Update #5

Thank you!

3 comments

You guys are amazing.  I am overwhelmed.  365 people decided to get behind this.  What an honor.

Leonard's story will take place 365 years from now.  One year for each of you.

It's been a wonderful gift as you each supported, seeing your names come through as I check my email.  That is, like, WAY better than the Positive Life Skills class I had to take in 7th grade. (In which I learned that each one of you was adding a brick to my "Wall of Self-Esteem".)

This next six months are going to be quite an adventure.  Thanks for being a part of it.  I hope every one of you gets to experience a day like this day has been for me.

I'll send more info shortly as I finalize plans for the building of the spaceship.  The next step will probably be voting on a name for the ship.  I am now accepting nominations.

Have a great weekend and thank you, again, so very much.

Andrew

      So happy for you (and us)! I'll refrain from attempting a spaceship name nomination, because I am decidedly ill-versed in sci-fi and so am not really qualified, but I will vote and I will tell you I am so excited about this I could fall over dead (but I think I'll wait to hear the album first). :-)

      It seems like there aren't enough spaceships named Cletus...

      Congrats Andy. The obvious names are Nimoy or Skynyrd ;). I'm going to need Lenny's wife's name in order to begin this naming brainstorm.
