I wanted to take a moment to ask my wonderful readers to do me a favor. My very good friend's mother was diagnosed with uterine cancer recently and will be having surgery soon. All good thoughts and prayers are welcome.
Yes, prayers. Overlook the fact that a heathen monkey is beseeching you for this.
And, if you are so inclined, feel free to leave nice comments of hope and good cheer for my friend. I know she will read them, and she and her family could use all of our love and magical Internet healing powers right now.
