Title: What do you all look like??
Post by: Angeleyes on February 26, 2006, 07:43:36 AM
Hi everyone. I'm back in the coffee shop. Should be doing something else, but this bloomin' computer keeps calling to me.

Anyway, while I sit here with my tea, I was wondering what it would be like to actually see what everyone looks like. It would be great to put a face to a name!
I know what Suzie looks like because I've seen her blog. So is anyone else out there brave enough to put their picture on the site? 8)

Hi Joel,
Wow what a stunner - Im 57 years old and if you play your cards right you can have me!!!!  Well I might make a nice Mum/Auntie for you!!   Ha ha.

All jokes aside it really is nice to put a face to a name and glad you could share this with us.

Perhaps this is one for Nick to sort out!? By the way, I ain't' got a clue how to use it!! :D

Well, I tried using the photo facility and got the same answer so Ill put up a notice for the other Moderators and the Administrator and see what we come up with as others have managed to do this but I dont think this facility is available to us yet.   Ill ask for you.

Joel and Jenny. I should start charging!!heheh. And Joel love the 'Desperately Unpublished', can't think of anything better...yet! ;)

What have I started?? :D
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Nick on February 28, 2006, 04:17:08 AM
A few people have been asking about adding photos or other images to their postings, so here's one of me, to show that it can be done:

(http://www.nickdaws.co.uk/images/nick04.jpg)
At present anyway, you can't simply upload pictures to the message board. But if you have an image hosted elsewhere - say on your own web page - you can put it on the forum by enclosing the image URL within img tags. These can be accessed using the second icon from the left in the second row.

So if you have an image hosted at www-mywebsite-com/image.jpg, just put this URL within img tags in your message and it should display without difficulty.

Hope that helps!

Nick

I was in a museum at the weekend, a small boy looked at me for a while, then said, 'you look like Father Christmas'. (I confess there is much grey in my beard these days.) I replied, 'I am Father Christmas'. His mouth and eyes opened wide, then he ran away.
Enough said.

Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Jayel on March 03, 2006, 01:37:19 PM
Hi Sherry - LOL - I wish I were so cute!

Sugar gliders rule my nights! I have eight of them; they have their own room complete with climbing ropes, folliage and burlap ceiling to facilitate racing about upside down.  I was a moderator at GliderCentral for years before my writing schedule got in the way, even my author website links to them. Aren't they the most enchanting beings on the planet?

In each of my novels a "downy flier" (aka sugar glider) plays a companion role to one of the main characters. Even my chapter header art for the Ancient Mirrors series is a sugar glider. ;D  http://ancientmirrors.com/images/phelan_chapterheader.JPG  They have been a real hit at several book signings.

My oldest is 8 years and youngest (twins boys born at my house) are 8 months out of pouch.

Oh I just love the SG's.   They are wonderful.   I didnt know you could keep them as pets.   Ive only ever seen them in the wild years ago.

They are wonderful.   Being a wildlife person and conservationist I think your photos are great.

Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Jayel on March 03, 2006, 02:48:12 PM
Thanks Lin. Something we have in common - I am also a licensed wild life rehabilitator (I deal mostly with raptors).  I do have to clarify that suggies aren't pets in the dictionary.com sense of the word - the are demanding companions and require nocturnal human companions, a great deal of attention and affection, special diets, and exotic vets if they are to be happy and healthy. They are illegal in many places and I have had to make emergency treks into California (an illegal neighboring state) to pull gliders out of homes before they were confiscated and euthanised by government agencies. Living with exotics requires a great deal of committment and research. All but three of those living with me are rescues.

Cheers,

Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: sjreed56 on March 03, 2006, 10:39:27 PM
Awe… they are adorable. They have a whole room?  Lucky little things.  Mine only get to come out of their cage for periods of time. Their cage is fairly big though.  I wanted some suggies for years and just got a pair of sisters last fall.  They are great company while I’m by myself, at my desk at night.  When I need a break I swing around and open their cage and they come out to play. When they think they have been ignored long enough they bark at me. I just love them.
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: jmack on March 04, 2006, 07:56:36 AM
I'm quite shocked! Here I am, a supposed Aussie, and I had no idea Sugar Gliders could be used as pets. To be honest, they must come to you from Indonesia rather than Australia. As far as I know, it's illegal to keep them here. In fact, I believe they're a protected species. Which I imagine would mean they couldn't be exported.

Could be wrong though.

Very beautiful little beings regardless. And you're right dave, while it's an illusion, it does look like he's wearing wellingtons (or gumboots as they are known down here).

P.S. Jenny, I doubt you can't remember the last fellow who bought you flowers. I'd guess they are thrown at you by the adoring crowds.

Post by: Jayel on March 04, 2006, 08:28:27 PM
Joel, the sugar gliders who share our homes have been bred in captivity in the U.S. for over 15 years. They are the smaller sub-species, petaurus breviceps, originally from Indonesia.

Hi Jayel,

I used to rehabilitate Auks back to the sea after they had been covered in oil.   Many of them died.
In my book First and Last Outpost I highlight those issues in the hope that what I write will influence someone on holiday reading my book to go out and do something for nature

If we all filled a kettle half full for our needs and switched off the TV at night and caught a train instead of driving we would all being doing so much for the environment.

In my book which in parts is set in the future the newspaper headline reads - LAST WILD ORANGUTAN DIES.  If we dont all act now for nature that headline will become true in 2045!

Visitors to Daman are welcome all year round. Daman is written as 'Damao' in Portuguese which means, 'give me your hand' - a handshake/welcome. But its time to gin now as summer has  set in and its hot! Coffee & rum is great at Christmas time but you can try my Biscuit cake posted in this forum (Coffee Shop) - all you need is love and some chocolate and a spoonful of sugar - and don't forget to dip the biscuits in rum!

Oh well. I added a pic to my profile. The picture is from a trip we took to Durango Colorado back in November.

No the second head isn't Quatto, it's my son Michael. He's in a Baby Bjorn. You may not be able to tell from the tiny thumb nail picture, but at the time he was 6 mos. old and weighed 22lbs (Aie Carumba!)

Good morning gub2000,

If you click on the icon - 2nd row down and 2nd from the left (the one that looks like Van Gogh´s Field of wheat with cypresses), you will get 2 `img´ fields in square brackets.

