Heh, on se hassua, miten erilaiset mieltymykset ihmisillä on. Mä yritin tuota Aikamatkustajan vaimoa kahlata läpi suurin odotuksin, mutta pystynyt, kun en tykännyt siitä sitten yhtään!
Ja tämän kommentoin, koska nyt mulla on sen pokkariversiona turhana hyllyssä ja lahjoittaisin sen mielelläni sulle, jos et sitä jo omista. :)
