Thanks so much for the great advice re firefox, Stephen!! I'm tired and slow tonight, but it's so OBVIOUSLY much faster than IE. Can't wait to try it when I'm actually awake.

Also, the new "comment" box on the solved page is a nice addition. Haven't felt the need to use it yet, but there have been times when i WISHED it was there.

Guess what? I used the new "comment box" to flag an incomplete quotation by Anatole France.

"Chance is perhaps the pseudonym of God..."

Leave out the first three words and you lose a lot! Have not checked: doubtless this omission has been duly noted in Bansai's Incomplete Quotations thread.

So tell me: what idiot removed the "l" from technical when she started this thread on technical glitches? Did a part of my brain vanish without surgical assistance? Moving one's residence can be stressful... everyone says so...

Re Dorothy Parker, Joseph, I agree. Did she not make the famous rejoinder, "pearls before swine," to Clare Boothe Luce -- or was that wrongly attributed?

Alexander Woollcott, a close friend and colleague at the Algonquin Round Table, called Parker "so odd a blend of Little Nell and Lady Macbeth. It is not so much the familiar phenomenon of a hand of steel in a velvet glove as a lacy sleeve with a bottle of vitriol concealed in its folds."

Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses.

re Kate Hepburn: She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B.

Despite four suicide attempts in her youth, Parker lived well into her 70s. Upon turning 70 she quipped: If I had any decency, I'd be dead. All my friends are.

RESUME

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.

Might as well... like Cryptograms, it's pretty much the only game going.

Default Whew...

Nice to know, Bansai, that the aforementioned IDIOT was someone else --

(a thief in the night?) -- and not yours truly.

That's gotta be a little boy sitting by the blackboard wearing a dunce cap... right?

Good! Cause last time I checked... I'm still a girl. Even at my age.

Cool No gender confusion here

I know you're a girl. I didn't think you were an Italian guy named Andrea. The fact that I used an image of a boy doesn't mean I think you're a boy.



No more than my other image means I think you're Bart Simpson (but evidently, you didn't click on my thumbnail)

Default Nope...

Sorry. I neglected the thumbnail.

But who knows... what or who I am... really.

Boy, girl, young, old, serial (fill in the blank). Suppose I put up an avatar pic... even then...

How would you know it was my actual likeness?

No, sir. Until you've seen someone IN THE FLESH (scary, huh) -- ya never know. We sit at our keyboards and take it all on faith. Blind Faith (how's about a thumbnail of Steve Winwood).

Now. Do you have a dunce-capped little girl... handy for the occasion.

Andrea

(who is not an Italian guy -- not even an Italian woman! Go figure...)

P.S. You could call me a "serial solver." Yup. That fits.
