chat room poll  
Ok, there was moderate interest in the possibility of a weekly online chat group (which I am fully sold on tinychat for, as I cannot guarantee everybody has MUSH/AIM/Gchat access but I'm pretty darned sure everybody reading this has a web browser) with a 'difficulties of weight loss bitch & moan' theme. So with that in mind, a poll to see what might be the most compatible day and time to do that. (Probably I should wait to post this tomorrow, but I'll make a pointer to it or something.)

The day most convenient for a scheduled chat would be:

Sunday
9(36.0%)
Monday
3(12.0%)
Tuesday
1(4.0%)
Wednesday
3(12.0%)
Thursday
2(8.0%)
Friday
1(4.0%)
Saturday
6(24.0%)

The least convenient day would be:

Sunday
0(0.0%)
Monday
5(20.0%)
Tuesday
3(12.0%)
Wednesday
3(12.0%)
Thursday
3(12.0%)
Friday
5(20.0%)
Saturday
6(24.0%)

The time/zone most likely to work for me would be:

8am Pacific / Noon Eastern / 5pm GMT-ish
6(24.0%)
Noon Pacific / 4pm Eastern / 9pm GMT-ish
19(76.0%)

It might in theory be a good idea to schedule two chat windows a week to accommodate scheduling conflicts

Yes
24(92.3%)
No
2(7.7%)

Ticky boxes are my friend!

Yes
27(87.1%)
No
1(3.2%)

NB: A friend of mine named her cat Ticky after ticky boxes. :)

Your friend is very very silly. :)

OTOH, if I didn't know it was named after ticky boxes, I wouldn't find 'Ticky' *all* that strange a name for a cat, as I often call my kitty cats ticky tacs. So. :)

Oh, my friend is very, VERY silly. She's awesome, though, totally brilliant.

And I will not divulge the array of names I have for my cats. I'm glad John doesn't think I'm a total nutcase because of it.

They do collect names, don't they. The most entertaining one (given the response of the audience) is when Mustard is being an ass - Whereupon he is called "Hey! You, Orange, with the face."

My husband finds this perplexing because he is also Orange, with the face.

I laughed out loud. I hope your husband's a redhead like me.

I often call my cats Catface.

PITA is the favorite of the names my family has had for our various cats through the years. It's an acronym, and if one puts their mind to it, they can usually extrapolate the full name. (Especially if I give the first word - pain.)

This is the kitty who is usually to the immediate left of my computer chair much of the day - the perfect position for me to lean down and give scritchins.

I would need your time zone to calculate how many hours we have in between. Usually with the USA I have about 7-8 hours difference in time zones, which makes the perfect days Saturday and Sunday for me.

PS: What will we chat about?
