Not actually new.. just rude?

Post by Geekophile on Tue Nov 30, 2010 10:32 pm

Yeah, I've been lurking for a while now but haven't posted a formal introduction yet. Is that considered rude in "forum land?" I didn't mean to be. It's just that every time I log on here I am overwhelmed by the vastness of your collected knowledge and get easily sidetracked reading all the threads! Anyway, nice to meet you all; you'll be seeing me pop up all over the place now!~

I think a lot of us started out lurking about before introducing ourselves. I know I did.

Thanks for the welcome. Finally, a group of women (lets face it, it's mostly chicks on here) that are NOT catty foghorns, And where no one rolls their eyes when I talk about face paint (or Battlestar Galactica for that matter!)-- Hold on, is this Heaven?

I ventured over to a bounce house forum yesterday to get some info for my church (considering purchasing one) and oh my goodness... I couldn't believe how snippy, sarcastic and jealously guarded the regulars were there. They would help no one unless they found out where you were from to determine if you might be in competition with them, and they totally flamed one guy out because his prices were set lower than others in the area. I don't know a lot about the bounce house industry, but I imagine they have the same concerns over competition and such as we do, but the atmosphere was so completely different.

Makes me feel very blessed to be in a group like this, where we aren't so worried about ourselves that we would resort to that behavior. I love this forum of friendly people. Smile

Oh no. Maybe I'm the catty one, because when I read "bounce house forum" I totally sniggered! What could there possibly be to chat about with bounce houses? I'm off to investigate!

hello and welcome! Trouble with BSG tho is if you don't want to spoil things for folks who have not (and want to see it), one cannot speak about things like who's their favourite cylon Razz

Hahaaa!!

(They talked a lot about which inflatables sold best for them, etc. And they griped a lot about how newbies kept saturating the market in Michigan. LOL... )

Welcome! Love the Seminole on your avatar cheek! Although, must say I'm a Gator myself. There's a story there about my conception, but I think that would be a case of TMI. LOL! See you are in Pensacola - have a cousin there that runs a parasail business I believe if they are still in it. Am so jealous of those getting to live by the beach...sigh.

Thanks for the compliment! I really don't like a lot of paint on my face, so I only ever do cheek art on myself. This was for an NFL school contest thingy, so it's actually a Redskin logo that you're seeing-- no need to start a Gator/Noles rivalry!
Pensacola is a great town for a lot of reasons, but the beach did not list among them this summer. I feel bad for your cousin for having a buisness directly effected by the waters of the Gulf. Hope they made it through with their shirt!

LOL - guess I'm not a very good sports fan if I didn't recognize that as a redskin logo! I haven't heard how their business fared so I have my fingers crossed for them. Did you actually get a lot of stuff wash up then? Or was it the threat that kept the tourists away? I know Destin had a little but for the majority of the time was able to keep it relatively clean.

Hey, I guess we are pretty close. Cool. Do you agree that I-10 between Pensacola and Jacksonville is the most boring stretch of road ever? Not a thing but pine trees.
About the beach, I must say that the clean-up crews managed to keep it looking clean. They never closed our beaches, but that doesn't mean I'd swim there. We wound up spending most of our time on the river this summer.