In between these bracket insert the FULL URL of your photo (the photo must already be on the web for this to work).....voila!

Best of luck

I probably would never have posted my picture in the forum if this thread hadn't been here.  I have spent most of my life self conscious about my weight. So here I am.

Although a large lady, i am attractive in the true sense of the word, in that everyone who sees me smiles at me, then comes over to talk to me if possible. So I attract people, even though by most cultural guidelines I'm not a beauty.  But attractive is nice to be- and i seem to attract really nice people- which is a surprise and a delight to me.

Of course, I went through that whole overweight stigma for years and hated my looks- until I finally learned to be content with being attractive.

I really do like most of the people I meet, and they like me, so that works.  being large is just one of those things.  And I do enjoy seeing everyone's pictures when I read the posts.  It makes it seem friendlier here and more welcoming.

I hope other self conscious people will be encouraged to post their pictures.

Orchid,

I, too, am a larger lady, and finally after years of self-loathing, I am happy with myself. I won't ever be thin - so what? I'm me, take it or leave it  ;D

Let's hear it for larger ladies *clap* *clap*

Aelf:

I can remember Rolf Harris very well, I am 37 this year. I used to watch him paint those lovely pictures and from that I trained to be a graphic designer at college.

Definitely a resemblance to Rolfie!!heheh.

orchid15, I love your piccie. I used to get bullied at school, and it is something I can't really talk about, even now. Every time I think about it I get a knot in my stomach. I am hoping as I get older, I won't care about it, but as yet, it's still a big problem for me! :-[ Some people can be very nasty, while the majority are very nice!!

Oh,mary. It took me ages to figure it out too. I'm not sure how to tell you how to do it. So unfortunately, will have to leave that up to someone else.

Ok, anyone able to tell mary how to do this??

Am I the only one that can see Rolf Harris in this picture?   :o

Suzie xx

It'll take a lot to convince me that that ISN'T Rolf Harris! I'm still a big fan - used to love those big paintings he did on TV. I bought all his CDs again last year - they were a small compromise in the car - the kids love him and it's definitely a step better than endless nursery rhymes!!! So now we have a classical CD, then Rolfie, then more classics, then Rolfie - works well on the long journeys!  ;D

Amazing likeness, Aelf - you could win competitions with that photo!!!

p.s. Mary - sorry, can't help! I had to put a piccie in my profile as I wasn't able to simply put an image into a normal posting!

Mornin´Mary,

In order to post a phot within the main body of text you need to have a phot already on the web...somewhere.

Do You have your required picture already on the web?

If yes...click on the icon - 2nd row down and 2nd from the left (the one that looks like Van Gogh´s Field of wheat with cypresses), you will get 2 `img´ fields in square brackets.

In between these bracket insert the FULL URL (http://www.yoursite.com/your_photo.jpg) of your photo. . .voila!

If you just want to place your photo on your profile:

1. Click
Quote
Profile

2. Click
Quote
Forum Profile information
- on the left
3. Tick the radio button
Quote
I will upload my own picture:
4. Click to search your hard drive for the required photo, not sure what your button will say, mine´s in Spanish!
search through your hard drive until you find the phot and. . .voila
5. Lastly, click
Quote
Change profile
- at the bottom

Good luck

Tam

I don't see your picture yet, so decided to send you upload instructions.

If the picture is on your PC, it has to be in Jpeg or GIF format.  I have Microsoft Picture it on my computer and it saves to its own format, which won't transfer to the web.  So look at the file name and see if the letters gif or jpeg are after the period.  If not, you need =to open the picture and resave it using that format.

Once your file is in the right format, you need to go to the right page on my writers Circle to load it.  Press the profile button at the top.  6hen press personal profile information.

To put a photo on from your PC, tic the box that says "I will upload my own picture.  Then press the browse button.  That opens a window that lets you access any file on your PC.  Find your picture and choose it.  then press enter.  It should upload.

If your picture is on the web, you have to know its URL address.  If you open a separate window and go to your picture, then the writing in the address bar is your URL address.

feel free to contact me if you need more help- just use personal message and I will get back to you.

HI Raevan,

So it looks like we're in good company no matter what our bev prefs are. So All you'all, have a cuppa your favorite an me. Waiter, we'll all have a round.  ;D mary

Raevan,
This is deanerbeaner aka Dean. Despite the possibility that I may be ridiculed by the forum, I have to ask: what's Earl Gray (I know it's a drink, but what kind of a drink is it)?
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: raevan on March 30, 2006, 11:26:08 PM
It's tea... Twinings make the only drinkable version, in my opinion. It's got bergamot in it to flavour it.

And here's how I look after a few swigs of a concoction made by mixing Chivas Regal, chilled Pepsi and lemon juice! Its a Portuguese-style backyard barbecue - the meat comes from 'piglings' and a special salad is made by baking a few brinjals by burying them in the earth and make a fire over them! The hot pulp is mixed with sugar-cane vinegar, chopped onions and green chillies:)

Post by: jmack on March 31, 2006, 09:49:26 AM
Okay okay . . . I've been silently watching this thread for quite some time now.  But now, I have to add my two cents. Earl Grey is horrible stuff. It makes me think of drinking gin, or in fact, drinking a bottle of perfume. Ugh!! Definitely not my cup of tea -- literally. I can't remember who said it, but surprisingly, Tetleys, to this day is one of the best teas around. Especially "All Rounders". Throw two of them in a cup and let it soak for a good few minutes, and voilah! you'll have a strong brew worthy of the Gods.

Not sure whether they stock Dilmah over there in the UK. It's run by a Sri Lankan family here in Australia, but I believe they import as well. Probably the best tea there is. It isn't mixed junk like Twinings. it comes from one source -- pure Ceylon tea! Trust me, it's definitely worth trying.

