Did you hear how Dave got totally catfished last month?! The fox he thought he was talking to turned out to be a pervy guy from San Diego!

:confused: didn't you used to live in SD?

Yeah, but not last month... :twisted:

Nice, they must be selling well too 'only 1 left in stock, order soon'. Madrid wax museum isn't the seller is it?

As much as I'd love to have Alonso there to greet me as I walk in my front door I think I'd stick with the weekend away and the race.

She hasn't posted a picture yet, so I don't think you can say if it is or not. Plus unlike plane jane, you or efflinity, she isn't an f1 fan.

If she was good looking, it;s more important that she is a free agent, although I doubt Geetface cares.
