Hi?
« on: 16 Apr 2015, 22:49 »

So I guess now that I have made this account I may as well use it, huh?  So I shall begin by saying hello, my name is Amy and I have been reading QC since like 2009 I think and I started lurking around the forum during the whole recent Faye hospital dealie, and now that I have made an account everything looks different than it did and it's intimidating as heck.
Also, I am an awkward child who is bad at forums and good at seeming like an idiot, so there's that.  I apologize in advance if I suck too much.
But yeah.  Hi?

And don't worry, there are plenty of awkward children around here so you're not alone  :)  ;)

You should have seen some of my early posts here. I'm surprised that I didn't get laughed off the Internet, but I'm still here. They're a nice bunch.

Thank you all for the kindness and the welcomes and the indecipherable something-or-other!  :)

It means 'all awkward children are welcome here', I think.

Welcome to the forums! Read through the rules, mind the gap, guard your lug wrench, keep in mind the strip's been around for over a decade now, and remember: Google Translate is your friend.

Ah, okay.  Thank you!

What's a lug wrench?  And why should I guard one?

Kugai adds "*melts your lug wrench*" to his posts when he greets newcomers to the forum, iirc. Not sure though.
Welcome though.

I have a lot of issues. Sometimes I'm a jerk without meaning to be one, so call me out on it, because that helps me learn. Also I talk way too much.
There used to be invisible text here but i deleted it because it was a stupid gimmick anyway.

I don't do it all the time as i try to vary my Greeting to Newbies, but it sorta has become something of a tradition.  ;D ;)

I sorta use a sequence from the Movie Starman.

I don't know anything about any movies, so I don't know what Starman (which I have never even heard of before) has to do with lug wrenches.  Also I still don't know what a lug wrench is.
Is it time for me to go hide under my rock again?

I actually did Google it already, thanks.  I still don't understand.  Is I an idiot?

Please bear with us! There are a few running inside jokes but don't let them make you feel excluded.
