Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
"My junk is you."

And that is it!

& only 4 days into 2010!


  1. meh, being in love is overrated, I'm sure.

  2. And I stole it from a couple of other people too...

    Also, although I can claim as not having sex the entire year an achievement, I have done so for 23 years now... I need something to tip the balance. Any suggestions (besides wild sex romps)?

  3. I am honored, you are my true blog BFF! :) Can't wait to meet you. Sorry to hear your friend died, that is rough. I wish you a better year! I have a feeling having me in your life will make more of an adventure that's for sure! xoxo


Dude, I totally love you back!
