Kinda related...my ABG DID win the First "Megan" award for Technical Excellence in Theater at her High School. They give it every year to a Graduating Senior who has shown a level of dedication to the techie side of Theater Arts. It was created and named for her. Nah, I'm not proud or nuthin'.
And, bad steal there, Marko!
