An earlier E-mail to Shan:

          "I see you were tagged by the same person I was – she has a very limited vocabulary and tagged me with just about the same phrases.  Fun, eh?

I must say one of my favorite things is people like that.  ‘I’m going to pretend to know you based on your blog, judge you, and then anonymously post my thoughts about you.’  Being a badass on the internet is about as cool as microwaving hamsters.  ‘Here’s your sign.’"
And I must say, I agree wholeheartedly with Shan’s response.
And you wonder why I love Shannon.  Hee hee.
