    A message to Luvmybhm

    Dear - I couldn't send you a rep message and you are not accepting PMs, so I'll just have to thank you the old fashion way. Thanks for the rep, kiddo. Yours was quite enough for such a dumb old joke. By the way, your diorama is just beautiful! One could take one's lover and live there forever.

    I went out and looked up at the stars last night . . .
