About the singing thing...Well, I was just thinking about how I've seen photos of you, watched videos of you, and heard you tell me a story, but I've never heard you sing. Of course, this made me insanely curious about your singing, so I asked.
if you put your email address and birthday in The Box, I will sing to you for your birthday.

know any good jokes?
definitely not. the only joke of any caliber that's coming to mind is the one about cheese that Jal tells in Chris's second episode on Skins. (what do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you?)
