Well, apparently I made the right choice last night, because I feel much better today. :) The situation still isn't resolved, but now it's just something that can be dealt with whenever I want, instead of being what Nero Wolfe would call "rancor."
We now return you to your perky and friendly Gneech, already in progress.
EDIT: Thinking back on last night, I wonder if I should cut the picture Michele Light did of Tiffany out of my sketchbook and frame that one, too. Hmm.
