I’ve got this friend… who basically drives me crazy

He's really nice though! If you want a nice, friendly, attractive guy, he's totally it. However, you should know that he will never hold down a "real" job. I'm just trying to let you know what you're getting in to. You see, multi-tasking is just not his thing. For some folks, that's okay. "No big deal!" they say  For me, it's just not going to cut it.

Test Drive

Look Out, It’s a Flash Mob
