I'll start, of course.

I live in a small town called 'Likely' and I'm a 'Guy'. Pretty complicated, I know.

Edward de Bono's "hats of cognition" (or as I've heard them referred by my colleagues "De Bono's bloody hats").

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Ah! 'Six Thinking Hats'. I'll have to download a copy, sounds interesting.

We adopted our daughter from China at the age of six.  As she was learning English she would listen very carefully to what we were saying and when we finished a thought she would pause and say:  an den?  :w00t:   So "and then" just seemed appropriate.

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

I liked the sound of it, sort of fit my mind at the time.
Sot used to mean fool before it came to mean drunkard, so "ShadowFool."

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

That's cool. Sometimes when I 'liked' someone's comment and so did you, it came out as "Likely Guy and and then likes this" or "and then and Likely Guy likes this". Neither of which makes any sense.

My name is Zara, and I like dressing up as a kitty.. as seen above.

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

I have to say that I had to look up Vivian Vance. I remember her now, funny lady. Her and Lucy at the chocolate factory skit was a classic!

That was a funny one!! The belt started going faster and they couldn't keep up so they started shoving them in their mouth and down their shirts ahaha I love that show!! But the name Vivian Vance just sounded so glamorous and classy and I always said since a young age that if I ever had a daughter her name would be Vivian...

Airbrushing is an art unto it's own. A friend of mine, a long time ago, had an airbrush. His use of friskets was amazing. Sometimes it was just his hand.
