unfortunately, Annettes story has taken a very real turn for the worse. Looks like she has lung cancer. She's apparantly refusing chemo or radiation but the doctors have convinced her to sign a medical poa over to her parents due to her "not thinking like she should", so there are probably some capacity issues at work.
Due to the seriousness of this, it just doesnt feel right to continue on with the thread.
Good luck Annette!
The thread is legit, but I have no idea why the link doesnt work. Maybe because we locked the thread? I have no idea honestly.
We started it in May, but had been following her for sometime prior to that on our shoutbox (chat function basically). We thought we were the only ones. Obviously not.
after more reconnaissance, it appears the other lifeform is in its primal stages. a user named casstommy provides all updates to Annette and Chad with limited interest. I don't think they have any idea of (I LOVE YOU) ROBERT KELLY.

A little backstory first...
Annette is our protagonist, a hopeless romantic from a small town in NC. She loves facebook, Bowman Gray racing, her family, and listening to music on youtube and dedicating them to her friends and family.
Then there is her son peewee. He's a racing and goat enthusiast. He's got big dreams of bringing that ol winston cup back to welcome!
Michael is her troubled son. In an out of trouble with the law, he's got a wild streak no one can tame.
Her dad (Pops) is full of timely and insightful advice she will never listen too.
She has a stable of love interests that rotate in and out, most recently being Chad, Sam, and Robert. Chad is up next in the rotation and is her self described "rock", despite only meeting him 4 days ago.
Clearly "Annette" is just some sort of viral marketing campaign dreamed up by the advertising geniuses who work for Big Canned Meat.
I had to be accepted by your mods
except that the post specifically mentions Robert, but whatever. I wonder if someone from this board took it over there or tipped someone off to it.
kickin' the tires
i'm actually casstommy on the niner board. I first learned of Annette through a coworker who had been following her after his nephew, cousin, or something had some sort of run in with one of her clan and it spilled over onto facebook. He was laughing uncontrollably one day at his computer, i stopped over to see what was going on and he showed me her profile. The rest is history.
How did you guys find her?
One of our posters hooked up with her. He first posted about her in our facebook thread 6 months ago.
Yeah, so you niners better back off-- we saw her first!
Early into the sequel and we have already developed our antagonists. Who knew we were going to get in a turf war over Annette?
I think it's good for two groups to study something on their own and then discuss the topic to see if there was something we missed.
Like, what are there thoughts on babies eating chocolate bunnies? 100 year old grandmothers decorated for Halloween? Pee Wee and his hats/goats/affection for Hooters waitresses?
From their point of view, they are just now learning that she was run over. It's like they are watching Star Wars in the original order after we started with episode one.

I wonder if this is the same workplace as Manslow's...
Shane is going to learn sooooooooooooooo much about you.
Except in this scenario, the prequels don't suck.

Thomas Brown: Annette if you inherited a mind from me it was a very small one but you do have a very big heart and we do love you-- dad --
Quite humorous that UNCC is following Annette as well.
I did a little searching (so bored at work today), and I think this pic was JManslow's first Annette related post on pg 16 of the General Facebook Hilarity thread. And the rest, they say, is history.

does the posters coworker work in government?
we're pretty clear on her backstory for the most part. We know about Robert Kelly and still keep tabs on him. We know about Annette being hit by a car by her ex. Pee wee and his goats are probably my favorite character.
When I first discovered her (maybe around March), I poured a shit ton of time reading her back story to the point it started to creep out my wife. For the most part, we just documented the highlights in our thread and did most of the commentary in our shoutbox. You guys have taken it to another level though.
Edit: WTF is wrong with your board? This is some of the glitchiest message board software i've seen

Wow, I just searched "annette" so I didn't get pictures. We've been following this saga for over a year now, wow.
