    Hopefully they'd pause to let you out before micro-waving. Muppets are not good for microwaves.* And vice-versa.

    Night, Cliff.


    Nighty. Sounds like a Three Cat Night.

    ETA: Morning, HJ. You snuck in here while I was writing/editing/checking/editing/writing/antsing over my word choice and re-writing my post.

    Hmmm... Location? Location? Location? There's the East Coast contingent. The West Coast contingent. And people in Jarmany, Australia, and South Africa. Let's hold our party as a picnic on Mac's virtual lawn, which seems to be the only place we can all get to in good order.
