Is it midnight yet in your time zone, Shining Ray? I still have five and a half hours to go...
I hope 2008 is kind to you all
P.S. I loved the Stick humour--particularly the hangman picture in which one stick figure remarks to the other, "Words will never never hurt you eh?"
Reminds me a bit of my third house Mars in Gemini; I used to love playing hangman as a kid. It's quite fitting now for this placement now that I think about it; aggression through words! At least, aggression towards a poor, unsuspecting stick figure!
