Profiles and pictures?

OK, I admit, I am the nosiest person around. So, I go checking out folks' profiles, and there's nothing there, or hardly anything. C'mon, how about some pictures, so we can see what you look like :-?

(hope these smileys come out right, need preview...)

So, Tom, you have moved over here to another thread to annoy me with your smileys and italics and exclamation points. And encouraging others to boot. I'm going to start giving fines, a la gpanda.

Don't worry, the novelty for me has worn off. Back to plain ordinary Business English. What you do have to worry about though is that my photo is up on my profile! And BTW, I just noticed I was not the "Be first to reply" here (story of my life). Congratulations LAL, you were, you're a wiener I mean winner!

regards - tom
ps - what's a "gpanda"

Hey Mike, I live in Fullerton, near Calif State Fullerton. Hawthorne is not that far away! Carla here was trying to arrange a LA GTG in March. Don't know how that stands, did you see it? I'll email her. Regardless, let's do GTG sometime, compare notes on Sabi Sand camps, ISOs, swap tales of photos that-got-away, next safari etc. And, anyone else in the neighborhood?

regards - tom

Yeah, I met Carla last year, it was fun meeting. I do live near her. I saw about the GTG and if its in march, I can probably do it. It you look at my profile, you will see my email address and you can email with your information. Yes it would be nice to get together no matter what. I live near LAX.
So far as I know, no one else that has been there, but I do know people who want to go!

Great! I added a picture only to discover that, if you add an image smaller than the exact pixel dimensions listed, it will stretch your image to fit, rather than leaving empty space around it! So my image is looking horribly pixelated!

WORSE STILL, I can't see any way of removing it other than replacing it with another picture!

Your pictures are wonderful! - kavey, I think that pixelated look really goes with the spirit of your picture. Maybe you could photoshop it to make it bigger to fit?

Mike, that looks like a very satisfied smile.

Aknards, where are you? looks like a salt pan?

Elizabeth, LOVE that iguana!

Femi, what a great shot of a (your?) cat - a perfect pose

and Tom, is that your great white hunter pose?

One of the tags in the Lounge is for GTG's. I'm going to one in DC where there will be all kinds of Fodorites, and so far, no one from Africa - so, Tom and Mike you could go to the Asia one, and inject some African something...

Yeah Mom, the great white hunter!! (Arrives on the kill scene long after the bones are bleached white!!). But anyway, does convey that I'm a manly man, does it not?!?!

Good idea about the Asia GTG, maybe Mike would like to meet there. And anyone else (Carla?). Anyone know date? Not listed in top 25. I did search on Asia forum for "gtg" and nothing came back. So, what else is new?

regards - tom
