Nice to meet you all!
« on: July 23, 2018, 06:14:51 AM »
Hi I'm J.R. Darewood.

I like Skyrim and ice cream and I read fantasy bc I miss being 10 and playing Dungeons and Dragons.  Anyway I look forward to meeting you all for the very first time, since this would be my very first introduction. And no my name isn't Redwood I have no idea what that's about

And @ScarletBea if you write out my name it still summons me even if you don't get a cool popup
@J.R. Darewood.

Welcome Jetsmoothy J R Darewood, we love new people in the Forum. What are your favourite ice cream flavours? Masterchefau has a recipe for one with prosciutto, apples and maple syrup, topped with crunchy bar of pork crackling. Does that appeal?

Hahahha jet smooth and THAT MUSIC!!!
"The car that takes it easy everywhere you take it."
"You can treat it rough-- it'll take it all. Holden gives you the power to move, and the strength to go all day."
and when he starts singing at the end.  I was dying.  ***how could having the name Holden Kingswood be a bad idea????***

Re prosciutto??? in ice cream??? I need someone to hold me down to keep me from getting on a plane to Australia right now  My favs used to be pint-sized like ben and jerry's urban burbon but I've been trying to cut my sugar since 1-2 pints a day is probably a bit much so I've been doing the gelato single cone thing.  Froyo for the most part doesn't excite me but there's this Greek Yogurt gelato that is like... well i can't explain it but is amazing and 1000 times better than froyo especially if you mix it with passionfruit sorbetto.  there's also this almond fig flavor thats pretty good. but my fall back is turkish coffee-flavored, mixed with churro-flavored (with fresh churros mixed in) ice cream sandwiched between two buttery soft dark chocolate chunk with caramel and sea salt cookes,  tbh. mmmmm ice cream....

@Eclipse that ad was actually a little too spot on because 1) I will probably be about that age by the time i finish editing my WIP and 2) i'm pretty sure even the yellow pages won't help me find a store that carries my stuff :)  I love the old timey narrator!

I’ve got an image in my head of you going round f-f members houses in 20 years time asking if there got a J.R.Darewood book in their libraries, With Scarletbea shaking her head.

Noooooooooooooo

I'll still be rewriting the beginning of the first novel in the 7-novel series.

BTW is the signature with the moving parts too much? Is the background too dark to see the logo?  I'm not good at editing gifs.
