One thing that's not cool about Happypete is "punctuality," at least when life overruns him.
mama_hogswatch: You were a great 'banner-carrier" for a nascent community of polyamorists, and your "Poly Misanthrope" column always reminded us of the need to reflect on--and perhaps repent and reform from--the "down-sides" of ethical non-monogamy, at least as practiced by some. You have been a good friend and correspondent--I'm sorry I haven't always held up my side of the deal.
geminigirl: Thanks for your hospitality on my way to and from Virginia via DC. You obviously have a generous soul--and you are quite fun to chat with.
owenthomas: You are the Guru of Grammar. Pretty much everyone knows all about my super-genius little brother. I'm really proud of you. Pam and I are so happy that you and Uncle Greg are in our lives. Keep up the great self-transformational work--going to have to get around to it myself, again, shortly.
pzyok: You know that I appreciate your willingness to shepherd a visitor to Huntsville around to the haunts of the Huntsvillian LJ-ers. I've always appreciated your optimism and your determination to keep on trying for better and more success in your life. I think you're on to something good, now, and I really hope it continues to work out.
Okay, I owe several more thoughts, but I'm exhausted from our WV vacation, so I'll leave the star on my Gmail and keep working on the rest later!
