it's fill this form in, sign that box, fill this other form in, tick this box, fill this bath with a gallon of urine and say the alphabet backwards.
I'm pretty sure the guy I spoke to today needs to get a hobby to calm him down...... Gardening...or start practicing the art of Zen Bhuddism.
or both.... Zen Gardening or summat?
anyways, Merry Xmas
