Talented genius

Before I head to lunch -- As you may have heard, Douglas Adams died suddenly on Friday as a result of a heart attack. He wasn't even fifty years old. Rest in peace, buddy. I started rereading the increasingly inaccurately titled trilogy last night.

I did not hear this sad news about Mr. Adams. You will love the trilogy. It is my all time favorite set of books being a professional award winning hitchhikker (some stories for another time) myself.

So long, and thanks for all the bhang.
Vinnie, I've said it before, and I'll say it again: you crazy.

I actually said rereading: I have read the books (there are five) before. I actually have a leatherbound copy of the first four, with gold leaf. Neat, huh? I can't remember if it was a gift or what. It's in pretty shabby shape, tho'.

And all the pot talk . . . I assume that you meant that to be unrelated, and were simply making reference to our various conversations Saturday. I am NOT a pothead. Don't listen to him, folks.

so you think you are special or something - I too have the leather bound edition - so HA! No the marijuana reference had nothing to do with you or your state of mind. Just the very straight and legal discussion. Have you ever seen the british tele show based on the hitchhikers guide? I haven't. This reminds me - Can I borrow the eddie izard tape again? He is now my favorite comedian.
