Getting to know you

So I figure, the board has been open now for 2 1/2 years now. Originally, as some of you know and were present for, this was a hate board for Everquest's Solusek Ro. That lasted a week =x My bandwidth went apeshit and I had to disable the board, thus Solrorage was born. That's another story though.

So 2 1/2 years down the line, the board has seen game art for EQ, EQ2, COH and Wow with a few other's mixed in. Then we had a migration of sorts from another art board, which will remain nameless and over the past 6 months or so, seen a lot of newer people that were friends of friends come over. So ultimately the board has become more than an eq art board and into a full blown community. I've had old friends come through commenting on how diverse the board is now mixed in with 'who the hell is that?' =D So I figured, why not do a 'who are you' type post?

Who ya be?
Who ya know on TAC?
What brought you here?
Do you know Mae (and did we hate each other at one point? ) ?
What games ya played?
Do you art?
Do you write?
Like to read, if so, what?
Have you Mafia'd? (if no, WHY NOT?)
Do you post regularly?
Do you consider your internet friends as dear as RL friends (or in some cases better friends)?

Consider some of those questions when posting about yourself. Think of a few to ask the next person as well.

I expect EVERYONE to do this. =D

Oh! Well hello, Mae. If we ever hated each other at one point, then I apologize for what must clearly have been an unacceptable transgression on my part.

Questions from Verileah:
What are you listening to –right now-?

the drier going round and round

What was the last book you read?
umm last one I liked well enough to remember the author was by Terry Goodkind it was the one called Chain Reaction I think. The last one of his sword of truth series.

What was the last movie you saw?
Day of Wrath I think is the title. Just watched it. Not a mainstream one.

Tell me a story. Any story, so long as it’s true...
I had my ceiling fall in the day after I got home from spring break. I was supposed to have a home interiors party that night. Had the party just didn't look pretty as I wanted.

Questions from Maeya:
1. Favorite teacher during your school years and why?

Mrs. Wells - third grade and Mrs. Branch - High school english and choir They both made me feel like being interested in learning was not only ok, but wonderful. They helped me feel like things I thought were as worthwhile as what other people thought and that I shouldn't feel the need to hide them inside myself (took a now ex husband to make that lesson go away). And Mrs. Branch would sing even in English class. It was awesome. Our theme song was "I don't wanna grow up cause if I did, I wouldn't be a toys are us kid." hehe

2. Describe your favorite t-shirt.
It is white with a picture of the alamo on it with pastel blue and pink swaths through the image. It says remember the alamo.

3. In a fight between Mr. T and McGuyver - who would win? (if you say Mr. T, you're wrong)
Fight as in fisticuffs or fight as in challenge of the creators extraordinares (Mr. T was BA in the Ateam after all). I think in creations they would work together and blow everyone else away. And then go have a glass of milk. hehe

4. Were you a horrible child or were you pretty tame?
I was the good child till college. Preacher's kids tend to be either really good or really bad, or so they say. I was the good one. lol And then made a few steps over the line after going off to school.

What occupation did you want to be when you grew up?
The story is I couldn't decide between a doctor and a teacher.

Do you still want to be it?
yes. I love teaching and though I love the medical professions, if I lost a patient I don't think emotionally I would deal well with it. I have lost a couple of students over the last 11 years and each time I felt like my heart was being ripped out. So, I think teaching science (still focusing on the subject that draws me so strongly) was the best choice for me.

From Shay:

Mexico... yep I'm boring

A teacher (yeah I'm boring)
