It's very important to be astonished by everything.
I enjoy swearing and one of my favourite words is yoink.

I don't really know her well, but I am a huge fan of George and the work she did at Flickr (I worked at Yahoo and talked to her a bit while there). As Stewart said at one point, Flickr has a lot of her in it, people can thank her as much as anyone for it's success. I can't imagine Flickr without her. I wish her the bes… Read more

I love George

George is made out of awesome. Please let me know if you come down for SXSW and need a place to stay, I have a spare room and would love to return the favor!
George. She'll make you drink champagne.
G is the sane one in this insane world. She is smart, vibrant, realistic, dedicated, kind, witty and vveeerrryyy creative. This color loving cappy has already made her mark on the world and continues to add her essence to everything she touches - the Glo style. You rock big time G. Thank you for being YOU.
Optical delusions still themselves when you pass by in convexing pomp and sacral trance.
More people should like swearing, then Bees and I would be less pilloried by society for our foul mouths. George likes swearing. This makes me happy. George also tells me off on occasion (don't tell her, but I like it). When she combines the two, it maketh me all warm and squirmy inside. :)
George is the bees knees. If I could adopt her as a sister, I would.
Who is this George person and how does she get so many testimonials?
George, Georgie Parker, ... Whatever guise she adopts, she's the greatest!
George is fabulous.
George has a nice laugh, and she makes other people laugh, so generally there is alot of laughing.
One of my (new) favorite colours is George.
George is insanely funny, wicked smart, and brings *major* fashion sense to Ludicorp. She is definitely one of the top 5 coolest Australians working on Flickr right now.
"Imagine this sung slightly out of tune: George......oh George.... you are, you are..... George Oates. You like to row boats. Oh yes...yes you do...and you are rude. You know? Because YOU.... ARE.... GO GEORGE!"
George makes me laugh often. That about sums things up.
...in Vanilla Sky, David looks at the pictures on Sofia's fridge, smiles & says, 'I like your life'. That's how I feel, when I look at George's photos. (Sofia replies, 'Well, it's mine & you can't have it!' :)
george. well really she's just lovely. talented too. should hear this woman sing! sings like aretha, cooks like nigella and chucks a ball like.... well someone who chucks a ball really well. boldly carving out a life in the land of lumberjacks and moose, much missed. good excuse to visit vankkie, but.
George is my SIS! I am lucky enough to have known George all my life, i even remember when she lay on my lap when she was fresh out of the womb. know what? she just gets better and better with time too. hmmmm... who the hell is georgie parker???
While the true origins of George are unknown at this time, researchers are working steadfast to enable the George all of us. So people, let's celebrate the George in all of us.
She found them in an old film canister, one so dusty with neglect as to make her think twice about opening it, but she did, and upon opening it she found the desiccated bodies of three insects - beetles of some kind - each a different metallic color. That was how it began.
What is the mysterious quality that makes George so delightful to be around? I can't say. All I know is that a day after meeting her, I felt like we had known each other for years. Is "George" Australian for "super cool geek grrl"? Could be...
George is one devoted developer toiling from dawn to darkness. But when the monitor turn off. Say hello to Georgie Parker, wild woman extrodionare
While others might compare George to crack, I prefer to think of those A.C. Doyle stories where Sherlock Holmes is snorting coke and playing the violin while floating in some sort of aesthetic and intellectual nirvana.
The intrigue of George lies in the extreme variations present in her personality and interests. She's not crack; she's a test tube of fizzy, reacting goodness.
There are two things that keep me coming back to Flickr. The first is a crippling agoraphobia, and the second is George, whose personality is more addictive than crack, and shinier than a brand new penny.
George is a fabboo person to get a pint (or pitcher) with. Seriously, look her up & ask her down to the pub, you will have a great time!
