Default Signed fiver update

Okay, time to come clean. There's a reason I haven't sent out the signed fivers yet. That reason is --

(Are you sure you want to hear this? It's pretty stupid.)

-- That reason is that if people were paying me for this, I wanted to go the extra mile and make sure the fivers looked good on paper. In particular, I wanted to make sure there weren't any scenes that were interrupted by page breaks. And I could not for the life of me figure out how to do that. It would be simple in a word processor, but these are HTML files. It was just recently that I actually tried loading the HTML into Word and discovered how easy it was.

Oh, like you've never underestimated a Microsoft product.

Anyway, I'm posting now to guarantee that I'll send out the signed fivers as soon as I get back in Waterloo. I have everything I need, and now I know that. So if you've been waiting for your envelope to arrive, it's coming shortly, and I'll see if I can throw in a little something extra for the delay.

Just as long as we actually get them at some point, and they aren't written on toilet paper, I'll be happy.

Okay, there goes one idea for the something extra.

I guess if it was that really cushiony stuff that puppies seem to enjoy frolicking in so much...

We always get labradors, for some reason. Not that I'm complaining, mind - if they're marinaded in the right sauce they can taste absolutely scrumptious.

It's amazing how fun necroposting can be...


Did this ever happen?
