2/14: I've decided to add this about my sig. It's supposed to be taken with amusement. It's schadenfrued. To the people who say be cheerful and your luck will improve are kind of missing the point. I'm perfectly happy. I just find amusement out of all of this. To the people who realized it was intended to be humorous, good for you.
4/23: I need to give credit where credit is due. My header on my profile is a painting done by my mother that she gave to me for Christmas one year. It was after I nearly had a heart attack when she said she had given it to a bank. She didn't know at the time that it was my favorite. I think I was about six or seven at the time. Since it's still my favorite, I asked her if I could use part of it in my profile and got her permission. So, the credit needs to be given. The painting was made by Suzanne W. my mother.
Five days later: I resized the picture and edited the text which made it even larger. Then I realized that I had been using too high a quality on photoshop. When I lowered that, it made the picture fit within the rules. And now it's even easier to read. I'm so proud.
This has been in my sig for months but I got a pm on Feb. 3, 2006 that my sig was disabled because it was too many bytes. So it stays here until I find a way to keep it readable and within the proper byte size... yeah, that will be a while.
