I have a huge boner for this girl I met in Cambodia. I Facebook stalked her and it says she was born in 1991. It just hit me how I am gettin' old.
Interesting, what kind of work do you do?

I think conditioning leather is an overrated concept for the majority of shoes out there. You're just doing something aesthetically pleasing, furthermore most shoes have topcoats on...
