Love the sentence - it's knot every day you get to experience a 'time warp' in an 'elevator' and take a trip 'around the world' - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-18: 12:25:00

Clay, huh? I hadn't realized that, but it makes sense. But of course I have a great affinity for yo-yos, and pocketwatches, and spiders... anything filipendulous. - Clayton, 2007-06-18: 19:27:00
