Think back to those "good old days" and share something special with us! \:D/

I remember when Bennett Charles took over the ToO and took away our avatars and money and fun. :sniff: I remember the crazy avatar that Top used on the TH during that time, with Bennett's head and a messy red X going through it. I remember Frank's Breakfast Inn, the totally cool fan site that Frank used to run, which had tons of hilarious AIO-related ads that she made! \:D/

Oh boy... I have many, many memories with my ToO friends! Some of my favorite are from back when Jonathan and I were admins for a term. That was great fun!

Of course, there are the great memories of the Shadowpaw fanclub, and of EB and his grooviness, and back when Top was single... Alas. Life is no longer as it once was. :noway:

Oh, and who could forget back when Jessica thought that Jonathan and I were dating? \:D/

Man, it's been so long since the ToO started.

I remember way back at the beginning (like, the first day..) wondering who Fenix was, and if he was a member of the TH. It's weird to think that pretty much all of the original members were from the TH. We have so many more people now. Yeah.

Another very early memory is that I remember when the first election was happening, I pmed EB telling him that I thought he should run for Mayor.

..and that was before Top/EB announced they were running. \:D/

It's annoying how much I've forgotten though. I do remember getting really annoyed at the first story-arc.. :anxious:

Other random things I remember are..

Witty banter with EK (and Frank, lol).. being pushed off of cliffs.. inflatable J-mans.. (no idea how those started O_O) being admin (it's odd, I remember very little of my term. Maybe I should run again for fun.. ;) )..

I wonder how many old members are going to come back. \:D/

I sent out over 50 invitations. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how many of those e-mail addresses are still being used. :p

I miss the Shadowpaw fan club. :sniff: He's so mean for not dropping by to flirt with us now and then to keep our hopes up. :x But of course, I can't dislike him for it. :inlove: *swoons*

I totally don't remember that Jessica thought that you and Jonathan were dating! :shock: That's hilarious!

I remember the I love Ham thread, that was actually he I love Ek(Or was it David O) thread and Shadowpaw actually posted in it, but then EK edited it and the whole thing got edited a billion times cause we were all skyping.

Toppicado and JF too!/The Unholy Trinity! Top Jessicado and I all met in real life and we were the first official ToO gathering. Me also joined us for a day. While we were gone, EB changed all our names to the Unholy Trinity. heehee

Yeah, I completely thought there was 'something' going on between Evil Chick and Jonathan. I figured they were just being shy about it or something. But I just knew that one day they'd come around to professing their love for each other! \:D/

Unfortunately, it never happened... :(

I remember when I tried to stamp avatars during my first election season, and make a few original ones, and they didn't always turn out very well.

I remember Gabriel Dragstack... I had been around just long enough to get what was going on.

I remember when I thought Shadowpaw would ban me.

...and I remember, two months ago, wishing that I had been part of the "I Love Shadowpaw Fan Club." \:D/

I remember when I thought Hillingdale Haven was absolutely stupid and refused to even look at it! :anxious:

I remember when Gabe turned out to be Regis and changed everyone's background! \:D/

I remember being very sad that I didn't win a "Miss" anything. :-

Also, I remember my feeble attempts at signature making... *sigh*
And the contest Frank had to design signatures for FBI! \:D/

So many memories. O:)

I remember thinking that Jonathan and AIOP were girls. *grin*
