Yeah but are you as furry and lovable as me??

.... :( No...but you shouldn't pick on me because of it! GOSH! :lol:

Btw, another little tidbit about me in addition to the 6 other jobs I hold, everyone tells me I should be a stand up comedian..apparently I am funny or something?

same here but more of a politically incorrect dry wit about me.

I hear Chopper Harrison puts the Canes down all the time.

if it wasn't for him i would probably have never ventured out to the RBC Center (the ESA at that time). have had some memorable moments from that place.

Just say NO to the Steelers, Browns all the way :lol:

I was so mad when the Browns moved to Baltimore. But became happy when they gave us our dog pound back.

I'll put in my two cents on this thread tomorrow or Thursday.

In the meantime, however, I'm about to head out with Mr. GSBG to visit our business banker (and I'll fill y'all in on the latest on THAT venture shortly). Later tonight, we'll celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary at Fora, an intimate, darkly lit restaurant.

Later, fellow Caniacs! :mrgreen:

SERIOUSLY!!! we don't say it!! idk why you guys think we do... :)

We know you don't say it like that...but aboot is an exaggerated version of what the typical American hears when you guys say 'about'. No worries..because some southern accents make it difficult for me to know whether someone wants a pen, or a pin... :lol: And I am not picking on Southern accents...I love accents! They most definitely make the world an interesting place :-)

Actually i'm not that big of an Eagles fan. I go for the Panthers and Browns. Although my dad is a huge Eagles fan since he lived practically his whole life in PA until we moved to Ohio and then NC.

And cowtown you Canadians do say aboot. There's nothing wrong with that, I actually like it. I love listening to the XM guys on my way to work and they always say aboot.
