Well, it had to be done, didn't it? And since this is both the first and last post, I have won. Thank you all.
Hope you have a good time Dez, I look after the prize.
Don't worry; I'll look after it for you.
Thanks, but there's really no need.
Oh, but I insist.
No Sir, I keep the prize
No, Madam, I insist. It would be most ungentlemanly of me not to do so.
Yes I know, but its not necessary. And I don't tell it to anyone, so you don't loose face.
Oh, it's okay, I don't mind that it isn't necessary. It's just a matter of good will. I keep the Prize.
With a little bit of good will you can leave the prize to me. Thank you :)))
With even more good will, I'll keep the Prize thanks.
Ok now I have to get serious: Denmark will be champion of Euro2012 soccer and I win the prize.
Gee... I didn't know you were a professional footballer!
She has many secrets, Moff.
Thank you for your good wishes. It was just part two of a family drama, and I am hoping there will not be a part three. I also went to a specialist at Royal Brisbane hospital, and I now have appointments for pre-admission and some minor surgery. They wouldn't give me an anaesthetic here because of my heart and other issues. I feel more confident at a larger hospital. They were all so lovely to me as well.
Now, I don't really know who will win the soccer. The psychic octopus died and left us all in the lurch.
I love sport competitions and I'm looking forward to EM 2012. However it doesn't care, and apart from this I keep the prize, explain to him the offside rule, when is a foul a foul or the referee is only fussy and so on. I have a lot of work preparing the prize for the coming event.
I don't know how you think you're doing that, young lady. He's locked away in my wardrobe.
Welcome back Dez! But I'm afraid you're wrong about the prize. What you have locked away in your cupboard is the psychic octopus.
By the way, you are incorrect about the editing tools I use - the guess on my "van gogh" image was not right. I don't possess the one you named. I use smoke and mirrors, actually. Which is why you now have the very late octopus, and I have the prize. And Gesine has a delusional state.
Hmm.. interesting. I've tried using Pixelbender (it's a free plug-in from Adobe labs) and it produces results very like your image. But as for the smoke - it's evidently got in your eyes, as the prize is with me.
Is it for Photoshop? I don't have Photoshop and a lot of modern filters won't work with PhotoImpact, although some do.
I've never used PhotoImpact, so can't really comment, but it does sound like Corel and Adobe have been experimenting along the same lines.
I used to have Photoshop Elements, but now we have Linux here. The GIMP is a good tool, and Photoshop is the only thing running on Windows surface I miss a little bit.
I now have proof positive that I am the winner in this game. Even the Belgians are shouting my praises, although I'm a little annoyed that they overestimated my age.
So you're only 654?
Why, you remembered! When am I getting my birthday present?
