    1. It's all trivia at this point, but everyone is supposed to pay homage or something on August 9, and it hasn't happened yet.

    2. I was just paying homage! You DA MAN! Your commemorative bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label is waiting here for you right now. If we don't drink it in your honor, we might be able to bring it with us to your hovel warming party next year. If we're invited...

    3. The hovel will be constructed. I just went over the architect's to-do list (6 pages long, double sided, small font). I hope that it can be finished in 2017.

  2. That's a very impressive proclamation. It went with a parade, at least?

  5. Sooo, you broke the bank at the poker table and gave it all back in good faith. Worth a key, at least.

  6. I was just going to ask if they remembered to honor you once a year, but I guess it wasn't worth the paper it was written on?
    Still, it's really neat. Congratulations.
