Greetings.

I'm not new (quite the opposite, in fact), but since I've just recently got back from a three year (how time flies) hiatus, I thought I should officially say hello!
So, is there anyone here still around from 2007, or am I alone in this sea of lovely new avatars?
Looking forward to meeting new peeps, and hopefully settling back into the swing of things.
And to avoid this being too boring, and to help me know a little more about you guys: Tell me a random fact about yourself! Sexy or non-sexy, your choice
Me? I've been growing five different species of chilli this year Piquant food makes my heart sing.

Hi Miss-N,

There are a few people from 2007: Wizzie, Diamonds and Morbida to name a few.

Mmm random fact: I had a iron fall on my head and I dont have a lot of enamel.

Hi Miss-Nomer and welcome back to the forums.

Random fact about me? I played the bagpipes as a child!

Well, I was only active Jan-Nov 2007 (you joined shortly after I left, by the looks of things), and have never been the most chatty of peeps. I missed this place, though.

Spontaneously collapsing kitchens are not boring! That must have been an odd MSN convo from their point of view, haha (assuming you told them).

Owie! The second random fact involving an injury. Hmm, seems the army theme is appropriate what with several of you being in the wars

Ooh, I'm a bit that way. I lists. And I like things lined up nicely, and books/films/etc have to be organised. Even my big chest of toys is organised into categories, with related categories juxtaposed. I mostly just like my food to look pretty, though...although, I do always have to eat a bite of my favourite thing on the plate last -- that way it's the dominant flavour in my mouth afterwards I think most people have their little rituals and systems.

Oh wow, jealous! Motorbikes are trés sexy. Between the house I first shared with my boyfriend, and the town centre, was this motorbike retailer, and every time we passed, he had to drag me away from all the bikes. Been tempted to try getting a license, but think several people in my life would object an awful lot (my uncle lost his best friend whilst they were out riding together).

Thank you for all the welcome backs, everyone

Yes I told him as it happened. I remember him actually saying WTF was that in the background???

Oh here's something really random, I've got my bro and sister in law racking their brains now...

If Peter has 4 thongs, Is wearing one thong, Isn't wearing the other, But is inside the second thong, Making him a lucky man, Has two feet, But only wears one thong, Because the other foot isn't there now... How many thongs does Peter have? Once you find the answer, Divide it by how many feet Peter has....

From a stupid wall to wall convo on fb.

Hey welcome back :)

Random fact?

I have OCD have to do same things everyday before i go to bed lol!!! xx

Welcome back from a newbie!

Random fact -

My first car was called Jeremy :)

Hi Miss-Nomer,

Nice to meet you!

Random fact: I'm really into food, cooking it reading about it, eating it. It's such a big part in our lives that hubby & I planned our wedding round the food.

(I thought everyone saved the best mouthful on their plate until last.)

Hello there Miss-Nomer and re-welcomings! (I made that word up!)

Random-ish fact? . . . .

I once represented England under 15's in Karate! I'm into growing flowers nowadays though!

Have fun!

I always wanted a motorbike when I was young, then I got a scooter at 16 and started on the bikes 3 years ago.

I think motorbike/scooter riding is a good idea before car driving - I think it makes you safer, as a 100 miles an hour feels much faster on a bike than in a car (all that floor moving around so close to your feet!) and you're more susceptable to weather and road surface changes so you learn fast how they can affect your driving. However they are stupidly dangerous - the number of people who've pulled out on me without seeing me and I ride with my lights on and wear a bright pink leather jacket! A tiny mistake on a bike has bigger consequences than in a car!

It's the reason I wear pink - so people know I'm a girl, they automatically give me more space (not that they should, sexist people :P) but I can play that to my safety advantage.

It's not often I'm accused of that

Yes, that does get annoying. Means there's one more way to think about ordering them!

Ah, nightmare. I used to know a girl who had to tap most of her body parts three times each in the mornings. Must be a right bother.

Food is wonderful. I started getting into cooking around three years ago, and now I cook every day. I have no idea how I coped before. It's so rewarding (and tasty). About the only part of my fantasy wedding I have planned is the food!

Hmm, maybe my boyfriend is the weird one then, because he always eats the things he likes best first. I've not paid too much attention to other people, in that regard.

Re-welcomings? I like that.

What a change! That's quite the achievement; I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of you, heh.

I can imagine. I don't drive at all, and have no desire to ever drive a car, but I could definitely see why it would help. Maybe if everyone started off on a motorbike/scooter the roads would be safer for the people still driving them! It seems that, the bigger the vehicle, the less considerate the driver.

Haha, taking advantage of being female is always good, even if it does make you think everyone around is a chauvinist >.<

Hi there Miss-N, I'm pretty new to the forums myself.

Random fact - I can tap-dance. Might start going again one of these days.
