Though we met in passing before I went to bed earlier today, let's take the time to get to know each other. Just before I woke up, in my dream John Cleese walked up to me and handed me a mimosa, grinned broadly, and walked off into a crowded street. Earlier in this dream I discovered my cat, Einstein, has been living happily in my car these past months. I'm taking these as harbingers of you being a most excellent year, 2016. Also, I awakened breathing through both nostrils and hearing through both ears. Meaning that the nasty cold that descended upon me Christmas day has cleared off. 2016 and I are engaged in a happy dance around the kitchen. Join us, won't you?
