  1. Two other words I say with extreme regularity. I have posted this on my tumblr (too bad you’re on wordpress and not tumblr or even blogspot… wordpress is the only one I have never used!)

  2. Aha. I thought I posted my tumblr as my “website” when I commented… Glad you found it though. Yeahh… it is a little clogged up lately by stupid re-blogs and the original stuff in there is more like me reporting on things I’ve read/seen/watched. I imagine it might get a little more interesting when I leave for exchange to Cologne in Germany (on Monday week). Also, I don’t have as good a camera as you… Most of my photos these days aren’t even done on my point-and-shoot but on my iPhone.

Stop!
