Springfield

After two tearjerking episodes of Sailor Moon Stars, I caught the bus to Springfield. I ignored the video service, a documentary on Robin Hood, in favor of a randomized song selection in my own ears. I drifted off at one point, and awoke with my ear numbed from being squashed against the headphone. I hope I learn from this.

It's been a few years since I last saw darkling_dreams, but it felt as if no time at all had passed. Sure, she has an iguana now, a spectacular vegetarian lizard who loves his fruit, but her cat and her snake were the same, and she was still a great deal of fun to talk to. We played word games at the airport while waiting for revengel to arrive, and then, our evening's social group intact, finally went for a late dinner. She told me I had to watch some Kenshin and Escaflowne at some point, and that I might like the Soulcaliber games. We looked at pictures from our year at York, and I remembered all sorts of FreakSoc folks that I'd forgotten all about, and many that I remember fondly. Does anyone know what ever happened to Sam? We talked into the night before we all crashed, and, the next morning, after being entertained by the iguana eating a banana, I left for Cape Cod.

revengel was a great deal of fun to be around, in part because I unfortunately kept misunderstanding what he said. We have many of the same bad speaking habits you see. We both speak too quickly and fail to enunciate sufficiently when excited. We both are prone to unexpected tangents mid-conversation. Between us, it was an entertaining challenge to keep the conversation straight.

Do you mean an iguana? Cause an Iguanodon is a hadrosaurian dinosaur. If she really does have an Iguanodon, ask her where she found one that's not extinct, cause I want one too! :P

Yes indeed. A little ignorant inattention combined with a cute nickname really threw me off. Thank you, oh paleontologist!

*apologizes for web browser issues & butting in*

Definately just a normal, teen aged iguana. But as the nickname for him is 'The Iguanadon'...although I tend to think of him as 'The Don' or somethingorother...and it does NOT have a permantly spikey thumb ~_^

I had a blast hanging out with you owlfish...even if the lack of sleep and the amount of sugar trasfromed my speech from normal speed to 300 baud!

But aerinah if I find a true hadrosaur...or a Triceratops (always was fond of Ceratopians) I'll let you know.

I'll check on Ebay.
