Anyway, yeah, some where complaining about the new member -introduction threads, which do clutter the forum a bit. So, new people, post introductions here, and consider yourself welcomed. Older members can/should also post a paragraph or two about themselves.
Also, avoid discussion in this topic if possible.
Might as well start;
Hello, I am Jethro Q Walrustitty
, at the moment, 20 years of age, and from the exotic land of Finland. I'm a first year student in english at my local university, and I'm not doing a very good job at it, seeing that from the recommended 43 study poinst per year, I've racked up 16 by now.
I've loved reading, and watching TV since I was a kid, and allready then I was somewhat aware of certain structures, like how Nancy Drew books allways had the arbituary mini-cliffhanger at the end of each chapter. I found this wiki after I complained on one forum, on how the supposed 'intelligence' agencies and criminal 'masterminds' couldn't build bombs that don't beep/tick/blink/have a visible timer/visible explosives/all of the above, and another user (plague be upon his house), linked me to a few relevant articles, and one link lead to another
, and here we are today.
I still read books every now and then, Pratchett, mostly, but I've passed my prime with that hobby. I also like Animu, which I got into through Sailor Moon, DBZ and Magic Knight Rayearth (and Silver Fang years before that, but that was before I even knew there was a place called Japan
), though, there was a gap between initial introduction and really getting into it (Death Note got me into anime more big time, it, and this wiki). I also watch a lot of other kinds of TV, but besides Life On Mars, there are few series I watch for any other reason than to snark about it (speaking of which, CSI starts in five, so I have to hurry). I'm very staunchly to the left, politically, and resigned from the church on my 18th birthday. I listen to a lot of music, which a lot of people say, but few really mean. I've only went to the cinema to see a movie a handfull of times on this millenium, less than once in a year. I don't really like chocolate, and I don't have a favourite colour, nor do i really like long walks on the beach.
This love so bold goes undeclared/a joy unseen, a world unknown/a love that dare not speak its name/hidden treasure, precious stone
