Happy birthday to you,
You live in a tomb.
You look like a wi-ight,
and you haunt like one too!

Do we get a cake with candles and pink icing?

Oops.
Oops, oops, oops.
But I have a valid excuse.
I was on holiday and I JUST saw this. I have an alibi. The receptionist will vouch that I was in a hotel in a little town with no cybercafes. I plead 'not guily'.
Anyways, CONGRATS BW and the Team!!!! I feel like this site's been around forever. I cannot imagine life without the Downs. *sniffs*
Waitaminute, let me end on a happy note. Congrats once more!!!!

Stick poking. I approve. Did we have any of that at the last party? I can't remember... Limerick competitions, music playing... davem being hauled out in a wheelbarrow... There may have been a stick involved with that one.

I think I prefer this type of party; a lot less effort is needed.

But wouldn't it be cool if we all had a real party? In the same room with cake and everything!

That would be very cool, then we could all meet each other and see if the opinions we get of people online match them in real life.

Oh, and cake would be great too!

One year? Goodness. It seems far longer. I'm not being pretentious, by the way; reading the forums has been part of my routine for ages and ages...

But it was the Name Generators that first attracted me! I must have been about, say, twelve...maybe thirteen...

Dude, have you seen the number of 'meet-up' threads scattered over The Barrowdowns?! Cool...yet impossible. However, I suppose something complicated with webcams could be arranged....annything for the Cake!

Some things in life, y'know, they're just too precious, too serious to be joked about.
Cake...cake is one of those things.

*nods wisely*
