OK, in this game one will have to post a coded phrase, better an idiom or a popular saying, and others will decipher it.
Let's start with an easy one.

Paid.

Afraid not. The celebrities chosen are important to figuring it out. To make the second one easier:

Hi Everyone:

LeadPal, ChildofTheKind, & Milinad ---- you are all correct! Applause Dancing

I have some more but unfortunately I cannot get the complete visual for you. I thought I could cut & paste a table with each puzzle in it's own box but Brick wall nope... must be a BETA thing???

Anyway, here are the puzzles. Some answers may have to do with the puzzles positioning, so try to imagine each one in a box and if there is space before and after it means the puzzle is in the middle, and so on....

I'll number each puzzle but the numbers are not part of them:

1:

NAWHAT’SME

2:

IMPROVEMENT
IMPROVEMENT

IMPROVEMENT
IMPROVEMENT


3:

IKD

4:

HEAD
LOVE
HEELS



5:

Y
Y
Y
Y
WORD
Y
Y

6:

mutiny

CCCCCCC


7:

O_ER_T_O_

8:

OVER
OVER
OVER


9:

Good luck & enjoy!!!

I would think "mutiny on the seven seas." (I just like pirates, though, so I could be completely off base.)

I'm extremely sorry Shadowstar, my post contains errors which I have corrected in a later post in this thread. Given this post, your answer is correct, but 'You are underworked and overpaid' is what I had expected.
