I have never received so many text messages, emails, Facebook wallposts, e-cards, Hallmark cards, cookies, high fives, hugs, and iPhone photos as I have today. I do believe that this hoopla has less to do with me than with another big event, but I'm happy for coat tails all the same. Thanks, everyone!
