I honestly don't mean this to toot my own horn, because I was honestly dumbstruck. In case you hadn't noticed, I have a penchant for ruffling feathers and speaking my mind, which inevitably leads to ticking some folks off....

Honestly, this is the kind thing I never really expected. To me, it's "political" enough and enough of a popularity contest of sorts....that a loose-cannon like me isn't going to be among the first to be considered. Probably rode Tami's coat-tails to some extent, heh. Anyway, I was really surprised.

But tonight, I'll have to hoist a few in celebration. Have a good weekend folks.


nice work, kotter.
