Should we post our addresses and a list of our worst fears, too?
I doubt he wants surnames, and I assume he wants you to get your friend's permission first.
And, especially in the case of people who are active on the forum, it's not a huge
deal. Hell, you guys already know a ton about me. My name is Valerie, I'm married, I'm from Louisville, KY but live in CA now, I used to work at Borders, I now work at Jack-in-the-Box, I'm 21, I'm open to either gender (or would be, if I were less married)... These are all things that have been said on the forum already. Not to mention you'll get my last name if you click on my signature, but I'm one of the cases that doesn't really care much about that. (Most people are less willing to give out last names and I won't judge them for it.)
The only thing left is a picture
. Oh, oops. That's from like three years ago, but I figure it's good enough. I might as well say that this is an entry from me.
Um... I'm agnostic, I like to draw (but don't have a ton of time for it these days), I have two jobs (the other is at Dollar Tree; I just take all the glamorous jobs), also work from home a little, and have been described as a workaholic (and yet still find time to get on here and argue about things like Lisa's underwear not being fanservice), my favorite color is purple, my mom almost named me Cheetah, I have five siblings (one older, four younger), um... I... am 5'5"-ish and stay around 100-105 pounds (I guess that's relevant)... My family (we are
from Kentucky) is pretty big on gender roles and I'm pretty resentful of anything that suggests I should be a certain way because I have lady parts (but not to the point of being a strawman), I think I wanna go into either psychology or something gender-studies-related if I end up in college...
A lot of people seem to think I'm a cynical, heartless bitch. I'll let you interpret that for yourself, though.
A lot of people have trouble telling when I'm serious/joking, as my jokes tend to be a little on the mean side, so when I say something genuine
that's mean, it tends to get shaken off.
These tend to be the same people. Which is a little confusing, honestly.
I say "tend" a lot.
Shoot, I could easily make a character out of any of the forum-goers. Alice* is from Canada and is married to Tamar. Alice is bisexual and will correct you if you say she's a lesbian because she feels that bisexuality isn't present enough in society. Alice is not actually named "Alice," but I don't know if her real first name is common knowledge, so I won't go there. She's 20-21, somewhere in there. And we do have a picture of her from her wedding, so we have a basic idea of how she looks. That's pretty much all the information T would need to make a character.
gives the option of emailing him. You know, privately. Not on a public forum. Personal information is an important thing, and I understand that, but he's not asking for our SSNs and bank accounts.*Please don't be upset with me for using you as an example, Alice. You're just one of the most prominent posters here, so it fit what I was saying. If it bothers you, please let me know and I'll remove it.
