Indeed, but I do not now where Fate has got up to this evening.

You may wash my towels if you like.

As an aside: I will not be linking up any gameplayer's Personal FAQ to their member title until AFTER the game, as sneaking into profiles would give too much away, and I must protect my virgin eyes from certain sights if I want my participation in the Alias Game to remain untainted.

your mom. next question.

errr...

*kicks interviewer inna shins*

ouch! you little snot! *tries to stomp the smurf*

okay. i'll fess up. i'm chronically angry because of all the growth hormones i took as a young smurf. i didn't want to be small, because then i could only ever hope to get with Smurfette... i had my eyes on taller ladies...

*clears throat* err. can we just forget this interview please, i have to go smash things and talk to my therapist.

Fossils huh?

Yeah dead things in rocks, like matt/dave I'm a paleontology freak. I've done postgrad paleontology, evolution and microbiology.

Wait a sec.....microbiology, where did that come from?

Well I'm one of those odd people to double major, did genetics, animal behavour, evolution etc in a biology degree.

So there many jobs out there in paleowhatsit?

Nope which is why I work as a geotechnical engineer, it requires brain function sometimes and pays the bills.

So I see it says you live in London, you really don't sound very limey

I'm one of the many Kiwi's living in london it's handy to have multiple passports!

Kiwi? as in the furry green fruit?

That would be a kiwifruit, kiwi is what New Zealanders call themselves.

Oh cool NZ! so were you in Lord of the Rings?

nope I'm not an actor, I did do a geological mapping exersize around Weathertop though.

so why do you keep arranging your evening in the shift thread?

Well it's cheaper than calling! There is quite a group of us now that live in London and it can be challenging to get ahold of them during work hours.

So you mean you like, hang out with online people for real?

Yeah I've met a surprising number of Boardies in person, and I'm currently living with a boardies brother that got sucked in as a consequence of meeting me.

Ohh gossip! who's brother?

Sillypunk, her brother is Mystery Guest.

So why aren't you around much anymore?

I didn't have internet at two of the last places i've lived over the last few months and I just don't know where my time goes now, too much to organise when I'm not working!

Age/height/eye color?

26/5'10 or 1.75m/blue or blue grey


Great post, you really made me laugh out loud, by the way I'm into fossils too and even write sometimes here

http://www.dinosaurhome.com/

you are invited there to share your knowledge and just talk about your favorite fossils.

fionchadd @ [insert domain name here] . com

what?
*Repeats*

uhh...
shall i spell it for you?

so what does that mean anyway
*sigh* it's a character from a book i read when i was younger. i always liked the sound of it.

how do you pronounce it then?
i'm not really sure. but i like the way it sounds in my head

right... well, tell me more
i read a lot of fantasy. a huge amount in fact. probably something to do with being a quarter welsh and growing up near glastonbury

as in the festival? have you been?
3 times. best place on the planet Big Grin but glastonbury town is awesome as well, and there's a huge amount of mythology attached to it.

so what else do you do besides read?
um, i cook, a lot, and i love it. i scuba dive. i take a lot of photos. i'm trying to learn the guitar. i love music, and gigging. i party hard. it's all good.

Why did you cause the NGB/WGB Singularity?

The truth? I was researching how certain fora operated in order to ascertain if unsolicited group opinions could be gleaned from the unstructured text therein when I noticed the striking, separated-at-birth likeness between the NGB and WGB. Also I was bored. I may have been drinking too.

So is that the kind of thing you do for a living?

What, market research or drinking? When not drinking in the minor leagues (a tragic eyebrow injury kept me out of the majors), I do a very esoteric and very boring type of market research. Ultimately, it usually involves PowerPoint presentations. To keep it interesting, I steganographicly stash pr0n in the graphics to see if anyone notices.

Are you really a lemur?

Depends upon how much peyote you've consumed.

But you must have some special connection to other primates, right?

I know how to handle myself around a monkey.

What's the deal with you and MOM?

MOM is an excellent marksman and utterly fearless around root vegetables.

Can I borrow your Tele?

No.

What about your J-45?

HELL NO.

Can I crash with you in NYC?

Not unless you're young and tender, preferably grass-finished and antibiotic free.

You didn't post here for a very long time; what's up with that and why post now?

I was busy. I still am, but a friend of mine on the board sweet talked me into posting again. Plus at first I didn't fully appreciate how many hot babes tasty morsels test subjects witty and intelligent people post here.

I've heard you're actually Dutch

You heard wrong. Grew up in the very buckle of the Bible Belt with everything but the snakes, and there were rumors about them. The Dutch were just silly enough to give me one of their shiny passports because I endured so many winters there.

Do you even like Neil Gaiman?

I think he has great potential. Also, I've heard he's a snappy dresser.

Why on earth have you named yourself after a monstrous Greek chthonic whose gaze could turn onlookers to stone?

Mmmm.... well, to be perfectly honest, I haven't exactly had the best self esteem in the world, and have certainly felt hideous enough to scare people away.

I'd been using it as a handle online since I first needed one. There was a twisted appeal in embracing a threatening visage in order to ward off all the asshats out there. I just wish I could turn people to stone! I'd have such a collection to decorate my garden...

What, are you some kind of sicko?

Absolutely, positively. Oh the things you can do with medical rubber tubing and clamps!

Rrrrrrright, so... why did you join the board anyway?

