    Hi I'm ME!

    I'm a virgo, I like long walks on the beach and watching the sunset with bobby while enema holds the video camera. I worship my goddess, Irene, twice a day at midday and midnight, and I frequently go on biscut binges from some unconcious voice that demands me to eat them feeding my impulse. I...
