    Hello all.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Wreybies, May 19, 2013.

    I'm hardly new but I've been away since God was a little boy. I got a bad case of moderator burn-out and it kinda turned me from my writing, so I needed a sabbatical. Don't know how many folks are still with the forum from back in them days, but for those of you who are, hello again! :D

    It goes VERY well for me, thank you! Since my previous incarnation as Wreybies the Super-Mod I have since changed jobs. My old job was sucking the essence from me like Skeksis on a Gelfling. :D I now work solely for the OSDOJ, District of Puerto Rico. I am no longer tied to that hateful telephone and I am given the respect of professionalism that I myself give to my clients who are D.A.'s. It's great. :D How are you??

    LOL :) Yes, we did! Seriously, I completely respect what you have to say on that subject. I really do think we are of like mind. We may come at it from different angles, but what a boring world it would be if we all "came at it" from the same angle, aye? ;)

    Yes, and I often say (even here on this forum) that it would be a boring world if we all agreed all the time. I give virtually no thought to theme. I feel that it just kind of emerges (or doesn't).

    :D That last bit made me giggle. It's true, sometimes the theme just never arrises. Trust me. I've a stack of unfinished 'novels' that never managed to give me that most rare of fruits, a theme. ;)

    Welcome back, Wreybies.
    I'm new here myself, trying to integrate myself in. Hope you don't mind :p
    Looking forward to getting to know you.

    I remember you mentioning your old job around the forum a few times. It's great that you're liking your new job.

    Pretty good. The weather has been great lately, and I've been working on my goal of losing 10-15 lbs by running/jogging and playing a lot of basketball.

    Excellent! I'm always pleased to hear someone making a positive goal and going for it. I myself could use a little of your gumption. The 'middle years' make for a much harder time in loosing those extra pounds added during the holidays. LOL :D I mean, It's May and I'm still talking about Christmas weight!
