I have to say, I'm disappointed by the considerable lack of mysterious symbols next to participant names this year. I had hoped for the swirly-m'jigger or a caret or something. It dons on me though that it's a great privilege and honor to be counted among the rest of the gang. I always say, it's the high point of my year in this dinky lil ole town. :D

Welcome to all newcomers.

Mrs would like to assure everyone that I am, in fact, the same in person that I am on the forum. She called it "being an pain the the <beep>". She has no idea why you'd want that bottled, but believes my personality can be achieved by anyone simply by behaving like a spoiled 3 year old child. She warns that the "cuteness" of a 3 year old is not transferable to an adult.

Jaysen, great information to have. But, are you certain you understood my comment? :D

As for carrots and carets, Vic-K, I enjoy the former sautéed with butter and sesame seeds. The latter fits best over the 'u' in an apple pie crust (croûte). I do entertain the other members of the family as their elder sibling is most content when paired with a larger companion, say 100? Her twin, however prefers to consort with that which is smaller in stature say, 24. All-in-all, I doubt yours is a true member of the family.

Part of may charm, as I like to think of it, is my ability to simply ignore any and all meaning except those that play nicely with my current mood.

You wouldn't want me to blow a cork would you?

Well, you could argue that's my lot in life. :roll:

However, I note that everyone else is a minus while I am a plus. 8)

I'm a little disturbed by the implicit mathematics, especially without Pigfender writing a chapter to help balance the equation. Still, I'll do my best... :P