(Obviously, I've read the brochure in the box!! And I also worked in marketing once as well. LOL)

OK tea lovers, You'll love to hear of the Republic of Teas. It is the best quality found here in the states. You have a glorious choice of pure picks or blends. For those who avoid the flowery teas stay away from Jasmine or any of the White teas. Save them all for me. The blacks are also most worthy. Try some?  mary

I don't like Earl Grey either..its the perfumed taste /aroma of the Bergamot oil!
When I lived in London an Indian friend of mine made me tea 'Indian style'...this she did by infusing tea leaves (Indian of course)..in a saucepan of milk. Then added sugar to taste, and then poured the liquid through tea strainer into cups. I found it to be rather  good :)

Hi all.
Loved all your photos.  Nice to put faces to the names whether real names or made up ones.  Sorry but don't have any photos on the PC yet but as soon as I learn how to do it I maybe coaxed into putting a little one on.
So what do I really look like well, I was out with my two very attractive, thin daughters today and the bus driver drove us all to where we were going even though it was off his route and said, "I don't mind going out of my way for three beautiful young girls".  I knew he was really saying this to impress my daughters but it was nice to receive a compliment from a man again.
I am small in height, have a huge personality, child bearing hips, greeneyes, of course, and quite long brown hair (although it comes from a bottle these days but only once a year).  I used to describe myself as warm, round and cuddly.  I too love to drink tea but very weak tea and it has to be the cheap one from Asda (thats a supermarket here in Scotland).  My mum says I should just drink boiled water cause she says it definitely is not tea, more like gnats p**s.
I have enjoyed reading this very long thread indeed and I am glad that I had my cuppa to hand.
There was one point in this thread when I thought I was on the wrong website as it was beginning to sound like a dating agency but that would be a very good idea but drat that has been done before.
Some of you are very handsome and beautiful and not what I had imagined at all.  Not that I thought you were all nerds, or ugly or anything like that.  Ooops I better stop there before I write something stupid!!

Does that make me a nerd or just someone who does not mix well in company?  I live in a house but though it funny you live "on" your computer.  the rent must be cheap and you don't need any furniture. lol lol

(I put mine into 'my documents') Then go to your profile (the button at the top, next to logout) When there, click on 'forum profile information' this takes you to your details. Then click on the 'browse' button and go to 'your documents', find where you have put your picture, click on it and voila! Phew! Hope this makes sense.

Hi Angeleyes,

I can relate to that. A smile costs nothing and in fact, laughter can be a very important therapy. There are even some Laughter Clinics around that can help you to discover the funnier side. One word of caution though, not everyone is able to smile. My condition, Myasthenia Gravis, is connected to weak muscles and some people I know can't smile because their facial muscles are too weak. If you want to know more have a look at my website. I've also got an extract from an article I wrote on 'Laughter Therapy'. So I guess if you don't get a smile straight away have a look at their eyes, like yours I'm sure they will be smiling!
Title: Re: What do you all look like??

Nice website Scarlet, thanks! ;D
This thing on smiling ?....People who have suffered strokes, don't always get the use of the facial muscles  back again(my uncle had this)..

and a few years back, after our return from living in Portugal, I was out one night and the left side of my face felt 'funny'..and I couldn't move my mouth properly...overnight it worsened and I couldn't close my eye,which was watering very badly..
went to doctors and he told me I had Bell's facial palsy. By then side of my face was frozen. I couldn't eat or drink or speak properly let alone smile!
It did wear off after a month, but at the time I looked as though Id suffered a stroke.
My daughter's young schoolfriedn had the same thing and it lasted almost a year. Some people never get the use of the facial muscles back..I was lucky! Mind you, my eye took a long time to get better.
But a smile goes a long way I think? I know it makes me feel good!...and I always make a point of smiling at folk in wheelchairs, as I often think they get overlooked in our busy way of life ;D

I don't know if you noticed on my links page I've put a link to a website which is all about laughter therapy. It's author is a trainee Mental Health Nurse and he developed it as part of his course. Have a look under Self-Development when you've a spare 5 minutes  it's a giggle ;D

Thanks again, I haven't stopped singing all day - one way to get my partner out mowing the lawn!

Ok Angeleyes,
My problem IS putting a picture on this page. ::)

Finally found one and saved it in 'my docs' can follow your instructions up until Browse - where do I click then to upload? ???

Oh well, someone did ask!!    Same pic as my thumbnail, same woman, different day!  It's great we can all get an idea of who's who, though, don't you think?  I belong to other forums where this isn't done, and I've always wished I could 'see' who I was talking to.  Not that it makes a lot of difference to the content of conversation, of course, but nice, just the same.

Hi Cathy. Ok, when you click on 'browse' a box should appear called 'Choose File'. Look for 'My Documents'and click on it. Find the file name with your photo and double click on it. That should do it. (I think!!) I'm pretty new to all this too...so I hope I got that right. ::)

Hi Cathy

Sorry you're having a problem there with this.  It's such a useful and quick way to get pics up on the screen, too, when you get the hang of it.  Hope you sort it out and we'll eventually see you!

By the way, everyone, how do I start a new topic off?  Not sure how, sorry.

I'd like to ask my question, anyway.

I've got a new laptop, two weeks old.  Bought the Norton Antivirus for it, all good till last night.  I went on the web and tried to get onto a radio station, in the States somewhere, and lo and behold, up popped the Norton, 'Virus trying to enter, etc'  ....  Anyway, it did it's stuff, so I thought, I scanned the laptop again, and it said, no errors.  But do you think I can get rid of the damned pop-up which started it all?...No way!  It's called WinFixer, the virus, and it keeps asking can it fix or scan my files.

I'm at a loss how to get rid of this as I've done the scan.  Should I just do a re-scan?  Why do these viruses keep fixed on the screen?  I've pushed it as far over to the RHS of my screen as poss, now only about a cm or two is showing, but the thing is still there.

Any ideas, everyone?

Thanks

Bubbles.

Hi Everyone...

Cathy, did you manage to sort it out?  Scarlet....hope it helps.....by the way, saw you are based in Wales, whereabouts?  ...Lovely day here, sunny and quite warm.  Should I do the garden, or keep my nose glued to the writing....ah, it's always the way, isn't it, distractions?  Perhaps I should just close the curtains and put on a cd with 'rain' sounds on it?

Post by: Sandy on April 28, 2006, 06:20:34 AM
Hi Bubbles,

I live on the borders of the wild West of Wales, in Carmarthenshire. Bandit country so I'm told. It's a small rural village with a temple and an elephant - I kid you not! The sun is shining (for a change) and as for your dilemma, I'm going to do both. I'll do some writing, then I'll have a break and do some gardening. Then I'll go back and carry on writing.

