Back then forums were different we felt we were more likely to get a decent reply if they thought we we were a girl. One of us was!

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Whats surprising that one of you were a girl?

Yes, but they always get more attention from the guys. We argued about a username. They did not want my choice. She chimed in, so I said let's use your name them. She said she did not want to use her real name so out of exasperation I said, "then pick a name, let's stop wasting time!!!!!" The rest is history.

I did watch that video. But I have never been in love with an Angela since I was 8 years old. She was 16 so it did not work out.

Anyway, that talking angela is the only angela I can think of.

Yes, lived upstairs from me. Dark hair, dark eyes and so bubbly. She used to babysit for me once and awhile. I had read about the younger guy and the older woman thing so I figured this is what they meant. I was wrong.

She was the girl who lived upstairs and got away. She let a little thing like me being 8 stand in the way.
