It's been FAR too long since I got together with my good buddies in a chatroom (and, last time, we all agreed that it had been fun and far too long and "we should do this more often"), so what say we try to manage it over the holidays? I think an hour or two of online silliness in good company would do wonders for all of us. :-)))
P.S. I get off work at noon on Dec. 24 and don't have to report back until Jan. 3 ... any time or day is good for me.
