Well, I'm not technically new, but...
« on: 06 Aug 2015, 00:36 »

Hi.

I've been lurking on this forum for some time (look at my registration date, then add about a year... yeah) and I started reading QC in mid-2008. I'd be content to keep lurking, but it feels weird that I read RELATE and CHATTER and such without any of you knowing anything about me. So I thought I should at least introduce myself a little.

I'm Rebecca. I'm in my early-mid twenties. I love books and music and old houses. I'm anxious, depressive, severely perfectionistic. I am not usually particularly talkative on forums, but I will try to make an effort to participate a little bit more.

(I also happen to be Detachable Felix's real-life girlfriend, so yeah. That's a thing.)

Congrats on delurking! :D I made the mistake of googling "evil ducky" and won't be able to sleep tonight.

Can confirm pretty much all of this. Glad you finally de-lurked!

Uh oh, Felix, now you've done it. Wait until it's morning in Kiwi-land...

*Re-forges lug wrench from pool of molten metal, hands it to Kugai* There you go. Have at it!

(I wish I actually had sufficient metalworking skills to make a new wrench. I don't. I made a terrible candelabrum once from wrought iron, but that's it.)

Have fun in our little playground!

We don't have any threads for old house fanciers, do we? Do you just live in them, or do you work on them?

Do you just live in them, or do you work on them?

Neither, alas. I can't afford to live in an old house (they are very expensive where I live) and I have no practical skills that would enable me to restore, renovate or revitalise them. I just admire them, visit them when they are visitable (e.g. houses of friends, historical houses open to the public) and hope that one day I win the lottery and can afford an old house of my own.

I think what I like about them, beyond the architecture, is the feeling that I am in a place that has  existed for decades or centuries - that people have come and gone and left their marks for me to find. From the particular choice of kitchen cabinets or fireplace surrounds to "1608" clumsily carved into a pillar at Bath Abbey (not a house, it's true), I feel like I can get a tiny insight into the life of someone I will never have a chance to meet, because they lived and died long before I was born. Does that make sense?
