And a palm pilot.
And a plot.
Damn it all!
And to Roy, Congrats you over-achiever, you!

best lines so far....Funny that talking about how much something sucks can be far more entertaining than the thing itself. I'm sure a thousand stand up comics would agree with me.

He laughed in the self-reproaching way that only a cardinal can that he felt like a hatchling.

I could see my hands, or my cat, or even the blurry visage of my nose. ....couldnt?
The clank of metal again bone was heard again and again.
