OMG! Thanks for the Add!

We're a little embarrassed about it, but we've got ourselves a MySpace page. What can I tell you? All the kids are doing it. In the 21st century, one's value to the world is apparently judged by the number of MySpace 'friends' one has.

But we just started the page. That's our excuse, and we're sticking to it. That said, if you're a MySpace user, please add us as your friend.