If you're looking to blame someone, go find Silverfoot. She found y'all first, then hounded me to read something of Neil's, and finally join the board.

Which book was that?

American Gods. I can still vividly remember the physical act of reading it (which is remarkable with my swiss cheese memory) > it was the height of summer, and I had a most improbable summer job as a Truck Dump Crane operator at a Pulp & Paper Mill up island. Nothing quite like being heavily protected beneath layers of safety gear, in clouds of wood chip dust, while sweating. Reading Neil's work transported me away to another world and I've been hooked ever since.

Looks like you've been a member for six years ...but, where you've been lately?

Yah, I haven't been around much for a few years huh? Maybe a random post here n' there, but otherwise I might as well not even exist.

Mostly I left after a dispute with another member, I thought for good. Having since learnt that I am not totally hated here, it seems safe to return. And most of all, I really missed my lil community. This board really is a special microcosm in a sea of sharp corners.

Are you going to the Seattle WEVA in June?
Y'know, I just found out about it and I'm all intrigued now. On a clear night, I can see Seattle across the water. We'll see how things are closer to the time, but I am going to make an honest effort to go. I was at the San Francisco one years ago and that was amazing!

What's the deal with the "Grand High Empress of British Columbia " title?

Pfft ~ cause I am. Silly question

Is that really a picture of you in your avatar?

Darn tootin'

You're a gamer, so let's have some stats!

(yoink Emerald) Razz For this I blame my husband entirely. He got me into World of Warcraft so I wouldn't be tempted to interrupt his WoW time. He went to *great* lengths to accomplish this.

Here are the results: Nannyogg yes, she's named after the Terry Pratchett witch, only because Granny Weatherwax was too long. Now everyone calls me Nanny

She's my lil Shadow Priestess of DOOM!!!
1137 Shadow Damage at the moment, constantly striving to improve that /flex

She's currently 750 rep away from getting her Netherwing flying dragon mount /squeeee

So yah, if you're ever on the Proudmoore server, Alliance side, send me a tell

YOUR actual Age/height/eye color/hair colour/weight/blood type/sign?, not the virtual you

Finnnnne... 29, 5'8", brown, red/auburn, bootylicious, one of the super common types, Leo & Earth Horse

I like the virtual me better though
I melt faces Big Grin

And yet, knitting? Really?

A lovely quote I heard once "I knit to keep myself from killing" ...that's strangely accurate. Knitting is very soothing. I love it very much, though I kinda suck at it, but my goal is to be able to knit those hella intricate cable-knit sweaters when I'm a lil old lady one day.

Finally, what is your favourite Neil memory?

I've only been to one reading of his, and it was first night of his Anansi Boys tour. It was wonderful: I gave him a black and purple scarf I knitted for him (which he apologized that he'd probably never get the chance to wear it as his daughter loves purple and would undoubtably steal it from him) and then HE KISSED ME ON THE CHEEK!!!

/swoon

It was wonderful

What do you do for fun?
Fantasize.

So, you are a long-time WGB ˜Boardie. What brings you here?

The women are eager, and I wanted to be closer to a source of fairy dust.

What is your favorite month of the year?

October in the northern hemisphere.

You have a reputation as an über Geek or Techie Wizard, is it deserved?

Any competence with sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic to most people.

What are you reading at the moment?

Three books. Beautiful Code: Leading Programmers Explain How They Think by Andy Oram, Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen, and The Best and Brightest by David Halbertam.

Beautiful code, eh? Do you work in high-tech?

When I can. Mostly, I look for enough work to support a dissipated lifestyle of sex with reptiles, fairy dust, and cabaret.

What is the story with ˜Sex with Reptiles', is that a metaphor?

Reptiles think I'm hot.

You post a lot about cooking. How do you know so much about ˜peasant food'?

Promises of a fibrous meal is an easy way to lure women to your flat. Eventually, you have to cook something.

What was the last CD you bought?

"The Merry Sisters of Fate" by Lunasa. The last CD I bought that I liked was "La Vie en Rose: La Môme" by Various Artists.

You seem to know a lot about movies. How did that happen?

Cinemaphilia as a congenital defect.

Finally, how would you describe yourself?

Swarthy, 5'11", 13 stone, and frequently detained at immigration.

Now he does. Red Face Now, I know why the board is listed as a Pr0n site (bottom of page).

However, there is some evidence that pterodactyls may have been warm-blooded, like modern birds.

Why is your name "Lord Groan"?

Because my real surname has royal connections

You mean your surname isn't actually Groan?

Sadly not. Nor is it Windsor (sadly)

But it does relate to royalty?

Yes, in its original Flemish translation.

What is your family crest then?

A golden cup on a blue background.

And your family motto?

Nils illegitimus carborundum

Which means?

Dont let those born out of wedlock get you down.

Born out of Wedlock? so a bast..

Yes, i try not to swear or use course language

Because you are a christian?

Yes, because im a born again Christian.

Isnt that a bit stupid these days? Science has disproved religion hasn't it?

Just like scientists in 1895 were sure that heavier than air flying machines were impossible?

one mistake.

How about when science proved Bumblebees cant fly?

Shut up.

Ok, I've clearly upset you. what would you like to talk about instead?

I dont know. Cheese maybe?

Cheese is good. what is your favourite kind?

Stilton...hey ain't i ment to be asking the questions.

no. don't be silly. eat your Stilton.
