First Impressions

I know we've touched on some of this is recent threads but let's go in-depth. Name a few SB knotties who's first impression on you has changed whether for better or for worse.


Mine are all for the better:

Nebb - Oh man. When I first started posting here I remember thinking you were like the mean ringleader of SB. That sounds so stupid. Now I know better. You crack me up and I find myself nodding my head to so many of your posts. And I know that in the event of a zombie invasion, I can go find you.

Cew - Kind of the same thing as Nebb. I just didn't want to piss you off. EVER. Now I know I can piss you off (a little) and smack you in the face with my weiner to shut you up.  : )

Betrothed - I just thought you hated me. Maybe you did. I don't know.  ETA: I should add that I no longer think that because I believe we bonded over the fact that we spray our windshields with fluid to get rid of frost even though it causes more problems.  : )

KatieWhompus/Seshat: You are together because when I forst started posting I kept getting the both of you confused for some reason. Now I know who you are individually so that's a relief.

NOW YOU GO! DO IT!

    Hrm.  I feel so old  like it's been forever since I've had to make first impressions of anyone.  I know they're there, but now I have to think... hard.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: First Impressions : Really? How? I always thought you're one of the nicest posters. I'm not sure if I had any first impressions because when I started posting here, I pretty much know how most people are like because most of them used to post on E.

    Tide: I thought you were some sort of exotic bellydancer or gypsy because of your beautiful wedding eyes sig pic

    Nebb: I was scared of you. I still am. ;)

    AATB: I thought you were practicing writing the damn constitution every time you posted. :)

    Betrothed: I fell in love at first sight and wanted to be as zingy as you.

    Sucrets and GGmae: I was so thrilled when I got called out by you and asked who the hell I was. It was like my name was Kady and the mean girls had asked me to sit down with them. Just Kidding!

    I seriously can't be the only person who never thought Nebb was scary.

    Tide scared the crap out of me too.  Like it really put me off how opinionated and persistent she is.  But now I know she's just really smart and caring.  And she's also a kickass mom and she's a beautiful soul too with a beautiful marriage (haha ;))

    Roxy:  I thought you were married.  I also though you were a blonde. 

    Nebb:  You used to be a lot meaner.  I wish you still were sometimes, lol.  But now I realize what it is like to be on a board with people that you like and have random newbs come in and try to disrupt that.

    Cew:  I always thought you were the most fair on here.  I have never seen you hold a grudge.  I know you dont remember it and that I have said it before, but you were the first on here that was nice to me when i was new.  I thought you were hilarious and didnt get the hate that E had for your humor.

    M&M:  I thought you were a b!tch.  I am glad I was proven wrong because I love you like whoa.

    SS:  I thought you were gorgeous (and still do)

    Nates/LTZ/AATB:  I thought you all were going to be a bunch of annoying newbs with all your posting and novels.  Im glad I was proven wrong.

    Jas:  I thought you were 12.

    Bethrothed:  I thought you hated everybody, particularly me.  Now I see its just that you have a very low tolerance for stupid shiit.  I like that you call it how you see it and generally dont give a shiit if people dont like the truth.

    MSteph:  I thought you were a drama queen who tries to hard to fit in here.  I still think so.

    Beatles:  I thought you were really smart.  I still think that.

    Bec:  I thought you were really artsy.  I used to love when you and Cew would post with each other because you are both sassy.

    Kimheartsscott:  I thought you were a redhead.

    Steph0871:  I thought you were gonna fail as a mod because you were new and all puppies and rainbows.  I was completely wrong on that one.

    Jennylove:  I thought you always took the words right out of my mouth on 90% of the threads you responded in.  I still do and really love that you are back.

    Ricks:  I thought you were older than you are. 

    Katiewhomp:  I thought you were really timid.  I realized that you just dont like the drama.

    Lenore:  I thought you were way too nice to be genuine.  I realized that you are really just that nice.

    Cew completes me, blue. True story. :)

    I also thought you just said "I still do and love that you are black." to Jennylove. I was trying to figure out how to tactfully tell you that Jenny's not black until I read it again. Dur.

    As for you, my first impression was confusion because I didn't read the Boston board or wherever you were having your ass handed to you, and I missed what was wrong with you. Nothing was wrong with you, turns out. You're just stubborn and stick to your guns and I like that in a girl. :)

    <strong>Jas / Sesh - </strong>I used to get the two of you confused all of the time

    <strong>Lenore - </strong>I remember thinking that you were a troll at one point, or maybe just really annoying, although I don't remember why.  I do remember thinking to myself that I admired you for sticking around after what you were put through when you first started posting, and I think you've become a valuable, motherly voice on this board.

