i thought the open thread (up there ↑) was getting too unwieldy being so long, so i deleted all the comments starting from 02/19/11 through 06/30/12.

omg, hbd chick!! what have you done?!?!

don’t worry. i backed them up here. (^_^) *whew!*

by “backing up” i mean “cut-and-paste,” which means the links don’t appear in the backup post. but i’ve got them in the blog backup files — so if you really want a link from an old open thread comment, just ask. (^_^)

that is all!
