Grep
Random.
*THWACK*

Why aren't you using your CM avatar?
Ouch, you twacked me.
Rhyle hira.
I got Thwacked by everyone! - sorry Amarie, i confess i forgot to update it until now it's been a bizarely busy week what with a thiry page usability analysis to write and sick grandparents, parts of said grandparents house collapsing, arguementative parents, friends leaving for Oz, friends returning to OZ, friends to support in competitions, writing parts of a business plan, some serious drinking with friends and looking for a job. Wow that was a busy week - i should write down what i do in a week more often! I feel the warm glow of accomplishment.
*pats Grep on the back*
There there, no one was thwacking you.

Well that was a busy week. Hope things will work out for the best. There is always the journals if you want to share, or the council e-mail. I promise we will go "Oooooooooh!" and "Ahhhhh!" and "Awwwww..." in the right places. Smile Smilie
What did you guys have to do to get your avatar to update - mine's being a pain.
Looks like you have succeded. Delete the old one and refresh twice after uploading.
Ahh - firefox's cache must be stickier than i thought.
Hey Grep, what does the text say on your avatar? It's too faint for me to see...
Thwack me! Thwack me! You can do it, Vee!
Thwacking? This is a Test Thread, not a Test Threat.
All I can say Grep is, it must be tough at the top!!!!

I can't see it either. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Since when has Grep been a Council Member? Wink Smilie

Sorry, Grep, just trying to be random as instructed.... The trouble I find with these CM banners, Grondy, isn't that I cannot read them, but that my avatar has compressed..... I wouldn't worry, but my once tall elf is gradually becoming short and stubby like a dwarf. This is the second time he's shrunk, because once upon a time he used to be a 90X70 Gif, the transformation to a 70X70 Gif knocking several inches off his once proud stature. At this rate, he'll soon be a hobbit.
No, silly people. Wink Smilie There is some white text on Greps avatar. On the birdy. Was easier to see before. I know I have seen the picture before but I cannot remember where. Tell us, Grep!!!

Val, you might wanna look a bit closer at your own avatar too, because I have not compressed it at all so I have no idea what you are complaining about. I deliberately did NOT compress it because the guy looked funny when I tried it. I was a bit worried that you would complain about the kitty being covered up, but... *laughs* no worries there, huh?

Is it something like Apoll 1 murder crows
that is what I can see and semi read
Murder crows? Lance Armstrong won't be happy to hear that...

Anyway, speaking of murder, i'm currently getting a really weird google ad in this thread :

"Aria sells battle ready pets to aid you in battle! Adopt a widdle killing machine!" Orc Going Huh Smilie

It must be the whole optical illusion created by the bottom of the avatar being covered up, which made the elf appear shorter. It's a relief to know he won't be needing to buy smaller clothes anytime soon. Big Smile Smilie
I love it when the word catches the essence of the group like a scurry of squirrels, a prickle of porcupines and a crash of rhinos. So poetic.

Can we make up our own?


Like a curry of squirrels?
Or a pickle of porcupines?
Curried squirrels? Pickled porcupines? What's this - Preserve Wildlife Week?

No, cooking with Elves. Very Big Grin Smilie

How about, and no offense meant:

A Tumult of Tommies

What Elf? Val, all I can see in your avatar and all I've been seeing in your avatar and probably all that I'll see in your avatar in the future, unless you show me the full scale image, is some mountain thing with three black flying saucers! (Ok. Maybe too much of the X-Files!) But that's all I can see in there!
You see, mate, you're too much into sci-fi. Snap out of it and stare at Val's avatar for some hours and you might just make out that there's an armoured elf standing on a ridge with a couple of mountain lions looking beyond the horizon for something. And there are mountains in the background. Using a microscope, you can make out a smoke signal in the distance. Have fun sight-seeing.
Wow! Did you use a microscope?Smile Smilie
