on a related note, I forgot to mention that the president of a University sang happy birthday to me. That made my day. ( unfortunately, I was half asleep when she sang, so I didn't think of a snappy answer).
But, now with the snow coming down, and I'm watching S.A.C. Ghost in the shell. oh, I hitched up my new Toshiba DVD player and for the very first time, watched "Perfect Blue". It was worth waiting 3 years.
