    Hey, thanks for the comment! I haven't been very good with comments since about the second week, but I am going to get going on that. I have been meaning to stop by and check out your stuff this year. I loved "addiction"--isn't that a lot different than your sound last year? I like it a lot and you are really good at it. I will be checking in again in a few days. I have SO much on my plate for the last 2 days. You are almost there!!! Only one more! You will get it. 2 days to get that done?!?! That's an eternity in FAWM, really.
