    S/B May 9, 2010, old stuff.

    Oprah looks so skinny in the Pictures, and she and Obama look so white in the photos on TV all the time.

    So what is new to talk about?

    Thanks I enjoyed that, you would think they would have more sense than print something that is so obviously fake? I particularly liked your floating on pillows version.

  3. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment
    didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say wonderful blog!
