Whaaaa!!!

Being male, I assumed that when, at Eeyore's, a woman wandered up to me and said that while she owned a didjeredoo, and it was actually from Australia, she didn't know how to play it, and maybe someone would come over to her house and help her learn to play, I was being hit on. Butterfly was of the impression that, being male, I *always* assumed I was being hit on, even when someone might just have wandered over to a complete stranger to arrange a didj lesson. A brief, lively conversation on the gender dynamics of being hit on and responding to such followed, Badger chiming in.

I forget the actual conversational thread, but we came up with a lovely conspiracy of ex's who trade photos of their still-significant others to orchestrate stalking and general misery--"here's Luke, he broke up with me six months ago and my life is over. If you see him, please try to strike up a relationship with him, dump him, and give me the location where I can pick up the pieces." "Bobby put out a restraining order on me last August, but here's his address, please help." That sort of thing.

"Sort of a Hands Across America," I said.

"Yes," added Butterfly. "Woeful Hands Across America."

"Or maybe 'Wronged Hands Across America.'"

Long pause.

"WHAA?"

When we caught our breaths, proposals for the WHAA website began in earnest. Butterfly had a great idea for a slogan, which I can't remember :( Mine was "We're here for you because he's not." Very hard to stop laughing that morning.

Perhaps it should be Wronged Hearts Actoss All America which would make it WHAAA and slightly less subtle but fun :) And my sloagan was "Because we know that you can't move on until he can't move on." We really ought to do the website but the only websites I've done so far are yahoo geocities (yes, I know, there's a frist time for everything) though that might work to use.

Ai internet domain

According to http://www.godaddy.com (a domain registrar of decent repute), WHAAA.ORG is available. If you can scrounge a spare machine, I can set up a web server for you, that you could host yourself. Email me privately, and I can explain more.
