Very cool. You should give yourselves new monikers at the start of each calendar year, just to keep things interesting. :)

They're all just a bunch of purple people eaters :lol:

Though...in my head...I think of them as the purple squad :shhh:

By the way, I just figured out the meaning of your user name. Duh, it only took me how many months to notice the anagram. You should do another anagram or partial anagram for your New Year's name change, if you so choose. Elslurs, Ursslel, Slursel...hey, I like Slursel. It sounds like the Slurpies people get at 7-Eleven (not me, I stick to the flavored coffee :lol: )

@bookowlie Thank you for your help with so many things, and most of all for being a friendly face! Well actually the owl has kind of a scowl, but you're friendly. :)

Great choice for MOTM! :D

Thanks! Sorry about the Owl with a Scowl. :) I am fairly techno-challenged and this owl was easier to upload. Some of the cooler choices didn't fit within the pixel parameters.

Thanks Gali! If you and Scott keep complimenting me, my crown might fall off from the excitement. :)
