I love Filthy Otter and no, jp820 is not me, though I imagine we have similar tastes. :)
Other news: my laptop is officially fixed so as long as I have wireless at my place, I'll be a little more free to be on the Internets.
As for me and B, we're currently taking a break. And it isn't simply my drinking that is the issue, but that is his story, so if he wants to tell it, I'll leave it to him to do so.
We are both, however, hopeful of getting back together.
