"Do you want to be famous?"
I want to be bigger than Michael Jackson and the "parked domain girl" combined. I would also like to be rich. I need lots of money to support my online shopping habits. Weekly massages, luxury items for my pets, a chauffeur, and drinking Jamba Juice on a daily basis, would also be nice. If anyone reading this can help me get famous or rich email me at Parker@parkerkooito.com.
