Only 4. Can't wait to have more rights taken away. Hopefully Jesus comes back today :) Chip

"I'm not feeling that."

"That one's gonna leave a mark."

Can it be a phrase? "Let's love on them." "We loved on her." etc. It's only a Calvary thing I think, but it's such bad English. Plus, it doesn't make any sense.

I will not miss "bailout," "green" or "going green," "carbon footpring," or any reference to icons that isn't about a desktop.

Hey Bryon,

I saw Charity last night. I guess you guys live pretty close to April and I. We need to hangout when you have sometime.
