Jumping Right In-Intro

Newbie here. Been lurking for a while, but decided to take the plunge. Basic info: I'm 29, law student (don't throw things at me!), SO is 27, works in the liquor/beer business (craft beer). Been together over a year, we don't live together. I wouldn't call us long distance by any means, but we live about an hour away from each other. 45 minutes if my lead foot is working. 

Likes (I came prepared):
-Harry Potter. I mean, how could you not?! Read the series several time and see all the movies on IMAX. I'm a nerd. I'm okay with it. 
-All forms of potatoes, from baked to fried to gratin to sweet.
-All cheese except swiss. If I were on death row my final meal would be a giant plate of mac and cheese. My second favorite way to eat cheese is au natural, with crackers. You almost can't do better than a knife, cheese, and crackers. Townhouse crackers or regular saltines. 
-Mean Girls, but it makes me sad to watch now because Lindsay Lohan is truly talented and seeing her makes me think, "oh, what a waste!" And what the h_ll happened to all those other funny people? I need more Gretchen Weiners in my life!

Dislikes:
-Mushrooms. I can't help it. It's fungus. Blech
-The unstable economy. I graduate in May and am petrified I won't find a job.
-People who treat Facebook like Twitter. I hate you and your constant status updates. And people who update with vague or coy messages. It's just for attention so people will ask, "Hey, what's that about?"
-I think I should add Facebook to this list. 

What might be annoying about me:
-I'm shockingly bad at technology. despite the fact that I participate in a lot of social networking (I blog, tweet, facebook-despite the fact that I hate FB). It might take me a while to get the hang of tickers, PIPs, siggy's and whatnot. 


I'm pretty nice and happy to be here! I posted my intro information on that's top post as well. Can't wait to join in!

    I too love potatos. 

    My favorite cheese is Vermont Cabot Sharp. It's the best.

    I don't twitter. Never will and never have. I hate those people who update all the time too. Right now I have a girl who is posting every single activity she does and how many calories she's burned while doing it. 

    I never got into Harry Potter and I never watched Mean Girls.

    And I'm about to probably get some snark remarks.... I hate Twlight. There I said it. HA HA.

    Welcome!  Glad you came prepared!!  Ever just eaten cheese with bread?  It's amazing!  Try it some time!  You seem very normal.  It will be nice to have you around!  What do you do for fun?

    Hi Jeslyn!

    I love the Vermont Cabot brand of cheeses. Their extra sharp cheddar is honestly the best you can get from a regular grocery store (without having to go to a Whole Foods or a Harry's). 

    I read all the Twilight books and I'll admit to having seen the movies, too, but I will cut* anyone who says they are better than HP. I WILL CUT YOU! I think Bella is one of the worst young protagonists in a long while. Her obsession with Edward is being masked as romance and it's really unhealthy. I'm writing too much about this. I have huge problems with her, though. But I will see the final two movies. I do think the books got better. The second book was the worst, the others are just okay. The movies are horrid, but any excuse for a giant $10 slushie, right?


    *I am actually non-violent. I will not cut you. 

    Also, I should add to my intro: I am wordy.

    ravenray-Cheese on bread is awesome! I like to toast it a bit and maybe add some olive oil, but I can't find fault with plain, soft bread and cheese! 

    Wrkn925-I haven't had a pet since my cat Bandit in high school (RIP, Bandit) but SO has 2 dogs that I love, so I'm in for sharing his furkids! Must test my PIP skills.

    I'm a Vermonter..... I have a big love for Vermont food products. 

    I have a big problem with Twlight in general anyway. So I'm free from being cut ha ha ha ha!

    No worries be as wordy as you like.

    Hi Danie!

    I only have shredded cheese at the house currently and I'm kinda bummed cause I really just want to chow down on it (but shredded just isn't the same!)

    Welcome, please stick around!

    You girls aren't alone I hate mushrooms too. I think the worse thing out there is Black Licorice. Even the smell makes me sick.

    Well I love mushrooms! I make these absolutely delicious treats where I saute homemade <-(for lack of a better term) sausage, onions, garlic, and mushrooms, then I mix in cream cheese, and bake it all inside a puff pastry. YUM. SO will eat them for days...usually I eat enough while making them to make me sick. 

