The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

I don't usually do these, but this one's nice and short.


1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person must post 8 things about their self on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 8 people and post their icons on the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
5. No tag-backs.


Eight Things
1.  I prefer PC's.
2.  I love bubble wrap.
3.  I was born in Cleveland.
4.  I enjoy playing the piano.
5.  Education is very important to me.
6.  My lowest grade ever was in art history.
7.  My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip.
8.  I have a pet cactus named Fenring who is older than some of my watchers.


I TAG anyone who reads this and is not wearing socks at the moment.  Yes, I know that's against the rules.

I almost never wear socks... (unless I'm wearing shoes)
But since I can't think of 8 people to tag, I think I shall pass on this, I feel guilty otherwise.

Fact number 8 rocks for so many reasons lol

Also, mint chocolate chip is my favorite, too. Neat :D

Ha, I actually have socks on so I'm saved! ... which is strange because I usually don't wear socks while I'm at the computer. Lucky break.

I love playing the piano too. ^^

I just wanted to thank you for promoting the Happy Hour, though I decided not to make any round this year as during the last round (it was on december 31st) no one cared about winning a prize and no one tried it... So well no more contests as people seems just to think they deserve prizes for doing nothing. :shrug:

I didn't know you could consider as a per a Cactus :paranoid:

A pet... Cactus?

Is it wearing socks?

Erm, no. And I think I'd be a little mad if it ever stole mine. o.O

Did you by any chance ever play a game called Legend of Mana? You had a character you played that could learn any weapon you chose, and you could forge weapons, raise monsters... And in your house was a cactus that, when you told it of your latest adventure, would run over to a journal on the wall and write his thoughts on your life. At one point, it even goes out to discover a cure to a disease.

Oh wow! No, I hadn't heard of that. It'd be cool if my Fenring could cure disease, but alas, he's just too lazy....
