1) I've always liked your "Current terror level" thing.

2) Christmas Day! Possibly Jenn has mentioned your birthday in her recaps of Christmas celebrations, but I didn't tag it. Extra special birthday.

3) Very funny you included that bit about Coronation Stree - you're half way to being a Brit for that alone [wink]
