Sometimes I think I've bit off a little more than I can chew, but I is having such fun. Writing, publishing, entertaining fans and customers alike is quite a rush, and keeps me bouncy in the morning. I used to think all my dead friends didn't miss out on much. Now, I think I was wrong. Thanks. Winning second prize, and fifty bucks for writing a poem was indeed a spirit lifter.
