    Would a free FJ55 count? :)

    I get really excited when the mail comes. Sundays and holidays are a sad day because I check the mailbox anyway. The grocerery adds are colorful enough to amuse me but val-pack takes it. So many things to look at in one small package. This one time I got a credit card application and it came with all kinds of stickers. I almost lost it! That was a great day for sure. :D

    The day I successfully mastered cold fusion in my garage using household items, and converted all of my lead fishing weights into gold using my newly developed alchemy formula (the secret is having a naked supermodel mix the chemicals into the fluid matrix).




    Oh, I almost forgot that I found the Holy Grail that morning too. What can I say, it was a busy day.
