Wild Thing …

Wild Thing …

You make my heart sing. You make everything … so warm! First of all, I must say … the internet is a wondrous thing.  So wondrous in fact that … after having checked the weather forecast (otherwise known as  “Arctic Blast 2010”), I posted on facebook that I was “regretting my decision to not ask for a Snuggie for Christmas”.  I mean, I wanted a Snuggie, but I also wanted that “as seen on TV” ab roller plus a few…
