To laurel, who I first met at a Minicon music party, and who I immediately liked because she was cool, happy birthday! You introduced me to the internet, and were the first person I knew who used the word "blog." You are a cat lover par excellence, and you can judge quality television like some oonophiles judge fine wine. It's been a long time since we last saw each other, and I hope a time comes when we can get reacquainted in the three-dee world. Until then - may your birthday (back on July 5, yes, I missed it, ack) signal a year in which life becomes easier, better, and more rewarding for you than you could even hope for.
