  8. Your "It's not easy being green" reminds me of my trip to the Jim Henson museum in Leland, MS. Somewhere in my old, old files, I have a picture of me with a life-size Kermit, my reward for spending a traumatic 2 hours with a little old lady that apparently never got to talk to anyone and was genuinely offended when I said I didn't want to stay for the remaining two hours of the Jim Henson biopic that plays in the front room. LOL Good times!
