Dear John, We attended the movie you were waiting for, Casino Royale. Strange that you were the one who actually read the Ian Fleming books for content, and understood them. Me, I learned step one of speed reading whilst looking for the steamy scenes. We took Veronica, the girl who keeps coupons in... Sign in to see full entry.
