This is really confusing me...

Up above, when you posted your answers, you had 11 posts...

Now you write in a few more words, it says you have 1 post...

I am confused... :?

Is this a site problem?


if ckremsage is on 2 diff pcs, then the fact that one login is ckremsage and the other is ckreTmsage might make the posts different :| unless im gettin totally the wrong end of the stick about whats wrong now

No problem Stace. Since this has become the third longest thread on this forum, one would assume that people will start skipping pages. :D


Here's my answers:
1. What is your favorite emoticon on this forum?
There are a lot of good ones here, but I guess I'll pick this one: :alc:

2. Would you rather be hot or cold? Why?
Hot! I love being able to go outside without having to put on a coat, or much of anything, for that matter.

3. Approximately how many hours (work & play) a week do spend on the computer?
This time of year probably 20 to 30 hours a week.

Well... If he/she [I just realized that I have no idea if Quercus is male or female] keeps this up every single Thursday, it'll be sure to become the longest thread soon.

1. What 5 places do you want to see before you die? Why?

NORWAY - My 4th Grade teacher was from Norway and she made it sound like a wonderful place. I've wanted to go there ever since. I'd love to see a fiord.

NEW ZEALAND - My cousin went there and came back with some impressive pictures. Sounds like a pretty nice place to live, actually.

SCOTLAND - I've wanted to see Scotland ever since the movie The Highlander came out. Now I know someone who lives that and she has confirmed how beautiful the countryside is.

PUERTO RICO - I've been there twice, but I really like it there. Looks like a good place to retire.

CHILE - I know someone who lives there.
:D

2. What is your favorite vegetable?

Asparagus and spinach

3. What picture do you currently have on the desk top of the computer you use most often?

When you say web shots aren't you talking about your screen saver? My screen saver is a slide show of pics that I have taken or collected which follow various themes. Whatever theme I feel like at the time. My desktop however, is a picture I took of an Iris in my garden.

Thanks! :D

I enjoy seeing life through a macro lens, it helps to remind me just how miraculous nature really is.


BTW, I am a she and I'm married to a member of this forum. It shouldn't be too difficult to figure out who that is.:idea:

Drew, I just changed my background to yours... that's one hell of a picture. I can't be missing out on it.
