Hello There

Postby wrathofpengy » Mon Nov 28, 2005 3:12 pm

I just joined the site and thought I'd come by and introduce myself. My name is Rachael and I'm currently attending the University of Texas Pan American, working towards a BA in English and Public Relations.

For the most part, I have limited myself to short stories, poetry, and articles, but I am trying to branch out into something larger.

I look forward to meeting all of you and getting to be active on this forum. Good day to all!

What is it with penguins on this board??

Um . . . Hi, Wrath . . . welcome to Wordtrip. You'll find all sorts of interesting threads here . . . some helpful, some less-helpful, some just plain fun. Feel free to poke around and join in the insanity.

You a Kerouac fan, or just like the quote?

English AND Public Relations? You must be a Gemini . . .

Happy Wordtripping.

Hehe, gotta love the penguins! My room is full of them.

Anyway, yes I am a Kerouac fan and yes, I am a Gemini. Very insightful, Mudge.

And thank you all for the warm welcome.

/welcome, w.o.p! Kerouac, eh? He's from my town where they either love him or can't stand him. I worked with his wife, while the great man wandered. She worshipped him. He, um, played the field. :roll:
Hope you'll enjoy our poetry and other challenges. They help to get one in gear sometimes.

Literature: The Truth disguised as Fiction

Public Relations: Fiction disguised as Truth.

Classic contradiction. Has "Gemini" written all over it.

Well, I'm always in favor of Penguin invasions as long as they aren't of the Batman variety!

Careful Mudge or we'll all peck your eyes out. :D Didn't you know I put a call out to all my feathered friends to unite and make your life miserable? :tux:

Welcome home Wrath! Feel free to play around here. Take a dip in the writing challenges....or waddle on over to the book club....or just hang out in the coffee shop or bar. Welcome!

Is THAT why someone keeps turning the thermostat down to "Antarctic" in here?

Okay, I admit that the thermometer incident was me, but penguins sunburn easily.

Hey, I never said I was miserable . . . I happen to think penguins are cute.

But I HAVE seen "Batman Returns" a number of times . . . so maybe I'm a little nervous.

Twice, actually. I thought it was done exceptionally well for a documentary of the type.

Hahaha, I love that part.

I was referring more to the part where the penguins actually made it to Antarctica and noted 'this sucks'!

Hi! I pop in every few months, make a few posts, and am absent again for a long time, but maybe we will bump into each other again. I too am from Texas. Yeah Texas! (How many of us does that make? Maybe we can take over...) :twisted:
