I am Hlaoroo. I'm from Down Under (or Up Top as we like to call it). I don't like shrimp (or prawns as we Aussies say) on the barbie - in fact I don't like seafood at all. However I am a huge fan of all creatures great and small as is evidenced by my current enrollment in veterinary school.
I particularly like Australia's native fauna as well as dogs, ferrets and rabbits. I'm a huge bookworm and I don't usually like comics, however I've made an exception for Housepets - after all, who wouldn't?

Welcome Hlaoroo!
Haven't read Watership Down in a few years. I should probably pull that out again.
Glad you've come to join us. :D

I wondered how many people would know where my name was from. ;) Watership Down is my favourite book so you should definitely pull it out again!
(HLaroo? HIaroo?)
It's HLaoroo. It means "Pipkin" or "small depression such as that made by a daisy in which dew can collect" in Lapine, the language of the rabbits in Watership Down.
I see that you like the Eragon series
I do indeed! Aside from Watership Down they are my favourite books. I've actually just bought a shirt with the quote in my signature on it. :D

Welcome Hlaoroo and lasthunter!

@Hlaoroo: Woo, go Australia! :D I like prawns but I don't think I've ever had them grilled or BBQ'd. :P Good luck with veterinary school! Check out the Reading Discussion thread if you ever want to discuss books.

@lasthunter: So do you feel shame that you don't post your fan fics or do you not post your fan fics out of shame? :P Seriously though, you'll probably never find a better group of people to get friendly advice from, go nuts! ;)
Feel like you need a friend? I'm happy to talk anytime! :D

Hi cherry (cherry ? that fruit they put on top of the ice cream cup ? that cherry? :lol: )
don't worry everyone here is very nice so you generally don't have to worry about that , though recently I've been hearing some scary stories about a squirrel that will come out and throw acorns at anyone who breaks the rule , even the none-written one like " do not scare new members with scary stories".....
...huh.....

Yep. I'm new on the forums.

Anyway, my name is Spens. I've been following the comics since early 2010, and I'd have to say so far my favorite arc so far is the 2012 Christmas arc with Bailey and King. It takes a lot to make a man shed tears of 'D'awwwwww!'

Wilkomenn! You have been following this much longer than I have. Be sure not to miss the upcoming arc where I go to crash the wedding!

Thanks Sleet. I think leeches are like the friend that always mooches off of you and gives nothing in return, That's how I've always thought of them at least. Special in their own weird way.

You've been following this comic a heck of a lot longer than I have. I found this comic back in mid-2011.

You guys will have to go back through archives. There's some great comics in there! I especially love the one where Peanut tries to wake Grape "quietly". :mrgreen:

By the way, McFly, I'm guessing you're a fellow "Back To The Future" fan? :ugeek:
