Hey, Chris, this book has the power to turn all of us into wimps! Don't feel alone!

I'm glad you're reading it. I've gotten lots of messages from people who can only look at it and haven't gathered their courage to read it yet. It brings back lots of memories about lots of Forum members - some of whom are still here and some who have moved on. Also brings back lots of memories about our own individual reactions to the movie and why we all gathered together here in the first place.

Thanks for sharing your reactions here, Chris. I'm sure the authors and volunteers appreciate your comments.

It is my great pleasure to announce that Forum stalwart and moderator Ellen (tellyouwhat), who has played a significant role in the production of The Daily Sheet for so long, has graciously agreed to become a co-moderator of these threads. As she really needs no introduction to regulars here, I will simply say I am honored to be paired up with her, and know that all of you will join me in extending to her a very warm welcome!

Congratulations, Ellen!

I'd heard you'd been loafing around with not much to do, so maybe this will keep you busy and out of trouble!   :D :D :D

Having to hide your love is denying it.

If anyone is reading this, I just got my copy of the book. There is a reunion talked about in the beginning--maybe the person in South Africa? What happened at the reunion?? Please send me a message as I won't get back here.
