  2. Ji, Just wanted to say I'm happy you are here with us at DM. The CG Thank you, Ryrin! You help make me feel at home!
  3. LOL! I read that first line as pea hicks and thought, 'oh dear'.
  4. Most people here (on DM) are calling me Ji. Hi back, Bard Babe! Browns seem to be a quiet bunch.
  5. I have two daughters but no pets. We are fans of cats, though, so being under cats would be some consolation to being under the weather. Hope you feel better soon, Cindy!
  6. Awww! Thank you, Elgee. *not quite comfortable snugglebiting in return*
  7. It seems a lot of places are geologically overdue for 'The Big One'. What a relief to read this: http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/faqs_misconceptions.html
  8. In 1811 and 1812, a series of earthquakes emanated from New Madrid, Missouri, and were felt as far away as Ohio and South Carolina. The soil beneath the Mississippi River rose, temporarily changing its course so that it flowed backward.
  9. Hello Red Ajah! I am Jivenrah - doing the Initiate homework. Am I right that DM Reds do the work of the book Blues? Get involved in causes? Trying to save the world? Carry on! I've felt very welcomed by the Reds since joining last month and wanted to thank you collectively. I've 'met' Elgee, Torrie, Chaelca, Mystica, and Moon. Hope I'm not leaving anyone else off this list. Thank you for reaching out to a newbie!
  10. Dear Reds, You have been absolute DEARS since I've joined Dragonmount and I will risk snugglebites in order to give you hugs. Sincerely, Jivenrah
  11. Hello, Brown Ajah! My name is Jivenrah and I am an Aspirant to the White Tower. I love to read and the Wheel of Time series occupies a very special place in my heart, which is why I am here. I love the Special Collections here in the Brown Library and plan to spend much time perusing the shelves. Thank you for the Annex for us Aspirants. It looks like a very welcoming place and I hope it remains open. Since graduating from college I have tried to keep up with learning Welsh and have a hard time doing so without someone to practice with, but I keep hoping. Of the Browns I believe I have only met Wren, very briefly. If you have any questions about me, please just ask!
  12. Are aspirants allowed to wish they could channel? If so, I would channel all my laundry dry.
  13. I've just finished Daniel Abraham's The King's Blood (The Dagger and the Coin #2) and am beginning The Tyrant's Law (#3). As the series progresses I find it more difficult to read what he's doing to his characters, but I'll stick with it to find out what happens as not EVERYTHING is horrible/painful/emotionally traumatic. From what I have read this series is supposed to go to at least five books. Daniel is good friends with George R. R. Martin and I fear how much Martin has influenced Daniel's writing. I began reading the Game of Thrones series about fifteen years ago and found it far too depressing to continue with and I think The Dagger and the Coin series might be headed for the same depressing continual-killing-off-of-favorite/important characters. On another note, I have finished reading tEotW out loud to my family and we're halfway through tDR. So, with regard to my reading challenge for 2016 I am 7 out of 36.
  14. Thank you, Wren! Hi and welcome jivenrah! I'm very pleased you're participating in the book challenge this year This is the thread where you make your "challenge post." You list how many books you want to read, and as the year goes on, you edit the post to list and total the books you have read so far. We only make one post each in this thread so we can tally up the totals at the end easier. If you want to discuss the books you've read, or anything else about the book challenge, and I hope you do you can do that here: http://www.dragonmount.com/forums/topic/96472-brown-ajah-book-challenge-2016-discussion-and-questions/ Let me know after you've read this so I can clean up the extra posts from here. Or maybe wren knows how to move them to the discussion thread? R & U
