Amazing! A Monty Python sketch I have never seen before!

I'll have to check out that BBC thing. It looks interesting.

I swear that song title's different on my Evanescence album. Think they made a special one for me, just so I'm an idiot?

Heck, I wouldn't put it past anyone.

I've been doing the happy dance for you about the library. Been doing a TON of lurking lately, but I've been here (and there and everywhere else).

I leave you with this immortal bloody saying: It's just a flesh wound!

Happy TT, darling!

That's a really interesting list. I just read a Barbara Vine novel called "The Blood Doctor."

Joely Sue Burkhart 10/10/2007 7:35 PM
