Everyone wants to go skydiving lately. I’ve been asked by several people over the past year and they seem shocked that I say no. Why?

Made some changes

Besides a few cosmetic changes on the Home page (I’ll let you find them), I added the Blogroll page. Check that out to see what other blogs I follow.

Also, I added quite a few bullets on the About Vic Louis page. So check that out to learn some random fun facts about me. In addition there’s a link to my formspring account. You can go there and ask me anything. It’s anonymous and the question doesn’t appear until I answer it so no worries.

Now it’s time for bed. I know it’s only 10pm – don’t judge me! I’m lacking hours in the sleep department.
