I know I'm not very well-liked here already, but i'll go over the edge and say that i adore ddz's posts.
I liked you a lot with the old avatar. Now you grate on and disgust me. Post more mindless, trivial crap, please.
But anyway, I must agree with you on the adoring dizzo thing. I mean, he still annoys/angers me often enough, but I've learned to enjoy that to the point that I actually like the guy... I mean, he is just plain likeable on a certain level (the cutesy niceness and unflappability is itself endearing, aside from being annoying, which I also find endearing), and on another, he's likeable in the John Waters sense... It's a certain sort of hedonism, I guess, indulging in the awfulness of his posts. I'm actually quite surprised Monkeyboy doesn't feel the same way, considering that seems to fit quite well within his sensibility -- I mean, dozzie's posts can be seen as the literary equivalent of Mo's avatars, in a way.
And Effie is beyond compare. I really, really love that dog.
