Default Let me introduce myself,,,,

Something Tony said is very true,, we dont know alot about each other here,, but perhaps it would be nice if we all did,, so I thought I would introduce myself to you all

I am Teber,, aka Tebbie,, aka Tebs, aka Piglady, and MOM to Tris and Dani I live in Bournemouth, Dorset, but am all american

I am married to a pretty kewl guy, who I miss terribly right now, as I havn't seen him in two weeks,,

I am a professional make up artist,, having worked in this field for about 17 years in Houston. Currently working my recently deseased parent's 'estate' which is keeping me busy,, if not doing my head in

I love reading, listening to music,, current fav group is Linkin Park,, headbanger music i am learning to love so I can have something in common with my 15 year old
My girls are the center of my universe,, and keep my feet on the ground. Tris is 15, going on 25, Dani is 11, and an amazing example of how an autistic child can be a success in a regular classroom environment , and if I am correct,, has the power to change the world we live in

I love animals, rainy days spend cuddling inside listening to music, camping, kite flying, walking on the beach, and generally enjoying life ,, I want to travel and see as much of the world as I can before the timer goes off

I tend to feel that it's important to understand where people are coming from in order to understand their actions or words,, this isn't an easy thing to do most of the time,, it requires me to keep my mouth shut and listen, which i find to be a challenge

I don't have any particular religious beliefs, except that we are all responsible for our own lives, and that should keep us busy enough

I love candy, chocolate most of all, but as a diabetic, i really have to watch out for that

I love playing on the internet,, but tend to go all "blond" when hubby tries to teach me something new,, but I think it's important to learn new things,, if only because it means alot to him, to see the light flicker in my eyes when I understand something

Ok, enough about me,, comeon,, how about some background on some of you?

if no one responds to this i will feel really silly,, so , come on,, and say something

tebs

oh, almost forgot,,I think I would move into Disney World if I could ,, there,, that should do it

Default me

suppose i have no option but to reply as i am sited as the one who said we do not know much about each other

am 57 , married, 3 kids, 6 and a bump grandkids, they keep me sane and younger, the kids just keep me poor.

am lucky enough not to need to work, or to earn a wage that is, 'retired' a few years ago and have never worked as hard since.

will tackle most diy jobs, both for myself and others, problem is eveybody thinks i am bored and must want something to do.

real interest in computers is building them, mine never has the side on the case as there is too much hardware passing through it

spend far too much time on the net, but it is interesting, can be profitable, the auction sites can be a goldmine, far too many people looking for bargains, but prepared to pay silly high prices, happy to oblige them!!!

leave the 'religion' to my wife, she is the christian in the family, me i just cannot get my head round it, they say it is simple, far too complicated for me.

thats about it, just 'normal and pretty boring' really [comments not invited]

live in Yorkshire, the rest of you are foreigners!!!!!!!

Seems like a good idea. Me, I live in gloucestershire, haven't lived here all my life though.

I'm a 28 year old man. In answer to the "which way do you lean question", I'd say I don't like to identify myself this way. But perhaps that's because I'm not in the kind of relationship that's totally ideal at the moment, I do have a boyfriend, but he's just been sent to a rehab centre in Cardiff!

Favourite bands are Garbage and Portishead, favourite dj's are Todd Terry and Deep Dish, favourite actor is Leonardo Di Caprio, and favourite actresses are Sarah Michelle Gellar and Clea Duvall.

Pointless fact number 1 - favourite kind of shoe is sheffield stc Cat.

I'd be a liar if I said I'm not sometimes capable of being a bit of a geek! I'm not totally geeky yet but I'm working on that one. But I'd say that I'm generally more interested in people than things.

Pointless fact number 2 - haven't practiced it so much lately, but I'm quietly proud of my ability to make excellent garlic bread, if I say so myself! Garlic butter soaked right through, not drippy or clumpy but just perfect in my opinion.

religion - was brought up christian but not without a buddhist influence, probably due to the fact that my great grandfather lived in india for much of his life unless I'm greatly mistaken.

okay! next

Oh where do I start.

Hi, my name's Katie and I'm an alcoholic.... sorry, wrong forum.

Et encore....

I'm Katie, I'll be 34 years old in a week's time and I'm a cute, sexy redhead!!

In 36 hour's time I'll be moving into a little house in Berkshire with my boyfriend Tankman (Tankie to me). We've been together for nearly eight months and they've been the best of my life so far. I was married at 20 to a policeman, divorced at 27 and then straight into a mentally abusive relationship with a much older man until two years ago. Since then I've been sharing a house with my cousin & her boyfriend and whilst it's been pretty much ok I CANNOT wait to move out, and believe me, it's a long story you don't want to hear.

