  1. Sure. Eat my comment. Stupid internet.

    1. Yeahhhh. THAT makes it.
      But I say I love the Disneyland silhouette, and think the bookmark is Fabulous, and it's "oh yum, I'll just gobble those data bytes down by the spoonful."

      Yes, I'm yelling at a... machine? Non-existent entity that we rely on? Bloody fudge, what is the Internet when I'm trying to yell at it?

      Well, I'll just kick the air, because wi-fi is in the air, and maybe the net will feel it...... like an elephant noticing a single leaf floating off a tree branch.
