Hello all!
« on: March 20, 2015, 01:37:30 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm Roger, I'm a dentist, and I've been a lurker in these forums for a long while, so I thought it was about time I introduced myself.

I'm an avid reader of Fantasy, and although I have no interest in writing myself, I like to follow discussions about the books that I enjoy. I also enjoy taking a look at some of the entries in the Writing Contest, so I'll try to vote regularly  :)

My better-half is also an active member around here, so I feel a certain familiarity with the place.

 ;)

*waves* hi Roger! :D

Do you want to remain anonymous or can I mention who your better (really? ;)) half is?
Hehe

(I've just returned from the dentist now, so glad to be rid of them now! At least now I have a new tooth ;D)

Welcome!

And 1 Like for trying to vote regularly.
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

I immediately flashed on the elf from Rudolph singing the Dentist song from Little Shop of Horrors:o
The Lurking Dentist. (Not a good thing.  ;D )

So, welcome into the light!  ;)
Glad to have you join the fun.

And since you do it, there hasn't been a spam topic! Good work! ;D

And welcome, BBH (Bea's better half). ;) You're not the first couple we have over here. It's great when couples share a hobby. :)

He's actually mine, @xiagan :P But @ScarletBea already knew from our conversations  :)

Anyway, don't expect him to post much... But I'm glad I finally managed to convince him to make a profile of his own, instead of browsing the forums with my account  ;)

Ah, young love. Glad to have you with us Roger. We'll try not to take too many pictures of the happy couple while you peruse our shelves.

welcome!  Like Elfy (and others!) said, its nice to have couples posting separately accounts.  And I post a whole lot less than Elfy does, but I do read a lot of the topics too.

Welcome Roger - Dentists are top of my list just now, a certain lady dentist here has saved me from a world of pain lately ;D

Haha, great! Now I don't know who is whose better half. ;) Maybe you can be each other's better half. :)

Anyway, it's cool to have you here Roger. Maybe we could talk about fantasy dentists. They must be brilliant since I never read about a main character with tooth ache. :D

*deleted reply* It's far too early in the morning for coherent thought (at airport now), I'll leave that for later when I'm at my computer at home...
Nope, xiagan, all the portuguese people around F-F are gay, hehe
