Year of Popping Cherries

Posted by Ruok On December - 28 - 2005

As the year draws to a close, I thought it would be nice to note down all the cherry popping I have done all year. (Yeah, I’m a real rogue ain’t I? 😉 ) Its gonna be a long post, so grab a cuppa of your fav drink and read on if you wanna…

This has been a really weird year for me, in the sense that I feel like I’m being unleashed into the world all over again. Why? Because I have been experiencing a lot of “first times” this year. So without further ado, here’s the list, in errm order of remembrance (not preference hor) :
