YOU will recall there was an arc of YOU in the office recently. LOTS of people wanted it:
The contest for YOU drew quite a few entries, AND one distinctly evil evil evil hijacker!
Fortunately I was able to track The Hijacker to her hideout, hinder her hijinx and hie away with YOU safely stuffed in my satchel!
She'll live (maybe!)

Until your poor brain is lost in a fog.
Then you are on the edge of your seat,
When you notice a really good tweet.
YOU's on the desk of Suzie Townsend,
Somewhere near her deft mouse hand.
How to get it I'll tell you,
I'll say please and, of course, thank you.
Laurie Lamb, you are the winner of YOU!
(send me your mailing address for the prize!)

I know...very very devious.
