  5. @ samit- Hmmm…I wouldn’t mind buying 50 copies, or even 100…just give me a couple thousand dollars while you’re at it.

    @ #3tiYo>B_shyo> – I don’t watch any TV unless I really have to, so I wouldn’t have heard of Mondo Magic. But I’ll still check it out.

  12. Ah, Little Britain! Cool at first glance, but not so good when you get into it.

    But waiting eagerly for your book to reach here. Best of luck.
