Hey, Cantie! You rock!
Congratulations on turning one! You're growing up so fast... :::sniffle::: I'm so proud of you!
Still a month to go,

To my favorite one-year-old poster:
Please don't say "Can-the-ree-ah" --
She doesn't rhyme with diarrhea.
Always say it "(I) can't hear ya"
Especially if she's somewhere near ya.
It doesn't scan very well but it makes the point. Darn! Now I can't see to type because I'm all teary-eyed!
"I'll tell him but I don't think he'll be very keen. He's already got one, you see!"

Well, we've got bad news and good news!!
The good news is you still get to celebrate your 1000th post.
We're going to have to keep track of people's first, second, third, etc., 1000th post parties. Maybe the first should be paper, second wood, third iron, etc.

So yesterday at 12:30 or so I posted an extremely self-congratulatory post about my first anniversary as a Dope message board user. I couldn't wait to see who would stop by to say "Hey Cantie, you rock!"
Then MPSIMS went down for what I gather was not the first time in 24 hours.
I can't recreate my post, but I can simulate what I said. My first post, on April 5, 1999, was a thread starter in GQ entitled Nanny Nanny Boo Boo: http://boards.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000185.html I had hoped to reach 1000 posts by now... so close!
Humble apologies to my Dopey friends out there for my recent absence. I have a new job which keeps me busy, thank God, and when I am online I'm busy at the wickedly addictive Asheron's Call.
Big love to all the Teeming Millions!
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.
With love from the poster voted as having the "Most Confusing Username"
