View Full Version : New Game - "Beat" Ingrid!

I have devised a new game that all can enjoy. After several attempts, it is quite clear that I cannot beat Ingrid at her own game. Can you? Post a question in the "How-To" section. Then, begin to research the topic yourself. If you can actually find an answer, before Ingrid posts her response, then you win the game! But don't worry, you won't!

:heart: :roflhard: :rofling: :heart:

Okay, edited so that it wouldn't look like I wanted people to beat Ingrid up!

For the record, I love when people beat me to an answer; but at the same time I hate to make people wait.

I suppose I could offer one million dollars, since no one can win!

See, I think the secret is the time of day. Like you would win if she was in the car on her way to work or asleep at 2am....otherwise, forget it. :rofling:

The only times I beat Ingrid are when I'm wrong, too. I pretty much don't bother, because if I'm right, Ingrid will just answer what I was going to say in a few minutes anyway. :roflhard: :heart:

I only answer when I think I know the answer and usually I'm right, but if I'm not sure I know Ingrid will know..or know where to find it. ;)

Umm... uhh.. Ingrid *has* been known to be wrong ya know... My unspoken claim to fame was catching her error in answering a question once. I have to admit I was very polite online about it, but here at home, I was "YA!!! I got Ingy!". :happydance:

Sorry Ingrid... but considering my life and where I work, I will take my triumphs however and whenever they show up. And it's just 'cause we love ya so much that we enjoy "trying to get you" so much!!! :thumbsup:

I HAVE been known to answer the occasional question wrong, true. But did you know it was a test? You, of course, passed that test with flying colors, but I have to do something to keep you all on your toes. :rofling: :--- :---

I think the forum should be renamed to "Ingrids Answers" or something much more clever. :lol:

Why Ingrid? Can't handle the pressure?

:roflhard:

Just kidding!!!!

But seriously, how *do* you know so much, o wise one? :D

I think I know a lot about knitting because I've done it on and off throughout my life. Everything I learned how to do, I had to find in books, since there was no internet and I didn't grow up around any knitters, really. I seem to retain what I do, too, unlike other things in my life! :rofling: How many times do I have to look up the same recipe? :rollseyes: I think the more I understand, the more I'm able to understand what I read, too. Plus, when people have questions here, I learn, too.

But without this awesome site, I'd have to keep it all to myself, and I really do enjoy sharing!

Don't you just hate that about recipes? Ugh! The worst! And then you see it and know that you knew that!

Anyway, I think its awesome you can remember it all! Even if it a slightly selfish reason I think its awesome. :lol:

You know, for the 2am slot when you *think* she couldn't possibly be around to answer? Forget it. She's got a SheepBot. :XX:

Do you know that I almost went back and deleted my post when I say yours? I'm becoming self-conscious, here. I think I'll go knit!

Whoever is keeping a running total - she was right again!

Her advice re: Addi problem was spot on!

So... what are her numbers anyway? Maybe that could be tacked onto her # of posts - # posts: 11,+++ # correct answers: ?? # wrong answers: 1

So... Who's our next contestand for: Beat Ingrid with the Correct Answer!

not me, Ang!

I'm almost positive that when it's somewhere around 3 AM PST, I've been on the forum and answered questions that Ingrid will post in after me or not at all. :lol:

Yeah, but 3am PST is 6am EST, which is about the time our little Ingy dear is having her coffee and settling iun for a quick check of KH before running off to work... ;) :rofling:
I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I don't know where this forum would be without Ingrid and Kelly... we miss Rebecca lots, because she's the cheerleader around here, and if Ingrid and Kelly left too, we'd all be lost... :crying:

:oo: I know I couldn't keep up with all of you guys!! :shifty:

I think what is great about you Ingrid, is the WAY you describe something. Many have knowledge, few can teach that knowledge so well.
Thank you for all the time and input you contribute!
