  1. A C- average student takes it to being a multimillionaire. That’s amazing. Me *being the ‘nerd’ expert I am at CP* didn’t know some of these.

  2. YAY!!! You included moshi monsters! (Some day, I bet I will win award for “Moshi Maniac!!!” XD) I really want to be one of those people with the toys… I have club penguin, but not Moshi Monsters!
