 Well, I guess that means that you'll just have to wait another couple of weeks before you can meet up with Estelle. [What are you dressing up as for the convention, by the way?]
Ernesto, that's true.   He certainly adds life to threads in which he posts. He can, at times, be an interesting and entertaining poster, but he continually makes the mistake of thinking that his experience or interpretation of something is the only possible or acceptable way of experiencing or interpreting something, and thus disregards, or vehemently disagrees with, all other viewpoints.
