Below find the abstract and readings for our next meeting, which will take place Thursday, October 18 at 8:30 at Jane Manners’s home (email me for directions).  These exciting readings were compiled by visiting grad student Mark Sholdice, from the University of Guelph. See if you can catch the authentic Canadian spellings…

Hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it, look for a synopsis of the discussion here to follow.

Patrick and I decided to go exploring together again, since we really have nothing better to do. Patrick went ahead to the Corruption island, because we haven’t actually explored that yet. Screenshots of that will be coming tomorrow ;D

We found a trapped bunny and then we killed our first Pinky :P we’re rich and we feel profound shame for not helping the bunny.

If “profound shame” made you think of S:S&S EP then we should be cosmic friends forever!
