Sure, and in fact this is an old LNH gag done by people like wReam or
Tom Russell where in the middle of a story or review you start a
paragraph -or even a sentence- on topic and then start talking about
something completely different, like cats because my cat loves me, no
matter what some animal mind reader who comes across as a bit wonky
anyway might say, and I know this because he sleeps with us every
night, although he might be doing that because it's winter now and he
thinks it's cold and he might just be trying to stay warm, but anyway
the point is that what you did in the above paragraph is an old gag and
it's good to see people continuing the tradition. :)

Was this officially the first story of 2007 or the last story of 2006?
I think Tom and Arthur and Rob should all move over to this part of the
world so we don't have to worry about this every year. :)