Have fun in the sun :D

Hi Bubbles and Scarlet,

I live in Wales too, the Cynon valley in south Wales. I'm English, originally from Coventry, but I've lived in Wales for over fourteen years now and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

I believe that Suzie, one of the site moderators, is about to join us here in Wales. Maybe we should consider starting a Welsh writers collective  ;D

Hi Foxy and Scarlet, again......Scarlet, my brother in law lives in Aberporth, is that near you?  Lovely beaches down there, some of the best in the world, in my opinion.  And Foxy, nice to meet you, and a good idea too, about us forming a 'Welsh' group, perhaps we'd even get to meet up, sometime?

I live in Cowbridge, about 12 miles to the west of Cardiff.  It's a nice place, and convenient for the city plus M4 and airport, but still countryfied.

OK, must get on, but will check in as the day goes by.  I love this, being able to chat to others and not feel as if I'm alone with my words.

Bubbles.

Post by: Sandy on April 28, 2006, 12:36:36 PM
Schwmai Foxy and Bubbles,

What a great idea to meet up. I'm a bit isolated out here. Think Aberporth is out Cardigan way, so about an hour away but I'll check. I'm about 7 miles outside Carmarthen. I've got a good friend living in Cowbridge Bubbles, I know it well. Often been shopping there and had meals in Farthings. I'm English too but you wouldn't think it when Wales are playing England at rugby. I've been here 30 years now and love it all, especially the rugby.

Iechyd Dda!
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Foxy on April 28, 2006, 01:32:55 PM
Schwmai Scarlet,

I can't believe you support Wales over England in the rugby! Duw duw, gul, it's twp in the 'ead you are...just kidding  ;D

I love the rugby too, but I support England, and it's great fun being in a pub and wearing an England shirt when Wales are playing England in the six nations.

Post by: Sandy on April 28, 2006, 05:47:53 PM
Twp I may be but I've just got too many rugby connections. I used to help my ex-husband run the Scarlets lottery in the 80's and got to know a lot of the players and it sort of went on from there. My daughter who was born here is disgusted with me as well. Having said that she's  bringing her new fella to lunch on Sunday - a former Welsh prop, all 18 stone of him! But you're right there's nothing like the hwyl of a Wales v England game to get the blood pumping. Can't wait to see what Gareth Jenkins does with the team now.

Hi Scarlet,
Just read your blog and loved the free dictionary "match the word" bit of it.  It was interesting to read a bit more about you and what you have achieved so far.  Of course, I knew that anything beginning with "myo" was to do with muscle.  I'm just completing my Higher Human Biology course at evening college.
I have also just completed one of those Community Courses in "Healthy Lifestyle" which you may have helped to write.
I don't know if I could ever write my own "Blog" knowing that others could read it but then that is the whole idea isn't it?

Hi Greeneyes,

Thank you very much for your kind words about my blog and website. I have worked hard on it but I love every minute of it. I don't reveal everything in the blog. In fact, you may be right it could get me in trouble! I talked about my daughter's new man, who we met today and said he was an ex-Welsh rugby player all 18 stone of him. Thing is I talked about my website today and he was interested and has taken the url. I forgot he would see the blog - doh! Oh! well he's a lovely chap, I'm sure he will understand ;D

By the way given the name of this post 'What do you look like?'. I expect you have green eyes, but that's all we know. Don't be shy, where's your photo?

Post by: Bubbles on May 01, 2006, 07:20:15 AM
Hey Scarlett and Foxy et al......This is a great thread, almost as if we're have a gossip over a cuppa.  I love it.  Well, to just point out....I'm really, truly to the core Welsh.  Born in Resolven, way up in the Neath Valley.  I've spent my whole life as an expat child and wife though, so although I've always kept a home here in Wales, somewhere, I do feel a bit of an Allsorts.....I love the Far East and spent eight happy years there until about 8 years ago, since then it's been KL, Malaysia, Africa and at present hubbs lives in Bahrain, so I go back and fore there regularly....(Never seen Michael Jackson down the souk, dressed as an Arab lady though....as he's said to do)....

Yes, go to Farthings Scarlett, it's still going strong, though Nick, the young man who co-owned it with his wife Natalie, died last year.  Very sad, brain tumour, he was just 32.  She's been so strong, still running it and two other businesses here in the town.

I'd love to meet up with anyone nearish......

Right, must go do lunch now....May already, can you believe it?
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Foxy on May 01, 2006, 08:01:21 AM
Hello Bubbles,

I live in Hirwaun, so I know Resolven well, and the market there. The Neath Valley offers some pretty spectacular scenery that always makes a journey to Swansea an enjoyable experience. I've never been to Cowbridge, but I might visit just to see what Farthings is like.
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Sandy on May 01, 2006, 08:08:14 AM
Hi Bubbles,

I know Resolven as well! I used to live in Crynant and then moved on to Neath. Then I went to Pembrey and then back to Neath. I hope I've finally settled here in Carmarthen with my new partner. I've been here five years now and it's lovely. Very sorry to hear about the guy in 'Farthings', must have been a terrible shock to her. I agree it would be great to meet up somewhere, someday, somehow....
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Bubbles on May 01, 2006, 08:42:15 AM
Hi Scarlett and Foxy....well, it's a small world for sure.  I used to live in Glynneath in youth and we owned a house in Cadoxton, near Neath for many years.  I also went to school near there, so know it so very well.  And another co-incidence, when I read the last post of yours I thought, 'I know, I'll look for a pic of Resolven, and paste it here' and in the search on Google, up came pics taken by someone on another forum in NZ, and they're all about that area.  I'll post link below.  But those canals and lakes were our stomping grounds on those long ago hot August school hols.  Ah, Enid Blyton days, where did they all go?  lol.  Bubbs.

I don't have a decent photo of myself and I do not know how to put one on this list.  Yes I am shy a bit.  Yes I have very green eyes.  I like a bit of mystery though.  I have long brown hair but wear it up in a clasp or ponytail, I don't really like it down as I feel I am too old for that style.  I am not fat but not thin either.  I am not tall but not medium height either.  I wear glasses now.  I used to have a lovely figure when I was younger but I think I passed it on to my daughters as they are only size 10.  They are taller than me too which would not be very hard.
What else would you like to know about me.

