    Hey all

    Postby mielikki » 15 Nov 2008 00:46

    Hello

    Up front - I am a female-type human, late 40's, Canadian (Wetcoaster), thick-skinned, foul-mouthed and sarcastic. :D

    I also seriously know how to behave, never fear..

    I found you folks through a rather circuitous route, but am glad to be here.

    I just picked up my original Dune books - again - and as always, have found myself completely immersed in Herbert's universe. I honestly couldn't tell you how many times I have read the series, but I enjoy them as much each time as I did the first time I picked them up.

    Looking forward to reading and sharing.....

    There should be fresh baklawa to go with the spice coffee tomorrow, just be sure to get here early before the old guy cleans it all out. :D

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    okay, is that your idea of a sign ? cause if you don't want me have any of the baklawa, just say so. I mean, I can leave some for the
    new girl, you now. I'm not a glutton. I may live in a barn now, but I wasn't raised one. sheesh.

    and anyway, your baklawa's not that good. It's not like you spend hours and hours making it from scratch anyway. I know damn well you pick
    it up at Hassan's Om Nom Nom Nom on your way to work. And it's usually day-old baklawa, so ...... :roll:

    I was in the mood to Google all things Dune.

    I first ended up on someone's blog, which then led me to a couple of Facebook groups.
    One of the wall postings mentioned this place.... in such a manner that piqued my interest, so I cruised over.

    I checked out a couple of "official" looking boards, but I was much more impressed with the content of this place.

    Less flash; less inane drivel.

    oooohhh, don't underestimate our capacity for inane drivel ...

    and less flash is important because most of these people are on
    dial-up in their mother's basement .... or in a heavily fortified
    compound out in the desert ....

    That's good to know, thanks.

    Just so you know, I do plan on making a custom theme. If you have talent in that area you're welcome to give it a try.

    I am a Mom, and I provide a great basement.
    I hang out with my kids there frequently. Because, yeah, it's my natural habitat.

    And Freakzilla, maybe I should clarify a bit more.... some of the other sites appear to be a huge fanwank regarding the new series.

    That wasn't what I was after.

    My kids say so.
    However, it behooves them to say thus, as it keeps the video games and electronics coming.
