Me too, Melissa. Me too.  :'(

I have a recording of it on my PC, formatted as a PowerPoint presentation, accompanied by lots of Vincent's beautiful paintings. I've just tried unsuccessfully to post it here. Does anyone know how I can post a PowerPoint document here?

I don't think you can post a powerpoint presentation.... Would love to see it though, could you send it if you can't post it?

Have you ever been to Amsterdam, to the Van Gogh museum?

Oh, have you tried anything yet? When's the last time you flew anywhere? Well, if you do get over it, somehow, I promise to give you a tour of Amsterdam and the Van Gogh museum!  :)

11) Favorite movie:  Duh!  Brokeback Mountain  ;) but Secretary with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader is a close second

Dot good call on Secretary!  I love the movie Secretary and I had no idea who Maggie Gyllenhaal was at the time i saw it. 

Come to think of it my fav TV show is Boston Legal because i find James Spader's character very entertaining and of course seeing him reminded me of Secretary, so i watch it sometimes.
