Quote of the Week

Whose bright idea was it to stack Warfs single-file to form a ladder, and how do they even stay stuck together at the odd angles, velcro? There has to be a better way of getting Kadoaties down from mile-high tree branches like, oh, I don't know, NEOPETS WITH WINGS?!

Top Topiaries

Tombola Guy: Well, 'snot too hard really. The small dainty prizes like the olives, I just get from the trading post at real low rates.

"Just One Little Question" by x_icecap
There was no distracting her at this time. Bored, the Eyrie left the room, happy to depart the hot room. Lea stayed, engrossed in her rather long book.
