Newbs/Lurkers?

Seems like there are a lot of new and pretty awesome faces 'round these parts, and I want to keep y'all straight. All right, fine. You other old hags can respond, too.

1. Tell me something about yourself that's interesting? This can be anything. Really even if it's something not interesting. Just something.

2. Married, engaged, NEY?

3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting?

4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long?

5. Style of humor?

6. Your number 1 talent. Hidden or knot. (Ha, get it? Knot? Word games)

    1. Tell me something about yourself that's interesting? This can be anything. Really even if it's something not interesting. Just something.

    My great uncle is in the baseball hall of fame and holds the world record for most doubles hit during a World Series.  Pretty random, right?

    2. Married, engaged, NEY?  Married

    3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting?  I don't remember-I've been here a while, but still mostly lurk, probably a few months before I ever posted

    4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long? I usually don't have much to add, or if I find that I have something to add, the thread is old.  But I've been trying to participate more!

    5. Style of humor?  Depends on the day, although I'm always a fan of sarcasm.  I can appreciate almost all kinds of humor though.

    6. Your number 1 talent. Hidden or knot. (Ha, get it? Knot? Word games)  I can make some mean baked goods.  I once had a friend ask me if my sugar cookies were profession, when in fact I made and decorated them myself. I was pleased.

    ETA: 7. Tom Hanks is awesome (as is his son)
  • I'll answer, I've been around sporadically.1. Tell me something about yourself that's interesting? This can be anything. Really even if it's something not interesting. Just something.  I really love Judge Judy and kind of want to grow up to be her (this is the only thing I can think of b/c I'm watching JJ right now).

    2. Married, engaged, NEY?  Engaged

    3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting?  I don't know, I've been lurking for a long time.  That makes me sound creepy.

    4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long?  I kind of came out of the closet last week.  I just don't comment when everyone else has already said what I want to say, which has usually happened by the time I read posts.

    5. Style of humor?  Sarcastic, dry.  Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies ever.

    6. Your number 1 talent. Hidden or knot. (Ha, get it? Knot? Word games)  My fingers are double jointed?  I don't think that's particularly a talent though.

    I lived in Angola for two years.

    2. Married, engaged, NEY?
    Married. 

    3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting?
    I joined back in November but only post here and there.  My stupid job only allows me lunch time to lurk and occasionally post.

    4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long?
    I am totally scared of you people.

    I kid!

    Nah, just sort feel on the fringes. Hard to jump in when you don't know people and see people having a good time.  I am totally the new girl at the back of the gym at the 8th grade dance.

    5. Style of humor?
    I *think* I have one. Sarcasm, mostly.

    6. Your number 1 talent. Hidden or knot. (Ha, get it? Knot? Word games)
    I love, love, love trivia.  I am a huge nerd.

    ETA:I only like the Tom Hanks of "Bosom Buddies" and "Philadelphia."

    Not sure if I really count as a newb/lurker, but I don't post a TON around here, so I'ma answer anyways.

    1. Tell me something about yourself that's interesting? This can be anything. Really even if it's something not interesting. Just something.
    I sound like I'm sick all the time. I have almost no vocal cords left from surgery.

    2. Married, engaged, NEY? Engaged.

    3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting? Uhm, about 4 months. I had a screen name two months before I made this one that I didn't like.

    4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long?

    5. Style of humor? I enjoy clever wittiness, and attempt to emulate that myself.

    6. Your number 1 talent. Hidden or knot. (Ha, get it? Knot? Word games) Uhm. I can make a clover with my tongue. I can also get through a 1000 page novel in a day if I'm not doing anything else.
  • Pass or fail is determined solely by the Tom Hanks question, newbs. Answer carefully.

    1. Tell me something about yourself that's interesting? This can be anything. Really even if it's something not interesting. Just something.  X-Files is one of my TV obsessions. 

    2. Married, engaged, NEY?  Engaged, wedding April 30th.

    3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting?  Couple months.

    4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long?  Came out a few weeks ago.  I have a lull in wedding planning right now, so I ended up going to the community pages as my current form of procrastination and decided that I like it here.

    5. Style of humor?  Sarcastic.  It's completely impossible to offend me....  or if it is, I haven't figured out how yet.

    6. Your number 1 talent. Hidden or knot. (Ha, get it? Knot? Word games)  I'm about as good of a musician as one can be without actually being a professional musician.  (Piano accompanist, vocalist, and percussionist, and I taught piano lessons for quite a few years).

    EDIT:  7.  I enjoyed Tom Hanks back in the 90's, but honestly he's a little old and creepy now.  His acting career did, however, start in Cleveland.  Holla!

    I met FI becuase I was dating one of his really good friends. FI and this guy are no longer friends, and it's because of me.
    2. Married, engaged, NEY?
    10 days and I'll be married.
    3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting?
    Not long. A few weeks, maybe?
    4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long?

    5. Style of humor?
    Dry, potty, hyperbole.

  • 1. Tell me something about yourself that's interesting? This can be anything. Really even if it's something not interesting. Just something.  I feel like my shirt smells like smoke today, but I don't smoke and haven't been around any smokers, and I just washed this shirt last night.

    2. Married, engaged, NEY?  NEY

    3. How long have you/did you lurk before posting?  I lurked about a month before I started posting.  Well, with this SN at least ;)

    4. If you are coming out of the Knot Closet today, why'd ya wait so long?  I didn't want to disappoint my parents.

    5. Style of humor?  I have no sense of humor... I am a robot.  Beep boop bop.

    6. Your number 1 talent. Hidden or knot. (Ha, get it? Knot? Word games)  I can bend my fingers almost all the way back to touch my wrist!  Gross.  Also, I can remember a lot of song lyrics.
