It's not the trinket that matters

Azumanga Daioh is one of the funnier animes I've ever seen. In Azumanga Daioh, there's a nice scene at the end. The girls are all graduating and Kagura is in her classroom for the last time. She's touching a desk, wondering what the future will hold. Yukari-sensei walks in and asks what's up. The conversation goes something like this (though my memory isn't perfect):

Kagura: Yukari-sensei, I don't suppose it'd be ok if I took a desk or chair with me, would it?
Yukari: Kagura, why on earth would you want to do that?
Kagura: Well, it's really silly, but I guess I'd just like to take something from this classroom with me.
Yukari: But you are! Your memories!
Kagura: (Whimpers, then bawls) Yukari-sensei! Thank you!
Yukari (in her typically clueless fashion): Huh?

Through an unexpected and unfortunate circumstance, I have lost the globe's base. But I don't need to the globe's base to keep the memories. ABA is still one of the coolest things to ever happen to me, and the ABA execs are still some of the coolest people around.

Besides, I still have the globe. Too bad it has nothing on which to spin anymore.

But it was the globe's base that had the logo.

Dang.
