I was absolutely floored by the overwhelming support. Though I long suspected that considering myself "different" and an "outsider" was a self-serving conceit, it wasn't until I hit the big 5-0 that I decided to go against my nature and outside my comfort zone and participate in the ultimate team sport, MOTD, and am glad I did since I learned, quite wonderfully, that I'm not so different after all. It is nice receiving validation from one's peers, offline and on, and your votes and kind words have proved more meaningful than I can say. RJ is like family - part loved, part tolerated, oft ignored yet an increasingly integral part of me. Thanks for getting under my skin these past few years with your perpetual wit, wisdom, infighting and propensity for bringing out my worst and best.
