Title: Hello from Canada!
Post by: Meket on September 01, 2010, 11:34:27 pm
Hello!  I'm Jenn, from way up on Canada's west coast - pleased to meet you all!  It's been a bit of a spiritual winding road for me (or more like a rollercoaster at times) but I've been feeling some none-too-subtle shoves in this direction for some time now (even "none-too-subtle" is probably an understatement, "kicks in the head" would be more accurate).

So... hi!  I've been reading the forums voraciously for a while now, so I'm still a little overwhelmed by all the information, not to mention still trying to get my head around all the new Faces visiting my quiet little house, so please forgive me if I sound really scatterbrained (if it's any consolation I usually sound at least a tad confused).

Looking forward to chatting with all you lovely folks!  :D

Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome!  :D

It's good to know that the proverbial clue by four is a common occurrence, and not Someone pointing out that I'm dense as lead.  ;)  I think the most overwhelming part is trying to figure out Who's taking the swings at me!  Hopefully that part will come with time...

Yay for other BCkin!  :D  

Thank you again for all the welcomes, you guys all give me the warm fuzzies.  ^_^  Sooner or later I'll try to post something other than "omg thanx for welcomz"... maybe when I'm done powering through 40-some-odd pages of posts in the Q&A forum and know which of my 1000000000 questions have been asked before (which I'm sure Niti will be grateful for as I'm likely driving her nuts by now on the stupid question front).

All the happy posts and smilies certainly made my day after a hellacious shift at work.  ^_^

Em hotep and welcome, Jenn. Sorry for being slow off the mark. usually I'm more on point when Canadians reveal themselves here. I hope you will enjoy your stay!

Ha, Niti, I was going to say that agonizing was a bad way to put it, but perhaps the most honest.  :)

Khumekitu - I'm actually from Newfoundland originally, so I think the other end of the country is just as (if not more) fab.  :D

The silly purr-faced little brat in my icon is Samael, aka. Sami, aka. Princess Fussypants.  She's the baby girl of my two rescues, and I'm sure Niti can attest that she looks just as strange in person.  ;)  I'll be sure to pass on the nice comments about her, though she really doesn't need the ego boost!

*happy dance*

(A tall water bottle filled with extra-stong lemonade is certainly not the best thing to chug before visiting forums!  SUGAR!)

I grew up in NB, in the countryside near the Bay of Fundy. I've always wanted to escape to a large city though. The time I spent living in one of the small cities around here was great. Unfortunately, large cities are in short supply here, as are jobs. What's it like in BC? I've noticed that there are several members that live there. Whereas I think I'm the only NBer here  :cry:. We need to get a few more Maritimers here to even things out. Make things more fair  :D.

I quite like living in BC - it's big, it's beautiful, rains a bit much but overall it's nice.  I do miss the quiet of the smaller cities sometimes, and noticed it especially when I visited St. John's in July (for the George Street Festival whoo!), but overall it's a cool province.  Expensive, though (or maybe I just don't make enough money ;) ).

You can never have enough Maritimers!  :D

When I said smaller I meant like Moncton, Dieppe kind of smaller. I have been to Halifax once, it was great. I wanted to stay. It is actually big enough to have transgender support groups and a trans clinic there. One day I'll get to a big city and stay there. One day  :D.
