Organized into folders. '''If you are here to vandalize, scroll down.'''

There's also a '''[[Quotes/{{Catfish42}} quotes page]]'''.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:About me]]
A bit on who I am then: I came here a while ago (I have no idea when exactly, it's been quite some time), though I am pretty sure it was via a link from IrregularWebcomic. I started reading, [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife got hooked]] and for a long time, I just lurked. Then at some point, I got myself a username [[OldShame to contribute to Troper Tales]]. At some point I discovered the forums and now I am properly addicted.

...You didn't expect me to tell who I ''really'' am did you?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Name]]
The "Catfish" part is from a movie quote, and I've been using it as an online username for a while.
The 42 is simply the ArcNumber of the {{Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy}} series (of which I`m a bit of a fan).
[[/folder]]


[[folder:Writing/Drawing/Stuff]]
I have just about no talent for story writing and my drawing skills are mediocre on anything but cars, boats or aeroplanes.

So nothing here.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Trope list]]

A little list of tropes that [[strike: apply to me]] somehow have come in contact with me:

* BerserkButton: Here and there, this and that.
* BlackComedy: I like it.
* BlatantLies: Frequently.
* CannotStandThemCannotLiveWithoutThem: Many people.
* CharacterTics: Rolling my eyes, mainly.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as good as some other people but I do have my moments.
* DidNotDoTheResearch: Rather irritating if I know better.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Useful.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Sometimes I am ''nice'' and ''helpful''. *shudder*
* RidiculousProcrastinator: I read the "leave a 10000 word paper until the night before it's due" and thought "that's me!".
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Caramel-filled chocolate. And Lasagna (yes, capital letter).
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Spiders?]]


Additionally, there's [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=6pswc5oj3xfv5jryme3ygx0h&page=1 that game]] where I've been accused of the following:
!!From "Tropefy":
* TheAce - Oh, I'd love that...
* AcePilot - About time I got that one! ...erham, yeah. Thanks.
* ANicePerson - That'd be, er... [[IncrediblyLamePun cool...]]
* {{Adorkable}} - ...well, thanks.
* AntiHero - Probably right...
* AwesomenessByAnalysis - Every now and then.
* {{Badass}} - Er...thanks I guess.
* BadassNormal - Oh yeah, I like that. Much better than superpowers.
* BloodKnight - ...[[FlatWhat what.]]
* CargoShip - Potholed from "Ship Lover". Er...''yeah''....
* CarryABigStick - As it was potholed from my title, ''Carrier Diplomacy'', I'd guess it refers to the quote by [[TheodoreRoosevelt good ol' Teddy]].
* ChaoticGood - When I'm in a good mood.
* ChuckYeager - I can only wish so...
* ColdSniper - My preferred video game tactic in fact.
* CoolPlane - My avatars, yes. And it ''does'' get a little old...
* CoolShip - I guess my hand-drawn aircraft design ''does'' look a bit spacey... or is it because of the carrier I had?
* DeadpanSnarker - Oh, I do hope so.
* [[DistractedByTheSexy Distracted By The Boat]]- Well, tha- '''BOAT!!''' Aww, ''niiice!''
* FISHOutOfWater - The name...?
* GeniusBruiser - Maybe not "genius", but...
* GenreSavvy - Yep. Or at least I hope so.
* [[NostalgiaFilter The Good Old Days]] - I like old cars and planes, so... yeah.
* TheHeart - Possibly.
* JerkassFacade - If that's what you think, I don't want to shatter your beliefs...
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee - I'd bet.
* TheLancer - Said [[{{@/Flanker66}} Flanky]], calling himself TheHero in the process. Fine with me.
* LawfulGood - You wish.
* TheMario - Yep. Also my preferred character/unit type in video games.
* MinoredInAsskicking - Yeeeah.
* MixAndMatchCritters - The name? Actually I just heard the word and thought it sounded cool...
* MoreDakka - Yeah. Short, controlled bursts is nice and good, but sometimes, that just doesn't cut it.
* NobleDemon - Ah, you got me there...
* PungeonMaster - ...when I feel like it. And when the puns aren't ''too'' horrible.
* ShownTheirWork - I'm doing my best to keep it up.
* TheSmartGuy - Reasonably smart, yes.
* StylisticSuck - On the self-drawn avatars. I'll take it as a compliment.
* SquishyWizard - Maybe..?
* TheStraightMan - Usually.
* SweetTooth - Mhmhmh...chocolate...caramel filling...
* {{Troperiffic}} - Yep, quite the list here...
* WideEyedIdealist - Er...not so much.
* White Knight (KnightInShiningArmor) - Ahhh,.... rather not.
* TheWoobie - Sometimes, I guess. Somehow, I try to hide it though...

* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: When I put my headphones on to listen to music, that is my way of saying "I don't want to talk to you now, so just shut up". The good thing is that when you have heaphones on is that people automatically assume you can't hear. But maybe your music is not that loud. And then it's a great way to listen in on any conversation.
* JustPlaneWrong: You can trust in me to spot it.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Sometimes I am ''nice'' and ''helpful''. * shudder*
