Well, I guess I couldn't stay away. I've hit one of those times where I just CRAVE being an AB. Lasted 3 weeks, though...
Okay, in the time I've been gone I officially got my pilot's license (I had been putting off the checkride since last year), graduated high school, and turned 19. Actually, all of that happened in the same week. Graduation and my birthday were the same day.
I got plenty of birthday money and used it to buy 3 new tobacco pipes, and just placed an order for a 30 pack of ABU Cushies.
There are some discussions that I just can't stay out of - I noticed a few of them while lurking.
