  2. Oh, I'd love to have one of this. I keep thinking to make one but never get to it.
    Well there is one thing I'm going to do tomorrow: I was told today that here in Ireland it is tradition that women can propose on a leap day, so that's what I'm going to do. We've been always talking about it and nothing happens, so I'm going to take the lead here!
