Dear Aposphet,

I humbly grovel at your feet for the brilliance that is yours.

Perfect internets.

He looked different than I thought he would. Not that that's either good or bad.  :)

Same here.  I thought he was far older, given his curmudgeonly, albeit hilarious disposition.

I remember when I first saw the picture, I froze for a minute. So unexpected! I hope that Aposphet asked for his permission before adopting his likeness as his avatar ;)

Can't wait till he is old. It will be a wonder to behold.

Imitation is the best form of flattery.

Honestly though, I was also surprised.

I actually was waiting for Isa to tell me to borrow his picture via ex cathedra.

I hope you had a chuckle at my custom below my name orthonorm.

You have tightened your game up considerably since your start here. Hope it reflects that you have tighten things up outside the forum as well and that your mood is better in general.

LOL please don't base my mood outside of the forum based on what I post haha. I've always been a no care in the world kinda guy with some bouts of depression here and there.

WTF is with your avatar?

The contest. Opus got to choose mine. She was generous and gave four interesting options.

Nice with the .sig!

Your work here lately has my complete stamp of approval!

Yeah, it's been a while and the avatar in the OP has been changed. While I must admit I'm a fan of all of Poppy's avatars on a consistent basis, I just want to publicly say Azurstone has had a good one up for a while now.
And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

A guy I work with wore a cookie monster shirt to work one day and someone walked up to him and jokingly made the "om nom nom" sound, so it makes me think of Adam and Eve eating the fruit like cookie monster eats cookies every time I see it.  :laugh:

You don't qualify for consideration since I can't see it on threads (I have to go to your profile to see it).  8)

Well THAT explains everything. Go get Firefox, Chrome, Opera whatever. The fast you get off IE, the closer you get to salvation my friend.
