Welcome to the site! Don't be put off by smartarsed replies when you post. For some members it's their role in life. The more attractive you are the less harsh straight members of a.net will be to you, so get your face quickly on one of the self-pic threads which appear almost weekly.

Good luck!

If I were describing myself, I'd use much more hyperbole. 'Fantastic', 'terrific', 'God's gift' and so on.

You seem to be confusing the pronouns 'you' and 'I'. Remember to read things in your head before you post them, m'kay?

Hey there,

Yeah... there's a very few of us women who are regulars here, but we're generally a friendly lot. You've met Bev--Alcregular and Pilot Kaz are both from the U.K., too. ScatletHarlot and Vaporlock are from Canada; Carmenlu (I think that's right) hails from... (I just know I'm gonna screw this up), Venezuela, I think. Redngold is American, and I get to keep my ex-pat status for another five weeks or so before I head home to the states as well.

Probably I missed a couple of people, but I've been hanging out in Greece drinking Ouzo and writing haiku, so I'm probably brain damaged. At any rate, though, welcome aboard!

Just as long as you are in full understanding that your national football team sucks and that American politics is the only important thing going on in the world you should be ok here.

ohh and of course the whole A vs. B thing but that should be kept on the aviation forums.
