Not at all. Bruddah Iz was a genius.

Also, G D, I play guitar, piano, violin, and flute. But I don't actually have either my violin or my flute here with me in Newfoundland, and we don't have a piano either.

EL, my supervisors have always been very accommodating and understanding. I try to give lots of notice when I know something is coming (like Jan's due date for example), but I've never had any trouble. Your mileage my vary, however.

Have you guys seen this new book? It's called "How I Killed Pluto, and Why it Had it Coming", and it's by Mike Brown, the man who discovered Eris, and so essentially killed Pluto.
