Now that I'm back in private life, my red Pradas and I are gonna have a BALL! Maybe two (tee hee!)
I just HAD to come by to tell you that my first post-papal role will be in a TV Land reboot of "The Golden Girls!" I've been cast as Dorothy Zbornak, while John Travolta will play Blanche, Christopher Walken will be Rose, and - gasp - Barbra Streisand will be Sophia!
Can I get away with red Pradas in winter if I go to Ibiza? Oh, who cares! I'm the Dowager Popess - I can do what I want!
Post some dick shots of your um.... Manservant.
Keep the Pope Hole shots to yourself.
Prada? Your popeness, did you say Prada?
Hi Ratzie! And what role does that gorgeous manservant of yours, Georg-asm have in the reboot? Will he be Lucas Hollingsworth a-comin' to sweep you off your feet?
I'm trying to wrangle him a part R3!
He's also trying to collect all of Bea Arthur's wardrobe from "Maude" for me! I'm so sick of plain white - a girl needs color!
Mother Angelica just texted me - she's SOOOOOO jealous!
Her wimple is wilted, I'm afraid. That sister's old dry snatch wouldn't be invited to play in a nursing home version of The Sound of Music, I'm afraid.
He isn't allowed to wear the $5,000 red shoes anymore.
Honey, that's all for show.
I don't DO brown.
I like color - JUNGLE RED!
Can Betty White make a cameo on your show?
Inizia a giocare, darling
"let the games begin...darling"
I have been requested to do something about you, and have informed the requesting party that for a nickel bag and some cannoli (Shit's so good.) I shall be sending a special emissary to you in Castle Gandalf to see if we can get you closer to sainthood in a fast way.
BUT I shall rescind my plans if you will tell me where you put the keys to the Papal Liquor Cabinet. That conclave is looking like a soul sucker, and since I have to be careful about what color of smoke I'm sending up I have to rely on gin to get me through it. I am sooooo sick of Benedictine.
But you promised me a part, your sexcellency!

Oh Lawd, it has happened, as was foretold in the book of something starting with L, I think. This is the Apocalypse. Dionne, girl, you best be careful. Oh, pray for us, sweet baby Jesus in a handbasket. That gay Vatican Mafia is a powerful bunch. We all gonna die.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
