I like this definition.

Here's my try:

Keeps clicking mouse, even though Windows has long since stopped responding.

This is interesting. I'm wondering how one can be indifferent and in charge at the same time. I'll consider the deeper meaning with which it was most likely intended. Still, it caught me off guard.

Lacking a lighthouse, I take it.
FYI: I'm posting a review of this site sometime late tonight.

Inde, just using Windows is a fine example.

Helen, I'm an Executive responding to you during work hours. Believe me, it's possible.

Weirsdo, a lighthouse, a rudder, a sense of direction, a destination and the sense to keelhaul the captain.
I'm honored and touched, if it's a good review I may weep.

When the dog's tail is unwavering the dog is resolute.

Isn't it strong willed?

Doug said...

Tom & Icy, you've never seen a dog more resolute than Willie (who looks just like me, by the way) when his tails wagging.

Well, yeah, actually, Sunil, if you're going to get all Noah Webster on me.

Focused to the exclusion of all feeling and reason. See synonyms at psychotic.
