  9:07pm Bucky Fucking Dent:

When is the Del Fuegos' song? Barance Whitfield and the Savages?
  9:07pm Androu B.:

I think that's partly my fault, Mom Whig. Two weeks ago i made the mistake of coming onto this week's chatboard last week, thinking I was on the right chatboard, but didn't realize my mistake until 15 minutes later! I guess this was the consequence of notfying Harry about it and having him correct my faux pas.

She's almost 4 months old... We'll be busy chasing her around eventually... I think I have a picture of her rockin that hand position months ago. It was rad to see her make it, she was never taught how to do it... She's gonna be a rocker
