1- Reach the holy writings after seeing one verse quoted on a facebook status. Since it can be poetic, but also creepy.

Mais putain, il y a des choses un peu […]

Things about TV programs

03/09/2010

He descubierto una cosa bastante guapa sobre la televisión. Mirad… ¿sabeis lo guionistas? Bueno pues, creo que llevan un par de años con una apuesta entre ellos.
