IVP - Strangely Dim - Stick a Fork in the Fortnight

Stick a Fork in the Fortnight

The cliches have been multiplying like rabbits, but today our fortnight comes to an end. Back to the grindstone, everybody!

By the way, my friend Dan tried to rabbit me yesterday by cell phone, but thanks to the miracle of caller ID I got him instead. Congratulations, however, to Lisa for winning the in-house contest yet again.

Looks like I may need to be a bit more tricky next month... perhaps my son will call you first to distract you...

All's well that ends well! So they say. I've been pleased as punch the past two weeks watching your little dog and pony show. You are--honest to goodness--smart as a whip and a silver-tongued orator to boot. So don't be stubborn as a mule and give this cliche thing the old heave-ho. Keep on keeping on, brother. Don't pull the rug out from under your faithful readers. We could stir up a fuss, you know. Don't let a golden opportunity slip by! Well, think about it. It's just grist for the mill. But I really do I hope you'll decide to keep the ball rolling. I mean, walk a mile in my shoes and you'll understand. Anyway, I thought I'd go for broke and put a bug in your ear.

So with all due respect I'd just like to say that from the word go I've loved you like a brother.

Well, at the end of the day, that's about the best you can hope for.
