  1. 1. Congratulations.
    2. I planned to leave a lengthy comment re: “Sappy, Sappy,” but it looks as though you ditched it. Too heartfelt?

    • Thanks. About time they recognize.

      Yeah, too heartfelt.

      • Well, in honor of that too-dear, departed post, let me note that it gave me a pang of some relative of nostalgia or empathy — not aching for the past, but aching for someone else’s experiences: “Shit. I want to miss these people, too…”

      • Yeah. It feels nice to be part of something like that. Good times. Good times…

  2. Woooo! Congrats. You are a rejection inspiration. A rejectspiration? I don’t know. I’ll come up with something. In the meantime: woooo!
