  1. Your mention of how long ago 1997 was blew me away. WOW! Reminds me of what someone said on Twitter, that the 90s are the decade to the 2010s as the 60s were to the 80s. I don’t know why that’s so scary, it just is.

    Also envious of your live stream beta, despite my bets efforts I’d still be far too shy to do that. Hope the experiment works out :). Alas timezones aren’t in my favour in Australia, so I’d be unlikely to catch one, but a great idea.

    I also have an urge to go to a water park, despite my penchant for always getting horribly burned!

  2. Thanks Ruben — it’s nice to have someone on Onsug around my age. I listened to your show for the first time this morning on my way to work and loved it! I had the Pet Shop Boys in my head all day.
