True. Now I have the main theme in my head, even though I'm listening to something else right now, so if it's any comfort you're not suffering alone anymore.

There's just something about a smooth, shiny head that does things to people. Not that I'm in any way biased, of course.

Yeah but that's more to do with yesterday's dinner than anything else.

Last night I dreamed I went for a walk, finding myself just across the border in Illinois. That must have been some walk starting out from Canada.

Some weird things obviously happening for your state.

Especially since you have to walk through Michigan and Wisconsin (or maybe Indiana but that means going through Gary and nobody should ever had to do that) to get here
