Sorry to spoil the run, chaps: happily hetero here (but fully supportive of your lifestyle choices). The name is considered a bit naff down under, which is a pity.

I don't know why, but people keep on asking if i'm a minion? I don't really know if anyone else has this problem and if you do, you should come out.
