maso said...

well, it's official ... as children, 1 in 5 blog commenters had ambitions to be an architect.

Ben McLaughlin said...

Deb- I could easily develop that passion I think

Jess- Cool career aspiration. We all assume you didn't follow thru with this, but it's highly probable that your current life is a ruse, and you really are a top secret undercover agent. Maybe even so top secret even YOU don't yet realise. Mind blown?

Karen- Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great day. Yikes- surprise party! ps- I love Tim Winton.What ones have you tried?

Pedro- I am highly suspicious of anyone who doesn't like The Beatles. Gosh, it's like not liking chocolate.

Wendy- I haven't heard of Pinterest. Maybe for the best?

Gary- vampires and zombies are like my bread and butter.

Kim- Heh, dim lighting, that's funny. By the way, I reckon you'd make a good news anchor!

Al- Was it because of Indiana Jones? Oh yeah, don't get me started on Star Trek. Bizarrely bad.

Maso- impressive stats huh.. who knew we were all closet architects?

George- Sounds like an awesome NYE!

Ruth- I hope its a wonderful year at home with your little boy. Looking forward to meeting him!

Simone- there's a new perspective on Paul?

Crazyjedidiah- I wish you could experience the joy that is Twilight.

Helen- I hope that health improves.. wow, first 12 o'clock stay up ever??
