Flora's *connection* is dead.

Just a clarification for those who would have been as frightened as I was.

That was not a nice thing to do to a poor clerical worker on a Monday morning!

::still recovering::

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus, dogs are from Pluto.

Oh, pul-eeze. All you had to do was open the thread and you’d see everything was fine. Thanks for ruining my creativity.

I guess one persons creativity is another persons bad humour.

You people have been watching too much Barney. Flora is flattered that you all care so much but here’s a message from her (copied and pasted):

Quote from Flora: Tell them if they don’t stop yelling at you–on a Monday morning yet!–I really will go out and kill myself, and then PL Dennison came come online, make fun of me, and take the heat off you.

Sax, I understand your need for humor on a Monday, but it had the opposite effect on me…

Sorry if I ruined your humor, but glad if I can stop someone else from being freaked out!

No hard feelings, I hope. :slight_smile:

Glad to hear you are alive and kicking Flora!!

I am me… accept it or not.


It is too early on a Monday to be this confused.

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

I actually took the topic more as a metaphor.

As in “Flora hit the Chicago meeting last night and she’s dead this morning.”

I’m still waiting for the skiny on that, by the way. Apparently my name was brought up – hopefuly in a god context.

“…hopefuly in a god context.”

We don’t expect too much, now do we? :wink:

I, of course, meant good context!

::Note to self: I am not a deity and proofread::

Cripes, I can tell you folks that SaxHead has enough tact that if our favorite glam Doper truly had passed on that she wouldn’t announce it in a thread glibly entitled “Flora’s dead.”

Of course if I kicked tomorrow, Sax would probably make my death announcement a P.S.

“NYC Meeting on Dec 8! P.S. manhattan, make the reservation for seven, not eight.”

Back off, man. I’m a scientist.

Alphie, thank you for sticking up for me in this sea of wolves.

But just in case something horrible happens, will you make sure to bequeath your lab coat to me? Thanks. I’ve already left you my saxophone (stand).

Great. Now I’m a wolf.

Saxybaby, I humbly apologize - I don’t know you from Eve and have heard things just as callously reported.

I tried to be light-hearted with my original post… Could it be you missed my humor too?

I understand the original title was meant to be humorous, but even now I forget it’s there and it still spooks me out. It would have helped if you had put “dead” in quotes.

I admit I’m a little oversensitive on this topic–my mother died three months ago.

Cathearya, it’s all cool.

Whitetho, sorry to hear about your mom, but I’m not going to not post something because it might offend someone.

I tiptoe around people’s qualms in real life, I’m not going to do it here.
