Wow, I totally learned some really cool stuff about you. For instance, one of the 5 songs we love is the same. Oh, and your virtual shopping bag is awesome and the places you want to see was fun.

Interesting reading! I can't believe you don't check the mail more often. What if there's money in there?

Lena! I LOVE The American President! "Mr. President, have you ever noticed how similar the VanBuren flatware is to the Buchanan flatware?"
