Noders I have met, more or less in order
Momomom, Doyle, AudieMcCall, and IWhoSawTheFace.
Noders I have spoken to on the phone (not including those above)
Cool things noders have sent or given me
GrouchyOldMan: A lovely miniature of Cape Hatteras North, along with a note and a few ducats. How did he know I like lighthouses? Genius!
Segnbora-t: A unique (and funny!) postcard. Why can't I find postcards like that? Oh, yes, and a great Christmas card, too!
Momomom: Some gorgeous live plants: chives and (semi-endangered) wild ginger. Also a great tour of her FANTASTIC plantings(!), a nice frosty coffee & yummies, a rooting of basil now growing in a planter, and very generous offerings of assorted vegetation. (Too late in the year to transplant, now, but I am very grateful.)
AudieMcCall: One autographed play program, suitable for framing, along with a free pass to see a truly world-class play! (As well as e-mails which generally consist of a generous, hilarious mix of both (friendly) abuse and encouragement.)
My 2005 secret Santa, Diabolic, sent me an absolutely gorgeous mala made of carnelian, an I Ching coin, and a great card written in E2 writeup style, with each writeup telling me about what each thing was. Fabulous!!! Absolutely made my day. Many thanks and hugs to Diabolic ! You rock!
Scratchings from the catbox
IWhoSawTheFace: There is no such thing as a bad job, only a bad attitude.
haruspex: email google and tell em you're from the typo death squad
golFUR: Maylith, Maylith, quite unrhymable - how does your nodegel grow? With sterling Ch!ngs and (idea)(thing)s and daylogs all in a row.
gleeme: gleeme speculates on whether Maylith is involved with the BDSM scene... she has all the makings of a good domina. This speculation has been seconded by doyle.
Simulacron3: "dragging your soul through muck": excellent expression. I'm stealing it.
La petite mort: I love the cat box, part doctors office, boxing ring, kindergarden and shrinks couch.
Halspal: I only ever learn things from irksome people.
JohnnyGoodyear: JohnnyGoodyear marvels at the monolith of minutiae that is our merry Maylith.
Maylith: Why does the combo of me and cabinets sound odd?
drownzsurf: you are such a Ma, Maylith.
doyle: May, you have a lovely way of making small things seem dangerous, while daring to poke dangerous things right in the snout. I think this is a good thing. I think.
(spied on Master Villain's homenode)
amnesiac: heh this sounds like a conversation from one of those books like 'where Angels fear to tread' and stuff. "Oh my dearest Maylith, the tomatoes are in full bloom, my trip to India may be hastened".
Simulacron3: Maylith has pushed the Make E2 Crazy button.
The Custodian: Actually, just "antonomasia" (I misspelled it) but a pedantic english major once told me it was "inductive antonomasia."
Lord Brawl: Surely Batman's pointy bits would tear the clingfilm?

This section comprises links to nodes written by others. These are not necessarily the best nodes on these subjects -- I've passed over many, such as most of Sneff's recipes and mauler's delightful history nodes, not to mention just about everything written by anthropod... geeze I could go on and on here... momomom, lometa, iceowl, doyle, JGY... many others. But anyways, these are some nodes that have caught my eye.
