No matter if it’s a solitary piece or a mixed fruit salad.
Ha! Seems like a fruit salad, doesn't it ;-)

Oh never mind, it's still just one number per day :lol:

****Well, that's how it goes... or not :roll: / Jarkko****
hummm...... I think the speed of the countdown clock is susceptible to change ;-)
Even though LC likes to take it slower and by Jarkko's "expression" that could be likely, but let's hope it goes a little faster!
Well, I think I misread Jarkko's rolling eyes expression at the time - seems it should have been "who knows" ;-)
But who cares, because the last part of my sentence could be true!

I love the suspense :)
Regarding this thread, i.e. the announcement of an announcement, the countdown, the delay, the Fast Forward; no matter what this masterpiece (signed or unsigned) turns out to be, Leonard's words ring true for me:
Thanks for the dance
It was hell, it was swell
It was fun
Thanks for all the dances
One, two, three, one, two, three, one


Or should that last line be four, three, two, ONE.

Thank you, Dear Lady.
You are, without doubt, an astute observer of humanity and an excellent judge of character. ;-)

Does anybody know what time that will be in New Zealand? I'm hopeless with time zones. It's now Friday morning at 11.07am here!

Thank you so much. I'll be sitting down with a nice glass of bubbly, in anticipation of the 'big reveal' then!
