Funny thing is, Yu-Gi-Oh! isn't my main obsession. Doctor Who is. Okay, I've got Dark Yugi as an avatar, but I like Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged, as well as the original manga.

Oh well. That card would be useful if I played it. :twisted:

But I have a better card. I call it the Alu-Card. :twisted: (Speaking of which, Ghost, have you ever watched either Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged, or Team Four Star's Hellsing Ultimate Abridged?)

No, but the Third Trumpet has been sounded[/snark]. Yes, I am bitter. Might as well call me Wormwood. :roll: :P

Still, can't complain about the presents so far. Next weekend, I'm off to the Lords of Time convention in Brisbane.

Anyway, thanks to all the well-wishers.

I was stuck I spent over 5 mins scrolling though seemingly endless pics of children’s birthday parties before I stumbled across that pic
I used to watch Yu-Gi-Oh! when it was on sky one but I never really got in to it Dragon Ball was my favourite at the time but that was a long time ago
