Well, we all have a common set of references, and a common culture to

of research to be focused and intensified. I have a dream/wish to take a
small group up to the Living History level with this.... :-)

My first night with Anastasia was the kind of magical, passionate ride
that left me with my pants on the back of the kitchen chair, my
underwear on the chandelier, my socks in the toilet, my hair on the door
handle, half of my artificial leg somewhere in the pantry, my kidney in
a Coleman ice chest on its way to the Moroccan black market, and my car
in a Tijuana auto repair shop with new, red, diamond-tuck interior.
