    Hmmm, I hope this works. It worked great for me, but when I received it, it was perfectly centered, the whole thing, especially that paragraph. Oh well, good luck!

    It didn't get me, for which I am grateful - I was an editor by trade before turning to fulltime mumhood, so I'm glad I haven't lost it yet

    I don't know, it might be the messed up positioning I guess... The majority of the people I know get only, one got 4.

    Oh well...

    MM, it might be a matter of opinion what it is you have lost.

    I've seen this mind game before, and counted three the very first time, so this one wasn't new.