Haven't worked out how to put a photo up - but hey, that would be scary!  I use old pictures of me taken under coloured lights!  I quite like the anonymity of not having faces - one can dream, one can imagine, one can project.  And you can imagine anything you like about me likewise.  But ... www.guido.rincon.dial.pipex.com .... well, nuff said.

Actually - I do like looking at pictures of people - faces tell so many stories.  People's faces are always intriguing how ever they look.

Hi CarolAnnS

Be pleased that you weren't addressed as 'A dog faced soldier'

One of my heroines is horsey faced but that doesn't mean she is not sweet natured.

Ooohhh CarolAnnS, what a great photo. ;D Your pony is gorgeous, what's his name?

Right, who can I pick on now.....who still hasn't put their photo on here???hehe. :D ;D

Post by: CarolAnnS on May 08, 2006, 06:41:10 AM
Well, thanks, Angeleyes.  My pony's name is Stormy.  He's a sweet little thing, but gets jealous of my attention with the other barnyard animals and gets a little "stormy" when he's not the center of attention!  :)

Hmmm, about the photos . . . although Kat has her picture posted (well, half of it anyhow), I'd love to see what the rest of her looks like!

hi Scarlet.
It is a welsh name, yes, but the closest connection I have to Wales is that my sister went hiking there the other week :)
I'm actually a 4th generation Australian on one side and a scot on the other!
That photo was actually taken in Amsterdam, a friend and I went cycling for a day, got lost and I ended up with a very sore bum. That's what sitting on a bike for 4 hours will do to you!

Angeleyes,
You'd think with all the advances in technology that by now somebody would have invented a more comfortable variation of a bicycle seat! I envy you your bike because, despite the discomfort, it is so much fun. I start a new job next monday and am looking into buying a bike when I've saved up enough. Hopefully (for you) it gets less painful the more you ride :)
This is the best close up photo of me I have at the moment. That's me with the red hair and the rest of those girls are my sisters. This photo is about a year old, taken at my 21st birthday party, hence the drink in hand. I think possibly it might be too big.

Oh, Megan, my computer won't let me download any attachments. :'(  So I still can't see what you look like. hehe. At least in the one on the board, I can just about make you out! Well, sort of.
My bike was only delivered yesterday, so haven't had that much time to practice on it. I'm trying to get fit! (I'm still laughing at the thought of me on a bike! hehe.)

Oh my gosh, Megan, if you took all the hair off every one of the four of you, you'd have a set of quadruplets!  You all look exactly alike.  And that's a lot of estrogen in one house.  Any brothers at all?  If there were, I might have to feel sorry for the poor fella.  :D

durangal,
yes we do look a lot alike- you wouldn't believe how many people we grew up with still get our names wrong! (you'd think the red hair would give it away for me) It's even harder because we're all so close in age, it goes (in order in the picture) 19, 20, 22, 23 (my poor mother). there are no brothers, and you shouldn't feel sorry for my dad because he gets spoilt.
Scarlet- how did you like tassie? it really is beautiful there, if a little cold.

The only thing I have difficulty with throughout this whole pic thing is that the same women who, byt the way, are really quite attractive seem to think that they're not and that their faces would do some sort of permanent damage to the most sophisticated of cameras, while the very people who really do need a surgeon have no trouble with the vanmity issiue.

Seriously though, I've yet to see any of your photos and find my nerve endings jangling.  You all look just fine to me.

I thought writers are camera shy, i guess not.  It's nice to know that there are people out there who likes to share how they look like. :'(.  I pray that i will one day have the courage to share my picture to all of you ... modesty aside, i look cute -- according to dad!

The key is to stop worrying, because everyone else is a human, too ;)

Me, I'm just a sucker for attention and do all kinds of goofy stuff -- yesterday there was a large medieval festival around here (Hanseatic days in Tartu) and I was there taking pictures. Purchased a helium-filled balloon that would have soared to great heights, had I not fashioned the other end of the colorful string into a noose and spent the day trying to hang myself in public :P

(In case anyone is wondering, the balloon didn't have enough lift to hang me, so I'm still quite alive.)

Hi

I can't post a proper photo because I do not have one on the web but I have figured out how to get this one onto my profile.  I'm afraid I'm not very photogenic and I absolutely hate having my photo taken but I didn't think this one was too bad.

Nice to see everybody!

Ok you lot....yes you, lorraineofkeli, Apocalypse...don't think you're getting away with it either, OzMac!  ;)

Now I have your attention, I just wanted to ask, why is it such a big deal to put your picture on here for everyone to see?  :P

Seriously though, my hubby was watching over my shoulder the other night when I was chatting to OzMac. :o  He knows it's only chit-chat...etc. I'm not about to run off with anyone else, (not that anyone would want to!) so he doesn't worry about that side of things.  :D  You have to agree, it much better 'talking' to someone when you know what they look like. It just seems that bit more friendly.

So go on...ask Carrie what happens if you ignore me.  ;D  Go on, I dare you all...you know you want to.

Angeleyes is watching.... ;D

Post by: "lorraineofkeli" on July 19, 2006, 07:05:39 AM
Angeleyes, you're quite right-it's nice to see what a person looks like when you're talking to them. But at the same time, I find it fuels your expectations of a person--i suppose down to generalising and stereotyping. It's not that we want to stereotype, but it's just human nature isn't it?
  For example, I have an idea in my head of what apocalypse might look like (beautiful of course!  :))
but maybe how I think she'd appear would be completely wrong.  I imagine she'd be wearing rock type clothes for some reason - good training for the imagination.

2) Click on 'Forum Profile Information' on the left hand side
3) Click 'I will upload my own picture'
4) Click 'Browse'
5) Find a pic of yourself on your computer and click okay
6) Then I think click the 'Change Profile' button at the bottom of the screen.

Hi Angeleyes, it was a tongue in cheek comment - wishful thinking and besides he was getting all the attention. I will post a photo but I'll warn you I'm an older guy (57 yrs old) found some grey in my thinning hair but thank the Lord I never feel more than 30. You won't have to hound me my photo will on in a few days. And yes I am shy. You have the right name but you should have left the "eyes" off - Angel says it all. I'm sure beneath the beauty is a beautiful person - tell Hubby he is a lucky guy. Although I'm sure he is equally a nice guy.

