Alien Abduction Theory
Hi my name is Carlynn and you have come to my webpage. I hope you
realize that you are here. Because if you don't, then that's kind of
a problem. Although, I mean, nothing that can't be solved by a

And like, hi, this club owns a copy of the First Folio. Like, don't even start with me. Don't even bother taking the first step down that road because it's a waste of your energy.
But four young Oysters hurried up,
All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat --
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.
No feet. No feet at all. I will meet you later in somebody's office.
