    1) Thanks for choosing my entry in Twitterpitch for the example. Now I got a story to tell my grandkids. I think A & K would enjoy the idea of drawing a preteen Brainiac 5 if I actually happened to win. :)

    2) If I were a pretty pretty princess, I would rather be rescued by Link, who is an actual hero as opposed to a plumber who can jump on mushrooms and turtles. I can do that, and I ain’t no hero.

    3) Box 13 sounds interesting, I’m gonna check it out. :)

    …oh, and the latest reason (Super Mario Galaxy 2) Bowser kidnapped Peach is so that she will bake a cake for him for once, instead of for Mario. :)
