1) Cane: Google is your friend. (Your only friend.) Use your friend.

2) That photo of DK must be at least three years old. She dyed her hair a couple years ago.

3) Everything looks better... in LEATHER!™ I'll sell you a vidcap from one of the Girls' Night OUT parties for $100. But you have to beg for it. Beg for it, Biotch!

4) Most programmers look hideous - that's why they're computer programmers.

5) Who do you want photos of? I just might be going... Heh heh heh...

Press release: CUPERTINO, California — February 11, 2005 — Apple® announced today that Steve Jobs will begin selling his own feces to Apple Cultists beginning March 1. Apple's new iPoo™ lineup is expected to easily surpass the iPod shuffle as the company's most popular product. Yes, Apple Cultists can already easily create their own iPoo™, but feces didn't seem cool until Jobs told them it was cool. Remember, kids: the ONLY cool feces is Jobs' highly individualistic, rebellious iPoo™ (coming soon in six different colors/flavors, including the red [hematochezia] and black [melena] U2 GI bleed model)

>>>1) Cane: Google is your friend. (Your only friend.) Use your friend.

And what would YOU know about friends? BTW, how are the two kids doing back in Michigan? Are they reading that "Heather Has Two Mommies" book yet? Oh, right -- they'd first need to read "WTF Has Happened to Daddy?!!?"

Nope. Too much cleavage. (Unless there's a push-up lurking under the sweater.)

Don't go overboard with *your* cleavage. But then, you do like to draw attention to your mincing self...
