    Our surname is Smith.
    A few years ago, when the movie Mr & Mrs Smith came out we got free tickets sent to us, just coz we were Mr & Mrs Smith.

    This morning, we had just woken up and the phone rang. It was some people off a local radio station, calling as part of a promotion for a new store that's opening here called Smiths City.
    They put me in the draw to win a new LCD telly, just for being a Smith. :happydance:

    It's being drawn on Friday. Hope I win!!

    Would be nice actually, my Gran died yesterday and the funeral is on Friday. Would make a nice start to a pretty grotty day. :)

    Must be nice to get those sorts of things lol, I don't think they do fun giveaways like that in Canada or I'm surely due for something.

    My last name is Turner so I've had to live with stupid "so you're related to Tina/Ted/etc" attempts at jokes or some sort of humor for a long time :rofl:
