Now I feel bad for starting the Fuck! thread in the wrong place.

Okay. Not.

Things I should be doing right now, instead of squabbling on the eplaya:

Writing thank-you notes

Writing an angry letter to the owners of the parking lot next door, whose negligence caused a car fire that nearly burned our house down (long story)

Reformatting invitation to our wedding reception, so that it acknowledges that I, too, have a last name

*sighhhh*

Oh yeah.. thanks, admins! You like us, you really like us!

My dad gave me an eclair yesterday. It was very good. It was good for dinner, as was the cake (with LARD FROSTING, my favorite) I ate for breakfast.

Ivy, and other LA-areans, if you feel warm fuzzy thoughts around 9 tonight, they're coming from me, in the 747 overhead.

I'll be in the LA area tomorrow for some work junk. Short trip this time. Will try to allow for some play-time next trip!

I used to live in the flight path. The warm fuzzies would have been nearly unbearable from there. Oh wait, that was the jet noise. Warm fuzzies are always good.

I'll hoist my glass of whatever to you tonight.

Only the best girls are aware of the benefits of LARD.

Lard: It's What's for Dinner. And breakfast, when I'm cooking. Anybody else like their runny fried eggs cooked in LARD?

Lard is all well and good for one's runny fried eggs, but I prefer drippings.. of the kind that MFK Fisher describes as "very English, the kind poured off an unidentified succession of beef, mutton, and bacon pans, melted gradually into one dark puddle of thick unappetizing grease, which immediately upon being dabbed into a thick hot iron skillet sends out rendingly appetizing smells."

But who eats mutton any more, you may ask? In a pinch, bacon grease will do.

Mmmm. Bacon....

Borris,
congratulations on the new listing for Israel.
That and lard means there really is cause for celebration.

questions to anyone who knows - - -

I'm having massive problems with my avatar. Photoshop keeps making the files larger than it says it is in "image size" - I finally got my image down by jockey-ing between photoshop & mac photo preview - and yet I see others with great seemingly hi res avatars - - - mines all smooshed up.

so confused!

help!

not to co-opt yours Jane - just wanted to try to create a little critical mass in this forum (to borrow Tiara's excellent phrase).

I have been on the eplaya, amongst a few other websites, all evening tonight and I am feeling terribly pathetic about it.

Post by actiongrl » Wed Sep 10, 2003 10:07 pm

old eplaya: too many threads to sort through!

new eplaya: too many subheadings to organize the threads!

First day back in the office and already ya can't please everyone all the time.

We're trying, over here. Really, we are.

Have you checked the "top ten posters" thing in the memberslist yet?

If you still feel pathetic you can at least know you're not as pathetic as some...of...us...

With this post i will be tied for 11th. Not sure if thats good or bad. Or maybe I am just finding myself further from the eplaya thanI used to be.

Maybe I will actually get this business started now That I am not here as often. I am just finding it so terribly frustrating. I never know what page I should start on, I never know what threads I have read and havnet read.

Helllllo handbasket.
