My brother used to work for Chris Rock.

I can write backwards too (just printing, not cursive). I think it's because I'm lefthanded.

Oh yeah, I like Click and Clack too. I'm always quoting things I learned from Click and Clack.

Oh come on, you can't tag me. I've practically answered all of these a while ago in an email I'm sure I copied you or the Octopus on. I won't blog about this. No way.

PS, you do know grammar. Just perhaps not in a systematic analytical sense. It's innate. It's what helped you learn English and Vietnamese. See: Theory of Transformational Grammar.

Three's Company - that was just on. That Chrissy is so funny...

you tagged me because you think I don't post enough. True but still evil. I've done one of these not too long ago as well that I'm sure I sent you. But, being a sucker, I will probably blog about it.
