I am so thankful that all of you were willing to vote for me as President of the World Bank. Alas, that president is appointed rather than elected and personally I am content to be the Right Paw of Bast because then I am in charge of virtually everything. If only people would notice and listen. Perhaps you can persuade them?
I am not so thankful that Ichiro is insisting upon sharing my chair. This was only a few months ago but I think he takes up even more space now.
