@ colour of fire, i used to love late night tv...remember the Big E? it was on around 1 or 2am and was all about music? eurotrash was great too. but MSCL made me accept my differences much better too.....tv can make you a better person smile

I'm glad things are ok. As for decorating the den...hmm. Have any ideas?
