Don't worry, @Scarecrow . That happens to me all the time.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

No, why? Oops, sorry, I did have plastic surgery. I looked like this before.

That's why I claim plastic surgery is pure evil, it just turns things to worse

WHOA. I only found out this past Christmas that the younger of my two nephews was engaged... and this past week I found out he's now married. It was a small, civil ceremony- only 4 people, including my sister and brother-in-law (but not me, obviously...).

I sometimes wonder if I would want to meet people that I know via websites. If the situation arose (unlikely as I only participate in 2) I would really have to give it a lot of thought. Then again I may just say "what the ****" and go for it.
Extremely pleased that it clearly worked for you Kenickie

Thanks, @Werewolf Girl . You're one of my favorites too!

Did you hear our one-time moderator, River, had a baby, just a week ago? A little girl.

I thought it was pretty big news. Spring has finally sprung. It should be 70° tomorrow, although there are still a few patches of snow on the ground.
