    Very nice and wise indeed

    Still, not a chain mail which appear to be in its original form.

    Pass that to X people and THAT will happen, haha.

    I still remember when people thought they'll be paid my Microsoft for sending some chain mails to as many people as they can
    That was such a laugh.
    Available for outcalls and very rarely for an ocassional weekend tour, watch my profile when I advertise.

    Independent & Charming Companion.

    A bad good girl .. I wouldn't have it any other way
