Awesome crazy 8's! I love the "you dont have to fill your life to have a full life" saying, whoever says that must be a real intellectual. BTW I love all your nakey pictures, never stop taking them, well stop when they get too big or that would be wierd.

Ok, Audra, you knew me during me mean weird days at EA...does it at all worry you that so many of our answers are the same? And I'd LOVE to hear you say Freaking A! I say it about every day, but sweet little Audra?! NO way! I say who's your favorite mom too! Kam usually says daddy. PUNK! Anyways, I LOVED reading this! Good stuff.
