Default Good Morning...

Hi all,

Just wanted to slip in here and introduce myself. I've lurked here and a few other WoT related places for a year or so but only recently got around to actually making an account. I am one of those 19 year old male types raised primarily in Washington state but attending a school in upstate New York.

I was introduced to the series around the age of 10 and it has easily been my favorite set of books ever since with at least one full re-reading annually (More if I get bored or have time). That said I think Mat holds the rank of best character in my mind with Lan not far behind.

I spend most of my free time reading just about whatever I can get my hands on from novels to science journals to cookbooks but my true love has always been the fantasy genre with occasional forays into science fiction.

Much of what little portion of my free time that is not taken up by reading is spent listening to music and cooking.

And that's about the point I ran out of things to say, so yeah, hello.

Edit: I suppose I might as well mention that I just started a re-read three days ago, up to tFoH now.

Thanks for the welcome all.

And Iokepa, I make an amazing tenderloin rub and can pull off a pretty awesome bittersweet chocolate truffle tart, to name a few.

So....why, exactly, is your name a clearing of the throat?

I just finished TFOH in my re-read, but this one is going slow. Very difficult to re-read for me these days. I just got to chapter 1 of LOC and it's like I have that chapter memorized, I've analyzed it so much.

It's a name I picked up years ago somewhere and have just been using ever since primarily out of habit. I suppose I could have gone with one of my more recent screen names such as Yksisarvinen but whatever.

I know what you mean on the difficulty of rereading some parts of the books.

Well, then we could've called you Yks, which would have been more convenient, all things considered.

I suppose that is slightly easier in a text based communication system.

More than most of the world's population has.

Just thought you might have a connection as "yksisarvinen" is unicorn in Finnish.
