Can I just say how much I love our community members?
I received the message below from Dawn Lillis, one of our community members, and I want to share the post and my responses to it (in bold below) with all of you. As Voltaire (later quoted by George Burns in Oh, God) once said: “God is a comedian playing to an audience that’s afraid to laugh.” And I want to add….”at ourselves.”
Additional Information: This isn’t really an issue….just an observation.
Has anyone else noticed that when we receive email from you, at least on gmail, the sender is “Bringing Back The Old Ho.” 😉 Hi Dawn…I laughed for 5 minutes when I read this as will Chris Foley, our webmaster, when he sees this. That is indeed an unfortunate contraction, yes? I am tempted to do about 5 wildly inappropriate Larry David jokes here but I think I should just shut up and say thanks for noticing–and we’ll definitely work on it!
I have to say…I giggle whenever I see it, but is that really what we are hoping to accomplish here? LOL. Uh, no, that wasn’t exactly my intention.. somebody else will have write that book!
Perhaps there’s a shorter solution for “Sender” that would be more appropriate.Well, it would be difficult to find one that’s more inappropriate so I sure hope so!
Thanks for creating this site, Stephen. My boyfriend and I love this idea. He’s a screenwriter and has always watched “Old Hollywood” films. Since we’ve been together, he’s opened my eyes to the wonders of the old classic movies.I’m so, so pleased and grateful to hear that feedback. Thank you both. I heartily recommend that you both see The King’s Speech this holiday season. It’s so incredibly well-written and so Old Hollywood that I think you’ll both love it.
We’re also members of SCC and enjoy that thoroughly as well. And, again, thank you. The missions of The Spiritual Cinema Circle and Bringing Back the Old Ho…uh..Hollywood..are incredibly synergistic and I am passionately committed to them both.
Angel Blessings to All,
And to you too, Dawn. This is just so much fun and we’ve only just begun!
