Over and over. The rest is mostly some oom-dadadadada words.

Would someone please tell me what this is about. TIA

Have you been partying with Gozer lately? This sounds like his territory....

Can one pay homage to another's décolletage?

Only via decoupage.

A little light badinage works, too.

Or more discreetly, via espionage. (Via the subterfuge of affixing a corsage.)

Perhaps with the right corsage and some charming badinage, they'll consent to join your menage.

He said he was trying to get the train operator to slow down by furiously firing off his camera flash.

I just realized that I can quote a portion of a post magically just by selected what I want and then clicking the Quote button. I suppose that's documented somewhere....

Well, aren't you special. I can't do that (Windows OS, Mozilla or Chrome browsers).

Really? I am literally floored (I'm sitting on the floor, really). Here, let me channel my inner Tech Support Guru:

"Thank you for waiting--your continued purchase of our services is somewhat important to us. You probably clicked the Quote button incorrectly, but just in case, did you try turning your computer off and then back on? If so, did you try turning it off, unplugging it, and then going to a local bar for an hour or so before coming back, turning it back on, and verifying that nothing changed? You did? Hmm, I'm stumped. I'll have to send the report on to our development staff."

Two weeks pass. When you call back:

"Thank you for waiting--I thought about picking up the phone earlier, but I had almost cleared the level I was on. I sent your report to the development team, and they said it was supposed to work that way. Do you have any other questions?"

Wow. I've been quoting the whole thing and then going back and deleting since my join date.

Of course, I just recently figured out how to put stuff from a linked article into a tan quote box in my post. Same with italics and bold. I went years without even looking at that control panel. I even figured out how to post a picture awhile back, but I seem to have lost the ability. I'm okay with that.

I think Stebben84 and Detritus are lying to me. That's a pretty random thought, right?

I go to Stebben84's comment, use my mouse to highlight the word "been", and click the quote button. This is the result:

Based on Detritus's comment, here is what I was expecting to see:

Stebben84 wrote:been


But to get that, I have to go in and manually delete all the non-been verbiage.

So now I am feeling sad.
