Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away

Given that many EvC old timers have recently rejoined I thought I would see if anyone was interested in sharing their thoughts on this topic.


(Bit of advice, sonny: Never invite old people to reminisce unless you're prepared to listen to long, rambling and sometimes incoherent memoirs that are only nominally on-topic. We're almost always interested in sharing our thoughts and we're a lot easier to start up than we are to shut up.)

To start, I have no idea what my first post was but that ain't gonna stop me.

I first came to EvC as a result of a Google search - I think it was about a geology question. The first member that I remember seeing was the lovely and talented Nosy Ned. The first member to welcome me was Buzsaw. I told him that I'd probably never agree with him on anything and I believe that prophecy has been fulfilled. I remember my first post-of-the-month nomination like it was yesterday but I have no idea what the post was about. (I'm reasonably sure that the nomination was well-deserved, though.) I was once nominated for a POTM by Moose for a two-word post, "That's fundie," which refered to something that riVeRraT said. (I would also like to point out that I am one of the few members who always takes the time to spell riVeRraT's user name correctly.)

After I rode off into the sunset, I went all the way around the world and finally arrived right back where I started. I was a bit surprised to see that a lot of the topics I had participated in were still open. (I guess it's true what the Buddhists say that nothing happens when I'm not here.) The first post of my second incarnation was a record-breaking one word, "Cleveland." I'm disappointed that it hasn't gotten a POTM nomination.

Edited by ringo, : Fixed a spellllinge mistake. Has anybody noticed how clever my "Reasons for Edit" are?