 :) Unfortunately I have no means of putting my photo on the screen so you will have to take my word for what I look like. I have mousey short grey hair with blueish green eyes, five foot five inches[might have shrunk a fraction] a bit overweight according to my mother but I think I have lost some, wear spectacles on account that my eyesight is not brilliant. If I am out, especially in sunlight, I then wear reactionary glasses.   That about sums me up I am afraid, you know my age although many say I do not look it. Since I have had my hair cut in a different style, Lesley, the lady for whom I do voluntary work for, says it has taken years off me, in fact Mum said much the same. BFN  Wurzzlegummidge

Post by: scottslittlebrat on August 15, 2006, 10:55:50 PM
I can't believe I'm even responding to this since I've always hated pictures of myself.  I guess it's time to grow up and get over it.....geez, I'm getting close to 50!  I realize everyone is overly critical of their own pictures but it's one of my many insecurities I've held onto all my life.  My birth defect, Poland's Syndrome, could be hidden, for the most part, with clothing since it included the absence of my left pectoral muscle and some ribs.  Truth is, my whole left side is slightly different from the right so my mouth is crooked, my nose is crooked, and my eyes are not the same size.  Things like that really show up in pictures but I had to suck it up and pose for a photographer when my daughter got married 2 years ago.  There are pictures of me, and a few others including my fiance', at my "My Space" site which you can click on next to my profile here in this group.  I don't use that site much but I created it at the request of one of my daughter's friends. 

I hope I have time someday to check out everyone else's pictures.  I could spend 24 hrs. a day on this site and never get bored.  There's soooooo much great info here and so many great people.  I hope I'm able to learn from all you talented writers and eventually post some of my work for review.

Just remembered this, in case you can't see the pic. I went on a first date in July last year with a lady name of Liz. We went for a walk in the woods on the hills above Windermere. It being a warm day, and fighting our way through the trees, at one point I found myself fully occupied trying to swat flies away from my face. Liz looked round and informed me that I looked like Festering Carbuncle. I'd forgotten about 'Viz' till then.. ;D

As for any of you thinking that you can duck the radar that Angeleyes sends out, don't risk your measly pay cheques on it.  She can be very determined and WILL catch you when you least expect it.  It's best to rip out your teeth and get it over with asap.  Then you can move on to the further insanity that awaits you in the Circle.  :)

I'm too shy to put my real photo in this site because I have a big round head, four chubby legs and a tail. Not to mention that I also have a round shell and I look... green.

Hahahahaha... (feeling a bit odd)

For a more accurate idea of my picture look up Dorian Grey in the dictionary.  My wife says there's a picture in the back bedroom what keeps changing.  LOL!!!   :)

Post by: Amie on September 08, 2006, 05:24:17 AM
Hiya Angeleyes.

You know, I've always been a bit nervous about the concept of posting my picture on the internet.  It's not the people on the site, it's all the lurkers that you don't know anything about.  I know this is probably just a combination of unlucky prior experience and my slight paranoia.  You all seem to manage without any internet stalkers after all :)  (I've never seen a site with so many personal photos -- I'm sure that's largely down to you Angeleyes!  And btw, your photo is lovely too)

If I gain up the courage, I may flash one up briefly at some point :)

In the interim:

I am small, female, and vaguely Mediterranean-looking. I've been told that (ha -- this is always a hint that a big brag is coming up) I look like Audrey Hepburn (yes, I know, she doesn't look at all Mediterranean, but a few people have said it, independently of each other, so...).  One person said, (in response to another person mentioning Audrey Hepburn), that I looked like a cross between her and Winona Ryder.  So, I was hugely flattered, because I think both those women are beautiful.  Personally, I think I look just like the girl on the Contadina tomato tins.  :)

ps, I am also desperately unphotogenic

Post by: kilter on September 08, 2006, 11:14:23 AM
I'm not used to being here on a friday night (in Australia, we get there a bit earlier than you guys,) and so I've had a bit of vino (just a touch, of course,) and so I can confidently say, Saturnine, you should...
Flash,Flash,Flash,Flash,Flash,Flash,Flash,Flash,Flash,Flash!
We Australians are all class, or did you notice?
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Nelodra on September 08, 2006, 11:38:34 AM
Saturnine, I'm definitely rather paranoid about posting pictures of myself (or my children) on the internet, too. It's not just you.
That's why I had that lovely picuter of my cat here all the time. I decided to do a picture of myself, but still... it's a view from behind, and my kitties (brother and sister) are much better recognizable from this picture than me  ;)
I will change back to my other picture after the weekend, though.
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Nelodra on September 08, 2006, 11:44:53 AM
OK, I'll be kind, and add a description too:
I'm about 1.69 m (don't know how tall that would be in feet, inches or whatever, sorry), thin built, brown hair just above the shoulders at the moment, green eyes.
I have nice long fingers, which comes in really handy when playing the piano.
I like to wear nice feminne clothing. Long dresses are my absolute favorites! (But no high heels, I want to be able to walk comfortably)
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: kilter on September 08, 2006, 12:01:51 PM
All jokes aside, what are you guys actually worried about? People can't actually track you down because of a picture, can they? OK, I'm getting paranoid now... :(
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Nelodra on September 08, 2006, 12:20:19 PM
Well, for one thing, they could nick your picture, and manipulate several photo's.
Photo's can be manipulated. Bad boys could use my daughter's face, eg, and use that instead of the face of his porn model...
OK, yes, I'm being paranoid, I know... but still...

Hey angel, where did you get that funky face? Unfair! >:( But seriously, I do think you guys are getting a little uptight. If you're worried about your kids faces getting pasted onto something, don't put their faces here (I'm sure the really nasty guys have get better fish to fry, and better pans to fry them in- if you know what I mean.) Although I think this place doesn't have a way to block out unsavoury types, you could just refuse to come here if somebody's bugging you. Maybe I'm being naive. I don't know.

I don't worry about the photos.  Other than, I'm not usually photogenic. Sooner or later, if you are in the business of writing or a writing related business, you customers and peers are going to want to know what you look like.  When I'm looking for a proof reader or editor, for example, I want to know what they look like, even though it doesn't reflect whether they can do the job.  Just like to put a face to a name.

