    Greta I dunno what you're talking about. When I want to interview someone I always go to their most recent blog post and make my request via the comments thread. That way the owner has to dig to find it, and I know if (s)he's really committed to his/her cause. I also try to sound like a Nigerian check scam as much as possible, so as to leave the commentors scratching their heads. Gotta keep 'em guessing.

    Skerrib,

    That was exactly what I was thinking when I read that comment!

    And I've been wanting to interview John for months and he doesn't seem to ever find my requests!

    Maybe if I use exclamation points after every sentence!

    He has to see I want to interview him now!

    Too funny. I just got here. Of course I'd now like to delete that request (not because I'm not interested, but because … it's so out of place here), but … then I'd have to delete the comments ABOUT it below it, and that would be Major Carnage.

    So. I'll let it sit.

    Sam: I'm sorry, but you're right: I've never gotten any such request from you. Which is lucky for you: Trust me, I'm a boring interview.

    John,

    Thanks for taking me up on my suggestion. Great choice. I would imagine McCain's supporters looking to Obama like something without teeth yet somehow carnivorous, that lives in clustered, rudimentary housing, voraciously loyal and clingy (as to bibles and guns) — but that's just me talkin'.

    Nah. I'm just being hard on McCain, see. I'm not actually ascribing those characteristics to the dog; I'm saying that's how McCAIN sees those characteristics relative to his perception of their relationship to Obama supporters.

    Man. That's TWICE I've had to explain these jokes. That's definitely … two times too many. I must be lagging…

    You silly :-) I knew that!

    I was just flaunting my dry Midwesterner sense of humor.

    Shoulda put a smiley-face after. Ooops.

    John,

    Just kidding about the interview request – I haven’t really made one yet.

    You aren’t leaving the Libertarians out of the animal icon action are you?

    Ah. Well, I know that you're a huge lover of dogs (and love huge dogs, for that matter), and if there's ONE thing I've learned in my career as a "humorist," it's that people can sometimes lose their sense of humor real quick when it comes to things about which they have particular passion or interest. But that didn't happen this time, I see! No worries if it had. There's a whole bunch of stuff I can't get funny about at all. It just so happens that Rastafarian dogs isn't one of them.

  • Candace

    Sigh. Poor people with too much of the humorless sort of passion. They do suffer so.

    I wanna know how to make an avatar, so I can look like one of my dogs rather than a quilt square. :-)

    Being as they are extremely cute and lovable.

    I will have to figure this out, this avatar thing.

    I'm Avatar Ignorant, for sure. All I know is that, on my end, I have a choice between having these quilt things appear next to people's names, or leaving them blank. I figure they're better than a blank box, but … maybe not. Whatever.

    The one for you there–that purple … thing–isn't very appealing, is it? It's, like, "Candace, the Psycho Boring Person." Not good.

    Of course, that's about the same message my mug delivers. So maybe it's hopeless either way…

  • Lynn

    I like my “quilt thing,” square, avatar, whatever…it’s a bit ‘comforting’…and I’m not sorry for the pun :)

    Can I have Candace’s since she doesn’t want hers? Purple is pretty. Pretty pleeeez?

    Don’t look at me… Candace started this…lol.

    “Tag,” you’re it Candace :)

  • Candace

    Hey, Lynn, seriously, as soon as I manage to fill that quilt frame with a big old mastiff face, the purple is yours.

    But you hafta figure out the details of the transfer, as I haven’t a CLUE!

    BTW, I agree with John that a quilty thing is better than blank space.

  • Lynn

    Hey Candace, on second thought, once you figure out how to fill the frame with your fav dog's face, let me know how you did it, so I can fit a Chocolate Lab's face into the frame I've been given. Isn't it a woman's perrogative to change her mind?

    Okay, on to more serious matters…

    (Lynn – still researching. Not coming up with much by way of info. BUT, will share when I do get it figured out. And I WILL figure it out … only a matter of time.)
