Posted:keyarghah, the english dude you are thinking of is Chris, my lovely contact-juggly boyfriend. Pm or email me for his contact if you want. We'll both be in London from mid-January onwards.... Oh and if you'll be at woodford we'll be there too... Chris will be Mr Om's assistant in Circadia. I just checked out your profile to put face to (user)name and yeah I recognize you from CommonGround!

Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.
