Welcome aboard anyway :D :wave: :cheers:

He was on the NKT for a SHORT period of time, and was often mistaken for someone else. But he's been Old Wolf for YEARS.....looks more like a bear, acts like a wolf, can't go out during hunting seasons unless in blaze orange.

Welcome Ruptered/Erika!

I wish you and Multi-Facets luck with the new pbem club -- nice to see a non-Pern one now and then. :)

I remember once being on a PERN forum somewhere... not sure if it was this one or not!

Anyway, real name is Miguel, but most folks on forums call me Ozzie because I live Down Under. Long time PERN fan, have even written some PERN-dedicated twiddles and put some of the teaching ballads to music (and then I discovered the CD, which I was mostly impressed with!)

A bit about myself: I'm a veterinarian working in Western Australia south of Perth. Besides my work which demands most of my time, I also write music and engage in some fiction writing, practice Tai Chi, go for the occasional SCUBA dive (being an ex-marine scientist) and spend an awful lot of free time helping people out with behavioural problems with their pets (which is what I'm specialising in my veterinary training. Arthritis at the age of 29 does not help my practice as a surgeon.)

Anyway, looking forward to meeting folks here and following the development of the Dragonrider's movie!

Cheers!

Ozzie

PS. My avatar? My dog, Gabby, faithful companion and filcher of wasabe-roasted green peas.

Why should I pout, and why should I weep,
she's from the land of the long white sheep,
so "Kia ora!" Ms Erika,
rupture that cowboy in my new car!

Hey Ozziebloke, Miguel, g'day,
I glad you stopped by, truth to tell:
I'd like to know if my shoes smell
(well, really not, I had to rhyme).

Oh :mad: ....

Thankyou for a novel greeting,

Well, I almost made it ;)

Welcome to MoM, Ozzie!

This forum has only been around for just shy of two years; perhaps you were a member on Anne's own forum, back when she had one. A lot of us around here were.

Pleased to meet y'all. Ozzie, be prepared for a lot of peeps asking advice about pets! Most of us have them, I think. And if you like making silly rhymes, please jog over to the Word of the Day thread over in Games. (I'm still waiting for Ghyle to show up there, too!)

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Buenos Nochas, Mein Froinds!

As a newcomer here, I thought I'd just let you all know a bit about me.

My real name is Jim and I'm 39 years old (same as Pern:eek: ). I'm maried to Jess (also an AM fan) and we have two children: James (nearly 6) and Mary (4).

I really love reading and, aside from AM, I'm particularly into HP Lovecraft, Tolkien, JK Rowling, Philip K Dick, Terry Pratchett, David and Leigh Eddings, Michael Moorcock, as well thoroughly enjoying biographies and auto-biographies.

Music wise, I like most styles of music but tend to lean toward 70s rock (blame that on my age). In particular I like Rush, Queen, Pink Floyd, Genesis (Gabriel era), Marillion (Fish era), Kinks, Small Faces and The Sweet. I also play Bass and a bit of guitar and enjoy song writing.

In addition, I also write short stories, drink real ale, eat curry and enjoy painting.

Hans Oct 8 2006 09:26 AM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Welcome to the board Jim (get your wife to register too! :))

I think you share your likes of authors and reading matter with a lot of the members of this board. Your music taste shows your age somewhat :) but you don't hear me complain as most of what you mentioned would be in my list, too.

Enjoy!

Lady Maelin Oct 8 2006 03:45 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Welcome Ghost Rider, I hope that you find us an entertaining and enjoyable group to come in and chat with.

I agree with Hans, you should have your wife come in and join us too. I am sure she also would enjoy it.

Cheryl Oct 8 2006 06:22 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Welcome Ghost Jim! How many of us need to nag about your wife joining for her to come too? :D

ghyle Oct 9 2006 02:58 AM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
G'day Jim! :wave:

Did I hear that magic name? Lovecraft, not Peter Gabriel. Although I woundn't be surprised if Peter Gabriel was a spawn of Cthulhu.

Have you tried Clark Ashton Smith yet?

edith Oct 9 2006 05:28 AM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Hi Ghostrider- just noticed that you've posted a chunk of "The Prophet's song" on your post on Eddings!
That's my Mum's favourite Queen song, and one of mine too for that matter!
(I was brought up on stuff like Queen!)
Welcome!

Emma-Jayde Oct 9 2006 05:49 AM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Hi Jim!
I like your taste in music too. :grin: Most of the stuff I listen to is 70's-80's rock :cool:
Which, I think, goes to show I was definately born in the wrong generation. :roll:

carkel54 Oct 9 2006 03:13 PM

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!
 
Welcome Jim,

I like your choice of music- it is about my era. I really liked
Motown sound a lot and now I kind of like the new stuff that
comes out. Definitely not the screamers!!

Welcome and glad to see new people!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canucks!!

Hans Oct 19 2006 01:32 PM

Hi there, new member MJH and welcome!

Did they use that teaching material with The Smallest Dragonboy in it in your school? (I've always wanted to ask a US teacher that :))

Kugai Oct 20 2006 02:30 AM

Welcome aboard Jim :wave:

You'll find there's life here, but not as you know it. :D

Hey there all. About time I stumbled into here and signed up, I guess. Been in Pern fandom for a while now. Was known as Brightwing or alettath on the KT, am a member of North Ranges Weyr and founder of Southern Boll Weyr, member of BPOI... so how did I miss this? Heh.

You can run, but you cannot hide? ;)

I'm from Aotearoa, too. The Kiwis are invading, methinks.

I have a vague memory of the names Brightwing and Alettath on the old KT. Glad you stumbled on to us here! Welcome Brightwing! :)
