Hi all on MOM. I have come to meet and greet some more Anne McCaffrey fans. I have been reading her works since 1980 and my favourites are the Pern series and the Brains.
Some, probably most of you, know me from at least 1 other site but I am not going to give my name there just yet. I figure it will pass the time for anyone bored enough to try and work it out.
Look forward to reading you all around.

Nice to meet you! Interesting that a Rodent should choose a cat as her avatar.

Know thyself, the sages say,
but why a kitten in this way?
An avatar of feline persuasion
needs a tot of explanation
for a RodentLady fair;
truly rodents hide in their lair
while the cat or kitten roams
on the threshold of their home?

Ah... a thought and now I see...
the rub is, know thy enemy!

I was looking for an applause smilie for Ghyle's poem but these will have to do instead.


There is a sensible reason for the avatar and name combo, but I do like that interpretation.
