    Well, here I am. 2001 posts.
    The time has come to shower me with praise. [​IMG] Or just make a smart remark about my nostril. Your call.
    speech...speech...speech...speech
    Aw, shucks....ok.
    I would like to say that it has been an honour and a privilege to be in the company of all you great people over the last few months.
    Since coming here, I've learned so much. Thanks to all of you for that.
    I know it sounds cheesy, but I've also laughed and cried with you. You were there for me when I broke up, you were there on September 11...
    As some of you may know, I was recently the recepient of a little personal attack (I'm not going to elaborate, so don't ask...you either know about it or you don't). To my surprise, this was followed by many emails and PMs, expressing support and kind words. Truth be known, I actually thought the whole incident was hilarious. Nonetheless, I appreciated the sentiment and the support. [​IMG]
    I've also forged some bonds with a few members, some of which I hope to meet someday. You know who you are. [​IMG]
    Finally, just a word of thanks to the people who toil away to make this site run as smoothly as it does. Good job, guys.
    Now, here is a photo of my kitty compadres (thanks to Matthew Chmiel for the webspace). Velcro is the white one. Eddie is the orange one. I'll post a couple more later, just don't want to do too many on the same page.

    A big hug to all of you!

    Congratulations, Rain! Thanks for making the HTF a more interesting and fun place.
    Cute kitties you got there. Now if only we can get you to dye your eyebrows to match your hair... [​IMG]

    Rain, you're a joy to have here at HTF, and I consider you a personal friend. I look forward to your next 2,001 posts with much anticipation. Wishin' all the best!

    And Velcro and Eddie are adorable. Tell me, do they prefer widescreen transfers to P&S?

    Damn, when did Rain post 2001 posts? [​IMG] I remember when Rain first joined the forum and he only had 48 posts or so. [​IMG]
    Glad we didn't scare you away Rain, and I hope to see you at 4002 posts.

    Rain, congrats! I should hit the 2001 mark in a few weeks at the rate I'm going. BTW, sorry to hear about the personal attack - I think I know the thread you're talking about but I didn't see the post in question until a mod had already edited it. Hopefully, the offender won't be back. One of the things I like about the HTF is that the members here are so tolerant of different lifestyles. Not only that, but they're always willing to lend a sympathetic ear when someone is having problems. It's a breath of fresh air from the real world.

    Congratulations on 2001 (now 2003, do you ever stop?) meaningful posts. It's been a pleasure reading them. Now for my smartass nostril remark:

    Has your ex ever said "Kissing Rain is like driving into a two-car garage"?

    Congrats Rain! I've gotten use to seeing your nostril shot everyday. Over 2000 posts is quite an accomplishment. I should have that many in a couple years. [​IMG] Thanks for being a part of the forum.

    Rain,
    Perhaps you should go to photoshop and remove that glare from the painting behind you. It detracts from your nostrils. :p) [​IMG]
    Seriously, congrats on the Millennium-stone. Always enlightening posts, to say the least.
    Bruce

    Oh and thanks to you Rain, I don't smoke anymore![​IMG]
    I didn't hear of the harsh words against you until it was too late, but if I see anything like that I'll stick up for you (the best I can, I'm only armed with a keyboard).[​IMG]

    Rain,
    Congrats on the 2K milestone. You definitely make the HTF a better place to hang out and discuss films. And thanks again for the great cinematography tournament.
    I checked out your other photo. Interesting to see the Dr. Jekyll version, or is it Mr. Hyde? [​IMG]
    Cheers,
    Walter.
