You're welcome. I do not agree with people who say you can't truly be friends with people on the internet. Sure, maybe if it is just someone you don't know that you added to Facebook or Twitter and never correspond with, but that is not how real Cheezfriends or other internet friends are. We DO correspond, we get to know each other. We 'talk', we laugh, we cry, we share, we support and encourage, smile, grieve, honor, learn each other's quirks and weirdness and humor and interests and pet peeves. In some ways we can know each other more than some people in our 'real life' because when we are here we are really paying attention to our friends. Finding out what is going on with them, focusing on them and doing it at our own pace & theirs. Many people tend to reveal more of their true selves on the internet because they feel they have a buffer, that it's safer. They aren't put on the spot or in awkward or socially difficult situations. They have time to think about what they want to say, how they really feel and want to interact with each person or group. Not to mention the fact that years ago people got to know each other and formed relationships through written correspondence all the time. Face to face visits were few and far between before modern transportation. Plus I am biased since I met my husband on the internet and we are happily working on our 2nd decade of marriage. :) I have been best friends with a lady from Canada, whom I've never met in person, for over 15 years. We know practically everything about each other, our families and lives, and I know things about her true self and deepest feelings that nobody else knows. Test it out some time with your internet friends. Do a little "how well do you know me quiz" of RL peeps and online peeps and see who truly 'gets' you. :)
Thank you http://cheezburger.com/8340328704 Here's a couple of links if you would like to read a little more about Sparky: http://rosshines.blogspot.com/2008/08/meet-sparky.html http://rosshines.blogspot.com/2008/10/meet-sparky-again.html
Thank you for the congrats. Actually that's the second time I used that joke on a LOL. Months ago I uploaded a pic of two elk in the water and put that caption on it. I don't even think anyone favorited it. I decided to use the joke again with one of their pictures and the rest is history.
Thank you for the congrats. When I recycle LOLs, I got back to page 50 (at least) of my LOLs. Then I check ones that I thought were funny, but nobody favorited (or maybe just one or two). I then do it again. This gives my current set of homies a chance to see stuff I made in 2010-2011 that only a handful of peeps saw. It also gives me a chance to correct any misspellings or add some color to the texts. I saw a LOL someone had made about recycling LOLs and thought it was a grat idea.
