Thanks for the welcome. But tell me something. Why is it that ever since joining 'the spoof' every time I get near my computer the hands on my watch start spinning wildly about. What's up with that?

It's a time-wasting mechanism built into the site. Prepare to age considerably over the coming days, my sweet friend -Ally
