Thumbs up The Classy Joana

It's *cough* no secret that I've had some spats here (and will likely have more). In PM/e-mail communication with Admins in the past, I clearly acknowledged that I'm not an example of a "model poster" (if such a thing exists) often between being very flip OR super serious.

So I thought of something based on Ashley Harkleroad's wellknown "WWJD" bracelet. That this would be a more PP (Peaceful Place) if ppl would think another version of WWJD B4 getting in someone's face: What Would Joana Do?

Here's someone in the same age group as most of you, who lived thru an ugly war in the Balkans, but never has a bad word for anyone here (that I can recall). She has clear favorites (mostly Serbs like Ana Ivanovic) but doesn't flame other players either.

The final confirmation of how special a person she is came on Tuesday, leading in part to my "unresigning". There was a "We Miss You, DD" type thread for Bri that turned rather ugly (and that an Admin had the good judgement to delete).

It had turned into a spectacle of accusations and, defense, Hawaiian language posts, and violation of her privacy. Who had the good sense to post (twice?) ITT that its irrelevant whether Bri is or isn't rich, does or doesn't look like a model, etc? Yes... Joana.

Hey, JR. I was just thinking whatever happened to JR? I am glad you "unresigned".

Hopefully, this thread won't go "ugly" too.

I do hope this at least is a "good" weird for you

Nothing like the Red Sox having a 2-0 lead in their PP (Present Playoff) to get Griff in a good mood. Well, this native Nooo Yawker says (if the Yankees, tied 1-1 now, win their first round): Bring... It... On!

Her posts are always witty, although some probably do not get it!
