Plaid flannel Pyjama bottoms, plaid boxers underneath, and an Izod orange and white ringer T-shirt 3. What is your current problem? Unfortunately, to many to name here succinctly á l'instant, but I'm sure you'll hear all about them eventually 4. What makes you most happy? Madrid, Genève, Montréal, delicious products, lazy rainy days with Mr. Gordo, being with my closest friends (La Zeez, The Voice, The Fierceness, La Donna, Big Sis, Skanque Huore, La Antropóloga, Mr. Polemic, and El Babycito, La Vicks, Prancilla, et al) 5.
