Well, I guess there was that Snatch and the Poontangs thing a while back. Congratulations. I'm a huge fan of your blog. I appreciate the dedication (and the collection) it takes to post interesting stuff everyday (though you might want to get out o the house a little more). Hope you can keep it going through 05.
