How do you do?

Postby Casaninbetween » Thu Sep 11, 2008 3:38 pm

I was going to greet you all with "A jolly good evening", but changed my mind since I don't wan't people reading this at night, morning or noon to feel ungreeted.

The lovely thing about anonymity is that one can put one's foot in one's mouth and still walk the streets and look everybody in the eye the day after. Therefore I won't give you my real name. I will give you an avatar with my real face on it, albeit in such shrunk and high-contrast a version that I feel the risk of pariah-hood nigh undreadable.

I am from Sweden, and have read most of Mr. Pratchett's novels, either in English, Swedish or both. I like them enough to become a member on an Internet forum dedicated to him and write a long, dull post in an introduce-yourself thread, which by my standards of tokens of admiration comes one step short of marriage proposal.

I am a 25-year-old, unemployed, uneducated male who lives in his parent's house. When I manage to find some time off from not working, I like to read, draw, talk to the chickens, lift metal objects and count calories.

In other words, I'm no-one important.

Nice to meet you all.

Oh, this was supposed to be a reply in the "Welcome and introduce yourself" thread. I must have clicked the wrong box.

That's OK, I would have just come back to this post at the correct time to make myself feel better. :lol:

Hi Casaninbetween and welcome - whatever time it is! :lol:

It really doesn't matter if you have posted here on on the other thread, we can all say hello anyway. :wink:

Thank you all!

Oh no... I don't have any problems with mine. :) Other than the fact that they follow me around wherever I go. And defecate everywhere. And wake me up in the morning, crying out their desperate need to get out of the chicken run and into the garden to turn the flowerbeds inside and out. Come to think of it, I have quite a few problems with my chickens. But no, I'm not Methodia Rascal. I don't even know who that is. A Discworld character I've missed, perhaps? :oops:

Go Sweden!

For all you non-Swedes out there, I'd like to point out that Mr. Pratchett is very popular in this country.

Oh, I may be a bit paranoid, but I'm not dangerous. At least not to people - the pink and yellow pixies, on the other hand, sometimes get a run for their money when I feel like taking out any frustration on anyone. Other than that, I'm harmless. And so am I.

:D I am sure you are as sane as the next man.

Unfortunately, the next man is me.

I should've known that - I read Thud last year! Thank's for refreshing my memory.

An other similarity between me and Mr. Rascal is that I've done a fair bit of drawing and painting myself. I'm fairly sure, however, that my chickens are real. If not, I'm afraid the eggs I eat for breakfast are far less nutritious than I thought.
