Various News

Well, we just finished watching My Name is Khan. The phrases I said the most while watching it were “Oh. My. GOSH.” and “What the HECK?” because it was a bizarre experience. In fact, after watching it, I’ve decided to take back the happy birthday wishes for KJo, because I’m seriously freaked out now. No, I still love him.
