    Post by Lessa on Tue Oct 28, 2008 8:55 pm

    Q) What MMO do you currently have the most interest in playing?

    A)

    Warhammer is the first MMO since WOW to catch my attention - it takes a really solid game to keep me interested.
    Q) Have you read our Code of Conduct and Forum Rules?

    A) Yes
    Q) Are you at least 18 years of age? [yes, no, actual age is optional]

    A) Yep, complete with the right to vote and all that good stuff. (I'm 27)
    Q) Have you read at least one of our example applications? [this is highly recommended]

    A) I did read a few - it's great that you all put a bit of thought into the questions - nongeneric is good, as far as I'm concerned.
    Q) Do you have any relatives or friends currently in the guild, or were you recruited by someone? If so, who?

    A) I'm married to Synsational, and our good friends Ghoulie and Suzume were just invited as well. We've been playing MMOs with them since just after WOW launched.
    Q) Name: [planned in game/forum name]

    A)

    Lessa (I have a horrible habit of naming my characters out of books).
    Q) Gender: [female, male]
    A)

    100% redblooded female.
    Q) What region do you live in? [City and State is fine.]

    A)

    St. Paul, MN - I just keep reminding myself that I would miss the season changes if I lived in Phoenix...
    Q) How did you hear about us: [friend, another member, forum, google, other mmo's, etc]

    A) Synsational has been proselytizing for THC something fierce around our house, it just took me this long to find a minute to fill out an application.
    Q) Are you currently in any other AoC, LOTRO, or Warhammer guilds?

    A)

    No - I like to be in a deliberate guild, and the random people spamming ingame don't do it for me.
    Q) Have you applied to any other guilds?

    A) Nope (see above)
    Q) We like to have fun, how's your sense of humor? Not so good? Good? You're a standup comedian you say?

    A) The list of things I find funny is pretty long, and a little heavy on both offcolor and geek humor, not necessarily at the same time. It takes a lot to actually offend me, and from what I can tell, I don't expect to see too much of what I might find offensive. As for standup comedy...not really my thing, although I get plenty of laughs from watching others.
    Q) What other MMO's have you played if any: [Acquired a few skills from some other games eh? Tell us about them]

    A) WoW was the first MMO that I really got into and I started playing that fairly soon after launch. I've become a way better gamer because of WoW, because let me tell you, I was pretty clueless when I started. Now I think I'm a pretty solid player, and somewhere along the way I definitely drank the MMO koolaid.
    Q) What makes you want to join us over some of the other guilds? [let us know!]

    A) My impression of your guild is that it's a fairly mature group of people who are more interested in having fun than being hardcore and playing 6 hours a night, 7 days a week. I like having a community to game with, but I have a family and a job - it seems like that's the norm, instead of the exception around here.
    Q) Please tell a little about yourself, aside from gaming. Perhaps some hobbies, about your work, favorite story etc.

    A) Um...I like long walks on the beach?
    Really though, I'm a compulsive reader. I have a book almost all the time, including walking down the street (that's left over from using public transportation - I'm going to read when I get to the bus stop, so I might as well read on the way there). I'm not particularly discriminate about what I read, as long as it doesn't have a bright pink cover with a woman half falling out of her dress on the front, but I do lean towards fantasy of the dragons and elves variety, and vintage mystery novels. I reread books all the time, which Synsational will never understand, but most Terry Pratchett novels are just as funny the 3rd time as the first, if not funnier - there's always something new to find, whatever the book.
    Lets see, what else? I'm a teacher in a nursery school, and I currently work with infants, which is a nice counterpoint to the extremely active and talkative two year old we have at home. That said, I take adult time and conversation when I can get it.
    Besides that, I overuse ellipses and dashes, and almost always type with capitalization and grammar - even in texts - it's the latent english major in me, suppressing my inner leetspeak fanboi.
    Please remember to register here on these forums, if you haven't already.

    A)


    Already done.
    Q) Do you have any questions for us?

    A) I tend to jump in with both feet, and ask questions later (and mix metaphors), so no questions at the moment.

    I love punctuation; I mean, I love punctuation (especially parentheses, without which I don't think I'd be able to communicate...at least not in a way that would make sense in my own head).

    Anyway, Thumbs Up from me!

    Your our second Pratchett fan to apply today (and directly mention Pratchett in an app), Do you know Zee? Laughing

    Your app sounds good to me. Thumbs Up


    That said, I take adult time and conversation when I can get
    it.
    Are you looking for that here? If so, define "adult"... rofl

    Our most adult conversation at the moment surrounds the philosophical Cake or Pie debate. So? Cake or Pie?

    I have to say that it depends on the variety of Cake or Pie. If it's blueberry, then pie, if it's chocolate layer cake with raspberry filling and whipped cream then cake. Specific enough?

    I knew someone would catch the 'adult' conversation comment- I meant conversation with people who speak more than a grand total of 3 words...honest.

    Thumbs Up all good.....I personally, enjoy the use of the extended periods for pausal (yes I'm making up my own words now) effect.........I also have a rather "ahem" active, two year-old systematically destroying my house. The love of my life and the bane of my existence all in the same little 26 pound package.


    I too re-read books (and re-watch movies). I've read "The Shining" no less than ten times, and when I'm feeling maudlin I have been known to re-read "Where the Red Fern Grows". I've watched (don't laugh) "Homeward Bound The Incredible Journey" 20 times and I still cry every damn time that stupid dog comes over the hill. But really I am over 12 years old. I just finished The Story of Edgar Sawtell which was great (except the end sucks).

    Anywho....now that I've sufficiently rambled, I liked your app, look forward to chatting. And, having lived in Oregon forever and a day...seasons are overrated. We just like rain. Lots and lots of rain.

    Ah yes, you were refrenced in previous apps. This app is pretty solid, except the correct answer is CakePie, but I suppose I can overlook this pitfall and give you a Thumbs Up !

    Wonderful application Lessa! Praytell, is Lessa the name of the Princess in Krull? sigh its been awhile since i've seen a name like that.

    In any case I cant think of any good pop quizzes considering that you provide child care and have the infinate courage and patience that I feel that many a parent lacks. I have two of my own, a 5yr old boy and a 2yr old daughter....boy are they sponges!

    Come to think of it.....POP QUIZ:

    Who is spongbob's best friend?

    In spongebob the movie, what did his best friend do while Mr Krabs opened the Krusty Krab 2?

    Lessa will be away from a computer until late tonight. Work all day and then we are attending a Halloween Shin-dig for our son at his school this evening. Keep the questions coming I am sure she will attend to them when she can.

    Lessa is the name of a character in the Pern books by Anne McCaffrey - She's the lead queen dragonrider, sortof.

    As for the popquiz, I'm going to fail with 50%. I know Spongebob's best friend is Patrick Star, but I have never seen the movie. We've been trying to shelter our guy from the manicness that is Bikini Bottom, for better or for worse lol.

    Man: The common myth

    Post by Rave on Thu Oct 30, 2008 5:10 pm

    Having been with my "man" for over ten years now, and having watched him pouring over his little army men for countless hours, I have concluded that "men" are really boys with a higher propensity towards maturity. bootyshake

    That being said...let the sign read, "All who enter must pick up their dirty laundry". I'm convinced that'll keep all those smelly boys out. lol!


    But.....without all you wonderful fellas....who would kill the bugs and change the lightbulbs? affraid
