    Tanster, you rock. What would I do without you?

    This’ll be a nice little 2 hour gift on my birthday. I may have missed it if it weren’t for you. :)

    Watched last night and was very disappointed. I thought we were going to get a quick clip of John and Jenna talking about the show.

    Same here, Karen. It was an entertaining show but I probably wouldn’t have watched it if not for the possibility of seeing Jenna and John (other than on the Diversity Day clip) :-/
