    Hey guys, have a good time. I've had two pipes burst in my house, so I'm trying to deal with a cleanup crisis and will have to save intellectual development and good company for later. Take care!

    Mala is awesome- I was in the Women for Change Calendar she did and she is so warm and friendly. Alas, I cannot make it on Tuesdays and hope you all have a blast!
