FYI, I keep finding your awesomely randomly awesome comments on other people's pages as I wonder about HSA, as I do once in a while. And I find that they're little spots of fun... like spots of sun, ya know? But fun, so fun sun.

Very Happy

Thank you.

Moment of silence for the long lost quilting bees. They were dear to my heart as well. Even though I can't sew that well. Buttons. I can sew buttons. Anywayz.

As for my monkey, she recovered immediately and completely upon hearing that you're back on HSA. You're wonderfulness is just that powerful ma'am. Thank you again.

Twitter. Yes. I love Twitter. I heart it with all my heart. Do you? Thank you for following me there; I nearly fainted when I saw you had. Headline: "CELEB FOLLOWS A BANANA."

I am doing as freshly as a banana can, thank you. And yourself? Hope you're doing peachy. I really mean that.

Love back,
the banana department
