Okay, so he probably appreciates extra meaningless threads clogging up the board as little as anybody here, but in all good and honest spirit, Happy Birthday Chris! It takes a special kind of person to be as grumpy, hockey-enraged, misanthropic, and 'f' rant induced as me, along with a deep love for vintage tokusatsu hero toys - wait, maybe it has something to do with studying science(?) - but at any rate, as far as great members of the SB board and Japanese toy enthusiasts, he is right up there. He has added a fecal tonne to the community in his many years here, and continues to, in spite of it all. And for stellar collections of fantastic toys of all shapes, types, and ages, you need to hunt pretty high and low to find something comparable. Fact is, Lixx is a good dude (just don't tell him anyone said so); and though I might have ongoing plans to take him out and steal all his toys in the future, it isn't personal. So have a great birthday, hope it is as memorable as it needs to be, and that there is some time inbetween assignments this week to catch a game, relax, and enjoy a few beers. Best wishes man. Keep on keepin' on. P.S. Go Habs!
