Okay, so clearly I need to put my online plans onto my offline calendar...

I will not be here for the chat debut party, as I'll be at a birthday party out of town. Hope y'all have fun!

I will come in to chat same time on the following day...


And since I won't be here to throw the switch on chat tomorrow, I shall go ahead and throw it tonight... Enjoy the new site color scheme and chat room!

I would enjoy the chat room more if there was someone else online to enjoy it with.

Sucks being in my time zone on a rainy Saturday.

It's more than :ok:, Granath, it's ++!

I also like how I only have to look up to see if there's anyone in the chatroom; like myself, right now!

Please note that the Forum Rules post in the announcement forum has been updated to include Chat Guidelines.

Also, the site FAQ has a section about Chat now, which everyone might want to scan through.

Cheryl,

I understand the feelings... I started to go into the chat when I realized I no longer know my password since I never log out. Hans, was nice enough to reset my password for me; however, by the time it was all done the chat room was empty. Seems to be my life right now... maybe next time I again someone will be there.

Cheryl, I love the new Chat Room and the new look to the site is just fantastic, it has a great Clasic look to the color scheme. I sure wish that you could have been in on the first one with us. We needed you there, to keep some of the crazies under control (pointing a finger at Hans,) he started it all.

Kater, It kind of depends on what we all consider to be old, or if some of us are ever going to act our age to begin with.

When I was a child, 30 was old. When I got into college, 50 was old. Now I am on the upper side of 40, old is a state of mind....and I refuse to enter that state!

That is a wonderfull way of seeing the ageing process AnnMarie.

When we are children we can't wait to get to be adults.

When we are young adults we think that we are never going to change, that we are going to be young forever.

When we get into our fourties, and fifties we start to try to go backwards to try to reach into our youth, to try and not think about the inevitable, of growing old, slowing down and making room for others to come after us.

Non of us want to think of the whole process, the whole stream of life, we are a here and now race of wonders.

Hear hear! I'm happy enough accepting my "real" age, and acting as I feel, not how I think I'm supposed to at this age. I accept who I am, how old I am, and that I too will eventually smell of cheese. Mmmmmm.... cheese....

Cheese? I've noticed that most people my age spend their time trying to "grow up" as fast as possible, then spend the rest of their lives wishing they were younger.

Granath, I certainly feel the same way, I would love to have the look of my youth, but not the stupidity that went along with it. Give me the look of youth, and the knowledge of age.

Here, here, Maelin! I don't even bother to think of my age much, or I might get depressed or something at plans that crumbled.
