22. My dear Crazy Guggenheim!
You are also a BIG part of the fun at night in the Lounge. Where on earth would we all be without your wonderful pic threads to entertain and amuse us? I ALWAYS look forward to those, and feel sad when they don't appear...You are a PILLAR of the Lounge!

:loveya:

40. It pops up on every "best of" link
I think it was chosen as the funniest thread ever, and someone suggested Oscar as the official DU mascot.

If you'd been a choice, I'd have voted for you! You are one very special lady, you know!

17. Night crew primer.
CaliforniaPeggy is the nice, blue-eyed lady who brings a heaping helping of good cheer to the Lounge late at night.

Enigmatic is the one and only King of genreless Enigma internet Radio . . . click on his link and have a listen.

And there are many, many others who make the Lounge a great place to be at night/early morning: Droopy, WCGreen, KitchenWitch, LastKnight, MrScorpio, MissHoneyChurch . . . :grouphug:

25. Actually
What I meant was, i didn't know how Enigmatic or Crazy Guggenheim were in my poll. I assumed you meant that one was, for instance, the "Hey I'm drunk" option, or something like that. I see from your California Peggy posts that you meant to ask why they weren't in the poll, so my post became irrelevant.

30. Finding you flirting with Southlandshari!!!
:evilgrin: ...actually, my favorite forum was just "hidden" by "management" Election Results and Discussion, so that's my real answer.

Jimmey Buffet, the one good thing I'll say about him is, he's a loyal Democrat...

Lawrence Welk, yeah, that's it, not Lawrence Welk. No Polka!

I think I saw him once at CBGB's but I can't be sure, opened for the Sex Pistols on their "No More England" tour in the 70's.

How am I doing?

Wow, the last time I saw that, "Stop", in a subject field of a message to me, it was from the gone, but not forgotten, Valerie5959 or whatever her name was (((xoxo))), you know the one.

32. Other (There must always be an "other" option)
Variety. I like the fact that there are so many possibilities on DU. I never have to be worried about getting bored, and if I ever get overwhelmed by any one board I can de-stress by heading to the Lounge or one of the tamer groups or boards. DU has something for every mood and need.

46. LOL You know
She is good. I posted my 10,000 back around May, and I thought she missed it. A couple months later I mentioned this casually in another thread, and someone searched (I didn't have a star then) and found that she hadn't missed it, I had missed her post! (The thread sunk surprisingly quickly, proving my irrelevance around here, but it was there!)

Sorry, Newyawker, wish I'd been reminded while I could still edit!
