    Hello S. Hmmm. Um, so...where's the forest?
  4. Great! haha Seriously... three times? He should be banned forever. Yup. Seems worse than immature.
  5. Ooooooooo. One for The Slang Thread.

  7. *coughColombiacough* In other languages we call it Columbia ! Did someone mention Columbia Colombia Columbia... And the World Cup?
  8. I love watching whichever ones I can catch. Something freeing about your country not being in the match & not rooting for either side - just watching for the love of the sport - the game itself. Like when someone asked me what I was watching & I said "Uruguay vs. Some other country." (Ghana or Chile or...)
  9. Company confuses Barack Obama with Chris Smalling on England team mug set. Wholesale Clearance UK Getty Images By Sean Leahy June 23, 2014 10:37 AM Dirty Tackle It's been a forgettable World Cup for England on the pitch. Off the pitch, one company is having a forgettable few days as well, as they had hoped to cash in on a successful tournament for The Three Lions, as the Sunday Express notes. Among the English World Cup merchandise an unnamed British company had created featuring the likenesses of the English soccer team were a set of mugs that included one glaring error. You could purchase a Steven Gerrard or Joe Hart or Wayne Rooney, among others, but if you’re a big Chris Smalling fan, you might notice something a tad off about his appearance. U.S. President Barack Obama does not play center back for Manchester United or the English national team. Realizing its mistake, the company turned to online re-seller Wholesale Clearance UK to dump the error-filled inventory. The item description explains what happened: The Dorset company in question (whose blushes we shall protect for now....maybe!) was given the seemingly easy job of sourcing royalty free pictures of each England squad player to use on the England mugs – along with other accompanying items such as England coasters, England mouse mats etc. They passed this onto to their young, bright eyed and bushy tailed new apprentice. The designs were proofed and signed off by the Boss, who had clearly had a heavy night with the lads playing poker and before he’d had his first vat of coffee the following morning. Due to our ongoing commitment to help local companies get their products noticed, last Wednesday 2,000 of each of the England items came into the warehouse. We eagerly unpacked them and on close inspection it turned out that the Chris Smalling cup had Barack Obama’s head on instead of Chris’s. The apprentice claims that he used that well known search engine, Google, to source the pictures. The thing is he’s more of a rugby fan and not very clued up on football. Suffice to say that when he Google image searched ‘Chris Smalling’ he copied the first picture he liked the look of and the result was that the President of the United States has ended up on an England cup instead of the English defender. So, if you would like to purchase 2,000 Obama England national team mugs, it will run you £2,000. They're bound to be collector's items by now. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/soccer-dirty-tackle/company-confuses-barack-obama-with-chris-smalling-on-england-team-mug-set--photo-143719664.html
  10. A great cause. (RED): cool. Bono deserves the award. Some great photos here. I especially like the 1st one & the one where Bono has his hands in the air. I really like the name of the award, it has a great logo, and the set (the backdrop) for the award was really classy, beautiful, artistic, & functional all at the same time. Great.
  11. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for posting, Fernanda & Cam.

    so feminine

    Beautiful. Serene. Simple. Delicate - yet powerful in its own way. Like a meditation. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Apparently I can post comments in the gallery again. (At least for now. Hoping this stays.)

  18. Keep the faith. : )

  19. You're going in the right direction. Let's make it the 125 most active members over the past few months! You're in the drawing, boopsie. And while we're at it, let's increase the number of guitars being given away to 50, & make 40 of them reserved for giving away amongst the 125 zootopes.
  20. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that it's sad. But I gave it 4 stars because it's the truth. Sometimes life can hurt. Especially if a person is relatively sensitive, if a person has a sensitive heart.
  21. Wow, Chris. Your drawing, to me, is how a person feels after arguing with ('having words with') a loved one. For me, you posting this drawing - and what you said under it - is very timely. One of my loved ones has an anger problem. Expects other people to understand anything & everything he says all the time w/out being able to ask him to clarify anything, etc. Otherwise he can suddenly 'lose it.' He can be the sweetest person, but then suddenly out of the blue he can get very unreasonable & angry, & become the most unpleasant person w/ the worst attitude. Very unfair. Today, that's exactly what happened to a simple conversation w/ him. Totally not my fault. After this happened today, he left & drove away. The other person there, who had not been in the conversation, told me she had 'felt it coming' b4 it happened. She said things had been going too well - that things had been more peaceful than usual. I understood what she meant. The calm b4 the storm. But I told her there was no need to even 'feel it coming' because that's how he is - I've finally realized that - I told her that it's Always going to happen again. Sooner or later. I finally really realized that w/in just the past few months or so. *Sigh.* He always says he's sorry afterwards, but...
  22. Wow. So, I want to see a special-edition fender w/ U2 lyrics in script all over it! And a copy of Edge's & Bono's signatures on the guitar! And who knows, maybe Larry's & Adam's, too. Of Course the guitar has to be available in red - and some of the lyrics included on the guitar definitely must say "with a red guitar on fire, desire." I make a motion that the board approve this idea. And to promote the whole thing, of COURSE there needs to be at LEAST 25 guitars available for giveaway w/ the REAL autographs on them! And 15 of them should definitely be reserved for giveaway to zoo members only!! And none of that having to 'create a Picasso painting in an art contest' stuff to enter for them, either. Just a random drawing from amongst the 500 zoo members who've been the most active over the past few months or so. Or the 250 most active! I think that includes everyone in this thread. Now who seconds the motion? Good enough! The motion is carried! We'll expect to see this soon then!
  23. 'Happy Mother's Day' to the nation of Poland! I've visited there & remember w/fondness the nice people there. :)
