This comes from an old high school friend of mine, Tess. It came from her MySpace page, in the Bulletins section.
Unlike Tess, I don't really have any concrete reason for filling this in other than to pass the time in nervous anticipation of Tuesday evening ...

As long as it's edible. Minimise the chocolate though, not so keen on it.