Besides readers like to have the author photo on the back of the book or inside flap of book jacket.  Might as well get used to it.

Angel eyes,

Thanks.  It was just a snap shot taken at the beach with a disposable camera.  I'm glad you like it.  I took a bunch of teasing for putting it on the back of my book rather than a professional photo.  I just thought a real photo wouldn't look right for that book.  I love the beach, too.  There IS something about it, isn't there?

Here is a live beach camera site. I have it set to the setting of my book.  It looks over cast there this morning. You can change it to other beaches along the left side.
http://www.surfline.com/surfline/livecams/report.cfm?alias=sealbeachcam

There is a 3x3 inch square at the upper left where it will run an advertisement, then a live shop of the beach. When it stops you can click on the "screen" where it reads, "reload camera".  It doesn't work as well for dial up.  Also read down for surf report etc. The site is busy with advertisements because it is expensive to run, but if you don't mind, it is kind of interesting. Since the camera is live, you have to factor the time difference...Pacific time is Zulu minus 7 hours.

I don't blame you for using your own photograph...it's lovely.  Thanks you so much for the link to the beach. Unfortunately it seemed quite dull when I was having a look, so will try again today when I get chance. It still blows me away that I can watch places/people on the other side of the world, while sitting in my little house in England. Isn't technology wonderful!

Angeleyes,

Yes, it also makes it possible to go around the world in places like MWC.

Dull, oh so true...storm off the coast, overcast...and it looked like rain on the camera to me.  We're even getting rain here (in the desert) from California.  The link is always on my website, so you can always find it there.

You are probably the only person besides myself who likes that photo.  There is another goofy one on my website homepage.  Which do you like better?

Carrie,

Join the club!  Everyone gave me grief about the sun glasses.  However, it is veeeerrry bright at the beach and I need my eyes to write.  Funny though, 12 months apart, one year very cold and wearing a jacket.  Next year, very warm in a Tee and so bright, needed the hat.  Both pics fit the respective book, but yes, there will be a typical author photo for a work in progress.  Then one in the desert with our kids' Jeep for another WIP.  I figure, might as well have fun with this writing gig.

Oh yeah, I don't have my glasses either.

Maybe it was the format of the pictures.  I had no trouble inserting my picture as an attachment but I had to dig into the help files to find out how to modify my avatar. 
The help link was found on the home page, at the top, left hand side, under the search box. 
There are five links and one is Profile that you should clik to bring up your profile page. 
The menu on the left Shows three main headings PROFILE INFORMATION,MODIFY PROFILE, and ACTIONS with several links underneath each. 
You should only be concerned with the links under MODIFY PROFILE.
Select Forum Profile Information  The text should be self explanitory.
To upload a picture file from your desktop, select the radio button next to the statement "I will upload my own picture."
I was able to see my on picture displayed in the dialog box that pops up.  If not, you could change the format of the picture itself.  Mine was a JPG!  I needed to update my avatar. Sometimes its easier to communicate when you have a picture but lately it takes more motivation. Thanks Angel ;)

Great bit of footage Nelodra. Now we have all seen you, why not post a picture??hehe. I understood every word you were saying. (Well...ok...didn't understand any. But am I right in saying you were talking about home schooling?) You're still an angel in my book!

Thanks Angeleyes.
Yes it was all about homeschooling, and how hard it is in my country to do so legally. (We finally managed to get our exemption from compulsory schooling, but it took a trip to the judge  :-\ )
I wouldn't say I'm an angel; just a mum, and I have my foul moods just like anybody else - only worse perhaps  ;D
(Just read my latest post on the like/dislike thread if you don't believe me...)
Why not post a picture? Well, the truth is... I haven't even got one! Except for the ones from behind, which you've probably seen already, anyway. And my cats are really much nicer to look at then my ugly face  :o

Sadly the clandestine nature of my profession forbids me from revealing my true appearance. This artist’s representation is the closest you will get. I must remain anonymous and incognito, my mask must never be removed (that’s only a metaphorical mask by the way). That way I can go about my business unrecognized, I can slip into the shadows, melt into the darkness and disappear before you even realize I was there.  And no I’m not a stalker.   

I have to go now – I have business to attend to and also, for some reason I have a sudden and unexplained craving for tomatoes.

Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Sir Nigel on October 03, 2006, 07:38:19 AM
How do you solve a problem like Mercedes? It could be you!

According to a line from my now re-written and expanded sketch, Mercedes (whose real name they have just discovered is Glenda) is a ‘bright, incredible looking posh bird with lustrous cascading auburn tresses and a nice bum.’

If you can tick all those boxes the part is yours. Although we can get a stunt bum if that’s a problem.

Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Amie on October 03, 2006, 07:45:04 AM
There will be no need of a stunt bum, I can assure you.  I suppose it depends on tastes, but I'm probably one of the few women I know who likes my own bum, so I'd be very sad to see it replaced with a stunt bum (although, did you have any particular models in mind?)

My hub says my bum's a stunner.  Which is probably more than you wanted to know ;)  In fact, he once told me that the first thing that attracted him to me was my bottom (as opposed to say, my stunning personality or winning smile I suppose.  Hey ho, you gotta start somewhere I guess.  Men are the oddest creatures, I don't know how they avoid constantly walking into doors  ;) )

Let them keep their anonymity if they want! One of the best things about the internet is that you can be whoever and whatever you wish. Yet the first thing we do is try and reduce ourselves to mundane reality. I LIKE to chat with monkeys and dragons and Bruce Willis and odd bits of pottery. It transcends the barriers of race and class and religion and colour and takes us to a wonderful realm of casual idiocy. A place that, for me at least, feels wonderfully comfortable!

It may be that Oliver is actually a  thirteen year odl 17th century Japanese Geisha called Maude O'Riley, who in a strange twist of fate finds herself transported into the body of a Hollywood film star, having to learn to cope with the stresses of international stardom and a modern world-gone-mad, whilst managing to master the art of groin-scratching and the game of 'chase the cigarette butt' in the urinals.

Or not...

For all WE know Candy, the picture you have up MAY be the real you and the picture you showed us so briefly was your pet human in a parallel planet-of-the-apes stylee dimension.

