An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

Default Rejoice, you all have reason to live again. :)

Hey guys,

With the new book coming out soon, I started lurking a bit to get some insight from people who have kept up with the series better than I have over the last couple of years. I can't tell you how shocked I was to see names I recognized, and that some of you still remembered me. It made me realize a few things I wished I'd said, so I thought I'd resurrect the old screen-name and post again.

1) You guys were awesome to put up with 14 year-old me (or 15 year-old...or 16 year-old). I know I could be a smart-ass who listened to WAY too much talk-radio and didn't know much about the world. You guys were nice while letting me know when I was immature - not to mention just basically being good friends (something that is much easier to realize when you are not a self-absorbed teenager). Having that sort of community was great when I was changing high schools about once a year, and it really meant a lot to me.

2) I'm doing well - I'm alive and happy in grad school in the Bay Area. I've been reading on here enough the last couple of weeks to see that a lot of people I remember are still hanging in there - but if there's any news I missed or updates people want to give, please feel free to reply. It would be nice to have a mini-Theorylander pre-Path of Daggers reunion.

3) Ivhon is still wrong about everything we disagreed about - with the exception of his advice to me about getting out on a dance floor and enjoying myself. That part turned out to be spot on.

Hi there. I have seen a lot of you in the archives, but I think you were long gone by the time I joined. You should stick around; us post-TPOD folks aren't so bad, either.

Welcome back, mentally challenged watery fowl*.

* Note to noobs: that is not at all an original way of describing ID#.

# Using "ID" may be, though. Can't remember having seen that one before. Then again, as Terez noted, it's been a while.

Default Thanks, but...

Youngling is more of a state of mind, and honestly, I am not nearly the WoT aficionado I used to be. I don't even (at the risk of getting myself banned for life from the forums) own a complete set of the books anymore. :/ What can I say - books are heavy and I was moving a lot.

But anyways, I mostly wanted to check up on people - find out if Jennifer was still around, or if Thom had ever shown up again. You know, babies and marriages, etc...

I call fraud.

This post was written by a thoughtful, humble and appreciative person. Therefore by definition cannot be Ducky. I was gonna say that 'Taer is out there making up avatars again....but then he wouldn't know how to write thoughtful, humble and appreciative either. So Im bolloxed.

Now (just to play along) - good to see you back Ducky-san. I see you still cannot wrap your feeble duck-brain around the concept that Im right about everything. Always have been. Only reason I don't post on the WoT boards is that my rightness stifles all conversation and Terez swore that she would jump off a cliff in desperation if I proved her wrong one more time. Glad you paid attention to the dancing though.

What did you do to get sentenced to grad school? And in what?

6 years. Long enough for Sare's point - which had nothing to do with your pathetic sense of self-importance - to be valid.

The only time I remember you showing up on WoT any time resembling recently was when you voted on the Lews Therin poll, in agreement with me, of course (you do have brains, after all). I'm sure you posted a couple of other times that I don't remember, but it must have been a duck-and-run kind of thing.

I changed my mind...

Hi, welcome back! People have already asked the relevant questions, so I'll just stick with welcome back.

Oh, and (sticking to people you knew):

1. Tam has 3, Frenzy has 2, Taer has 3 (but, I think that was the case when you were still here)

2. Ivhon, Hopper, Saucy, Gil and Bryan all got married while you were gone.

3. Ivhon and Saucy are breeding!

Lots more to tell, but I feel that those are the big updates.
