What is old news to some of you is that I'm not dating Anne anymore. We're still working on being friends, but I've got a bit of defense work to do--I said I felt like I didn't know when the relationship would ever end, and then a week later the feelings came to an end and I called off that part of it.

(507 Saratoga Rd., Scotia, NY)
so my brother and I end up going there every holiday.

My interest is waning, but I keep going and we still haven't won--whether we have a few people or a whole bunch.. We've been within a couple questions of winning, but so has everyone else. It all gets started a little after 9.
