Happy New Year

Remember: If you go out and have a "few", don't drive. We want to see you here next year, or tomorrow. Whichever comes first. :lolflag:

We are on IM at the moment.

I said I was psychic (because I could tell his keyboard is greasy because he told me he is eating pizza) and also predicted he would get an infraction next week for posting spam (see the Cafe Games)

He mentioned that K.Mandla would give out refractions by request (actually, I knew the name, he just said a mod) (see the resolution center) and I would ask K.Mandla to give him one.

I saw this thread and posted it here, no need to bother K.Mandla with a PM.
