Sanding our assholes with 150 grit.

I hereby declare Tuesday to be "sign your name as Philo day"

During which time we all sign all of our posts "Philo" at the bottom of the Message textarea.

Note that signing your name as "Philo" in the Full name field is discouraged, unless you ARE Philo. That is not the point of this exercise.

So, tomorrow is "Sign your posts 'Philo'" day, as will be every subsequent Tuesday.

No, I hereby declare Tuesday to be "fuck around with the name you use to sign your posts" day.

Isn't Pastry Tuesday just before Lent?

Oh, like "Philo dough" pastry? I got it, didn't I? Sure, I knew I could.

BTW, "everybody sign their name "Philo"" is a dumb idea. Thursdays are for surreality. How is everybody signing "Philo" surreal?

And why would you announce it three days early, anyway?

Right, it SAID Tuesday. I missed it. I still think it's not a good idea.

Well Allan I think everything out of your mouth (fingers) is dumb, so we're about even.

Oh! It WAS your idea in the first place. Sorry to rain on your parade.

What in the good, crazy, OILY fucking Hell are you talking about, Allan?

Well, Mark Warner, since you were the Original Poster (OP) on this thread, it WAS your idea to make Tuesday "sign your name as Philo" day.

And I thought that was a bad idea, and said so, and in the process "rained on your parade".

So that's the story behind that. And it's now 8:00 PM, and I should be doing something much more productive than this at this time.

Later.
