I found what I was looking for, after 2+ years, including an answer to my very first AskMe post! For posterity, the answer to this question
, and the answer to this question
is "Happy Go Lively" which is available here
I'd love to be able to update my own askme posts, even if they were from years ago. I understand that the discussion has to end at some point, but if I found what I believe to be the definitive answer (since it was my question, after all), it would help those who come searching later on to keep the answer and the question together.

Ten days have passed since I posted this thread
. My postman is cranky with me, my friends think I'm crazy, I have about around 30 lbs of new catalogs [c. 200kb pics, flickr, 1, 2]
, and a reinvigorated appreciation for all y'all (not that it has ever been in jeopardy)... [more inside]

I'd like to say thanks to MIko
, who not only just reached 2000 AskMe comments, but also routinely clogs up my "contact activity" feed with Best Answers.

A few months shy of three years later, I'm still knocked breathless by this thread
. I've been rereading each story over this weekend, and it's really had me thinking about echoes and effects, human goodness, and the astonishing strength of human resilience. I'm really grateful to everyone who shared such meaningful and vulnerable moments of their lives. Mefi is one hell of a community.

Just wanted to call attention to an AskMe that really takes you on a roller-coaster ride -- opening with sadness
, stopping off at beauty
, providing lots of warm fuzzies
throughout, stopping off for a surprising dollop of disgust
on the way to inexplicable hilarity
(ymmv), and ending up being a great reference point for anybody in a relationship.

First of all, thank you to #1, pb, et al. for all of the new toys, it's not even Christmas!
I'm wondering now, if it's worth the effort (or possible) to include the "Bold", "Italics" and "links" buttons to MeFiMail and much more importantly, to AskMe.

I just want to thank the MeFites who faithfully answer all the book questions that get asked here, like this one
And very special thanks for those who include an Amazon link. I know not everyone supports them, but I don't usually buy from Amazon; I export my wishlist to a spreadsheet via Librarything, and take it whenever I go used bookshopping. Thus, I've had many, many hours of great reading thanks to AskMeFi. Having good books to read means a lot to me, and I just wanted to thank you all. [more inside]

I'm not big on doing the call-outs, but when the question poster Mach3avelli
asks a question and provides a big ol' great bunch of examples right in the question, well, just wanted to thank them for the thread
, and hope it makes the sidebar (which is NOT why I'm doing this, by the way).
Thanks also to some of the stellar suggestions the hive has posted, and non sum qualis eram's
description of Rossini. It's so easy to snark on people online, but it's good to thank someone when they do something nice as well. Y'all have almost always been so helpful, and I learn something new here everyday. Music is incredibly important to me - as I suspect so many of us! - so having a new playlist of music to investigate is a treat, and yet another example of why this was one of the best $5 purchases I've ever made in my life. Thanks all.
*group hug, passing of Kleenex, etc. etc.*

under cool questions with a couple really cool answers
from just the right people. Despite the obligatory "this is a bad idea" warnings.

"Long tailed awesomeness" - or AskMe brings the cheese in. In November 2005 I uploaded this
question to Ask. In September 2006 I uploaded this
song to Music. This morning I recieved this
image and a nice note.

A few days ago, I had posted something on AskMe, and had got some wonderful replies from my fellow Mefites. I wanted to acknowledge them here, along with the community as a whole (for doing the great work that it does), and say how glad I am to be a pat of it.:)
Thank you MeFi!

is why I love Metafilter. To me, it has all the makings of a classic AskMe. An honest query about an obscure topic, multiple knowledgeable responses, an offer to experiment, and an idea for lunch tomorrow!

I note with happiness that ikkyu2 has quietly returned to AskMe, dispensing the good oil as he goes. Since he doesn't have an email in profile: welcome back.

A valentine to Ask MetaFilter or if you prefer, an unplanned side-effect of cites.

is a one-man AskMeFi machine today, even more so than most days. At the moment, every single "fantastic answer"
is one of his, and well-deserved. Outstanding work. Thanks.
