Been a whole year o: How is everyone?

Pretty much to the day since I was last active apparently. I left cos of the whole internal politics thing (making slightly less of a fuss than several other departees ;)), but I never stopped thinking about you guys! I really have missed some of you, so I came to stalk, saw you were still active and thought what the hell? I'm getting old (25 almost guys!) and can't be arsed arguing anymore; I'm just here for shits and giggles xD

 

So, how is everyone doing? Have I missed anything in AVENland? Have any of you rascals changed your names to confuse me?

 

Labels wise I'm still literally the same - aro-ace, mechabromantic, agender, autistic, SJW and white as a bleached sheet. Oh, I am vegetarian now though (thanks to AVEN btw). I broke my ankle in April walking Sasha (my fat old dog) and had to go to physio yesterday cos it's still lagging >.< I ended up with a blood clot too, on my lung, could've actually died. Shit me up to tell you the truth so I'm a bit more mortality conscious now, trying to sort my shit out before I pop my clogs (for the uninitiated: die) for good.

 

Clutch and Blitz are still rolling (at 16 and 22 respectively o: ), Sasha's still running (13 in October, I can't even) and I have 9 adult snails at this moment in time - Io, Tethys, Callisto, Dione, Adrastea, Iapetus, Taygete, Lysithea and Telesto. Sadly, two of the snails - Ganymede and Europa - died a couple of weeks ago within days of each other. They were both at least 4 but could've been older (they were wild caught), and since no one else has shown any sign of illness, I think they just died of old age :( RIP sausage rolls.

 

Clutch and Blitz:

Oh I was just wondering about where you'd gone the other day! Glad you decided to come back :) I missed all your snail updates!

OMG ANTHRA I wondered where you were many times and was kinda worried that something may have happened to you (but I didn't know where to start digging to find out). Welcome back! I'm always happy to see the snails. :)

Welcome back old friend, I have changed my name a bit but I'm glad to hear you're mostly well. How are Clutch and Blitz? Any more repairs since you've been gone?

Sorry to worry you, I was just fed up with the arguing :( I don't have a massive online presence tbh x)

Gah, what's your old name, you peanut? >.< They're getting on but aren't too bad for their ages. Since I was last on they've both had new tyres (Toyos4Life) and I guess a few repairs. Blitz had to have some welding done, new HT leads and a new ABS sensor; he's also booked in for bodywork next month to stem the rust that's setting in. The arches and sills are notorious on E36s and he's no exception >.<

@SaturnOOO and I went walking in the Alps last August. We encountered snails quite a few times and always mentioned you! We were reminiscing about one particular encounter only a week or so back.

 

Welcome back.

Flower Boy, Retrobot, ~Syl~, and the list goes on.

Good luck with the bodywork on via bebo, never an easy thing but I'm sure he'll look dazzling afterwards. ;)

Well, you'd only just left when we did the walk. In fact we probably didn't even know that you'd 'left'.

Anthracite! I had wondered where you were. Nice to have you back. 😊 And yeah, the arguing is bad for my health... JFF/CB/Off-A are where it's at! Looking forward to seeing you around again!

(Those adorable pics! Sasha!! 😚

Welcome back!!! :cake: I/we missed you (and the snails) a lot! I didn't know you had a dog, though. Sasha is really adorable, and has a lovely name, too. ^_^
