    yes.  2 or 3 minutes.  If no Comments have been posted by then, fair game.

    I do think it's impolite to just grab a high spot, I never rec those Comments.

      I have my pet peeves I like to stroke.

      Speaking of which, you used that word again.

      It was hot!

      Ope! Sorry, you did say something above about not stalking. I can't hardly help myself when it comes to you.

      However, I try not to be rude (though I frequently fail) so I'll leave you alone.

        They're annoying domestic rhetorical companions.

        Sheesh.

        but I don't work not blue.

        Chat all you like, I don't mind except when I'm tired or busy and I still don't mind, I just fell guilty about not being responsive enough.

          Not even flattered?

          Of course you work blue. Even on the orange site it's all about the blue.

          Better than the red.

          Or I think anyway.

          Some people can use that word like nonnie and it's actually funny. I try to reserve it for when I'm really het up.

          But cranky or otherwise I just can't help thinking of you as adorably cute.

              I'm not really sure how to take this.

              Maybe I'm just tired after this emotional week but it's a little obscured for me (or I'm obscured) to understand the meaning behind it.

              Hmmm... still haven't had that drink I was talking about a couple days ago. I just forget like that eating thing though I eat more often than I imbibe. Maybe that's what I'll do once I post this. It'll give me time to ponder and failing that maybe a bit o' alcohol will help clear it up for me (if you don't).

              Did you get all the work done that you wanted to today?

              This really is a nice diary. I think people are wiped out from all the adrenialalin (spell?) we've been running on the last few weeks of the last few years or there'd been more here otherwise.

                it was mostly this.

                I dunno, I could feel bad, but in some respects they aren't written to be read today.  And a project like this is something you have to commit to, every Friday from now at least until the Course Outline is complete.

                I do hope it develops into a franchise and keeps going whether I spin the wheels or not.  I sure could have used something like this in April of 2005 when I joined.  To me, it's the idea of a regular space where you can get your questions answered that is most important.

                And the response is not bad, definitely mid-listy and typical of the high end of my normal meta work.  If I want to build audience I'll just have to make sure I'm especially nice in all the usual places, which, as you say, was a little difficult this week with all the excitement and schedule modifications.

                I'm glad you liked it, if you were the only one it would be enough.

                I can't promise to be up much longer, but I'll check in tomorrow for sure and I'll see you in WYFP I hope.

                  You really are sweet (but I won't tell anyone). I'll be sure to be in WYFP if you'll be hoping for me. I have a problem all ready for broadcast.

                  I'm glad you liked it, if you were the only one it would be enough.

                  Awwww.... Meta-hugs and meta-kisses (and not ct-style).

                  What's really funny is I wanted to ask you about what you did prior to April 2005 last night given that's when I discovered this place myself. Wished I'd signed up then. I'd be your equal.

                  Did you lurk prior too?

                  I think back on all the times I saw the link to this place prior to 2005 in the various places I was searching for info and never clicked in or those times I did but didn't make the connection (I tried to read Jeff Feldman many times but I had a wandering mind then and couldn't get through it).

                  I agree. I would have sucked up these diaries no matter how old and did of those hotlinked above. Obviously I still read them and not just because you write them. I do still learn (and I think you've eve learned a couple -- one -- things from me). Regardless of what others think, you are my Meta-Man.

                  Don't feel bad either Gom'ek. 85 comments are better than zero (or two when you are half of them). I've seen you making sure others have at least one. A heart no matter how small (or large), made of gold. Just a lil' more of a slow dance compared to the excitement of the 200+ of the last couple weeks.

                  Slow dances are my favorite (and something I can even manage)

              For "gallantry" I'll take 2c.
