A Post A Day: Hogwarts Sock Swap TWO

July 24, 2007 Posted by Vaire

I'm in! Woohoo! I applied too late to be admitted to the first year of Hogwarts Sock Swap TWO straight away. I was put on the waiting list and I got in today. Yay! The reason to be so exited about a swap is that I've missed the community and a common theme/goal of swaps. I'm in! Woo!
