    Dang it! I got all happy and called DH then I read it. Hilarious but when ARE they going to come to a decision?

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"

    Dismissed?
    Is that the same as being found not guilty?
    (or just a face-saving measure)

    Fatty is hilarious. One clone per team

    But Floyd did come in 3rd at last weekend's SM100 (Shenandoah Mtn 100).

    Oh...and welcome back, CM. You were the first one to officially welcome me to TE last summer on the "getting to know you" thread, and it's nice to "see" you back!

    Okay, that's just mean. I was about hit SEND on an email to about 6 people, after already telling Dh, who was overjoyed. Then I realized it was fake. I don't think I like you.

    Oops. Sorry, Jiffer! I figured the ladies here would catch on to the joke fairly quickly. Just curious, though: Did you read the article before writing that e-mail to those 6 people, or did you write it based just on the thread title? Not to go all preachy, but that's a good example of why it's so important to read and think about the news that's printed. It's not all fair, un-biased, fact-filled, or even accurate, whether it's a joke or not.

    My sincere apologies to anyone who didn't appreciate the joke. I'll try to be more blatant next time, I promise!

    Apology accepted. No, I didn't read the article before I wrote the email, but I did stop and make a point to read it before hitting SEND. So, I wasn't THAT much of an idiot. Only a minor idiot ... for a brief period of time.
