Bio:
Well, that clears things up a bit, doesn't it? For those of you who don't know, I made the decision nearly a month ago now to delete no fewer than fifty-eight of my ninety-nine drabbles, leaving me with forty-one stories of reasonable quality.

This is a temporary bio.

I have another reason why Joey shouldn't do it: the Trips are in that class. Would YOU want your mum talking to you about sex?

Being overwhelmed by plot bunnies here. Want to write a CBB kind of drabble on here, like this one, only different plot. I also have 'Catching them at it' to finish and last but not least, I want to write a 'Five times' story, to name a few. It's going to be a long day!

Please could you explain the jigsaws, if I had seen that, my response would have been similar to Joey's.

Author's Response: It was an in joke on comments on a few drabbles at the time. A rude one :-D no way you could know what it was about. At the time there was a lot of Nancy and Kathy slash going on. I think the gist of it was a comment that Nancy and Kathy were actually quite innocently doing jigsaws rather than getting up to ... Whatever they might otherwise get up to!

Dickie Christie is cool! Will stop reading this now and update my own stuff, I bet I'm half off the most recent list! One funny thing: I had a nap today (ill) after reading this, and I dreamt that all the CS characters were on a social network site. Unfortuneately, it took a rude turn, me being in my early-mid teens and all that! Just spotted the spelling error, can't correct it, I always do that, sorry!
