    Anyway. love these. :)

  3. gotta admit, i didnt read the whole thing cause thats a mighty long list there! -but an excellent one at that.

    i love any europe references you have there. oh my gosh. i feel like its my destiny to be there. live there...i dunno. i just love everything french really. so yes, one day

    also, about the 'real encore' one, im not sure what you meant by it, but ive noticed lots of ppl here in utah at theatre and music performances ALWAYS give standing ovations. i just dont get it. i dont think they get it actually. not everything is outstanding..
    im gonna stop myself before i seem like a cynic. haha

    nice list!
