42 is my new lucky number

9 August 2011 My 15 minutes

Clearly, I have done something to please the Universe, because this has been a month full of wonderful news and awesome surprises – and it’s barely begun. Do you mind if I take a quick moment to share my joy? Last time I was talking about good fortune, I mentioned that I had been offered […]
