Welcome Carla and Jerico!  Carla, it was nice talking with you in chat the other night.  Jerico, so nice to see you over here - I've enjoyed reading your posts at IMDb.

I'm gonna copy Carla's idea (imitation is the highest form of flattery, after all) and post a larger version of my (newish) avatar here since it's so small.




Nice to know ya both.  I think you'll find that it's some sweet life over here.
No more beans!

Great pic Barb.  LOL, I did that at first because I couldn't get the avitar thing figured out.  I do think it is nice to know the people you are chatting with, you know? 


Still go the fever everyone.  A sick daughter slowed me down a bit....(pnuemonia)  Someone wants to borrow my copy of the short story.  I am going to pretend like I keep forgetting!

LOL, I always did the same thing, and ended up not lending it to them, but buying them their own copy!  ;D

Great pic of you, Carla!  What a lovely lady you are!  I think it's nice to have a mental picture of folks you're chatting with, too.  But then I've always been a very visual person - it's how my memory works.  I can remember every phone number I've ever had, and I do it by picturing the keypad and the sequence of the numbers being entered in.  I think that's why all us software developer geeks are good at coding and math and such, but not so good at listening.

ANYWAY...  I've also bought copies of the movie and the short story to just give to people, too, rather than lend them my own.  Hey, it's the gift that keeps on giving, and you never know when you want to take a little more from it.  Plus I feel like I'm supporting it all the more by throwing as much money at it as possible.

I am glad you decided to use your picture as your avatar! You look exactly like a friend of mine from my volunteer job!  ;D