    <strong>Bec/Cew - </strong>I used to get the two of you confused too, (way back on P&E).  I think at one point, you both had similar siggy pics, and you both bring the funny.

    <strong>M&M - </strong>I used to think that you were a bitch.  Not because you actually are, but because you're purdy and blonde and my mind thought "cheerleader," which automatically translates to "bitch."  Completely wrong about that one.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!

    I used to confuse Tide and Lpstl all the time. I think they both had pretty eye photos maybe?

    I thought Nebb was much older than she is. Ditto Bethrothed. Mostly because they stick to their guns and seem really secure.

    I also used to confuse Roxy and Shelley. I attribute it to their similiar sense of humor and awesome clothes.

    I still have it in my mind that KD is a biker. I know now that she's not, but the image just won't go away.

    I thought Seshat would cut a biitch if need be. I think I'm right about that. :)

    Hee!

    I'm trying to mix it up and think of someone who I thought positively about but no longer do, but I can't think of anyone on this board. So mine are all for the better too. :)

    <strong>Blue - </strong>From the huge crossboard blowout on AFSB/Boston, I was like, "oh this one's a shit-stirrer!" And I thought you were incredibly stubborn, haha! I suppose some of these things are still true, but not in the negative way that I originally perceived them in. You like to have fun when the opportunity presents itself (ahem, pivko) and you are very passionate about your beliefs.

    <strong>Jas -</strong> I thought you were too serious and must not have much of a sense of humor. ;) Boy was I wrong!

    <strong>Heels - </strong>I thought you were too cool to hang with newbs or new regs, and that we'd have nothing to talk about. Glad that wasn't true after all! :)

    <strong>M&M/SS, Roxy/Shelly -</strong> I kept confusing you with each other, and thought you all were gorgeous!

    Not because you LOOK older. Just because of how you handled yourself. You gave off (and still do) that super smart but cool vibe that usually comes with age. Its rare to see it in younger people without arrogance attached to it.

    I didn't even know what you looked like. The last pic I remember of you was you hiding behind a book!

    Are you older? Why do I have you in my head as a young early twenties something? ?

    I remember that but not her. I also remember everyone getting in their head that I was going to have a cash bar just because I didn't think they were a big deal. I never once in that fight said I was having a cash bar and in fact said multiple times I was not.

    I wanna play.

    I get LTZ and Led Zeppelin confused, I think because they both have L's and Z's. I can't get past this and it's driving me nuts.

    I was and still am a little afraid of B.

    I thought Ricks was snotty, and now I have absolutely no idea how I came to that judgment. She is like the sweetest thing ever.

    I thought Beatles, M&M, Jas, Cew, and Sucrets were always slow to anger and that it was so nice that they actually attempted to give people a chance before they decided they were BSC.  And then when they did make that ultimate decision, I loved watching them turn the bitch switch. (Actually I'm not sure I've seen Sucrets or Beatles do this.)

    I've always thought Any was awesome.  Her first comment in the May11 Mod's post the other day literally cracked me up.

    I thought SarahSmiles was a batshit crazy neocon who hated Democrats.  Now I know she's actually only that way by night, when she patrols the night skies as CAPTAIN CRAZY!  (Srsly though, then I found out she's not nearly as neocon crazy as I thought and is actually pretty cool and I still kind of want to make her a cape with a big "CC" on it because it would be a SUPER AWESUM SS gift.)

    Tide scared the crapjesus out of me.  I won't front.  Both her and East.

    Awwww, Nebb and Beatles!  Kiss

    Tide:  same as Bec, thought you were like a belly dancer bride or something.  I still love that sig pic.

    AATB:  I thought you were going to be annoying because of your SN. And that stupid song would get stuck in my head.

    MIAF:  I didn't notice  you a whole lot until I heard that Johnny Cash song on the radio, and then I decided that if your sn was a Johnny Cash reference, you pretty much have to be a badass.  

    Lenore:  I thought you were going to be the new BGB.  Don't worry; you're not!

    Missy:  I thought you were only a couple years older than me.  When you said you went to Davidson, I assumed you meant, like, in 2003.  Tongue out

    Bec:  I thought you were hilarious and that the national boards would love you.  I was right. 

    Ricks:  I thought you were totally hardcore and way too cool for me.  You probably are, but you are nice to me anyway!

    Blue:  I imagined you talking with a thick Jersey accent. 

    SarahPLiz:  I thought you were going to be BSC and princessy like most of Chit Chat.

    Jas:  I thought you were wishy-washy and a people-pleaser.  Now I lurve you.
