It has come to my attention that there may, in fact, be lurkers who are visiting but are uncertain of how to join the conversation without getting the NEY treatment (edited out link- against TOS). Meanwhile, a lot of the regs here (what's left of us) have been lamenting how slow the board has gotten compared to the Good Old Days [TM]. So I am throwing up a Lurker Intro post. Come forth and introduce yourselves. If someone feels like creating a list of questions, have at it, but I'm kicking it off freestyle:
I'm Heffalump. I'm 40. [Cries.] I have been on TK for 10+ years, since I was engaged and learned just how BSC my now-late MIL was. My 10th anniversary is coming up this June, and we're talking about where to go. (Suggestions?) Mr. Heff and I have two lovely children, Woozle (a.k.a. Wooz a.k.a. DD), who is 6 and in first grade, and DS, who suffers from second-child syndrome because he doesn't have a cutesy nickname here, just DS. (He is 2 and has curly strawberry blonde hair that strangers go crazy for.) I work in marketing.
My first TK post was on Wedding Woes. I posted about MIL's awful behavior, got my ass handed to me (mostly deservedly), learned a valuable lesson about password protecting one's guestbook (does TK even have a guestbook function anymore?), and stuck around.
