    melanie, I’ve logged in now but I still don’t know if I’m in your swap ?

    Am I as thick as a dinosaur sandwich ?

    Bye the way I am never letting Mrs Robot see your pages, you have the world largest list of shopping resources, it frightens my wallet to death.

    mr. roboto-

    okay, once you have a swap bot account and are logged in go to the drawing/painting swap, click sign up, confirm. and then you should be all signed up ready to swap–you’ll get your partner info on april 21st. to make sure you are in, just click on “your swaps” and you should see the drawing/painting swap listed there. last time i checked (this morning) i didn’t see you in my list of people signed up so you may want to double check!!!

    p.s. yes this site isn’t too good for wallets (unless you are looking to buy a new one), but it is good for people who have money burning a hole in their pocket…i don’t know about you, but i hate when i get holes in my pockets!
