    Ok, I’ve had too much fudge I think.


    Applause, applause, applause!  Congrats, Fred and Steve!!!  Well done, guys!  Congrats to the honorable mentions too, and I appreciate being among them.  Well done, everyone…oh, and better go easy on the fudge…kinda rich.


    Who invited all the Chihuahuas?  They keep begging for fudge.  I thought this was exclusively for humans, aliens, and zombies.
