    Hi,
    I am from Australia, I like Fantasy (which is a moot statement I guess), writing (yet another), Science Fiction, Extremely forms of music (ranging from classical to death metal and back), computers and technology, and I am currently doing two degrees, both under the faculty of science; yes, I am a science nerd.

    A short list of authors/books I like:
    Ursula le Guin
    Patrick Rothfuss
    Brandon Sanderson
    M. John Harrison
    Joe Abercrombie
    Richard Morgan
    The Old Kingdom Chronicles
    The Painted man
    Hyperion Cantos

    Some authors and books I DONT like:
    Eragon
    Twilight series.
    Terry Goodkind
    Tokein (I will openly admit he is an amazing writer, and his books are amazing, I just didn't enjoy reading them one bit. Probably because so many people have copied him I came to them already jaded).
    The Wheel of time.
    George R. R. Martin.

    Hello fellow Aussie! Always a pleasure to meet someone who also likes death metal and doesn't like Twilight. Welcome!

    Welcome, Neurosis. I'll be going to college next year. What degrees are you getting?

    We've had quite an influx of Aussies lately, I'm sure you will feel right at home.

    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    So you like Abercrombie and not Martin? Hmm...
     
  6. Welcome to the space,
    I hate the twilight books. Then again I am a huge Anne Rice fan... I see no reason to chill with the teenyboppers when I can lounge with the big kids.

    Jump in feet first.
    My advice is to remember that "Somtimes you have to pull down your pants and slide on the ice."
    Sorry i'm in a goofy mood. :p

    In answer to the question in the title, I would have to say the sky...

    Anyways, welcome to the Boards.

    Well, thanks. Now I know what I'm going to be doing on the way home from the plant. Maybe I'll wait until after I've turned in my badge...

    Anyway, Welcome Neurosis!

    Oh... I've actually said that phrase before...

    Hello Neurosis, welcome to Mythic Scribes!! It's a great place really, you're going to love it =) I also like different extremes of music, ranging from Leaves' Eyes and Lacrimosa to Avril Lavigne and Groove Coverage...

    Another Aussie - reckon you all knew I was joining up, so you gravitated towards my awesomeness.

    Welcome :)
     

  11. LOL there are times when it is just an utterly appropriate expression.
