I have given a surprise star to a member, but I will carry that members identity to my grave with me. And no, I did not give Botto his star.

Those normally only occur in back hair and on women here in Texas.

Note to whoever bought it:

One of the last times I bought a star for someone, I prefererred to remain anonymous, so then on the inevitable thread, some other Foo asshat took credit for it. You must decide whether the gratification of an anonymous good deed outweighs the mortification of someone else potentially taking credit for it. Just sayin'.

As to not make Kris EvenmorePistofferson. I didn't give you the little red star. But how's the pipe?

Although Brian and I took a vow to never tell, what I will say is that no one who has posted on this thread thus far is responsible.

Think Ryanf, but with bizarre real world issues that were 500% more entertaining. MERTON, though, is missed by almost all that ever read one of his crazed threads.

Thanks for the PM Donna. I'm sorry to hear that Brian got so drunk that he bought botto a red star. That explains why he has left the forums for awhile. It sounds like it was a much needed respite.

i never found the former to be entertaining, so does taht mean that merton was 500% more entertaining than absolute boredom?
