P.S: I'll be back with regular gist. I know i owe you plenty in the meantime, please pay up your Sykik's gist money. She has promised to make me hammer so pay up biko. You remember my one dollar a person dream to be a millionaire don't you? It's not working at the moment so do me one better and pay up. *kisses*
