The Day in Quotes: Tuesday, July 8th

Anyone there?

However.........this is not a tiny site, nor is it run by a couple of harried techies. Etsy has a staff of 60, and while I understand that fewer of them work on weekends....they shouldn't be understaffed at an hour of any day.

Get the sensation
Some people LIKE the feeling of having their knickers in a twist?

No plastic surgery required
Maybe if I buy that shirt, it'll enhance my mosquito bites.

lol...anytime a boy uses "OMG..."

it's funny to me too, but I've been here a while and am old and jaded in the ways of the forum.

If you were quoted, congratulations and thanks! You can find your

I was reading around in the forums, and sort of started inventing a drinking game.
