You have to ask?  Well, I guess we are all in the right place then.  ;D

The last four digits of my phone number used to be 3862. My daughter and her friends figured out that 3862 spelled dumb. After that, the number was easy for people to remember.

I thought X-Writer, at first, was my ex.  :o 

I thought Fiona really looked like Dido.

I thought MWC's clocks were way off.

Whew! Talk about dumbness! You folks have made me feel better.

I wish I  could lament about being dumb for only one day.........for me, it goes on, and on-!  ;D

I wouldn't worry Leigh, I think it's fairly well documented on here why I won the 'International Numbty of the year' award back in 1989/1990. And nothing has changed, I still suffer from the same problem I had back then. I think I always will. :-\

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - open throttle in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming : "Woo Hoo, what
a ride!"

I, too thought Fiona looked like Dido, then just a look-alike. At least these dumb things we think and do make great entertainment later when we've stopped blushing. So something good comes out of our default setting. I've gone to town on the bus wearing 2 different style shoes. I only noticed on the way home while I was sitting at the front at those high seats that face each other. I think this may belong in the Embarrassing Moment thread. I think I'll write a list of embarrassing and dumb things I've done and said. They're bound to be enough to make a book. This is after all, a writers circle.

I had to go and look up who on earth Dido was (and I'm still not sure - though she does take a nice picture).

Look at all of the stock photo avatars that you can choose, provided by MWC, under your 'edit profile' options-! (under 'Forum Profile Info') 
You'll see lots of people on here, that you 'recognise'... :)

Nah, I prefer to think that this forum is inhabited by so many drop-dead gorgeous writers  ;D

Chillies, at least you don't have to worry about people getting confused with anyone called Willies. :)

And Lynn's story about her telephone number was interesting, wanting me to rush off and translate mine into words. But I don't think that makes it easy to remember, because then you have to start counting on your fingers to find the letter that equals the number.

Elitsa, one of my favourite mottoes is 'The longest journey starts with a single step,' which is similar to yours.

I'm dumb at arithmetic particularly, and applied geometry. For some reason other areas of maths are okay (or were in school, can't say about now).

I like what CrystalWizard said in the multiple personalities thread " Our characters are all faucets of our imagination." I think I prefer this. I can't do the phone number thing, two of mine have blanks where the letters should be  :'(

Crystal Wizard may have meant to type 'facets' but I rather like the idea of 'faucets' of our imagination, taps just waiting to be turned on so the imagination can flow freely ;-)
