Default I'm not new per se, just rarely around :)

Hey everyone. Surely some of you remember me? I started reading the WOT again but got sidetracked by school and by Brandon Sanderson's novels. They are all quite good but very predictable. In any case I recommend them all. Unfortunately, I lost any insights I had gained while reading, which seemed like a vast quantity at the time. So please forgive my newbish attempts at intelligent conversation.

Oh yes, indeed. Quite so. I love Nynaeve though. She's probably my second favorite non-Rand character (Mat being the first of course).

You say that as if he was the first. There was Zan the other day, and pretty sure there have been other returns, like PM not long ago...though he appears to have become reabsorbed by his bong again...

Hi MiB, I remember you had a very cool signature animation, didn't you?

Welcome back

Cool is a matter of opinion. I myself am never cool but that's just the downside of being on fire. I'd say that in most cases if terez says something is/isn't cool I'd approach the matter with the opposite in mind, but ready to be proven wrong since even her bad taste is sometimes right.

Welcome back MiB.

I have to agree with terez on that one, signature animations are more than annoying.. especially when you're trying to read something above or below it and it constantly keeps drawing your eyes to itself.

To be fair, it may not have been animated- I just remember it was eye catching and got a few compliments.

But yes, animated anything is bad for me here at work. It is hard to pretend I am working with Hobbes dancing on my screen

Oh thanks. It's not my fault I had gaudy sigs and avatars. I was corrupted by those $@!%^@#'s at Dragonmount.

What are you roasting all that stuff on, Flaming Haran? I'm not on fire yet.

Oh and welcome back MIB. Sorry I forgot to say that in my last post. Please have the honours.

You trying to say Twilight is bad, MiB? I mean, come on...obviously since it's such a huge success, it's good stuff, right? Oh, and where are your books?
