Very nice! And I'm surprised that you only got 5 requests from strangers. People are just freaky sometimes.

Good friends are more important than good food, or a fancy experience.

Wait, what? You're 25? Somehow I thought you guys were a little closer to my age.

I feel so.... old.

Funny, huh! I told the woman I was 32. Don't know if she forgot to write that down, or if she thought the quotations sounded better coming from a 25 year old.

Ooh, good opportunity to use this self-at-24 icon.

She did write it down. And apologized profusely, and offered to run a correction. Sorry, I was meant to pass that along.

Not a problem! I don't mind being 25 again!

Wait a minute! You're a thrill for under 50 durhams???

On a serious note, now that we know you're real name we can all stalk you and suddenly show up on your door step- with puzzle cubes.

I find it hilarious that you've been quoted in an international newspaper for organising DVD nights and playing Trivial Pursuit.

I have never made it into the newspaper for playing Trivial Pursuit.
