My friend's boyfriend, who recently turned 20, informed her that he was "twenteen", because, as he put it, "you're not really out of your teens until you're twenty-one". :-) -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'. Everyone's just a big dork or nerd, you just have to find people who are dorky the same way you are." - overheard ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
