Hahaha! Do you remember one of my readers was the lobster messiah and accordingly went by TLM? I wonder if that's him!

Hey, there's another 3 letter prefix...dammit, doesn't work either. You're taxing my brain!

You're probably feeling very guilty now, as well you should, but I'll let you off the hook if you do one thing for me. What's that you ask? Post a new LOST recap ASAP!
