don't take this wrong, Mike D...but when I saw that line, "My friend Mike D" all I could think of was the Beastie Boys song...I am a sad, sad little human. Well, okay, so I am not so little...

I may have to do this. It will take some thinking...

goes along with my post of the 80's very well. I will fill this one out when this teenager of the 80's rests her almost 40 year old brain cells for the night! I think I killed half of them in the 80's!
