Then it headed out with me to Las Vegas, then it followed me home to New Jersey and held me hostage for two days while we moved out of one house and into another.

Somewhere in the middle of all that, there was a few plane rides, a few train rides, one bike ride across the German border into Poland, and a complete viewing of 'My Name is Earl: Season One.' When all was said and done, there was a one full issue of Dig done, full of interviews, interesting spots and a smattering of humor thanks to the Sent Items page and Sandy Carson's captions.

Why BMX and no soccer? Because I pretty much hate soccer. A stupid game with their stupid fans. I hate coaches except the real Coach!
What's your record eating at McD's? Haha, uhm 47 Mc Nuggets. One day I had a little competition with some guys of my school. I ate 5 Mc Kroket (only in dutch Mc Donalds), 2 Mc Chicken, 1 Mc Flurry, 1 big banana milkshake and 3 big Coca Cola.
