Argh_Dammit: I still owe her a favor....(a story) (get some cocoa)Awhile back, Abercrombie and Fitch said they only wanted pretty people to buy their clothes. It went back and forth on facebook - as all crap like that does - but I made a comment that I should find a boys large A&F shirt and pose in it (I am ... well...I am fat). A couple weeks later, I got a shirt in the mail. Then, this all started and I postponed.If you donate, I'll take the picture.(OK, I'll probably do it anyways, but donate.)
Argh_Dammit: daywin:It can not be as bad as the clown pictures from a couple of years agoYes,yes, it can.
cannotsuggestaname: Arghie is back?! Wait, when did this happen? I have missed seeing you around this joint. Who is next to return? LarsThrowald?
Argh_Dammit: That would be awesome. I've been back for awhile - I check in almost every day once or twice but I am quiet and scared and shy.
