Hello  Reply with quote  

I happen to be one of the longest term lurkers... About 6 years now. After going to the book signing in Austin I felt I should finally suck it up and become a registered user. I've enjoyed reading both Chris' work and all of your posts. The board has been as interesting as most TV during that time. I'm jsut hoping that I can be a worthy contributor.

On to the other aspects of introduction.

My name is Joe and i work in horticulture(common occupation for Joes I believe) at the Houston Zoo. I have been aware of the Dorothy Parker quote for some time, but having the AG remind me of it in Austin was pretty dang cool. I've worked in zoos for the past 13 years and find the climate in Houston awesome for most zoo horticulture endeavors.
I'm originally from a tiny town in Upstate New York and do have quite an appreciation of Apple and Strawberry Rhubarb Pies. Will bring the most requested.
As for naked book sitting, I feel our 80 degree weather, in February, could be accommodating.

Enjoy, and make sure you post lots to make up for time spent lurking! Laughing

Hey Joe, welcome to the sunlight.

Random question: Do you know a lady that works at the reptile house named Judith?

Fun has arrived! Joe, (henceforth to be called 'Joe the plant guy' to avoid confusion) I know you probably weren't a B-B-B-bush supporter (henceforth to be referred to as 'You-know-who' or 'He-who-must-not-be-named) but I still must check your deepest recesses for Ann Coulter contamination. Key Lime Pie will make things go much smoother. Welcome (henceforth to be referred to as 'Bend over'.)

Very Happy Welcome!

Have some cocoa, it'll warm you for the strip search & goes great with pie-
bring as many kinds of pie as you like, just make sure that one is key lime... Wink

That's hilarious. I went to HS with her and haven't seen her in like 20 years. A friend I asked about her said "There's a 95% chance she's still working in the reptile house at the Houston zoo".

Joe, all's well as long as you don't pick on the farmer's tan too much.
