really quite and don't say much. Friends have always said when on the phone, "talk" or "are you still there?"!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I havent talked to any VBers, well, majake but that doesnt really count. Hi majake <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br>
i dont like talking on the phone, with my friends its just enough to say where, what, and when. Relatives are an exception since they are far away <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> sometimes new friends take it personal till they get to know wonderful me and see im like that with everyone.
