suggesting?! heh! Very creative, purple! (May I call you purple?) - Jamagra, 2008-04-02: 07:53:00

I dunno James, why don't you just make the comments more succinct; say something like, "Wow, that's a really, really, crappy word! Care to join another site?", and give a link to Hooked on Phonics. Of course I jest... I love the verbsnottery! And thanks for the sentence! Jamagra, I think Miss Speller may be a better moniker for me. - purpleartichokes, 2008-04-02: 09:44:00