    Welcome! I'm having trouble transitioning from the lurking phase...

    Welcome, I too think Lindsay Lohan is a waste. 

    I love Twilight, never read Harry Potter, and my current dilemma is what type of ravioli to get.  Spinach and Cheese with a light cream sauce or Mushroom ravioli with an jalapeno cream sauce.  I think I am going with the first one since you ruined mushrooms for me for the day.   :)  At least now I don't have to choose.

    AbigailMS-I sometimes see mushrooms dishes that look sooo good, but I can't get over the hump. That puff pastry dish sounds divine! I'll have to try it (you know, without the shrooms). And I really like Erica Jong. I read Fear of Flying for the first time a few months ago. Loved it! That quote in your siggy is great.  

    Honestly, it took me a long time to go from lurking to posting. I was/am nervous, but it seemed kind of quiet tonight and the last few posts that have elicited the uber snark have been obvious BSC posters, so I wasn't too scared about that. 

    Random, but I noticed my profile says I joined in 2000(!!!) and I keep wondering who the h_ll 18 year old me was dating that I decided to join the knot! Haha! Clearly, I haven't been active with my measly 6 posts. I apparently have 11 years of posting to catch up on!

    Yeah TK has been uber lame the past few days.  Last night it was redirecting all of us to Houston.brides.com and was basically shut down.  It was also posting things in future time the other day.  It's quiet because some people are fed up from swearing at the computer last night that they decided to take a break.

    meamolly-Yes, that's Dani Moonstar from X-Men. One day when I was bored I searched out superheroes with the same first name as me. Enter Ms. Moonstar.  And it's even better that X-Men is my favorite comic. 

    Now, I don't really know anything about comics, but I used to watch X-Men cartoons on Saturday mornings and I always thought wolverine was way hotter than Batman or Superman and could do much better than Jean Grey. 

    My nerdiness is just showing through tonight.

    We cannot be friends. The only exception to the "Batman is the hottest EVAR" rule MIGHT be Hal Jordan. But really? A hairy manbeast like Wolverine? Pweh.

    Then again, my allegiance lies with DC Comics.

    I despise twilight so much that I reserve the right not to capitalize it.  True story:  I recently "unfriended" somebody on Facebook for posting a status asking if Harry Potter is "as good" as twilight.

    Panda-I know Wolverine is a hairy, mangy beast, but isn't that one of the reasons why he's hot? Just a little. No? Okay. I accept our differences. 

    It's really great getting to know all of you! I'm off for the night, but I'll be back. Have a great night!

    ETA: Oh, And jillD82, don't let me sway your food choice because of my mushroom hatred! Both sound like great choices, and mushrooms are liked by far more people than they are disliked by. Go with your gut!

    Just got into mushrooms recently... like them sauteed but can't get into the raw ones yet...

    And yes! Twilight is stupid! Yes, Edward is hot, but that's the only positive I see!

    I'm new too. Welcome aboard!

    Danie,
    It seems we will be the greatest of friends and also the worst of enemies...

    I'm also new and I have a very unhealthy relationship with potatoes. Sometimes when I'm at a restaurant, I'll stop eating my entree just so I can fill up on the side of potatoes I'll have inevitably ordered with my meal...and then I'll fnish my boyfriend's, too. I LOVE potatoes. I wish I could marry them and then make a knot page detailing our wedding.

    Which leads me to my next point...I'm also a huge nerd. My parents bought me a kindle for Christmas last year, but I still go to Borders just so I can *smell* books.

    BUT I love mushrooms. They are delicious. I will have to be wary of your posts because of your disturbingly wrong view of these scrumptious fungi...

    P.S. rozANDbenSINCE2001's status: currently eating a hunk of sharp cheddar cheese while typing a post on theknot.com (insert evil laugh here) Laughing

    Ben (over the phone): What are you doing?

    Me: Just eating Nerds and watching "Nightmare on Elm Street."

    Ben: Oh. I didn't know you were a cannibal.

    Not sure how to paste part of someone else's post onto mine yet, but I almost died at this. DIED!  Rozandben, I'm pretty sure our love/hate relationship will be awesome and long lasting! 
    Thanks Paige and everyone else again for the welcome! I logged in pretty late and missed all the troll action, and it appears the knot is acting up, but I'm off to try and catch up!
