  1. I laughed out loud when you wrote you wanted to change your name to "Studmuffin". I mean, I think you totally should. I think I just found the name for my bike actually, thanks! I always say people would pay me to put my clothes back on if I was a stripper...not sure how/why I had that conversation. OH Back to tele-working...

  2. Fun read! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Good list Kovas ... I'd let them take both pinky fingers for $400K.

  4. I love this ... you studmuffin you!! :)

    Your wrists? I think that should be tomorrows blog! ;)

  5. I'm being driven slowly insane at the moment but I wanted to check in....

    I'll read this in detail later.

  6. Great post, made me laugh! Notting Hill... come on? Ironman 2 just came out.

  7. Funny. I loved Napolean Dynamite......"You know, like nunchuku skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills... Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills".
