I’d Like To Thank The Academy…

Um… This is an exciting moment for me. It’s something that I’ve been working hard for. Something that people, while I was growing up said, “You could never do.” Well, to all of them I say, “Look at me now! I’m king of the wooorrrllllddddddd!”

I would first like to thank all of Schadenfreude for supporting my endeavors. Even when the odds were against me, they said, “Stephen – keep on it. It’ll happen.” Thanks guys. You were the voice of support in a world of opposition.

I’d like to thank my parents. Mom, Dad – I told you I’d get here one day! You can be proud of me now! And Jacolyn, Jason – baby Thomas! All My nieces and nephews – Lola, Scarlett, Jane and Henry – This is your Uncle up here! Hey kids! And of course Patrick, Chris, Terrence and Bridget – your support through all of this has been just amazing! Thank you.

And I wouldn’t be standing here before you, accepting this Cease and Desist if it weren’t for the undying love of my wife. Sheila, I dedicate this to you. Your love is like a shining beacon in the night – even 6 states, 750 miles, I see you winking at me in the wee hours of the morning, you knowing that I’m scanning the intertubes looking for material that would get me a Cease and Desist. I love you, babyhead!

Thank you digg community – I couldn’t have done it without YOU! And of course, thank you to Sarah Cruz, Warren Kim, and Jeffrey Bell! You are the lawyers that kept your eyes on the web! Thank you for paying attention!

Oh my! I hear the music! Have I been up here that long? Ok. Ummm…. Maddie – I’m glad you’re feeling better. Michael, Jessica, the crew at AZ – knowing that I’m taking precious moments in the day that should be spent working on your shit to do this site… Thank you! Ummm… Oh yes! If you want to read the letter sent to me – click the jump!
