Thanks Bacon, but i'll have to Decline. I'm happy with just a wee role as Mayor of South Bootia :) Also, I probably wouldn't have time. School has started again...

Well, school's started for me as well, but I still have plenty of free time.

As a matter of fact, I'm supposed to be in school now, but I've come down with a case of strep throat and will be home all day today and tommorow. Thats plenty of free time :D
