Det ville ej fästa sig faktiskt var riktigt svårt :( Men fick bättre betyg på första uppdraget. Så man får ju vänja sig vid att det blir olika betyg på kurserna. Så är det ju för alla :)Kram

Cool and intersting to learn about different folks! We have similar tastes in music and TV (we watch Scrubs every day, love it...zoom zoom zoom!)
We've just done a list though, so not playing, sorry!

It was very fun to learn about you and see all the similarities! I will be watching Criminal Minds in just a bit but what would make it perfect is a bowl of butter pecan. Should I go out and get it or not...hmmm...dilemnas. :)

Have a great night!
