Hey! That's Fawlty. FAWLTY!

Criminentlies, do I have to proofread EVERYBODY around here?
War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus

Chuck -

I once dated a girl who was bipolar. It really did give her two sides, stripping her of opportunities her intelligence and talent otherwise would have found.

She was also a recovering meth addict, and she was very much prone to using people.

Terrible drag. If it weren't for those issues, I think we'd have gone steady. She was really beautiful, too. I still have her picture.

Which raises a question for me. It makes perfect sense that edgy, vulnerable folks like you would be drawn to a writer like Harlan, but why would a nice, well-behaved, sensible boy like me have been?

(Other than the fact that I'm introverted, over-analytical, and scared/angered by death?)


Actually, that last part sounds exactly like someone who would be drawn to Harlan's writings. Besides, he's large. He attracts multitudes.

And we need a token sane person around here.

My Dear Mr. Loftus

If I remember correctly, there were a more than a few misspellings of that name on the show itself were there not?

If I am correct, then I'm just following tradition.

If not, then my most sincerest apologies for making you work harder than you are want to do.

With all Love

Lori

I LOVE you guys!

The only thing that was better than reading the above, was the fact that I got a little retail therapy in at the Wally World (AKA Wal Mart) where my parents live. They were kind enough to let me celebrate today instead of next week.
