4. Even though he stole my breifcase, I just can't stay mad at him.
Edited on Thu Jan-22-04 11:36 PM by LeviathanCrumbling
Then again I am still a little miffed that he made me burn down my neighbors house.

edit: Ok, ok, it wasn't like he was holding a gun to my head, but he was a contributing factor.

5. *hand raised*
And a question: If people with dial-ups "have a problem" with the thread, then why would they click on it?? The little notation that it has 348 replies would tell me that it would take a while to load.

I am on dial-up and it hasn't given me any problems.

Some folks are just party poopers.


FOO FOREVER! :loveya:

6. Me, Me!

I think I may have met one (or two) of his relatives way back early 70-ish haunting the mist-soaked blackberry tangles and wooded hills and vales 'round the U of W when I was a kid...

I'm warming up this Sunday with the GGs (golden globes). You've got to love an awards show where the participants can get as drunk as the spectators. :-)

35. FOO?? I'm a LOO!!
Lover of Oscar. :bounce:

Phony, plastic, contrived, narcissistic, self-congratulatory, glam and cheesily nostalgic. What's not to love?

37. I have a friend's sister who works for the American Zoology Association.
I sent her the original Oscar thread, and have asked for her assistance in identifying what kind of creature he is.

I want someone to sign him up on DU - I bet his posts would be quite interesting.

Is there anyone who wouldn't want to get Oscar's input?