Personally, I like the mystery. ;D

Post by: oliver on November 02, 2006, 04:12:12 AM
LOL Paul, its amazing how perceptive certain people are. I believe it comes from associating with ducks.  ;D

If I had a duck collection I would have Die Hard duck - a cool guy with Nike shades and an attitude. A slinky Suzie Wong duck dressed in soft green tones but she must have small feet caused by bandaging when she was a duckling. She won't be able to swim so she should have her own spot just above water level. Her little shoes must be emerald green. Never refer to her as 'Ducky' she hates that.  ;D

You got me going now!!!

On the subject of urinals why is it that there is always a geek that throws a cigarette butt in there. It cannot pass through the sieve and he knows it. So therefore I don't think its men or boys that throw them in the urinal - we know these things!!  ::) So who is it. Toilet Duck - I knew it!  ;D

Hey enough already.

Going to have some coffee.

Suzie Wong was a well known Geisha girl in the early thirties I believe who later became a madam of a very successful house of ill repute. During the sixties a film was made of her life titled 'The World of Suzie Wong' I think I have my facts right. Oliver

She'd obviously not 'Miss Right'. Even if she had a twin would it be a case of 'Two Wongs don't make a Right?'

Hi everyone!

Looks like I will just have to live with the fact that certain people just won't put their real pictures on here. That's OK, I don't mind...honestly....I really don't.....I don't care if I never see what you all really look like..... :'(

OK, I can't keep asking everyone else to post their pictures when mine is of an angel. So I have put my picture back on...anyone else going to join me?? :D

Good to see you back again Angeleyes. It's not my fault that I look like Bruce Willis!! My eyes are a  little cuter and softer so I cover them with dark glasses and of course I'm more reserved and modest. This is an old photo as I'm a little older now and now I have one or two wrinkles that only go to enhance my looks!!!. My modesty prevented me posting it but you insisted so eventually I did. I haven't got a more recent one but I will work on it.  ;D  ;D  ;D

I'm sure I would be in the movies if it wasn't for my writing!!  ::)  I think I'll ask Angeleyes to write a movie script for me,she was busy with one a while ago.   ::)

Don't worry about them Naomi only you know the truth!!

Hi Naomi, no I think Angeleyes will hold up she will have a co-writer in Paul.   ::) You see the movie will be called Oliver Duck and he will be a cool guy in shades with a coral necklace. He will get around solving crimes in his specially designed Quackmobile.  ;D The movie will be about Scribe Duck and devious team of ducks trying to steal all the work posted on MWC. There will be the usual distractions in the form of georgeous duckies. The only aspect I'm worried about is the final love scene, cause Oliver Duck is very shy and reserved just like the real Oliver.  ::)

Not sure about stealing it, Duck Oliver, sometimes I have trouble giving it away!

It's not deliberate, Angeleyes, it's just that I can't find one small enough that'll load on this site.

I can't think of another way to put this, but it sounds confrontational.  I hope it doesn't upset anyone.


I thought these threads only existed on gaming boards full of 1337 5p34k and flame wars.  Where's the one asking where we all live and how old we are?

Can I ask why this matters to people?  I really couldn't care less what a forum poster looks like.

No. Not me anyway.

Those details are in the profiles of members, if they choose to add those details.

Writers are crazy nutters, and get involved with each other, especially if they share the same genre or whatever. It's nice to have a cup of coffee together, but often we live half way around the world from each other. My best guess is that on the inside we are crazy and curious, and want to see what our fellow writers look like, especially those fellow writers we admire on the board.

I don't particularly care either. In the beginning I was quite sure I'd never reveal my name or any personal information, but loosened up a bit. The people here are nice. Rarely do you see a flame war. In fact I haven't seen any!

I hadn't thought of that, I don't click a profile unless the page loads slowly and I mis-click one.

Me either, one of the reasons it never occured to me that this type of thread would exist here.  Live and Learn.

Hmmm, this is me being different again.  Round hole, horse shaped peg.

This is my first attempt to play with the quote tags.  Hopefully it worked - Yay!  It did.

Way to go! :D

If you want to learn more tags and write them in manually, you could search Google for BB Forum tags. I believe that's what they are. Or it's a different forum, not a BB, the tags are curiously the same.
Title: Re: What do you all look like??
Post by: Fair to Middling on July 17, 2007, 11:05:48 AM
Yeah, sometimes forums use the same tags, sometimes you end up with +/I+ and +/quote+ strewn throughout a post when the tags are different.  I usually go for the Kevorkian Dodge and avoid using them altogether.

Hmmm... good question Fair to Middling. I guess it's me who started this thread, so I'll answer your question. Firstly, I find writing to be quite a solitude affair. I'm sure you know what I mean. We slave for hours over the keyboard and never see another human face for what can be hours, and in some cases, days, at a time. So I sat with my lovely cup of tea and began to wonder who else is sitting there at their computers...writing.
Writing, for me, is a hobby. I don't take myself seriously at all, and I have to say that I have met some lovely people here at MWC.(You know who you are! ;D) Putting a face to a name isn't the 'be all and end all', it's just me being a bit curious, that's all.
Anyway, lovely to meet you, even if I never get to see what you look like. :D I hope to be around a little bit more, as I'm thinking of writing again now.  ;)

Hugs, Ann. x

Good to hear you have time to write again after finishing your classes. Hopefully, we'll see you around MWC more often now.  :D

Hi Nadine and Ellie, thanks for that.

The studying I've been doing was to become a Reiki practitoner and EFT therapist. I'm now working for myself. I love what I do. Are you still gardening Ellie? Bet you haven't enjoyed the recent wet weather we have been having.

Grace is doing really well ;D We went to America in March and she loved it, (as did my other two) but finding gluten free food outside of the Disney parks was....difficult!

Ellie, it's funny you say you were thinking about Scarlet the other day...I was too. Strange, eh!

Sooooo....have I missed anything exciting? Oh yes, congrats on being made a moderator Nadine!! (Sorry it's a bit late to say it, but I have been busy :D)

I had a little peek at my novel that is stashed away in a drawer, and thanks to a member on karlsforum, I've decided to start editing it now. :o

Well guys, it's nice to be back. Hope to catch up with everyone soon. Hugs, Ann. :-* :-*
