Also - the orginal name of Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting was titled:
"Monna Lisa" 
Monna is the common italian shortening for Madonna - meaning My Lady

As if you needed an excuse.

I didnt know pregnant goldfishies are called Twits. Thats great. I have a friend called I wait til she's pregnant to tell her...hmmm

excellent my job as medical artist is on stand-by.

defs wait till your Fish friend is pregnant.
then - as a consolation prize - at least she can eat all the bacon she likes.

Ah BACON - my husband has always joked that Zoe and I are addicted to it, and now I can't wait to tell him that it's a proper, real addiction with chemicals and names and stuff. (Great to know we're not just greedy haha!)
