Hello DU
I hung out here in the lounge for the last 2 days, and it's been a real pleasure.

I have to get back to normal life, which means lurking a lot and only posting when I have time to type, but I think you all deserve a :toast: because, well frankly everyone at DU, :yourock:

1. Hi Pobeka!
I hope you have more time in the future to hang out and post here. Contrary to some opinions, many of us are very intelligent, dedicated, active and caring people. I've had the honor of meeting a great many DUers in person and I've been blown away at the diversity and strength represented here.

So welcome! :hi:

"You say good bye and I say hello..."

Who sang that again?

6. Well, I'd say even the GD is better than it had been in early November
It was down right *ugly* back then.

:hi: right back at you!

9. I'll do my part to help
For what it's worth I'm sorry I'm contributing to the post count on that thread. It's just one of my pet peeves. If you post a thread that you're leaving...well...you're supposed to leave. :-)

14. thanks to all you moderators
I suspect it's a thankless, nerve wracking, fuzzy logic job. Sometimes you make mistakes, but it looks to me like your success rate must be something near %99.99, based on the thread counts.

A :toast: to the mods!

37. Back from my leftovers from the indian dinner last night
And, as is the theme over the past few days, it was meatless.

But LOADED with butter. Verrrryyy tastey.

If anyone knows how to make those tomato-ey, buttery sauces I'd love
to find out. Every time I try it's a flop.

42. Oh yeah, I dig Indian food big time
We have the BEST Indian restaurant here.

I make a good rogan-josh, and also do good stuff with red lentils, but that tomato-ey buttery sauce still eludes me, after trying many recipies from library books.

39. Mmm, butter.
I've never made a tomato-ey, buttery sauce. But I did create a delicious dinner tonight, which I decided to call Cheesy Potato Sausage Bake. Had some Velveeta and turkey sausage hanging around that needed to be disposed of somehow.

27. While I really don't care
I think after you post a thread where you claim to say goodbye you're supposed to leave. Not that i care, of course, just thought you'd like to know, lol. aNYWAY, I think you should stay, as you obviously have some interesting views that are worth arguing over.
