I am having someone draw a raccoon for us. If we like it, we
can use it as a group logo sort of thing. I will create a
personalized version for each member of Raccoon Lovers, if
you like. Again, we have to see if we like it.

Have I gone too far?


Probably not, but we have already had this discussion on our team forum. You may have missed it. Look in the thread entitled Design a Team Battle Flag.

It was my initial thought that team members would agree upon a team signature picture that could be customized for each team member, but then we realized that RACcoon Lovers personalities were as diverse as the personalities of actual raccoons. Some liked ferocious looking raccoons. Some liked cute raccoons. Some liked thoughtful raccoons. So instead we decided to use whatever picture each person liked, or no picture at all. I am probably the most conflicted of the lot as I have decided to use a ferocious raccoon signature during challenges like the WOW event that we just finished, and to use a more neutral appearing raccoon for all other times.

The best thing about Team Raccoon Lovers is that there are really no rules or obligations.

As far as I'm concerned Angela you may post any picture you have of me.

What about the one in which you are wearing...

I think the one to be concerned about is the one where you aren't wearing...

Oh Gary... I believe that I have a picture of you as well - and raccoons are involved!!!

Unfortunately, you couldn't prove that by me. You never sent me a copy!

One of you is wearing stripes... you or the raccoon, can't exactly remember...

Hate to make you jealous, but 77 degrees here right now in the temperate SF East Bay.

That series sounds interesting. I will ask Eric to record it.

I have long thought that the tendency to believe in "something" is deeply hardwired in our DNA. I cannot think of a culture, ancient or modern, that did not have a god/goddess/gods. There must be something adaptive about "believing", that evolutionary pressures caused to be a favored trait in our species. Frankly, it was this very line of thinking that first put me on the path to becoming an atheist.

I was raised with religion (Catholicism) and I am thankful for the influence that religion had in my formative years, especially regarding issues of social justice. I often miss that sense of love and security that comes along with a solid sense of religious ideology.

If Eric and I had been so lucky as to have had children, I would have raised them in a religious context, simply because I think it can be incredibly beneficial to one's character to have had a religious background.

Also, a Judaeo-Christian background is absolutely critical to understanding much Western art, music and literature. I would have wanted that background for any children I might have had.

They travel in pairs so that one can be the cock-block.

They're so cute. What do we call those - blonde raccoons?

They are too dark to be blondes. Those raccoons appear to be pets, and clearly they are used to swimming in the pool, so they're cleaner than the average urban raccoon. Also, they are young and romping about in the day time, so their coats appear to be lighter in the sunlight than they might appear to be at night.

Blond/cinnamon raccoons are much lighter.

There was a TV show here about cooking and they invited the viewers to tell who is the best cook.
It turned out to be Your Mother:)

Yikes!!! I don't know about your mom, but mine cooks vegetables to death. I think it is a generational thing.

Stinky Lou has a tendency to over eat and then puke. It is not one of her better traits.

This is my ferocious raccoon signature, which I will be using through the WOW event to show others that raccoons are not to be over-looked!

I have plans to switch to a kinder, gentler raccoon signature when not involved in team challenges.
