block of text to be a daunting task. So, instead of me
demonstrating my inability to string together a coherent
description that doesn't do you (or me) justice, how about some fun

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmm... so I don't know what I'd consider myself really

reasonable part of my brain politely informs me not only would that
work in the slightest but they'd sweep the floor with
me! (Plus, I don't know if I could handle Ramsay's inevitable

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I don't know if I could come up with 6 things here, I'm pretty
