    1. Not to worry, it’s Gretl but its just a pen name thing to keep me hidden away 🙂 Gretyl is actually quite cool as well now that you mention it haha. Ed Norton is great, he is one of my favourite actors. Rain man is amazing, I only recently watched the Leaving Las Vegas movie, thought it was really good. I’m going to add many more movies as well, if you have any good suggestions feel free to chip in.
