Hey James!! You were really good in Dawson`s Creek, you and Jen were the best couple!!

narecaOct 31, 2007

stayed at the spa at norwich inn in norwich, CT in summer of 2000. Was loving all the attention everyone who spotted him was giving him. He went as far as sitting in just his robe in the middle of a common lobby and waited for people to fuss over him. However this made his female companion extremely unhappy to the point that she complained to the staff that they were looking at him too much.
