  • Do you have any piercings?
    Ears only.
  • Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
    Righty, but my left hand became stronger when I broke both my elbows at the same time and my right arm was worse.  My left hand had to compensate as it recovered faster.

Nice to meet you. ;)

I still wonder where your parents got "Nova" from. Can you were new?

Those broken bones... Wardrobe too high? ;)

Congrats for getting boobies in there. They're my favourite subject, as you may have gathered, having seen my test forum. :)
Chalky on May 09, 2013, 03:29:04 PM said
LOL I thought you'd be impressed with my mentioning boobies  :laugh:

As for my name, apparently I was born with a swirl of hair on my head that looked like a supernova, and my dad's a bit spacey like that :)

Bones... let's see, left wrist was trying to ice-skate, right wrist was trying to play "catch", left foot was a school netball class, right toe was a fight with my sister  :-X  Elbows were when I fell over at work  :P  Maybe you can see why I don't do sport  :laugh:
kat on May 09, 2013, 03:36:28 PM said
You're a disaster area. Don't get a computer, coz it'll blow up.

Bugger. Too late. ;)

Your dad... Yeah, when I met him, he seemed a bit spaced-out. :)

I still want to know why you left a cold, rainy, bureaucratic, waste of space, island that's governed by idiots for a warm, sunny, island, where...

Oh, wait. I think I can see why... ;)
Arantor on May 09, 2013, 03:37:25 PM said
Britain's not a waste of space, just the folks that run the place are.
Mick. on May 09, 2013, 03:37:37 PM said
When you said 'piggies' I thought you meant 'toes'. Lol
kat on May 09, 2013, 03:39:37 PM said
Our political system's similar to America's. You get a choice between one lot of idiots, or another.

The one advantage that they have, over us, is "None of the above".
Chalky on May 09, 2013, 03:44:16 PM said
'cos they offered me a job here K@ - it's no more complicated than that  ;)  And the political choice is really just between different idiots  :-X

When you said 'piggies' I thought you meant 'toes'. Lol

LOL, I'd never thought of that!  "...cuddling my piggies" makes for a pretty gross image now  :laugh:

My ex could do that, coz she had hyper-mobility syndrome. Oddly enough, my wife has that, too. Such people can get their bodies into some amazing positions...

Nice to see all that :) Ola!

K@ wouldn't dream of posting such things, without consent.

Her SMF T-shirt looks a lot better, on her, than mine does, on me.

Thinking about it, that's not saying much... ;)
ziycon on May 27, 2013, 10:30:25 AM said
