    Screen mates!

    Okay I have done a terrible thing. I downloaded sheep.exe and currently have about 10 little sheep creating havock on my desktop.

    They are so sweet! I say 'terrible' because they create quite a distraction especially when one is trying to work. The temptation is too great. I cannot resist those little yellow and purple blobs no matter what I'm doing.

    Right at this moment one is wizzing all over my MSN window...

    Another attempting suicide off of a popup window...

    *How are these little creatures so alluring?*
    *Is it a conspiracy?!*

    Aww... one just died!

    One's doing a roley-poley!

    I thought the meteor sheep was the funniest
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Be careful what you ask for, mfc; you might just get it.
