Greetings from bash

Sometimes all you need is a kind greeting, even if it is from a creepy robotic voice!
Make the bash shell greet you by writing a script that will run when you start a bash shell and that will print a greeting to you (current user).
It should say something like "Hello john, Good Morning!".
Depending on the time of the day, the greeting should vary. (eg:- "Good afternoon!")
Using a simple "text to speech" method available in your system ('spd-say' in ubuntu, 'say' in OS X etc.) make bash actually speak out those greetings. If such a method is not available in your system you can checkout espeak (http://espeak.sourceforge.net/).
