Newest ACE! @AvocadoDog

Conversationalist

Haw!  I didn't even know this was a thing!  I saw that little red splotch by my user image and I thought "Time to wipe down the screen again and stop eating in front of the laptop, you slob!" and then I thought "Put on your readers, you dope! It's a little ace icon!" and then I realized "The fact that you know what 'readers' are and suddenly have countless pairs around the house, you're probably on AARP and have been bestowed a high honor.  ...You bum!"

 

Anyway, I'm delighted. Thank you.  And thank you all for the well wishes.

Avocado Dog,  Welcome as a newly minted ACE contributor.  Humor and totally random trivia is a winning combo in my book.  Avocados are my favorite food ( next to dark chocolate, of course )  I think it's my California upbringing.  How did you come up with avocado dog?  Christine

"How did you come up with avocado dog?"

 

It's from something Huell Howser said once. As someone from California, I'll bet you know of Huell!

Viewed some of Huell Howser's clips, what was a wonderful lovable guy and definitely a goodwill ambassador to California. Christine.

@AvocadoDog since you are a cesspool of useless knowledge, what's a random fun fact you know?

Conversationalist

Hmm...Well, here's something: You know that sort of iconic 80s look — black and white stripes, squiggles, bold colors, geometric shapes...?  It's called "Memphis" or "Memphis Design" after "Memphis Milano," the Italian design group that developed it. I never knew it had a name, and then I happened upon a book about it.

 

There. That's pretty random. Fun results may vary.
