Well you guys continue to make me smile, even after the event...  I am feeling Stellar still.   I hope I can apply that term eventually to the rest of my life... I know, its been through your love and help that I grow a bit more confident in myself each and everyday...  Will sends his love to all of you for being there for me..  I guess he is saying, "I'm a handful."

Belated congratulations on the singular honor!  An experience like that will stay with you the rest of your life.

As always I am reminded of something in my life -- in high school I worked in the library instead of taking P.E. (the coaches got tired of me refusing to wear gym clothes or play any of those dumb games).  In my junior year there was a school-wide ceremony which I almost skipped to go smoke pot with some friends, but I was tripping and didn't feel like getting stoned.   At some point different scholastic, sports, and other awards were being given out and I was barely paying attention in my addled mental state.   I almost had a coronary when my name was announced -- the school librarians had given me a small medal for "librarianship," which I still have to this day. 

String up every aristocrat!
Out with the priests and let them live on their fat!

Eric that is fantastic!!! I'm not a formal/tux guy myself (prefer jeans) and would have done just about anything myself not to go. What an honor I'm sure you deserved it!! I'm Happy you were there and able to join in on the celebrations. Congratulations!!
