Hello, possums

Not that you noticed but I've been away for a few days, heading back to Australia for Christmas.

Did I miss anything? Gossip, trollery, crisis? Update, please. (Reps also welcome...)

Um...AC had his avatar changed to a dog temporarily per my request one day.

He changed it back.

Big Words got a strange avatar in retaliation, too, and I momentarily got changed into Justin Bieber.

It was then the world ended.



Welcome back!

Welcome back to Australia!

It's freaky, Christmas is less than a fortnight away. The last few weeks have just flown by.
