I have worked in a technical support role for several industries and love the problem-solving aspects of my work as well as helping clients maximize their productivity.

A life-long curiosity drives my interests ranging from creative writing, photo-editing, music, problem-solving puzzles such as sudoku, cooking and baking, all types of crafting, sewing and yarn arts, creative resources on the internet and learning new apps for my favorite toy...my iPhone.

comment Do both of these introductions mean the same thing and make sense?
Trolling a community member is really not acceptable. You may want to read a few more questions, answers and comments to get a better feel for the communication style among our group. I truly was not trying to offend you Daft. Also, you can't assume who may have downvoted your question.

comment Do both of these introductions mean the same thing and make sense?
You're right @Daft. I should have asked why you would say you didn't think you'd been introduced when you know you haven't. It's not a big deal, really, just trying to understand - and it's not an excuse - where I'm from, we don't tend to mince our words - we tend to speak directly. Best of luck with your introductions! :-)

comment picking a nicer word than article
Welcome Jack Watson. For what it's worth, "clip" is probably a more suitable word than "snip" and might be more organic to users as an object versus "snip" that sounds more like an action (to @itcouldevenbeaboat's inference) :-)

comment Are there any English one-word equivalents for “je ne sais quoi”?
At first I was thinking "allure" might be too specific in a positive direction but then came around to agreeing with you after thinking about it a little bit. +1! :-)

comment Are there any English one-word equivalents for “je ne sais quoi”?
...assuming that certain something is attractive or alluring, not some negative attribute. Although, I think that when most people say that someone has a je ne sais quoi, they mean it in a positive way.

comment Is there a word or phrase meaning to plant my idea in someone else’s mind?
It's the OP's choice, of course, to pick the answer that best suits them, but insinuation does not leave the recipient to believe the thought or idea is their own.

comment “in the order it was received”
I've also heard "Calls will be answered in the order in which they're received" which makes more logical sense but who is really paying attention to the recorded message? We're all pretty much saying to ourselves, "Darn! I'm on perma-hold!" lol!

comment 'The company I work for' cannot be shortened to 'My company'?
To remove ambiguity and to shorten up the phrase, you can say "my employer".

comment What Defines a Utah Accent?
@Janus Bahs Jacquet, it's not apparent if OP did any research on his own before posting the questions. Based on the information I gleaned from the results of my single query, it does seem that there is plenty of general reference information available.

comment Origin of British term “to bits”
I wouldn't be surprised to discover that "to bits" morphed from "to pieces", (as @Tim Lymington answered) and possibly gained popularity because of use by a character from a TV show or movie.

comment Meaning of the quote by Helena Christensen
You know, it could also mean that she's symbolically a girly-girl and the high heels represent the trappings of an ultra-feminine woman. Since both your and my speculations are opinion-based, this question should be off-topic.
