  1. Foz –

    you’re officially the first person ever to put me at the top of a list like that. Thank you. I am (not kidding here) moved.

    I loved your entry on the book, by the way – ‘worth getting fired over’… my wife wanted to put that on a t-shirt. Along with ‘it’s made from awesome’, which is my other fave reaction.

    Drop me a line, find me on Facebook or just swing by the blog sometime –

    Nick H.

    I’m grinning. And also, you know, grinning. Glad you were moved! (Grinning.) Seriously, though – I loved the book, and cannot think of a better story to be fired for reading. Shall certainly make contact!
