But just using a flower pot is boring.

I totally forgot to reply, sorry! I’m doing pretty good. I just graduated with my bachelors and quit my dishwashing job, so now I’m just babysitting and doing a work-from-home music internship thing. How is your thesis going?

She left many of us behind. She left us heartbroken. And though we cry now there'll come a time when we'll laugh. Because we'll see her again someday. We'll be with her in heaven.

Maybe your lack of answering the question from three years ago made people avoid the topic? ;)

What is your favourite smiley and why?

I haven’t been on here in ages, but as soon as I saw the email notification that someone posted on this thread, I knew I had to come say hi! My question is, how are you?

hi marvin.

if you had to take the stage at carnegie hall in new york city and perform before a sold-out crowd, what would you do that would leave them talking for years to come? personally, i would probably just take my shoes and socks off and run back and forth making spaceship noises for about 15 minutes and then i would solicit questions from the crowd. this is because my q&a thread is dead and it makes me sad, so i need this crowd's validation. anyway, looking forward to your answer in 2024!

hello stevey.

if i had no time to prepare, i would probably recite Ozymandius by P.B. Shelley. it's the only poem i still remember. i can do a very dramatic rendition of it, i think.

Woohoo! The smart move is to set people up not to expect lightning fast replies from you so they're pleasantly surprised when the answers only take months instead of years. :yes:

I really would love to use the dancing smiley in other places, but alas, it just seems to be here on the ToO.
