In the mean time, I want to warn all of my lovely, patient, humor-filled readers and let you know that there may be many more strange posts (a la Valley) in the coming days. Assuming I stay in the competition, there will be more silly antics coming your way. So sit tight, have an open mind, and remember I have not, in fact, gone off the deep end - well... not yet.
p.s. Thanks so Trisha for the op!
