Oh, I just thought up a much better sig for the gingerbread man thing. In the interest of brevity, I won't quote it again but will edit my post.

Whatever this is. It's a broken image appearing next to your (and others') names:

Phpbb wrote in a rude manner:

I see why there are no avatars on this forum. I tried for an hour to manipulate my selected picture to meet the requirements but it still laughed at me. Finally gave me this error.

Yeah, but nobody got to see the cool picture I was going to use. And because the software talked rude to me nobody's going to see it nohow, noway.

Let's not mention the girlfriend who routinely rattles my cage with the threat of breakup over being vaguely unhappy, knowing full well it'll leave me homeless.

I hate the holidays.

Are you talking about US? Are WE the makeshift family? If anything, we've been trying to get you to post MORE.

Look, 10 years ago you got a little worked up, took things a little too seriously and took some time off. Then you returned as a valuable member and contributor.

You should see yourself the way I see you.

Oh, I was actually referring to hapticanimal and co. Things have been pointlessly stressful for various stupid reasons. But yes, late night depressed posting after an argument tends to lead to.. Less savory thoughts.

Thank you everyone! I'll make sure to call on Billy Mays for help if I need it!

Ok, so Los Angeles County is suing four major retailers because they made false advertising claims. I put this in here cause it tangentially Christmas related. Retailers have been doing this for decades, if not longer, why get all up in arms about it now?

Well, we survived. I guess it was fun. Glad it's only once a year. Like the holiday, hate the pressure. What are the song lyrics by the Waitresses again? the Commander will know, I'm sure.

Got a bat house! OOooo! That will keep the marskeechios down next summer. There's lots of stuff I'm gonna get online in the next couple days too.

So I was so wasted, I encountered hapticanimal and she tried to swallow a bottle of my pills.
She was then admitted to inpatient, apparently... As I just woke up from falling asleeeeeeep at the toilet.
