Welcome back, Possums. We here at ye olde raincoaster blog are still unclear whether CP Style capitalizes Possums or not, but we’re feeling our collective oats today (and also our coffee, which is beans and thus protein, right? RIGHT?) so we will allow it.

And we’re doing this from Ottawa.

We feel our complaints reached the proper department at last. 124 watching, with five minutes to go [two hours later, only 840 views]:Continue reading
