TV makes hard things look easy, easy things look hard, and beautiful people look average. I was on TV once back in the 90s and they made me look mean  8)

I was also on national TV (it was either 60 Minutes or Dateline but I've never been able to find video online) once in the 90s.  I was biting my lip while looking extremely awkward in a way that most 11-12 year old boys are.

I might have found my place... (second time lucky?)
I had a second viewing today, taking my friend with me for a fresh pair of eyes.

I'm just afraid to make a decision :-\

I made an offer :o :D :o

I have to wait until tomorrow morning to know if it's been accepted, though...

(and I like myself a bit more, now)

It would be hilarious good fun to plan Hobbit-style housewarming, where 12 of us show up, one by one, completely unannounced for dinner. Jmack arrives last, wearing a pointy hat and smoking a pipe :)

Wonderful news, very happy all worked out at last  ;D
'..all tapes left in a car for more than a fortnight metamorphose into Best of Queen albums....they listened to William Byrd's "We Are the Champions"" and Beethoven's "I Want to Break Free". Neither were as good as Vaughan Williams "Fat-Bottomed Girls".
