    While the voices in my head scream, wail, and moan in the background, I am big enough to congratulate you on your win.

    Of course, if any quotable comments from said voices are overheard, rest assured, they shall be strewn artfully amongst the lilacs and lace.

    Those button holes are truly stellar (and your tutorial on bound buttonholes may actually motivate me to learn something new).

    Forget the "long suffering, and just sign me,

    Your fantagonizer