Tankie is definitely my ideal man, we never argue, we try but we end up laughing, we've so much in common (tanks and planes feature a lot - Tankie works for a charter airline at Gatwick so hi to gillbender whose boyfriend is a ground controller there!), can talk about anything trivial or serious, but more than anything we just love being us and being together.

I work for a computer manufacturer doing application support & development - mainly MS Access databases but we're heading for the realms of Visual Basic now. Coming up for my 15th anniversary with the company, can't seem to leave.

My interests are varied - I love reading history, biographies of European Royal Families - I consider myself an expert on Queen Victoria's family, the murder of the last Tsar of Russia and the Abdication of Edward VIII. I love music, mainly anything from the early 80's (new romantics and all that) plus some slightly more modern stuff as The Mission, The Divine Comedy, James etc. I adore animals, particularly cats and abhor any form of cruelty to animals or children (even though I don't like children and will never have any of my own - hey that's impossible anyway, another long story for one of those dark winter evenings!).

I've no particular political persuasion. I'm somewhat religious but don't talk about it, it's personal to me. I have very very strong views on a lot of things which is why I tend to keep out of "heated" discussion on here - not that I'm ashamed of my views and beliefs but sometimes it's best to keep one's opinions to oneself. Pretty much though I'm a live and let live kind of person - let everyone do their own thing as long as it's legal and they don't harm anyone else.

I'm considered aggressive and stroppy at work but then I have to be. I can be very outspoken at times but at others can be as quiet as a church mouse. I'm still rather shy after having been bullied a lot of school which I don't think I've ever really gotten over but a lot of the time I can put a brave face on otherwise I'd never get anywhere.

Wow - that was therapeutic. Um, may I leave now?

Katie.

Red face Re: Let me introduce myself,,,,

Hi,

I am italian and have been over in England for 2 years now living in London.

I enjoy movies, theatre, clubbing, bars, eating good food and playing football.

I have no children and recently split up with my girl friend after 13 months, she caught me in a awkward position with her sister. (In Italy we are friendly to all the women, I didn't realise it would cause great offence over here)

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Andre

Welcome to The Scream! Andre

Maybe your ex girlfriend would have been just as upset if she had found you in a less awkward postion with her sister

Enjoy your stay

Smile Re: Let me introduce myself,,,,

Hello - as you may guess by my sign on I've two fantastic kids aged 8 and 13 and have been married to my hubby for 14 years - known him for 20 - uppy downy relationship but we plod on!
(Our private joke which goes both ways - If I'd killed him on day one I'd have served my sentence and be free now!!!)
I live on outskirts of Norwich but originally from Yorkshire with Scottish parents.
We have two cats and one jumpy Jack Russell who thinks the youngest cat is his personal toy!!!!
I love reading (mainly crime stuff - any author ideas would be appreciated) and have recently been reading Conn Iggulden who i would seriously recommend to ANYONE. Music wise I love 80's stuff (makes me feel a teenager again!) but listen to almost anything if I like it but cannot abide, jazz, Elvis or C & W (Sorry to any fans!!). Try to keep up with recent stuff to my daughters horror when she finds me singing in the kitchen!!!
Work as a secretary/PA to a farmer and a haulage contractor.
I'm partially addicted to PS2 (sad I Know) and trying to get through Disneys Dinosaur for my son but keep getting eaten by two raptors - is anyone as sad as me that can help me????
This seems a good forum so will sign on again soon - work to do!!!

Tebs, my dear, I've got loads of books on the Romanovs but they're nearly all up at my dad's house in Essex. One day when my better half and I have our own big house, I'm gonna have a whole room dedicated to all my books (hundreds of them) and have them all neatly organised by category.

You know everyone, I think we really really ought to organise a Scream day out sometime in the late summer, nowt fancy just a get together in a pub somewhere in England where those who would need to travel can stay in a cheap B&B or Travelodge or summat. Should we... shouldn't we.... or would it be too scary to see what everyone is really like in real life!!!! But we could all come as someone else, as per the chat the other week, and then try to guess who everyone really is!

Katie.

PS: I'm totally demob happy tonight, had a few drinks, ****ed off my cousin's boyfriend when I was talking loudly on the phone to my little brother, still have more packing to do before moving out on Thursday morning but Tankie's on his way home from Mexico now and I'll get to speak to him around 11am tomorrow - haven't seen him since an hour on Sat morning and I'm a bit lovesick, don't ya know. Must remember Tankie's advice - don't post when ****ed!
