If so, at what point did you decide not to get involved? Or did you? (Big juicy kiss to GG, love you baby.)
Now what do I see? I see weblog art. The button represents the Come As You Are philosophy of Dogma 2000. Web Energy forever. Yeha, he mis-spelled Governor. And I mis-spelled yeah. Let's hope it was an accident.
