I was wondering about a poster, and how they have posted in the past. Don't know why I care, but was wondering. I used the tool here that let's you know everything a poster has written. Pick out just one person, and guess what they complain about everything. Not just here, but in other areas too. I am glad I am happy go lucky. I would hate life, if all I had to do was complain. Some people should get a life!

Luanne, I agree with you 100 percent, but, then, we both live in Texas where people are friendly and the climate is always perfect.

My motto has always been "Live and let live and you will live longer!"

Paul, This Texas Heat has finally gone to your brain. It's not perfect, but you know what, we can always find something to laugh about it. I like to do a reality check every once in a while, to see if what I am doing is good for others or making them feel bad.

Luanne, dont even go down that road regarding previous views posted from others and how they think,,,its a no winner or brainer

I have had some of my best responses and debates with some no longer posting here and I nearly went with them.

Take it for what it is, throw away internet comment and written in that split second in time. Dont try to read too much into it, unless its sound advice.

Well that's how I now work,,,it's not worth going deeper. Hey its the internet

Sorry, but that avator is actually a guy called Gregor Fisher playing a character called Rab C Nisbett, look it up.

I am actually uglier with less teeth and shorter hair

De-lurking for a mo--back at work and little time to fritter away--to say: What a relief! You might be grumpy but that pic was just creepy, second only to Banker's hideously grinning demon. I was so glad when he changed that thing! (And, Banker, Pleeeeese don't put it back just to be ornery). You might be uglier but, hopefully, you aren't that creepy. The web site even had that pointing finger.

DavidB,

I'm very disappointed that your avatar isn't you Changes my whole outlook, but I'd really like to see "Rab C. Nisbett". I love Britcoms, so I'd probably love "Scotcom's" as well!

Ok ladies - here's the real diss on our David - I have seen a photo of him. You take Rock Hudson's hair (when he was young lol), put that on George Clooney's face, add that to Arnold's (the governator) body add the dancing feet of Fred Astaire and you have our David.

Now I'll just sit here and wait for the lightening bolt to strike me dead

Luanne - exactly who are you referring to in your OP - is it a bad tipper with a breastfeeding friend lol.

ttfn Jennifer

Oh and yes Lombard, I went to your home Vulcan once,,too disciplined regarding view for me. Something to do with the media and everyone believed it, nearly touched on the collective.

Some of these ports eh !

Hi,
I guess this thread is confusing now that we don't have the same avatars or no picture at all. I got tired of looking at my smiley family picture and think it affected how people responded. Some better, some worse and some not at all.

I have seen a picture of the "real" David also. He's a good lookin fella and his likeness would take away from the intimidation and fear that he commands on this board.

now i forgot what this thread was about....hold on....Oh, what about the Dead Wings??

and Gigi, I am uglier, and creepier.

If I knew how without trying, I'd make our maltese my avatar as she's cute and sweet. But the "uglier and creepier" comment actually referred to the Gregor Fisher pic. After re-reading the post since it had been awhile, the ()'s were confusing. I really thought it was him until he said not, but I always found it repellent--which if you look up the web site for that show is a compliment as the character was *supposed* to be pretty icky, although generally loved.

As for your grinning demon, I was just disappointed when you took your lovely family off and put that one up. And it really was disturbing to me, although the flaming skull doesn't bother me at all. Go figure. So I know you *look* pretty normal anyway! Everyone's real pics made the web site very friendly, but they're slowly disappearing. However, I know I wouldn't post a pic of my children even though I loved seeing everyone else's families. NOT criticizing anyone who does especially since I love seeing them! It's just a teacher thing. We're obsessed with safety. Had a meeting just today about that very thing.
