The Unicorn

Posted on January 13, 2010 at 12:30pm 5 Comments

Hi there Eric. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my new group The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
