  1. Funnily enough Mike I have been doing both of those things out here for years now, but eating vegetarian pizzas is a new thing for me.
    I would appreciate you keeping the other things quiet though

  2. A nice vegetarian pizza? surely the next step is wearing a dress and calling yourself Rita!
