I'm an organisation freak, so getting the new apartment in order has taken up much of my time and energy. Still so much to do... Not to mention getting used to the novelty of DPX and I actually being able to live together :shock: now that his immigration is complete.

Anyway, "hi" everyone. :D I'm glad to see many familiar faces here. I hope to start being more active in the next couple weeks.

Jules, Milo is adorable as ever. :D

Welcome here, DPX!

I've been lucky enough to have some ongoing contact with Maia and DPX through the QfmG forum, where they're sometimes able to appear. DPX is often the one to post the most thought-provoking topics. Do you know... I think DPX may be the most changed individual I've ever encountered online. My earliest memories of him are of someone whose gusto sometimes outpaced his diplomacy. Now - he's smart, funny and tactful without being milquetoast.

(Maiandra has always been one of the most beautiful people online. She's a shining presence. It was fantastic to see these two draw together... engaged, now married, and now finally able to set up house together!)

Why, thank you, Almirena. *smile* You're always ready with an eloquent compliment. We both count ourselves lucky to have had a chance to get to know you as well.

Jules, it is indeed good to have the tags! *vigorous nod* Not the proportions we once had on the Sierra forums, so only a few of my old ones can be adapted for this forum (those that show the entire figure just look lost at this size). However, it's certainly better than no individual images at all.

Thanks, Collector! That's awesome. :D

I knew the option of bigger tags would bring Tin out of the woodwork. ;)

Hi Shewca!

Tell us a bit more about you? Whence did you arrive here?

Enjoy your stay!
Talk to coffee? Even Gabriel isn't that addicted!
