Yeah, not too bad a chance. The usual subsequent request from me is "Now, can I have a flop that goes with it this time?" ;-P

Re: Corrupt-a-wish

Granted. There is a sudden plague of locusts throughout the weekend, so you can't go out and enjoy things. The weather for next week is bees, and long range forecasts suggest there's a chance of frogs for the weekend after.

I wish I could focus on my work and not be thinking about my girlfriend.
