Which I hate having to write by the way. I didn't think it was possible to be socially awkward over the internet.

Anyway, greetings from England :) Land of tea and perpetual rain.

And Terence is a dirty Welshman.

Zumba is keep fit/dance that is far more entertaining than slogging away in the gym on my lonesome.

Hey there, I approve of your username, and therefore, I may secretly harbor a crush on you, maybe. (That was awkward.) I have no idea why I'm trying to impress you. I think it's because you use words like "jove" and "favourite" and yes, it doesn't matter if you're five thousand miles away and straight. (Makes my crushes easier to brush off.) Yay! (Think of it as your first public celebrity crush someone has on you. OR think nothing of it and we can start over.)

*Walks away and then comes back.*

Welcome!

Hahaha. If our bloodlines crossed way back when we should be hatin' on every other bloodline 'cause they ain't ours. That's how it works, don't you know?

You're using 'by Jove' incorrectly, but that's OK. Everyone gets one. And with that unpleasantness out of the way, welcome!
