Mintleaf : (24 October 2014 - 04:14 PM) Oh but you are evil, Bea :sean: Although I would be exactly the same. Pizza stealing is a grievous crime.
Antiquity : (24 October 2014 - 04:11 PM) I'm not evil. I promise. :P
Antiquity : (24 October 2014 - 04:10 PM) This isn't as bad as shaving cream in the oreos...which I've also done... right?

Antiquity : (24 October 2014 - 04:10 PM) I'm going to say this is deserved because last night she also basically called me and my other roommate out and said that our science degrees were easy and she could have easily been an engineer if she wanted to. -not appreciated-
Antiquity : (24 October 2014 - 04:08 PM) You know how pizza delivery comes with those spicy red pepper packets... :sean:
