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!

:rofling:

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.

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!".

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!!!
