Really quite encouraging. If people were brave enough even then, well there is definetly hope in the world.

These are brilliant. I'm in the middle of writing a novel for NaNoWriMo, and the fourth photo could almost be my guys.

This also puts paid to some people's comments that "they would never have any cutesy stuff like photos or jewelery".
