Hello Carrie - met you elsethread, but welcome to the CBB!

Don't forget there's also the SDL, where drabbles lie in wait for unwary travellers - you may find yourself wasting hours of your time...

If there's chocolate, I'm in! Shall we rig up a kettle and have tea too?

The only time I've ever had tea, it tasted like boiled water. In the past I didn't even like hot chocolate of any variety. Hot drinks will probably never be my style.

But on the positive side, nor will alcoholic drinks. :)

Hi, this is Finn's alcoholic student chatterbox hotline. I'm afraid I can't listen to your drunken ramblings right now, but please leave a message and I'll get back to you just as soon as you are sober.

:p
