    Or you can call me Rommalb

    *sigh*

    Introductions are so awkward.

    Purposefully talking about oneself out of context is . . . well, what does one say?

    And why? Nothing about me is relevant -- or interesting -- to anyone else out of context, without relating to something.

    So . . .

    Here I am, propped up on my bed, Macbook on my knees, Kharma stretched out beside me, snoring gently with her shoulder gouged into my waist and one ear artfully arranged on a pillow, paws twitching in her dreams (possibly of chasing prowlers), trying to think of something engaging to say. Me, not Kharma.

    Kharma always has something engaging to say.

    Liralen or Rommalb and Kharma,

    Welcome to AW!
    Before going into battle, Vikings would ingest Amanita muscaria. In addition to being moderately poisonous, Amanita muscaria eliminated fear causing them to be feared warriors earning Vikings the nick name berserkers.

    Thanks

    "Wrestling out of parts unknown," hmmm?

    Once upon a time I got dragged, kicking and screaming, into the wrestling world -- doing publicity, costumes, photos -- NOT the ring.
