    I'm not sure if this type of thread has been made before, but I'd like to see what the members of MS look like. Most forums have one of these anyway...

    "...well I'm just your average everyday kind of goblin I suppose, yes that's me then..." and with that the goblin thought it wouldn't hurt to add his picture here, adding "...ok, so who's going to post their picture next I wonder..."

    I knew you'd look like that. Well, perhaps not so formal...

    This is Xanados, also known as Void, also known as Taylor.

    On the post interface, find the button that to the left of the "film reel" symbol. It looks like a picture of a tree in a window. Upload it with that.

    Great photo. Traditional garbs, how nice.

    Edit: I hope that isn't somehow offensive. Why would it be?

    Sorry it's so small, but I'm the one on the right. Also, this picture is more or less a lie, since it was taken five years ago. :D There's a more recent one on my profile page.

    You've already seen my manly chest (and wussy hands, but they look like strong hands after PhotoShopping).

    Now put a face to the name. Like previous posters, I'm ALSO the one on the right and am ALSO wearing traditional garb. But UNLIKE them, I'm seated by my soon-to-be-deflowered bride with a background made up entirely of breasts.
    I RULE!

    ...or at least I WOULD rule, if not for the photographer forcing me to make Chun-Li's victory pose.

    Oh look, I managed to find a front shot.

    And yes, that is a sword pendant that hangs about my chest.
    Long hair and sword pendant = ancestral warrior?

    My post had the word "breasts" in it, so I was more offensive than both you and Xan put together.

    And yes, she is lovely. Thanks, Lotus. I believe you and I are both fortunate to have found our special someones halfway around the globe!

    Sometimes you find exactly what you need in the weirdest places. Someday you will have to tell us your "How we met" story. Siva and I met online. ( Online dating site ) He lived not far from me but, after having had several really bad dates I decided not to reply to his email seeking to "know more" about me, after a week I read the email, and decided he had to be gay... The language was very "ladylike"

    Long story short, he emailed me again this time stating that I had not replied to his sisters mail so he thought he would try the direct route... ROFL.

    We met twice had exactly two dates then ran off and got married. Wow that seems soooo long ago (4.5yrs). His sister died three weeks after the wedding, I think maybe somehow she knew and decided to find someone to watch over him. So now spill what is your great love story??

    Hey Trist, I love your blog. Always a joy to read, and you're a fellow Michigander (with really nice eyes I might add!) which just makes me smile even more...
    :D

    Wonderful story, Lotus!
    It's long, so don't say I didn't warn you even though I didn't warn you.


    November 2004: I wanted to quit my job because I found out that, though I was the top performer on my team, I was getting paid $5K less than a new hire. I was bribed to stay four more months with a $4K bonus + travel to Europe and Asia.

    December 2004: I was developing a close friendship with a Chinese coworker (not my wife), so I was glad to still work there. I considered dating her, even though we had great differences in our personal beliefs. Basically, I'm Catholic; she's not religious. And so what, I figured.

    December 27, 2004: At a friend's house (his b-day), I was speaking highly of this woman, and thought I might take her out as my date for New Year's Eve. My friend's father said, "big mistake" even though I hadn't told him of the differences between this woman and I. It was the first time this man had ever given me advice. I didn't question him... his words really had an impact on me.

    January 2005: My friend's dad died, so I never got to tell him that I took his advice.

    (So, like you, Lotus, someone who was about to die had a great impact on the meeting of my spouse!)

    But like I said, I took his advice before knowing it was the last thing he'd ever say to me. I realized that this woman and I had so many differences in our upbringing, and that would cause some friction if we were to later have our own kids. Sure, religious and political differences have no bearing when it comes to making friends, but for a 32-year-old man looking for a wife, I needed to aim for a common ground.

    I had given up on a Catholic dating site, but decided to give it another shot, and take it slow. I emailed a local girl and she didn't respond. I gave her time.

    Meanwhile, back at work, Germany was confirmed as my Europe trip for February. For March, I would go to Asia. Not the Japan office, the one in Hong Kong.

    At home, while looking on the dating site to see if I got a reply, I asked myself, "Is Hong Kong a country or city or what?" I remembered in Street Fighter II, Hong Kong had a flag. I used the "country selection" option on the dating site. Hong Kong was selectable. "So, it IS a country," I thought.

    I hit enter. Accidentally.

    One person came up in my search: Sandra.

    I wrote an email, "I'm not trying to date someone on the other side of the world, but I'm going to Hong Kong in two months and..." I asked Sandra stuff about Hong Kong. She replied. We emailed every day for a week. We talked on the phone every day after that. (The American girl did finally reply to me, but I politely told her I had met someone.)

    February 2005: When I was in Germany, Sandra happened to be in Italy. We both racked up expensive phone bills that week. Despite the obvious distraction--or maybe because of it--I was a real hit in Germany. The trip was more successful than anticipated... yet when I came back to the US, my boss told me my trip to Asia was cancelled! (I won't get into the office politics.)

    March 2005: I stayed until March 6th, only to fulfill my end of the agreement on my contract. When my boss asked what I would do without a job lined up, I told her, "You don't need to worry about me anymore." I was blunt at the exit interview, but the HR lady enjoyed my candor. I had nothing to be bitter about. If not for the company treating me like dirt, I never would've met my wife. And that $4,000 bonus... half of that funded my trip to Hong Kong.

    I flew there March 11th and had an awkward first date. Sandra had never dated before, so I took advantage: "First dates are ALWAYS awkward," I told her over the phone that night.

    The second date was not awkward. (Understatement!) I knew that morning that Sandra would be my wife.

    April 2005: I moved to Hong Kong.

    July 13, 2005: I proposed.

    October 14, 2006: We took that photo.

    "...the easiest way to post one's own picture is to use a picture host like photobucket then..." replied the goblin, adding "...however, if you want to add some picture that one finds on the internet to one's post, the simply righthand-click the picture itself, choose properties, and within the properties find its http address aka the source of image or imagesource, then copy the http address to one's post, whereupon one adds a little code using square brackets [​IMG] directly after the http address, and presto it's done..", and with that the goblin posted an example using normal brackets instead of square ones
