Hey, Fresca----Send me your e-mail address and I'll include some GOATS---just for you.
Hope you had a Happy Easter!!!
Just wanted to say hello!!!!!!
happy b-day spi.
I'd like to be your fan. I mean the crazy sort. The type that stalks you all day and at night fixates over your photos while taking a bath in a tub of wasabi mayo. That kind of crazy.
OK, Mr. Potter----More details later.
I would love to invest. I'll keep it in mind if any extra money falls into my lap!
If you need to find actors...I'm usually down and I know a lot of others who probably would be down.
