    My name is Alex, I live in a very boring part of the Midwest. I was just posting to say that I really appreciate this network. I have def found some useful information here. I'm kind of nervous about posting and perhaps people finding out I'm on here, which belies some conservative hang-ups I inherited from the Asian-catholic side of my family. This place has been a great way to find stuff out without having to ask embarrasing questions. Sorry in advance to DMW for any spelling/grammar errors. Oh, and you rock, Madame Zora. =D

    Hey-o! Welcome! We've all been new at some time or another... But to quote Jerri Blank, "is it so different to be new?".
    I think you'll find you'll get more and more comfortable with each post. This place rules.
    Oh, and you're right, Madame Z does rock the Casbah!

    This might be a good reason NOT to post your pic on here. Just a thought.

    I'm not sure, really. It's more of a general apprehension...the internet seems like a very "small world" sometimes. Putting up my pic is a step towards not being so scared.

    Welcome to the asylum! Always nice to have a fellow mutt on here, it sure is interesting being a mutt in the midwest, isn't it? Well, none of us bite (too hard) so feel free to post to your little heart's content. I was creeped out by the internet when I first got here too, we all know how you feel there.

    Welcome! Greetings!

    If he said 'what do you have to flop onto the table' or 'what do you drag along the floor' it could have meant somethin else :p

    But hi, welcome and have fun :D

    I know what you mean, I was thinking about taking my pic out of the avatar and maybe not coming on here when I go to uni. Although I spose it'll be a good way to get girls interested if they see me on this site lol.

    Okay, what else can I say about myself?

    I'm an assistant researcher at my university, helping a professor research oral histories in the area. Luckily, I don't have to work and do college at the same time (thanx to giving/controlling parents and some grants and scholarships). I'm super interested in ways that people communicate.

    I don't date really at all; I've had one gf in college, but that was pretty much it. I've lost a lot of weight since my first year, and I'm feeling more comfortable with my body and with talking to women in general, so, that's good. I'm not a wallflower; I can be the center of attention in a lot of situations. It's just that I don't relate to a lot of people romantically.

    I dunno what else to talk about...oh yeah! I hate popped collars sooo much. Don't mean to offend any collar-poppers, but they just really annoy me. It's gotten to the point where I will un-pop mannequin polo collars in department stores.

    Now, don't you feel guilty, DMW? :glare:

    Wait, don't answer that.

    Welcome, Alex! I hope you become a frequent contributor! Don't sweat the spelling/grammar stuff. We can all benefit from your presence.

    Welcome!!! Post a lot. Yeah it helps to proof your work and see if it makes sense. Sure correct your errors, BUT this site is about supporting each other, not about perfect grammer and spelling. I do try, but.... Just post and have a good time and RELAX!!!
