    You will recieve credit in the dedications of the first novel in the series. Sadly, providing inspiration in itself does not entitle you to any of the surely substantial royalties.

    £35 isn't that much, and the quality isn;t debatable thankyou! It's a sethtop, horizontal stripes, which is also good cos i am skinny and it makes me look a little more bulky!

    - most anyone has ever spent on one item of clothing?
    Eh? What the fudge is that? I always buy preshrunk t-shirts. It avoids that problem. I like stripeyness though...

    £105 for my boots :cool: worth every penny!

    can i play the lead in the broadway production? I am 5"10 and insanely good-looking, although not in a threatening way, I think I would be perfect in the role as the guy who forgets to read the label at first, but learns the error of his ways by the end of the play.
    Yes. Yes, you may.

    Read the Lable

    Your role is essentially that of the tragic hero, yet with more than a small hint of black humour. You will fail to read the label; the label, lest we forget, being symbolic of the secret that defines our own existence. Despite vehement advice from your mother (Julia Roberts*) and months of soul-searching, you fail repeatedly to see the basic secrets that would allow you to find your true destiny as a small-town detective. Your tragic flaw, your utter ignorance of "the label" leads to the breakdown of all the great relationships that you share. After the suicide of your wife, drowned after jumping from the Golden Gate bridge, you decide that your life has no meaning, and decide to do the same, following her into oblivion.

    It is only in following her path that the label blows into your face on the way down, and that you realise the truth. Sadly, by then, it is too late.

    Your remaining, orphaned daughter (Elisha Cuthbert) and father (Michael Douglas) then get together in the conclusion to an incestuous sub-plot, and come to realise the true meaning of Christmas.

    Truly, a tragedy for our times.

    Well, you should always hand wash bras anyway, so what's the problem?

    On the subject of 'reading the label': perhaps you might consider purchasing a family-sized tub of aspirin, neglecting to read the label, and subsequently allowing intuition to determine a 'necessary' level of consumption.

    And if you don't have a headache: fret not - I have a perfectly serviceable mallet.
