... sucking Spinnoli, so they can steal each other's food, and poop in matching colours.
This is just wittering, basically, to test out this blob thingy, so probably won't write much more before launch date, which is currently Mon. Nov. 11th. I say currently, because they have already changed at least 3 of our flight times and we havn't even left yet. ...
