visitors, who'd have'em.

I got the huff last night.

I invited my sister over for tea last night as she came interstate for a wedding (not THE wedding - a much better one - our cousin's) and we don't see each other that often.

We got some takeaway for tea as I had had to work late and didn't have time to cook. After we ate, she then proceeded to plonk herself in front of my telly and watch some crap show.

Jen, have you sent your "madethislook" assignment into Mena yet? I have 3 projects pending and although I hit sent for review it seems to be stuck in pending. Any suggestions?

Do you have address form? I'm thinking of investing in one in the future and want to get people's recommendations.
