  1. Hi bottle! Increasing exposure to Clack day by day until we get to the SOURCE OF ALL THE CLACKY GOODNESS?!!!! Oh my goodness!!! Like you say, it's going to be hard. But bring it on!!! It's for the team! ETA: I wonder how much a "rendering session" with Clay would go for at a gala auction?
  2. Yes, losing it bad!!! ETA: Badly, I meant "badly"... it's the adverb that ends in -ly right? right?!! Aaargh!!!
  3. *looks up in wonderment at my previous post* Did I mention that the banner also seems to affect one's ability to appreciate the aesthetic value of white space and carriage returns? (not that it had anything to do with KAndre, that was all pre-Banner) Couchie, about that firm (hee, I got to say it) -- let's call it AIK, Aiken Insurance for Klutzes.
  4. Continuing the saga of that extremely distracting banner... I've been progressively clumsier every day that it's been up. Today I upturned a whole frying pan containing what should have been my lunch and then my dinner tonight. Now s me may question the wisdom of having the banner up on a large monitor so close to my stove but I hold myself entirely blameless for this. I think we should simply take insurance policies every time cindi releases new edition, especially if the new label heeds our request to keep the current look indefinitely. (couchie, how about if we start an insurance firm for the fandom? even if we mess up, we might be able to get a bailout?)
  5. I have to post a small complaint, though. Our banner is v. v. distracting!!! I have never mistyped so many things, clicked on the wrong buttons and failed to click the right ones in my life!!! We need some major warning signs around it!!! I forgot to say this on the first day bec. my mind turned to molasses. but thank you so much for a beautiful job, cindilu2!!! And thanks also for getting it up so quickly.
  6. Yay, Page 1! Thank you so much for the beautiful banner and for the "large" picture versions and wallpapers. It's great to see him looking so wonderful!!! I can just sit here and stare up at the banner for hours and hours... better to sit 'cause doesn't he just make you go all weak at the knees?!! (and the same goes for yesterday's winning picture. Thanks for reposting, ldyj!)

    I was lazy on this one because it was late and I was mesmerized by the picture that canfly conveniently posted here... so I went through the title from left to right, picking words or word fragments (or words that sounded like them, eg. canfly's "ewe" instead of "you"), looked them up in an online dictionary or thesaurus and copied down whichever definition beckoned; after a while, the phrases just seemed to organize themselves around a theme... The "restroom" at the beginning of the title is a good place to start, because how many songs begin with a word or part of a word that means "restroom"? eg. If Clay had sung "Louie Louie", this would have been a good clue: Song: Louie Louie Clue: restroom us restroom us (loo we loo we) So, what song (and one that Clay has performed) begins with a word that also means "restroom"? Oh, and it really should read: restroom anyone overflow most satisfying have it bad in excess murkiness

  11. I can't find anything like that, but I don't understand the innards of this thing. It's ok now. I think it was my workstation. Thanks for checking, though! And thanks for the blog link, Caro! ... how about powdered sugar?
  12. Question for the admins: do we implement flood control for screen refreshes? I've been getting some inexplicable slow downs (or maybe I'm just impatient). Thanks in advance for checking! ETA: baby powder?
  13. Good luck and lots of hugs {{{everyone seeking jobs}}}!!! Times are tough everywhere. Some women in my workplace formed a networking group and we share relevant articles, have a monthly lunch with a speaker or featured video and assign mentors to those who need or want them. These are some of the more interesting articles that have been posted recently. I hope you find them useful or interesting. Since these are generally geared towards 'women at the workplace' issues (I won't say 'working women' because that's always been redundant since prehistoric times), maybe I should put them in a different thread? Just wanted to post them here first since I think the folks who would appreciate them come visit here. ================================================== Interesting article on women's role in business: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...9071002358.html White House Council on Women and Girls http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office...omen-and-Girls/ One Reason Why Women Don't Make it to the C-Suite http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?dir...site=ehost-live Revenge of the Nerdette http://www.newsweek.com/id/140457 Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success by Claire Shipman and Katty Kay - discusses the power of women in the marketplace both as consumers and in the workplace.

One goes "I will do" and another goes "I will try". Girl Scouts say "I will try" because they believe that being honest about the situation is the important thing. However, if you were conducting a job interview who would you hire, the person who's says he's going to do it or the person who says that "she will try"? Uh-huh... even though both of them would have just "tried their best" anyway. - Some tips from the Heim group: http://www.heimgroup.com/freetips.asp

    jmh, you're right! And "A Horse with No Name" is the band America's biggest hit song, as canfly googled! might I add how adorable his interactions with the other performers and his trademark mannerisms were that night... *sighs*
