  2. I agree Janet is a total choy, and she owes me a coke because we both came to the conclusion that werewolves should be reffered to as: Double W’s at the same time. Therefore we were meant to be together.
    I wasnt on board at first with Eliot’s new” eye in the sky” cam, but I stand corrected.
    Man, that was great when Asher told Michael that he was mispronouncing the P vitamins. Classic Asher.

  3. Really enjoy the ‘Notes! I feel weird asking, but is the adorable gentleman in the Oliverism icon the real deal (I know Jimmy is understandably protective about pics of him), or is it just some other kid whose Grandmother made him dress as the Cowardly Lion?
