Okay, Todd. I've added my entry to the list. Looks like a very good one today.

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Thanks for adding my long-winded entry, Todd. Yes, the list looks good with a few authors I have been meaning to read, like Sturgeon and Koenig for instance.

I survived althouth the level of pain is crying for Vicodin.

Todd Mason said...

Yikes. Sorry, Patti. Treat yourself pleasurably/prudently however you can. (Toothy fun, folks. Never recommended.)

Yvette, Prashant, always looks good, though, doesn't it? And long-winded isn't a flaw I'd ascribe to what I've read of your entries, Prashant.

Get well soon, Patti, and do take that Vicodin.

Good job, Todd. Good luck with YOUR toothy fun next week.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks on both counts, Rick!
