5. Much thanks
A good friend of mine from Nashville had an autographed copy of this book as one of his most treasured possessions.

His preacher dad, after ex-gay camp was a failure, kept trying to beat the gay out of him. The book helped him through very trying times.

11. Thank you for that!
Saturday night we'll be at my friend and his BF's joint 22nd birthday party, so we'll catch it on Sunday night. :)

12. Thank you!
Lets see... I work the 24th, as mentioned... Depending on if I can get a ride home the morning after work, I might be able to catch it at 8am the next day. I haven't seen the schedule for next week, so i don't know if I'm working on the 27th - they rarely schedule me for Tuesdays, though.

Thanks again :hi:
