i remember the announcement rather well. it was like totally my first time i read a sad thing on your LJ. normally its all la de da da ….. in a way, it made you more ‘real’ to me. i dunnoe if that helps, to understand waht i think about your LJ. in more ways than one, its really quite surreal to read about how fa lala your life is. anyway, i wish that you guys stay as loving as ever. and i miss Homer! drools…..
