Hey Turt. Come here often?
Have at ye.
Pulled into war to serve a vision;
That's supposed to last a thousand years.
Part of a machine;
Unstoppable, as merciless as tidal waves.

You guys are friends. I speak to you and you speak to me and I like the fact that we've reached a point where we're just that. Friends. It's hard to explain how difficult my job is and dealing with my booze issues, but having people like you to shoot the shit had made my recovery that much easier, and I don't think you guys really understand how important you are to me.
So I just want to say thank you. (Sora this goes to you as well.)
