...because I've been having a serious case of stage fright for some time now.

I've been reading Hatrack for about six years now, and have never really felt comfortable enough to post. Partly because I'm scared of the Grammar Police, and I also admire a lot of people who post here--which makes me a little nervous posting myself. Funny, I've been to twenty-four schools in my life, made a ton of new friends, and it's ann online community which gives me the most stress.

I'm also not sure how to begin. Do I tell you about myself, or do I just start posting? If there are any Hatrackers out there who would like to hold my hand a bit, it would be greatly appreciated.

Here's some tidbits about myself to start the introduction process:

I was given Ender's Game at age 12 by my sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Lindsay. Best. Teacher. Ever. I have since read most of OSC's work.

I was "raised" Morman until the age of 14, but my mother was semi-active at best, and it never felt totally right for me. I still lovingly remember "I am a Child of God", though.

I am a mother of a beautiful six year old boy, and have always wanted to chat with some of you Hatrack mom's out there.

So, here's to finally doing it!

Hi, Hatrack!

Thanks, Matt...way to make a girl feel loved. There was also an extra "n" attached to another word...but you only get the points for "Mormon".

Hey, no problem. I misspelled "misspelled" initially and had to edit my post to fix it before I was found out for the spelling fraud that I am.

Hello and welcome. I think Matt was just being funny since you said you were nervous about the grammar police.

You sound like just the sort of person to fit in here.

Welcome to Hatrack! There's no one right way to go about becoming a member of the community, but it never hurts to share a bit about yourself as you've done. I'm sure that you'll fit in here quite well.

Welcome! Six years is a long time to lurk, but I think you'll find we're mostly nice. My boys are 10 and 7 (the seven year old will be eight in two weeks, as he keeps reminding me). I first came to Hatrack when he was a baby.

Glad to meet you!

To be totally honest, I'm suprised I picked NOW to say hi- as it seems like Hatrack has had its fair share of touchiness lately. But it's also given a lot of you a chance to shine with the way you've handled yourselves. Sorry if that sounds bold. Just an observation. I'm very excited, though. This has been on my To-Do list for, well, years.

Unless you are a some sort of kitten eating, book defiling, Harry Potter spoiling minion of Satan. In that case, you are probably better off keeping that to yourself.

Incidentally, it's spelled underwear. And I guess we're even, because I'm picturing you in my underwear too.

This is why I love Hatrack! Yes, it is spelled underwear...and until two seconds before I posted this thread, I agonized over "ware" or "wear". I even changed it once, changed it back, thought about going to the dictionary, but then said NO. That's what I get for being lazy.

Well, unless she's polite about it.

So landybrane, how did you fist stuble onto Hatrack, way back when?

I was searching out OSC, and found this website. I've lurked and left and lurked some more until I started to feel like I was already a part of this community...without the whole "community" part. [Dont Know]

Over the past couple of years, I've grown up a lot, and I think now I'm ready to talk. Before, I thought I knew everything. Now, I know that's not true, and it's been a very liberating thing for me. Now, I'm really coming into myself, and learning who I am. It's got me wanting good convesation.

Just so no one thinks I'm some Harry Potter hating kitty-eater...The seventh book came out on my birthday, and I was one of the first in line with a big dopey grin on my face. And I have two big, fat kitties who have yet to be eaten. (Although, they are plump enough!)

Welcome to hatrack landybraine! Incidentally without actually looking carefully at your name I thought it was initially, "ladybrain." Do you get that alot?

Glad to have you join the community, remember your child is at the appropriate age to be enrolled in Battle School, better get on that. [Big Grin]

I tend to mostly lurk too. I read the boards all the time- but fairly rarely post. I'm on a posting binge if I post like 10 times in just a couple of days.

Hello and welcome! If you're anxious about your spelling, many of us use ieSpell and/or Google Toolbar (and/or something for Firefox I can't remember), free downloads that can check your spelling for you before you post. [Smile]

As for grammar, yours seems fine to me. [Wink]

I missed the spirit of the thread, because I was trying to be welcoming.

So, let me do this properly, then. I do not match today - white bra, pink cotton undies - really pink, not formerly white but washed with red t-shirt pink.

If you care at all, that is currently covered up by a pair of dark jeans and a purple t-shirt with "Springville Tigers" spelled out in gold. It's homecoming, and we're getting ready to go to the high school football game. Go Tigers!
