  Ah yes. Dr Willy (sp?) and the Clogs of Comedy.

  Okay, my bad.  I watch so little television and movies these days that
the reference went completely over me.
  Not that that's going to stop me from planning a story about a 
Mo.gosub.lian university student - my ideas on the universities in
Net.ropolis are becoming increasingly weird as I incorporate more 
and more elements from GURPS Illumainated University and the 
Teenagers From Outer Space RPGs.  It just means that I can now use
CA:FT as a source to parody.
  (Oh! And anime! It occurred to me over the weekend that I really 
should do a panty-theif chase scene one of these days. Possibly
even during a Sidekickz concert.)

  Nope. Not surprised at all.
