What's your e-mail sig?

No, really. Just post your sig!

Mine is deadly serious, and has been the same for two months or so:

"No American, no human being, should have to give up her or his
difference in order to be treated equally under the law."--Evan Wolfson, Why
Marriage Matters


My L'Ailee tends to pick really twisted and funny ones, and her current one is so hilarious I'm almost jealous:

Rob: "Bucky...those animals are *endangered*.
Bucky: "Exactly. Their species have a proven track record of being slow and/or stupid to the point where they really have to be considered an easy lunch."
--From "Get Fuzzy"


I think quotations.about.com is a good place for quote-mining, but I usually tend to get mine from life and reading and lyrics and TV. I have quoted everyone from Susan B. Anthony ("I always distrust people who know so much about what God wants them to do to their fellows."), to Ethan Zohn (that sexy curly-haired Survivor winner, who said to another contestant, "Look, you're a bigot and that's okay."), to Mos Def ("I am a fighter and a lover"), to Rita Mae Brown ("I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.") to Juliana Hatfield ("A heart that hurts is a heart that works.").

Where did you get yours?

I don't have one...now you've got me thinking...like the GREEN!

When I worked for the government, they had someone come in and do personality work with us all day. To find out what "colors" we were and hopefully, then use our similaarities and differences to enhance the program. Celebrate! The colors and meanings in a watered down version were:
Green-logical
Orange-Flamboyant, fun, spiritual, woo-woo
Blue-Compassionate
Gold-Rule oriented
Most government employees are pretty gold maybe with a blue thrown in.

I'm not sure that I can remember the name of the group that did it. All I ever heard after that though was "well, that's the ornage in her" like it was a bad thing.

Loved the quote you left on my comments and the comment on SB's blog.

One of my favorites from The Simpsons

"Operator quick, get me the number for 911"

Or from an American English teacher student

"It was an American Tradition like Fathers chasing their children with powertools.

Or from Friends

Joey " you don't have a t.v, What do you point your furniture at"

Mine is "Thank God for the man who put the white lines on the highway"
Song lyrics, Michael Stanley

Mine would be from Dantes Inferno, Abandon all hope ye who enter here... or Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Just checking in to see what condition your condition is in.

You were greatly missed yesterday!

Hope all is well.

P.S. I have no email sig, but you have inspired me.

mine is currently:

"I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is. I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute."
