*DIES LAUGHING* I can't believe you tried a Twinkie because of Omorphi, Serith!!! I'm glad the story broadened your horizons, though I must admit, I had hoped that you'd take better things away from the story. I'll accept the award. I don't mind the blame. :D LMAO!

Serith Fun fact: I just tried my very first twinkie because of the amusing "twink" conversation between Michael, Jake and Christy.

Not so fun fact: It’s slowly ruining my life. Ignorance was bliss but now I’m an addict of this sugary cake and it’s all your fault. (...this roughly translates to: thank you for the introduction / reminding me of my strange bucket list that includes trying abstract deserts *snicker*snort*)
