YAY! Wa'alaikum assalaam.

Of course I shall pounce on such an opportunity! There's an email coming your way..

BTW... just in case you get ambushed by spamming preachers (as I did), you might want to delete your comment in a while, or else I will - it's dangerous to have your email on the loose like that.

Your blog's very cute!
