04:00 start writing that note instead of just going to sleep; my before sleep talk with A (becoming kind of a habit, no? :)
04:40 go to sleep


And now imagine that a weekend like this has been on for almost 6 weeks now. The moment I leave Mcity, I'm giving up partying. Srsly.

It's a damn' hard life! (that leaves you tired like hell)


However, there must be something I've been doing right - can't remember the last time my fingernails were so healthy :D

No ba, jasne, że znajdziemy czasu trochę. :) W końcu opowieści z pierwszej ręki to jest to co tygrysy i inne Stworzonka lubią najbardziej.

A komentowanie — no jak się loguje przez OpenID, to powinno być miejsce na wpisanie kto się spisał, anie jaki ma identyfikator. Za bardzo chyba narzekam, olej, to winna Google. :D
