  1. I prefer the previous pronunciation of onsug because the letters retain the pronunciation they had in the words they were from.

  2. Thanks for coming to the reading, and thanks for the awesome review!

    I’ll address a few things in my next episode – whenever that will be – but I know how I want to shoot the plane crash! It’ll be a P.O.V. shot, with the camera on a rig behind a mock cockpit on a ramped track. (At least that’s my idea – I need effects people to tell me if it’ll work!)

    Did you catch the 209 reference I put in there? It was when Morris went home the first time and the phone kept ringing as we see the clock. ;^)
