Aw shucks, Monty. I'm envious of your witty and often hysterical comments. You are my inspiration!

gryhnd51, I have so much fun working out the cryptograms, but I only do so in between writing difficult chapters in my books. I need to clear my thoughts, and like someone else had mentioned, I only started this because I wanted to read all the hysterical comments. I also learn a lot from them, like terrific editing tips and individual political commentary. (I know some people don't care for it, but the many different perspectives make politics seem quite interesting.)

WVWoman, I hate the idea of dating myself, but I'm certain that like fashion, our old favorite phrases will one day cycle back into every day conversation. However, I really thought "groovy, baby" would stick around after Austin Powers.

Fascinating thread to read... I just wasted so much time... My name was inspired by my favorite ancient Irish hero, Dearmid O'Dyna. And by my actual name.

SusanODyna, I just found out my family came from Ireland--well, it was traced back to the mid-1600's. I need to learn about my ancient Irish roots, and I'm going to start with Dearmid O'Dyna!
