Burns' Supper in 6 days...

Any chance of someone sneding me an English meal up? XD *joke*

Haggis is gross... imo, of course. Although many of you probably won't like it either.

Here's some of my personal ones

18th Jan - Grein Remembrance Day (Bye bye Grein... ='( ) *almost joke one*
20th Jan - Ai Remembrance Day (The things I do for onii-kun... Bye bye Ai... ='( ) *almost joke one*

17th March - Anniversary for the start of my roleplaying career (and getting my quality roleplaying badge, one year later) (nine years roleplaying coming up~!) *not a joke at all one*

My ONM b-day and real b-day are years apart.

Almost three of 'em XD

On ONM, I should be down as 17 (unless Jynx changed it without my knowing). However, I'm actually only 14 XD

Well, it's the 14th of February - Valentine's day.

As this the "event" thread, I thought it'd be wise to also use it to converse about said event(s).

So does anyone like the day (Valentine's Day)?
Did you get anything for the guy/girl that likes you..? Did you give anything..?
...& more...so, diccussy. =3
