Writing with the Staceys

The following conversation took place between the hours of…um, the time I got up and the time I went to bed?

(Speaking of which, thank God “24” is over for the season. WTF was that? Besides the storyline that made no sense, having Jack Bauer say “I’m at a crossroads”? Gag.
