Re: [IPk] Mind Warp: Pump side effects

Hi Julian

I am sure that you are an excellent candidate for a pump.   When you get
your pump (and I am sure that you will go down that route eventually)  we
can have a naming quiz.  You know,  like  Blue Peter,  viewers choose a name
for the new puppy!  We can all mail you with our chosen name then you
choose. Then you will be relieved of all responsibility of having given it a
name yourself.  What about Rumpy Pumpy!?!? You can also get nice furry
animal cases for them to go in to. So I've read.
