My EX just jumped after a 90-day went over 2 years, and I am now an azure queen. Woo-hoo!

(And I do hope that anyone still in hip boots trying to clean up their history and improve their scores will realize that all of this is tongue-in-cheek and not feel hurt. I was a very pitiful orange busboy last April. :smileywink: )


And now I'm back down to mayor, and just by the skin of my teeth. :smileysad:

Hi,
   Can you tell me if a FICO Classic 04 score is good, bad, or so-so, and if someone with that score would be a good risk?

Whoooaaa!!!! 
I ask for an immediate vote to have Byrd commited to a FICOholic  rehab center that teaches the difference between being the screwee and the screwer.  I for one do not get it off on a credit score!
No offense, Byrd, just pulling your leg, my man!
Toooooo funny!

A good FICO score is an indication that there is a sense of responsibility. Take DF for instance--high 700s across the board. Very responsible, takes care of business. That to me is sexy. Take ex-wife--credit score in the low 500s (no offense to anyone there, as I was there about a year ago myself--thanks ex-wife). She is not responsible, doesn't take care of business and tried to take me down with her.

Thus, I find good credit sexy.

Re: Interpreting Your FICO Score
I think we need a Dr Phil intervention here!
I would not even posit that we should hear rebuttal from ex-wife, but I still see no sexual stimulation from a three digit number!
(cheez, i love pullling your chain!!!)
ROFL!
