Rumours from the grassy null 

A few little matters today.
   Megan Robinson is running a poll on Thread on favourite () fashion . If you are a Lucire fan, please vote for us. I’m not sure how long the poll will go for.
   We may have traced the person who began some negative rumours about , and she’s the editor of a well circulated . All it takes is an eyewitness who hates you and becomes a grass. Any more specific and I might be ungentlemanly and reveal who she is.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
