Default Hi

I posted already in the Gathering Storm forum, but I thought I'd make a post here and introduce myself.

If I were more awake, I'd post in haiku form. That used to be a gag I used when posting on internet forums.

Anyway, about me. I'm 24, live in Minnesota, and work for a pretty well known medical institution. I graduated from college with two degrees in political science and mathematics, and I'm using the one I got out of prudence and not the one I was more interested in at the time. Funny how things work out.

I've been reading the WoT series since I was 14, so ten years. I have to admit I've only skim-read books 8 and 9. I only have a functional grasp of the books on an individual character level basis, but I have a pretty good handle on big picture stuff. I'm hoping to buff up my knowledge of the more intricate things, but I kind of hate getting bogged down in mundane details. So, we'll see what happens. I'm not terribly confrontational (yay Minnesota nice!), and a lot of what I have to say are just ideas I've had or thought about. I don't have many defensible ideas at this point, but maybe I will try to focus on that as well.

The most interesting thing about me is that I'm colorblind, but that's not the whole story. When I was 14 (wow, weird how that works out), I told a girl I met that I was colorblind in a pathetic attempt to make her think I was cool or unique or something. It worked, and we actually ended up going on a few dates and became really close friends. The thing was, at the time I told her, I wasn't colorblind. I have a rare version of red-green colorblindness which is acquired over time, not present at birth. So if any of you post in colors, please know that you're forcing me to highlight the text and copy/paste it to a Word document. And that's annoying.

That's all the personal stuff I can think of. I'm an interesting person, I think, and I hope I can stick around and enjoy the community.

We only have one person here that posts in colors, and he apparently only continues to do it because he doesn't care whether or not you read his posts. So, no worries!

Welcome to Theoryland.

Purple Dragon. However, he unfortunately doesn't post nearly as much as he should so you don't have to worry about that all that much.

Welcome to the forums. Do tell us about yerself.
(All questions are optional)
What is your favorite character? Book? Color? Number? Food? Flavor of Gum? Genre of music?
What book had just released when you started reading? (I could figure this out from the info you gave, but I'm too lazy for that )
Are you going to get an avatar and sig?
What is the story behind your name? Rearrangement of the leftmost keys on the home row?
Add any other things that you feel like adding
Also, feel free to ask questions about us folks yourself. (Most of us will be happy to answer)
The insanity wards are down the hall, first door to the right. Come join us in there, it's a fun time. <insert evil emote here>

My husband is slightly color blind. However, according to the government, there's no such thing as slight.

Welcome to the boards! Uh.. we're gonna need something to call you that's not quite as odd. FD?

Considering the fact that he Foretold his own color blindness, we could call him Nicola.

Which brings up the question: are there any Asha'man with the Foretelling?

Book? Atlas Shrugged. Oh, you mean WoT? Either Great Hunt or Fires of Heaven.

Color? Ha. Blue!

Number? 2. It's the only even prime number.

Genre of music? I'm a music junkie, so this is always hard for me. I'll go with the generic "metal" genre, although that's kind of a vague answer.


What book had just released when you started reading? (I could figure this out from the info you gave, but I'm too lazy for that )

Um, I remember Crown of Swords was in the library in hard cover when I first heard of the books. I don't know if PoD was out at that point or not. I just remember that Eye of the World was never available to be checked out, and after waiting for a while to get it at the library I just bought it at the local bookstore.

I just checked Wikipedia for release dates, and it turns out that Winter's Heart had just been released. Weird.


Are you going to get an avatar and sig?

Yeah, sure. I'll get around to it eventually.

What is the story behind your name? Rearrangement of the leftmost keys on the home row?

Not really sure on this one. I remember I had to make up a name once and I hit the keyboard out of frustration. What I got was fdsaf, so I've kept it since then. It's lame, I know, but I'm a creature of habit. Plus it makes logging on to all the different forums and communities I'm a part of easier.
I answered in bold. I don't have any questions yet, but I'm sure once I poke around a bit more I'll come up with some.

I object to a great many things too.

Is two a prime number? I thought it was always viewed as a special case. I've always been partial to 1.618 myself.

Me Taer...me not know what prime number mean. Taer like 9. Me not like haiku either. Make Taer head hurt more than prime number do.

Political science...Atlas Shrugged...I bet T is having a fit right now!

Welcome to our house...have a beer and a smoke if that's your thing.

Dun be shy, and dun think that they have to be WoT oriented.

So you like FoH as well? Sweet. (It's my second favorite, The Gathering Storm is my top)

Zan, yes two is a prime number. Def of Prime Number is "Anything that's factors are nothing other than one and itself." Two fits that definition.

If you must smoke as Taer suggested, please do so far away from me. (Secondhand smoke gives me a massive headache that on average lasts a good 3 or 4 hrs...and yes, I have timed it. I have had many an opportunity, my step-family smokes like fuckin' chimneys.)
