    What will be funny, is when you also get a ranking in the Top Male Bloggers in Africa ;)

  3. Island Chic // 21 October 2008 at 05:46

    Whew! If they thought you are female and they were SURE i was a woman, it makes me lesbian? Dammit!

    LOL, now that is a slap in the FACE !!

    Well, again - good publicity.

    LOL, great exposure for your blog one way or another.
