True. Although my head is a bit bigger and my hair is a somewhat darker than Butters, there is defintely a resemblance there. :wink:

Oh yeah, and I do actually have chin too, unlike Butters.  :)

Just good old fashioned southern inbreeding.....my mom's side of the family are cajuns, so..... 8O

Cmon, no one thought I wasn't a  chubby little butterball?  :o But seriously, I think that's part of the fun of meeting up with other Acaeum members.  I remember I had a long online correspondence IMing with a Dallas Mavericks fan who lives in New York. Once we exchanged photos, and I was shocked to find out he was black.....he was shocked to find out I was white....honestly it had just never crossed our minds one way or another, we had a good laugh about it. Pity everyone can't be as "color blind" in real life.

The funniest part was finding a Blasted Land, Fez:Valley of Trees, and Beastmaker mountain at the bottom of the drawer....I had completely forgotten I had them!


Hey Mike, how many times are you going to loose track of these only to find them again?  :D

Wow, that's a callback....how can you remember these things when I don't???? 8O  So anyway, I decided the disappearing Mayfair items should find a nicer home where an owner doesn't lose track of them....Beastmaker and Blasted both were claimed by fellow Acaeum members this morning; poor Fez I (the runt of the litter) is still awaiting a new owner.
     I have this sickness called compulsive hoarding I'm trying to break out of (only half kidding.....)...all this stuff is nice to have, but when it keeps getting misplaced, it's time to find it a new home.  God knows what lurks in the depths of my storage shed....

Funny, Mike looks just like a guy I know who lives in Houston.  I think we're on to something here.  

Thanks for the pics and stories, guys.  Looks like a lot of fun!


Let mirth prevail!
