Agreed. "Is that a long service medal or are you...?"

Thanks, ya'll! We ate at the Outback Steak House tonight; only my second time (though not for lack of trying--when I've wanted to go there, say, on my birthday, it's always such a long wait that I get discouraged), and it was delicious. And even now, on a rainy weeknight, we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table.

Happy Birthday etaoin and Happy Anniversary Jackie!

Both of you are fine folks. Sure, you two have your little idiosyncrasies, but most of the time you hide them so well that some people barely notice. I mean, of course the people who know you best and have to interact with you on a daily basis must suffer through your many quirks and on and off ill-temperments, but hey...that's what love-ones are for...right? But still, I wonder how they...

Wait a minute! This is your birthday, etaoin, and Jackie this is your anniversary, right? What the heck, for now let us all just forget your minor flaws and wish you both a happy day...yesterday.

themilum:

Can't you help yourself at all? Why do you have to snipe like that? It reveals nothing but an underlying meanness of spirit which we do neither appreciate nor condone at AWADtalk.

I will repeat: the library is over that way.

Mmm TEd, does your skill at puning preclude other forms of wit?

Who on God's green Earth, I ask, other than TEd, can't discern the fact that my post was in jest?
Jeez!

And by the way, Ted, please explain the humor you find in referring me to the library.
Please.

And by the way...TEd. Who exactly is this "WE" that doesn't appreciate and doesn't condone?
And how did you get to be their spokesman?

er, TEd, for however laudable reason I think that may have been an over-reaction. I certainly chuckled at Milo's ribbing, and I reckon Jackie and eta are big enough to take it in stride.

Let's breathe slowly before starting lobbing bricks at each other, eh guys?

I apologize, Maverick and everybody, a smarter man would have stopped after saying that he was just kidding.
