Default Hello, my name is Subwoofer, I am a WoTaholic

Sooos- I figure this is where I stand on my chair and do the big intro... or am I in the wrong room? Isn't this hairball collectors anonymous?

Right then. Normally I post on TOR (yes, I am that annoying guy), but Terez keeps on referring to this magical wonderful place where unicorns frolic, so I figured that was her subliminal way of wanting to inflict me on all those here.

I tried to get on here months ago with some instruction from Terez, but in a clear cut case of equipment/software smarter than user, I was stymied by the log in process. Apparently there is a log in for forums and for theories. Who knew? Only took me eons to get tell the doorman about the bear in a tutu.

Now it is just a question of how to find the treads I want to comment on.

Then look out, I'll be goin' hard.

Oh yeah, I've been following the books since the early 90's- thought it was a trilogy at the time. Boy was I wrong.

And for all that is holy and good, "Youngling"? Really? I'd rather be called anything else...

Start with "little ponies".

Progress to "colts".

Then "horsies"

Maybe "Stallions" or "Mandarb"

Dunno how many other stages there are but final epic stage could be "Bela".

-Just sayin'.

Uh-oh, you stepped into the noob board. Before you know it you'll be setting people on fire and hanging out in the chat room and you'll have forgotten about WoT altogether.

Also, some oldtimers would definitely object to 'Bela' being the highest ranking.

Just sayin'.

Heh. Nope, like Indiana Jones, I took my handle from my dog. Her name is Tina, but I always referred to her as a "subwoofer" because she is not nearly as big as a full sized "woofer". As I was blogging, she would either sit at my feet or on my lap and every once and a bit her paw would come out like she wanted to type something, so I added a "woof" at the end of each of my posts to represent her opinion too. It just stuck with me.

Sorry- was going from the "Bela is the Creator" perspective... guessing the oldtimers are in the "Bela is a darkfriend" camp.

And I said I can live with the "noob" title, at my age, I am happy with anything that makes me sound young... except Younglings- the guilt by association with Gawyn is almost unbearable.

While we are on the topic... is setting people on fire a bad thing? Just wanna know...

Actually, we have an oldtimer named Bela. Actually, his name is Belazamon, but everyone calls him Bela.

See? You might as well kiss your WoTaholism goodbye. There is a chat room and marshmallows in your near future.

I was wondering how long it would take Bela to show up in this thread.

Thanks for the warm welcome folks Good to be here!

Fair warning tho'. Am know to rant, go off topic, forget what topic I was on to begin with, and have a reputation for D&Ping.

And I kinda feel cheated. I have yet to see a single unicorn frolic anywheres here.

Bela seems to scare them off, for some reason.

@yks 6nnetu hing-Woooooot!

Way cool!

Now if somebody could just tell a certain moderator on another site to get me the promised TOR dingle ball(inside joke- there was a huge honkin' thread and I was the last post until Torie-moderator- came along and snagged it from me, then I asked for a dingle ball for compensation -no dice) as Christmas is just around the corner...

Somehow I see Bela as being pro-unicorn. Edit- well you know what they say about unicorns that have big horns...

What's strange is that all the fire and stuff people are conspicuously absent. I think Naz is still reading the book. Maybe he had to wait to get it for some reason; he's in Finland.
