Right, ok then. Let us type this entry that none shall read and less shall care about...

I'm Australian, with Scottish parentage. No idea where my username came from, but I've called myself that online ever since the internet started (and yes, I was around for that). I currently live in Central-Queensland, for those fellow Aussie tropers. Favorite city is Brisbane, but that's hardly going to be a shock to anyone's system.

I first stumbled across TVTropes around the end of 2007 and it has been my favorite website ever since. I can blame it for 75% of my wasted [[strike: study]] time.

Ridiculously big fan of DoctorWho, bordering on unhealthy. Putting links to some of the DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse trope pages, which I think [[NeedsMoreLove need some love]]:
* BigFinishDoctorWho
* VirginNewAdventures
* EighthDoctorAdventures

I can thank TVTropes for introducing me to some truly great pieces of art;
* ''TheWire'': The most well structured, thought out and detailed series I've ''ever'' seen.
* ''DeepSpaceNine'': I was always kinda fond of StarTrek as a good bit of fun, but this was the first Trek series I considered solid television.
* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': Just a simply excellent series.
* ''MalazanBookOfTheFallen'': ...as is this. Another nice, meaty fantasy series.
* ''TheDresdenFiles'': This is just a ''fun'' series of novels.

By way of balance, I have also [[BileFascination become a "fan" of]]:
* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'': Good god this is just awful. I understand I'm not the target demographic, but there is just ''nothing'' to like about this series, be it the writing, the plot or the message.
* ''SwordOfTruth'': Of the few I've read, the poster-child for SoOkayItsAverage. Which is fine, if it weren't for the fact TerryGoodkind is a bit of an asshat.
* ''JackReacher'': Delicious GuiltyPleasure, and great SnarkBait.

I have [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness a tendency to use 10 words when 3 would be fine]], because I'm a pretentious git, my guess is. I also try to make a point of being friendly in my posts - we're all here to worship at the altar of entertainment at the end of the day, so if a post of mine has ticked you off, apologies and it probably wasn't intentional.

I ''love'' the various tropes and entries that go into how scientifically plausable "plot-point X" was in "TV Show Y". It was probably that that attracted me to here in the first place. Great stuff.

Currently [[{{Understatement}} less than pleased]] with the Australian Labor Government's plan to introduce a [[MoralGuardians nation wide ISP-level filter]] that they will [[BigBrother have complete control over]]. It is a sad state of affairs that it takes my home country ''turning into China'' for my political apathy to be roused.


For now, I'll restrain myself from putting a "Tropes that describe me" section, as part of me always feels those sound like a troper crying out "Woohey! Look how ''quirky'' I am! LOL!" (I will cave eventually, I'm sure) Instead, I'll put a space here for others to put comments in, should they so please. Think I'm a douche? Understandable. Think I'm pure unrefined awesome? Well, you're probablly a SockPuppet...

Since you don't want to add tropes for yourself, I'm going to start adding ones for you based on close to zero knowledge about your personality and life.

* BadassMustache (actually clean shaven)
* JerkassFacade (no facade. I'm usually quite nice and personable)
* ModernMajorGeneral (my competency at my job has yet to be fully revealed)
* MadDoctor (This example has been added simply because I thought it would go well with the mustache.)

{{Grimace}}: Holy crap. I think I just snort-laughed lemonade out my nose. You have just made my day.

{{Cambdoranononononono}}: Hooray! In retrospect, I completely missed the opportunity to say "Woohey! Look how ''quirky'' you are! LOL!" at the end.

[[{{Goodyfun}} goodyfun]]: You have now made me officially regret that I had not made my own profile interactive. Woohey!

Hey, you just missed some sticky lady. She was asking for you.
