"If we're playing along at home, The Heart is Green From So Much Waiting feels like some kind of gameshow hosted by a monk." - Mike Young
"What does it mean to turn green? I can't help but think of Superman and his kryptonite, but I'm sure some nerd would mention Green Lantern, and some other references I was too busy playing "Barbie Whorehouse" to pick up on..." - Amy Lawless
Mike, Amy: You is both good peeps.
