I am both delighted and horrified that Yahoo! let me tell this story, in full color and with fancy moving pictures, on their website.
And to answer your inevitable questions:
... yes, this did happen;
... and no, I don't know what's wrong with me.
....this is actually a much-shortened version of the whole danged saga, which you can read HERE. Which, if you do read, you'll notice I've changed one small detail -- that was to protect the poor, unsuspecting Yahoo! viewers who might be so horrified by this one detail that they would jam fondue skewers into their ears to block out the offensiveness. But you, my dear reader, you can take it... I'm sure of it. (Kinda.)
