  1. Hiii  Marilena  ..  haha did u see Amy Winehouse….How long  will she last???  with all do respect..
    but  he I read u like Face Book???
    well im also  there..but i have problems  with finding  my stuff…i think its a bit  disorganised…
    wlel i ried to put positiv  stuff….
    but i concluded  thats   very difficult…
    enjoy ur weekend  ..and a warm hug

  2. hmm yeah but compared to MySpace it’s much better! Talking about disorganized 😛 They didn’t have Windows Live Spaces as an option, otherwise I would have chosen this website 🙂 Last.fm I love but nobody I know is on that site so it’s kind of boring 😛 YouTube yes sure you can find any video you want but I’m not crazy about videos in general so not my favorite website. Bebo never been 🙂 So that’s how I chose Facebook, plus when you get to spend time there it’s kind of addictive 🙂

  3. Hi , Thanks for popping by my space, Im sure you dont see much snow in you part of the world. 
    I love the "Killers" too, they are playing this year at the Reading music festival in August, I’m looking forward to seeing them play. YES! Hot Fuzz is a great film too, mine you Control was a good film as well.
    Have a nice week. Duster
